    Kiss the Latino Vote Goodbye, Mittens!

    Etch A Sketch: Romney Camp Concedes Kobach Is Adviser; Kobach Concedes Romney Wants SB-1070 Nationwide

    As Mitt Romney pivots to the general election and tries to close his big deficit with Latino voters, his campaign spent this week apparently backtracking on two key aspects of its controversial immigration policy. But it now appears to have come back full circle to its original positions.


    First, the campaign tried to distance itself from controversial immigration activist Kris Kobach, the author of Arizona and Alabama’s harsh anti-immigration laws. Romney had touted Kobach as an informal adviser, but this week said he was merely a “supporter” not an “adviser.” ThinkProgress and others spoke with Kobach, who disputed the claim and said he was still advising the campaign, but nonetheless Romney’s staff again stood by their initial statement.


    But today, a spokesperson agreed in an email to CNN that Kobach is indeed an “informal adviser.”


    Secondly, the Romney campaign asserted that when the presumed presidential nominee said during a Republican primary debate that Arizona is “a model,” he was referring to the state’s E-Verify law, not its anti-immigration law, the Kobach-backed SB-1070.


    But newly-confirmed immigration adviser Kobach disputed this as well. “He stated very publicly that Arizona’s law should be a model for how the federal government enforces its immigration laws. And he’s correct there too,” Kobach told CNN of SB-1070. Indeed, Romney’s “self-deportation” policy shares the same basic approach as Arizona’s law.

    If Romney gets elected, are you going to cut your throat?

    You might ask Alias or Mister D, they may take that bet. But don't expect them to honor it.

    It's a sure thing. Just as surely as I don't have ten thousand bucks to squander on bets.

    This proves what some old dead Greek dude said: "Democracy dies once the people realize that they can vote themselves the contents of the public treasury."

    Of course he said it in Greek, not English.

    What plans do those who advocate a government program for everything have when the USD crashes?

    I'll bet you your country continues to deteriorate. What's disturbing about white progressives is that they ridicule and laugh at those trying to bail out the sinking boat we're all in.

    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.
