Well, he doesn't speak, but he allows his staff to write and publish words in his own name. Hours after the decision came down, Mitt Romney has finally released a statement to the press about today's Supreme Court ruling. Here it is:
Today’s decision underscores the need for a President who will lead on this critical issue and work in a bipartisan fashion to pursue a national immigration strategy. President Obama has failed to provide any leadership on immigration. This represents yet another broken promise by this President. I believe that each state has the duty–and the right–to secure our borders and preserve the rule of law, particularly when the federal government has failed to meet its responsibilities. As Candidate Obama, he promised to present an immigration plan during his first year in office. But 4 years later, we are still waiting.
That's a whole lot of nothing. I mean, that's about as much nothing as you'll ever see in one paragraph. Translated to human, it reads "I have policies I'm not going to tell you about, but I'll handle this way better than President Obama. Trust me." We still have no idea what Mitt Romney's immigration policy is. It's mind-boggling to think that he believes he can get through a whole presidential election without stating his beliefs on major issues. It's even more mind-boggling to think that he might be able to get away with it.
