That Didn’t Take Long

posted by on November 9 at 9:28 AM

After the last Democratic debate there was a lot of talk about where Clinton, Obama, and Edwards stand on drivers licenses for illegal immigrants. Just in case there was any doubt, Mitt Romney is now using this ad to remind voters that he’s against drivers licenses for illegal immigrants—and much more:

I'm Mitt Romney, and I think you should pay $10 for a head of lettuce.

Jesus Christ. Why the hell am I so turned on by that schmuck?

Am I taking crazy pills here? Am I the only one who doesn't give a RATS ASS WHETHER ilegal imigrants have drivers licences.

As far my stance on illegal immigrants, I would rather they did nothing at all. They never bothered to enforce the laws we had, now we get to see "real" free economics at play. If legitimize illegals, you allow them to take advantage of our social programs, and bankrupt them because most live below the poverty line. You can't logistically export them .... nor do people who them really want to export them. They don't talk about this, yet of course they probably vote republican. So until Americans start going to Mexico for jobs ... there is nothing you can do.

I want Mitt to ejaculate on my face.

Indeed, Moltarr. Indeed.

So, Mitt, I take it you'd rather that illegal immigrants drive with no license and no insurance, then? Great plan. That makes me feel much safer on the roads.

Not that he had it in the first place, but promising to cut funding to sanctuary cities just lost Mitt the San Francisco vote.

I'm sure he's crying himself to sleep over the loss.

He will pick those SF votes back up from his ads on no, seriously!

Get used to it. Bashing immigrants, legal or illegal, is a hugely popular strategy, and as the candidates discover this they're going to be falling all over themselves trying to bash the hardest.

Right around the time he opposed this in Massachusetts, it was revealed that his gardening staff (yes, more than one person on his gardening team, natch) was comprised of illegal immigrants.

It's funny how easy it is to bash a demographic that could never vote against you.

I want to have an affair with Mitt. I won't tell any one. Fucking HOT.

Wait, wait, wait -
he opposes AMNESTY? Well, I suppose that makes sense. Why should we allow refugees from wars his party starts get to escape to somewhere [theoretically] safer than their war-torn homeland? Preposterous!

What a douche. What a total, utter douchebag.
