KTH: Romney's stance on immigration issues

Where exactly does Mitt Romney stand on immigration issues? As Anderson Cooper reports, it can be tough to tell.

    There is a new dance out called the Romney flip-flop. You lay on the floor and flip-flop around like a dying carp not knowing where you will end up at when the dance is over.

    Paul Begala is the SPIN DOCTOR!! He is almost delusional in his attack on Mitt Romney. Does he not understand the issue of balancing state rights with federal rights? Didn't our founding fathers set up our system in such a way to provide FREEDOM for the citizens of states to enact laws for the protection of their citizens while the federal government enacts laws for the protection of the nation? States vote on issues ALL THE TIME that have national implications and you don't ask if they should be "a national model" (e.g., gay marriage in CA vs. NY; which should be our National Model?). Bottom line, Paul Begala is scared that Obama is going to lose in November and he has to come up with some pretty big distraction tactics... Shame on you Paul... Who is the liar?

    If you read Mitt Romneys book, No Apology 2010, you'll understand that it is in his nature to contradict himself. In the beginning of  Chapter 5, he makes a point how innovation can be characterized as creative destruction. He goes on to say, that the loss of a job in a declining field will effectively transition that person into the emerging field. Then he pleads the case of how he was a pastor at his church and often consoled couples who faced unemployment. So he understands unemployment is traumatic, he says this in an effort not to be seen as a numbers only person. The way he structures this pastor excerpt is just a way to softly transition the fact that he does understand how traumatic unemployment is. Much like when he said he was worried about seeing a pink slip during the debates. He also states that the immigration policy we have is backwards, because we should staple a green card to exchange students who study physics and math not force them to go back to they're country of origin. It sounds to me like that's similar to the dream act, which he criticized Rick Perry for!  In the end we should all know he is a spineless, heartless, fat-cat business guru who will further deregulate government stretching the already immense income inequality gap!!!
