Yesterday Romney appeared on Face the Nation in an outside interview with Bob Schieffer with the campaign bus in the background. The focus was on Obama’s Friday afternoon’s decision to prevent some one million illegals from being deported, an action which Romney defined as political only to be met head on by the news media follower runaway train carrying lib minions and regime staff.
We pick up the conversation with Schieffer: “Would you repeal this?.”
Romney: “Well, it would be overtaken by events if you will, by virtue of my putting in place a long-term solution, with legislation which creates law that relates to these individuals such that they know what their setting is going to be, not just for the term of a President but on a permanent basis.”
Schieffer: “I won’t keep on about this but just to make sure I understand, would you leave this in place while you worked out a long term solution or would you just repeal it?”
Romney: “We’ll look at that setting as we reach that, but my anticipation is I’d come into office and say we need to get this done, on a long-term basis, not this kind of stop-gap measure. What the President did, he should have worked on this years ago, if he felt seriously about this he should have taken action when he had a Democrat House and Senate, but he didn’t. He saves these sort of things until four and a half months before the general election.”
Schieffer: “Well why do you think he did that?”
Romney: “I think the timing is pretty clear, if he really wanted to make a solution that dealt with these kids or with illegal immigration in America, than this is something he would have taken up in his first 3 and a half years, not in his last few months.”
All else aside note that Romney repeatedly refused to say he would overturn this. That’s the bait. Obama has no record to run on, no bragging rights to banshee over the upcoming months prior to November so he’s buying off what voters he can, throwing dirt at Romney, blaming Bush, and attempting to trip the other side.
What happens if Romney had said overturn! The great firewall drops down in front of Obama’s unemployment, economy, deficits, no growth, ObamaCare, no energy, Fast and Furious… and the spotlight shines on the new national frontpage, ‘ROMNEY ANTI-IMMIGRATION’. Another surprise for all of you republican establishment and liberal Romney supporters.
