RSS icon Comments on Adventures in Race Relations with Mitt Romney


Well, Florida was already important, but he also didn't know how poorly he'd do in South Carolina no matter what. If he'd known he'd be in a battle for third place last Saturday, he'd have become pro-immigration in a heartbeat.

At the parade, did Mitt refer to any of his opponents as "jive turkeys"? That would have been great.

Ladies and gentlemen, please hold your nose for Mitt Romney!

I hate everything about Florida. I wish it didn't exist.

"you got some bling bling there" and "who let the dogs out"??? I think that's probably the most black people Romney's ever been close to ever in his life.

I'm surprised Romney didn't say in Spanish "Join the Mormon church or be deported".

This guy is an idiot. His lieutenant governor lost in a landslide because the voters in Massachusetts wanted desperately to get rid of his administration. He'll certainly carry the Republicans in MA when they go to their primary, but he will definitely not put the state in play if he gets to the general election.

Callate la boca sobre Sr. Romney y sus mensajes en espanol. Aprobar un requisito que los imigrantes apriendan ingles, no es el mismo que prohibir el espanol. Pues, no hay ninguna falta de consistencia.

Si tienes un "link" demostrando que el Sr. Romney ha dicho que nadie deberia hablar espanol en los EEUU, proveanoslo.

(Nota: correciones seran bienvenidos; claro que hago muchos errores, esp. con este subjuntivo fantasmatico, que no tenemos en ingles).

Right you are, @9. Romney has flipped and flopped on this issue it's kind of hard to tell where the hell he is. According to a Boston Herald article in April 2002, Mitt Romney *refused* to endorse a ballot initiative replacing bilingual education with English immersion. His spokesman said it went “too far.” Investors Business Daily also noted his opposition a month later. In June 2002, Mitt reversed course according to the Associated Press.

Every time you guys link to Sullivan, Jesus beats a puppy to death with a whiffle ball bat.

Yeah, but it's a pit bull puppy, so who cares?

Every hispanic person should know that Mitt Romney doen't like us. How do we know that? When Mitt came to Massachusetts, he supported RON UNZ in his atempt to freeing America from Spanish language. He began that process by cutting the Bilingual program in the state.
