Mitt Romney Will Now Explain Why Implementing The Dream Act Hurts The Dream Act

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

MexicanIt is hard to be Mitt Romney trying to decide what he wants people to think he believes about immigration. He has to strike just the right note: not alienating Latino voters while being totally and constantly bug-eyed, Jan Brewer-style racist for the GOP base. The most important part of this three-legged stool, though? Being the opposite of Barack Obama at all times!

“I believe the status of young people who come here through no fault of their own is an important matter to be considered and should be solved on a long-term basis so they know what their future would be in this country,” Romney said.

OK, Mitt Romney is for the Dream Act, fellows! You remember — the super-duper popular part of immigration reform that applies to kids who came here illegally before they were 16, and are good kids who want to either go to college or join the Army. How popular is the Dream Act? Three-fourths of Arizonans support it. So how do you think he will blame Obama for making it happen? Put on your thinking brain. Do you have a guess?

He continued: “I think the actions that the president took today make it more difficult to reach that kind of long term solution because an executive order, of course, is a short-term matter that can be reversed by subsequent presidents.”

So Obama’s executive order on deportation priorities and enforcement will somehow preclude Congress from passing it too? Sure, why not! Do you find this tortured? Of course you do. That logic was waterboarded, put in pink underwear, and had to listen to “Oops! I Did It Again” for seven days straight. Congress would not pass the Dream Act. Obama used his authority to direct executive-branch agencies to implement it anyway, because Congress would not pass it. Obama is a poopyhead for leaving it to be overturned by future administrations, as is the nature of executive orders. Why won’t Barack Obama just be Congress? We know! He is too busy golfing!

So Mitt would deport his own father back to Mexico?

NellCote71 June 18, 2012 at 10:59 am

He would ask him to self-deport.

Dr. Nick Riviera June 18, 2012 at 11:07 am

Well his father was some kind of liberal hippie if you look at his policies.

JustPixelz June 18, 2012 at 11:25 am

Kids! You try to raise 'em right, but sometimes they end up millionaire Republican assholes.

MrFizzy June 18, 2012 at 11:39 am

I am vaguely hoping that Romney gets elected just to see what an unmitigated clusterfuck it will be. Jaded though I am, it still amazes me how stupid half the people in this country really are. And I'm sorry to end two consecutive sentences in prepositions, but if you don't like it, well.

sullivanst June 18, 2012 at 12:42 pm

DO NOT WANT.

We'd all be part of the cluster getting fucked, and not in a good way.

I knew a guy decided in the end he wanted Bush to win reelection because it'd make the revolution come sooner. That didn't work out so well, now, did it?

Puffperney June 18, 2012 at 5:52 pm

I hear you Mr. Fizzy! Although not vaguely hoping for a Romney win, I'm thinking it is very possible, given the electorate. Then, I think we will have to develop a taste for Schadenfreude as the electorate gets what they deserve as Mencken put it: "Good and Hard".

Lionel[redacted]Esq June 18, 2012 at 1:05 pm

Deportation is too good for him.

NYNYNYjr June 18, 2012 at 4:02 pm

Idea for a new grassroots movement: bodies of people born in Mexico should be re-interred in Mexico. Mitt's father will go, symbolically, first.

You're assuming that anyone on the right ever saw that movie. Did not happen.

You see, they called it "clearing brush" but in truth, he was looking for his shot in the rough.

They're counting on it.

MrFizzy June 18, 2012 at 11:37 am

As pointed out by the estimable actor212, W spent all his time fucking around in tumbleweed — that was because he couldn't figure out how to keep score in golf.

JustPixelz June 18, 2012 at 10:58 am

By not proposing or doing anything, Romney and Go-Pee'ers basically support aborting grown children from the womb of the United States.

Can we deport Boehner back to Oompah Loompahland now?

Not enough cocoa beans in the world for a bribe to make them take him back.

So…either President Obama is re-elected, or the next President will be Mitt Romney. Is he saying he'd reverse it?

Puffperney June 18, 2012 at 5:55 pm

Good one. I had that thought too. Regardless of who wins in November the directive should last for four more years – assuming Romney doesn't do away with it if he wins.

Chet Kincaid June 18, 2012 at 11:03 am

Mitt also seems to think that Obama is "playing politics" because he didn't address this enough with Congress in the 2-1/2 years he was trying to save the economy, the financial system and the health system. Yes, by doing anything sensible and/or within his authority right now, Obama is "playing politics."

Why does Romney bother addressing anything he can't take a clear shot at Obama on, instead of muddling around with this kind of bullshit and making himself look vaguely silly? Oops, Mittens, don't read that!!

sullivanst June 18, 2012 at 11:44 am

because he didn't address this enough with Congress

Indeed, because it's totally like he hasn't addressed this before.

