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.

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has said that ´a trained ape´ could do a better job managing American interests in Afghanistan than President Obama. The retired Republican made the insult while doing a phone-in interview for Greta Van Susteren´s Fox News show on Tuesday. He argued that the President made a serious error by failing to negotiate a status forces agreement with Afghan President Hamid Karzai. Gawker points out that such an agreement would effectively commit the United States to having a certain number of troops in the country for a number of years beyond the already-agreed-upon plan which

Three Secret Service agents responsible for protecting President Obama in Amsterdam this week were sent home and put on administrative leave Sunday after going out for a night of drinking, according to three people familiar with the incident. One of them was found drunk and passed out in a hotel hallway, the people said. The hotel staff alerted the U.S. Embassy in the Netherlands after finding the unconscious agent Sunday morning, a day before Obama arrived in the country, according to two of the people.

A pair of potentially catastrophic cases will be argued before the Supreme Court on Tuesday. These cases are brought by privately held, for-profit corporations that are arguing their religious convictions should preclude them from offering employees the health insurance required by law. Specifically, these private employers don’t want to allow their employees’ insurance to cover some forms of birth control because, contrary to medicaland scientific evidence, they believe some birth control causes abortions. Corporations are not people. Corporations cannot have religious views. If religious rights are extended to corporations, it puts us on a slippery slope where any private company

Okay, THAT was certainly embarrassing. At the end of a joint news conference with Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte in the Netherlands on Tuesday, the applause for Barack Obama came from a grand total of one guy. One. After thanking the crowd twice for suffering through his boring, standard worn-out spiel, Obama looked around the room, expecting the usual fanfare and applause he receives from his loyal followers back home. It never came. Instead, the Leader of the Free World was met with one slow, awkward clap. Question: was MSNBC’s Chris Matthews in the house?

As the U.S. Supreme Court weighed the constitutionality of a contraception coverage mandate Tuesday morning, a federal appeals court heard a separate legal challenge that could have much more sweeping implications for the future of President Obama´s health care law. And if the oral arguments before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit are any indication, it’s time for the White House to start sweating over a lawsuit that up until now has flown relatively below the radar. At issue in the case are the subsidies that the federal government provides for individuals purchasing insurance through Obamacare. Though the text

On Wednesday, Obama administration officials announced a two week extension in the deadline to enroll in the Affordable Care Act or face a penalty defined as a tax. Asked about this “delay” in the implementation of the ACA on Wednesday, Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) said that there has been no delay. He added that some of the users who experienced problems with the website early on need more time, partially because “people are not educated about how to use the internet.” “There’s no hiccup or delay,” Reid insisted. “We had hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up and

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) said the fault of struggling to sign up on the Obamacare exchanges didn’t lie with the faulty website, but with the people who weren’t “educated on how to use the Internet.” Explaining the reasoning behind the latest Obamacare delay, Reid said too many people just didn’t know to use their computer properly and needed more time. Apparently, it had nothing to do with the well-documented failings of the website that have embarrassed the White House for months. “We have hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up who didn’t get through,” he said.
