Romney will keep
Obama's immigration policy

CBS News, by Leigh Ann Caldwell

Original Article

Posted By:ClangClang, 10/3/2012 12:09:16 AM

Mitt Romney softened his stance on one of President Obama's immigration directives allowing certain undocumented immigrant youth to stay in the U.S. legally. In an interview with The Denver Post Monday, Romney said he would not reverse an executive order issued by President Obama that would allow children of illegal immigrants to obtain a visa, permitting them to live and work in the U.S. legally for two years, if they meet certain criteria. "The people who have received the special visa that the president has put in place, which is a two-year visa, should expect that the visa

Comments:
Romney just lost my vote for good. And most likely hundreds of thousands of others who consider out-of-control immigration to be the defining issue of our age.

At this stage of a campaign, at the very least a candidate should know who his supporters are. The cheap labor lobby may donate lots of cash, but they don't post lots of votes. Romney doesn't seem to have a clue who his voting base is.

I wish the open borders radicals luck with four more years of Obama. They'll need it.

Sorry that something from CBS could sway you so easily OP, a real Romney supporter would at least wait for a credible explanation.

I guess OP would much rather have another 4 years (which could turn into a lifetime position) of dictator Obama instead. Yeah, that makes a lot of sense.

This is exactly why Obama did this move... to try to paint Romney into a no-win corner. Seems like OP doesn't appreciate the bind this has put Romney in. I don't like it either, but letting Obama win is not a great way to stop the madness.

I'd say someone's clangers are defective. I wouldn't jump the gun on this considering the source. Plus at this point anyone claiming to be conservative and not voting for Romney is akin to a traitor, in my view.

So some kids get to keep their visas for a couple years. So what? This is small potatoes in the whole immigration mess. Sure, it was pure political pandering by Obama, and probably illegal to boot. And I was angry when he did it. But Romney's right. Just fix the whole thing and take care of this in the process. Get to it when we get to it. Solve the big problems rather than run around playing whack-a-mole with details.

It's less of a logistical headache to let them play out. He's not renewing them. OP if not for this you'd find some other reason to not vote for Romney. I've known your type since I was a kid.

Actually, Romney should have only one executive order during his presidency should he manage to win... And at is an EO that blanket overturns all of zippy's EOs.

Nothing more or less. And yes, I am unwilling to compromise.

The faster Obama destroys the country the better. A stacked Supreme court, completely open borders, healthcare nationalization, confiscatory taxation and institutionalized affirmative action where your children will be shut out of any real chance of a prosperous future.

I say if the GOP doesn't understand who its constituents are, then let the radicals who control the party have at it and when the smoke clears, we will, at the very least, never go down this path again.

I'm not going to contribute to the slow death of a Republic that my ancestors died fighting for. After 19 illegal aliens murdered thousands of our people, you would thing we'd wake up. And after the installation of a police state because of Muslim immigration, you'd think we'd wake up. And after an economic meltdown largely brought on by affirmative action lending to immigrants and their children, you'd think we'd wake up.

So I say, no one can sleep for that long, so it must be you really want Obama. Well now you've got him.

#8 I doubt it will collapse very fast under any conditions. The libs are boiling this frog slowly. The USSR took 70 years to finally collapse.

Personally, I am going to hold out hope for Romney and then possibly Ryan after that. If Obama wins, my life is too short to fight it any more. I have been saving/preparing for the possible disappointment and I will start to look for other countries to live in. The trajectory we're on is not a good one.

Yes, let's stick to perfection as being the bar for your vote -- you'll end up like the GOP in California, watching from the sidelines as things come crashing down and Democrats are reelected over and over again.

Jesus Christ is not running for President, and I think it's safe to say a Romney presidency would be much, much better for the country than an Obama presidency.

Rome wasn't built, destroyed, or rebuilt in a day (or a term).

Not voting for Romney = another vote for Obama. Think about that.