BTW, is there anything Romeny can take a clear shot at Obama on without making himself look vaguely silly? Wouldn't that require there being an issue Romney hasn't take all sides on already?

Chet Kincaid June 18, 2012 at 11:48 am

Mitt Omni.

Callyson June 18, 2012 at 12:06 pm

Not to mention that when W tried to do one relatively unshitty thing and make some mild reforms on immigration, the wingnuts in his party were not having it: does Mittens really think anyone believes Obama would have better luck? Christ, does he really think we are that stupid?

…yeah, I know, I know…

Fred_Wertham_Jr June 18, 2012 at 12:34 pm

Wasn't there an oil spill somewhere? Maybe I have it mixed up with that hurricane in Disneyworld. That was probably a major distraction.

Dr. Nick Riviera June 18, 2012 at 11:06 am

Romney can't tell the truth about his policies because it will cause his CPU to combust

"I am lying, but if everything I say is a lie, then I am telling the truth, but I cannot tell the truth because everything I say is a lie, but I lie… I tell the truth but I cannot for I lie… illogical! Illogical! Please explain!"

Ryy June 18, 2012 at 11:06 am

Romney doesn't just flip-flop, he "pre-flips". Here he is telling us on the TeeVee "I am for this but against it also."

I think Obama's response of "I did it this way because fuck congress" will also resonate with the American voters.

Native_of_SL_UT June 18, 2012 at 11:18 am

It amazes me that he takes this stand that once he's in the White House, everybody in congress will start to play nice and immigration reform will finally be settled, like they haven't been fighting over this for the last fucking 30 years with no hope of consensus.

Dr. Nick Riviera June 18, 2012 at 11:23 am

Well, they will play nicer. Dems do not obstruct like Republicans do. They just don't. Too many of them are goody two shoes weak willed people who can't bear to get in the mud and rassle

SorosBot June 18, 2012 at 11:25 am

But that's how they do it in the business world! Which is yet another reason corporate executives make horrible presidents.

anniegetyerfun June 18, 2012 at 11:25 am

Given what craven assholes Congressional Democrats are, they will probably pass absolutely every bill that Mitt's advisors can come up with.

sullivanst June 18, 2012 at 12:43 pm

Like how Nancy Pelosi passed Bush's Social Security privatization plan? Oh, wait…

anniegetyerfun June 18, 2012 at 12:48 pm

That was one instance in which they didn't cave, but the idea also had no populat support. Bush started traveling around the country to promote it, and senior citizens were angrily pronouncing it a bad idea. But almost anything else Bush asked for, the Dems happily provided.

BarackMyWorld June 18, 2012 at 11:10 am

How long till Mitt implements his "That was my position all along" subroutine?

Dr. Nick Riviera June 18, 2012 at 11:12 am

Negative 3 days. Politico was already floating a turd on Friday that Obama only acted because the GOP was totally going to do this very same thing with Rubio's plan.

BarackMyWorld June 18, 2012 at 11:15 am

Did anyone believe them?

Who am I kidding? Politico = beltway gospel.

sullivanst June 18, 2012 at 11:48 am

The GOP was totally going to use their President to issue an Executive Order?

How long did Politico spend polishing that turd?

Native_of_SL_UT June 18, 2012 at 11:19 am

Just as soon as the "What was my position all along" subroutine completes it run.
So, never.

Poor Obama- he couldn't do this & the gay marriage thing just before the election or he'd be accused of being a politician, so by Nov. his fickle base will have forgotten everything but their grievances about what he didn't do.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I didn't think this was an executive order, but rather an announcement that Napolitano's office was changing their priorities regarding detainment/deportation.

actor212 June 18, 2012 at 11:16 am

So, inferring from Romney's statement, Obama is pandering to the Latino vote by implementing a non-binding executive order which at heart is the policy that Romney himself would pursue, except he opposes it, which is exactly the opposite of what he's said in the past, which in turn was the opposite of what else he's said in the past, so he thinks it should be law but won't commit to passing it because that would be wrong?

Native_of_SL_UT June 18, 2012 at 11:26 am

Thank you for clearing that up and ending my confusion.

This is only a problem if we have subsequent Presidents, I assume we will just keep electing President Obama over and over. Why should we be slaves to that silly 2 term rule.