With all due respect CC, I want immigration enforcement as well, but this [reported] MR position is not in accord w/ his other statements on the subject.

Therefore, I'm inclined to wait and review the whole on this topic.

There is also a difference, imho, between a President who must be guided and kept honest by the will of the People, and a [self-styled] substance-abusing... kleptocrat ...who listens to no one and respects no law.

I cut the OP some slack. Someone being fed up with the entire political process is understandable. I'm voting for Romney while not being a "true Romney supporter" either. I'm a Conservative and Romney is more conservative than Obama. By his campaign conduct alone, including quotes that appear in the article, Romney appears to be slightly to the left of GW, whom I like but never considered even being close to Reagan's conservative ideological bent. Still, I hope he wins and has a largely conservative congress that can spend its time undoing Obama era legislation rather than layering on new.

You don't know what you're wishing for OP. Yes, illegal immigration is a major threat, but we've got a whole row of threats lined up to deal with.

It's nice to claim ideological perfection, but not voting for Romney will certainly help Obama. So do you want to risk your country's fiscal collapse, while you complain about something a MSM purveyor is pushing and we don't even know to be true?

A fiscal collapse won't be pretty. I hope you've got your wheelbarrow ready to carry your money around in, and have ample supplies, and a way to protect them when the hordes come after them.

Unless you're really on Obama's side, and trying to demoralize the rest of us.

As a legal immigrant and now an American citizen I am appalled by any slackness on illegal immigration. However, there is no way I would vote against Romney in this election, nor would I sit at home, not voting for either candidate.

I'm a little suspicious of a new poster who tries to discourage Ldotters from voting for the conservative candidate.

It's not going to work.

I've been posting here since '98. Brought here by lying POS Clinton and the destruction he wrought, including open borders and the national climate we now call political correctness.

F purity. There's no such thing. There is always a mix of good and bad policy. But willful intent to destroy a people, we the people that built this country, that is an entirely different matter. Destruction, chaos and poverty. That's precisely what the open borders radicals of the GOP have brought to our country and I say F-em.

No one in the GOP leadership wants to acknowledge what these scam artists have done. Fair enough, the GOP has been co-opted and it's their ball-game now.

But I say I will not contribute to this madness and have had enough.

Four more years should be just enough to get the party started.

Don' sweat this. Wrong battle at this time. If I were Mitt, I would say more and more and more and more to get the latino vote. I am not suggesting lying, but once in office, he can work on real immigration reform. And the idea we are going to round up 25 million plus people and deport them is stupid. They need to be made US citizens for the right party. Latinos are conservative by nature like African Americans used to be in some respect. See how the dems are courting latino votes with lies and abandoning blacks. The other side is playing super dirty. No time for macainisms. Support Mitt. I think he is smarter than he looks.

Grrrrr. Calm down, people.
And if you can't calm down, then just shut up.
Just because you get all cranked up that CBS News (a true paragon of truthful reporting!) would say that this is Romney's position, why would you believe it unless you saw Romney say it himself and in the proper context?
Why would you immediately conclude "Romney lost my vote for good" and encourage other people to do the same? That is totally irresponsible.
Clearly See-BS is living up to their name, and you are falling for it.

Slightly off topic but, re 'I doubt it will collapse very fast... The USSR took 70 years to finally collapse.'

We started wading into this pool nearly 80 years ago with the Social Security Act (1935). If you count the toe-dipping in the early 1900's, I'd say we're about to go under.

Romney could have deflected this question w/a 'we'll see' answer but chose to give an answer that angered his core base. Amazing how this aw shucks doofus instinctively grasps defeat from the jaws of victory. Of course his hear no evil waterboys are just jake w/responses like this. Principled conservatives warned in vain about this guy from day one, as a loser w/o any core, who would surround himself w/like minded wool heads from the calcified DC progressive R establishment; but we were told to buzz off as he was a shoo in. Really? So be it.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s