Here's an idea the GOP can endorse: let the Messicans in, but only the ones that rich Americans are willing to buy. You know, they could do planting, harvesting, gardening, and some of the better looking ones could work inside cooking, cleaning, and fucking the master. If they were really good, maybe the master would give them papers when he dies. It's a plan that could really unite the factions of the GOP, although maybe a little too liberal for some!

sullivanst June 18, 2012 at 11:36 am

What makes Romney think that we'll buy from him the exact same bullshit argument we decried when Obama advanced it as a reason to continue pissing on teh gh3ys by not issuing an XO requiring Federal contractors not to fire people for rubbing their genitals against similar genitals in their own fucking bedrooms?

Fortunately the Catholic Bishops are working assiduously to make sure the ignorant among their immigrant flock support one of their own, a Bishop: even if he is a godless non-christian one. He is at least white for Crissakes.

Tundra Grifter June 18, 2012 at 11:40 am

In a semi-serious Monday morning mood, here is my current favorite (r)Money quote:

2007: His first White House bid under way, (r)Money "longed in many respects to actually be in Vietnam."

"I was supportive of my country," Romney said. "I longed in many respects to actually be in Vietnam and be representing our country there, and in some ways it was frustrating not to feel like I was there as part of the troops that were fighting in Vietnam."

Do ya think he didn't feel like he was there because he wasn't there? He longed to go, and was frustrated that he didn't go. But he still didn't go.

And back then, if he'd joined the Army or the Marines or even the fucking Coast Guard I guarandamntee you he would have gone.

Al Gore went. But (r)Money just longed for it – while he felt like he wasn't there.

Chet Kincaid June 18, 2012 at 11:54 am

CK:

Leaving aside the whole Florida election debacle and the US Supreme Court disaster, I think in time history will tell that the 2000 election was one of the worst in our history.

Al Gore is just so far above George Bush as a leader and a person. Bush was the better candidate. There is no doubt in my mind Gore would have been a far better President.

Millennial Malaise June 18, 2012 at 1:35 pm

Even John "Foppish Elite Caricature" Kerry went to Vietnam. And I didn't even know until recently that Jimmy Carter was a navy officer. I really can't stand these chickhawks but there is nothing Republicans like more than to disparage real heros (ie: MAX CLELAND LIBEL!!).

Tundra Grifter June 18, 2012 at 3:08 pm

John Kerry was a genuine hero. Not only did he fight in Viet Nam. He came home and tried to right the wrongs he saw done there. He stood up for his principles – which, after all, are the best American values.

fuflans June 18, 2012 at 2:54 pm

i longed in many respects to actually be in vietnam

but not in those respects where you actually, you know, did something about it.

tool.

Tundra Grifter June 18, 2012 at 3:10 pm

fuflans:

Exactly! It's not even "I woulda gone; I just didn't."

Apparently his frustration at not feeling like he was there was not great enough to actually go there.

Ever been to SLC?

Lots and lots of tall blonde Blondes.

Amazing how many Scandanavians fell for that Mormon crap…

Speaking of three-legged stools, how's Dick Cheney doing these days?

You could have omitted "three-legged," you know.

Oh, man, you KNOW that's his colostomy bag!

When Romney says it can be overturned by future presidents, does he mean himself? Isn't that all the more reason to stick with the guy who put it in place?

an executive order, of course, is a short-term matter that can be reversed by subsequent presidents

Like all those controversial Bush-era executive orders Obama reversed! Oh, wait…Since you yourself, Mittens, are seeking to be the "subsequent president," is this your roundabout way of saying you'd reverse it on "day one?"

Love that photo. I gotta get me an outfit with some bandoliers.

i am in no way confident that citizens united or an adelson intervention won't throw this election, but bamz does seem to have the knack of boxing the mittbot into an uncomfortable corner.

I don't know why people whine about him caving. He does classic ju-jitsu manoeuvres. Use your opponent's agressive attacks to trip them into a corner from which they cannot escape. He's done it so often, no wonder the Repigs won't throw their Numba Won candidates into the lineup against him. Rope-A-Dope. He's the expert.

I can't wait for the debates.

Ann has suggested leaving platters of fried chicken and watermelon just a bit off-camera.

MittBorg June 18, 2012 at 9:58 pm

He will wipe the floor with Mittens. I think I've figured out why Republicons like to yell at the man. It's because they ain't got nothing. They can't get in a reasoned debate with him because he can tie them in knots and spin them in circles. Yelling. It's all they got.

"…because an executive order, of course, is a short-term matter that can be reversed by subsequent presidents.”

Hey, Mitt, quit telegraphing your moves. Save that kind of stuff for AFTER the election.

Give the guy some slack, it must be really difficult to express one's core beliefs when none exist.

BrooklynMature June 19, 2012 at 1:52 pm

Mitt is a slut! He is the truest example of the word — he has sold his body to the right wing of the Republican party, repudiating everything he believed in as recently as five years ago, to get their support for the Presidency.
