Unclean! Unclean! Romney knew immediately that this was a set up photo op by the open border treason lobby to try to get something on Romney that the obamanation could use against Romney. A photo of Romney shaking hands with a dreamie would certainly have been spun by the obamanation slime machine.

well there goes his campaign... everyone here was once an immigrant whether it was your mom your great great great grandfather or you. we should be supporting this instead of wasting all this talent.It is more than obvious that Romney will not win in the 2012 elections because he just doesnt have the latino vote. It was probably the stupidest move he could have done. He secured his own campaign failure. I laugh at ignorant politicians such as himself.

And I on the other hand think you're full of b.s. Not everyone was an immigrant and who gives a flip about the Hispanic votes? They're a minority with the attitude that they're not!

You freaking Idiot ! You need to educate yourself on what an Immigrant is ! So here I'll tell you so you can understand it in plain English !#1 An Immigrant is a person who comes to America by Legal Means that means they come here and do things by the book ! An Illegal is just that all those that come here by Illegal means like crossing the Border or by over staying their visa which makes them undocumented aliens and not Immigrants ! So I hope that will sink into your head that there is a difference in the two !

The racism, xenophobia, hate-mongering and bigotry demonstrated by Newtie and Willard will serve them well with the nativists and bigots.

Fortunately, the country is a lot saner, has a higher sense of fairness and humanity, and enlightened self-interest than the older & less educated.

According to Gallup, 54% of Americans support the DREAM act. YOUNGER and MORE EDUCATED Americans the most likely to say they would vote for such legislation, and OLDER and LESS EDUCATED (typical red-neck) Americans least likely to do so.

You'd better go check a dictionary before calling someone else a "freaking Idiot."

Newt Gingrich actually takes a pretty soft stance on illegal immigration...a softer one than what is necessary, anyhow. Since you are referring to Mitt Romney as 'Willard'(Will Romney?), my guess is that you learned just enough English to write this ridiculous post.

All that you have to do to understand that Ron Paul is NOT cut from the same cloth as all of these other candidates (and our current president) are is to INVESTIGATE HIS RECORD. That's not very hard to do when we're talking about a 12-term US Congressman. If you are afraid that the effort might negate some of the entitlement-benefits that you are currently receiving, I'll do most of the work for you:

Ron Paul's Congressional Voting Record -

Ron Paul on Bill Maher during the '08 campaign-

(Pay attention to the comment Maher makes about Romney at the very end of the clip...and keep in mind that this was back in '08)

This is a compilation from the current campaign-

Last but not least, watch this ad in its entirety...the footage is all legitimate, no special effects were used to make him look younger...HE'S BEEN TRYING TO TELL US FOR A WHILE. Go ahead. Watch it. If this doesn't change your mind, then there's probably something wrong with YOU-

And you must be smart enough to know that the law just doesn't allow you to illegally enter a country no matter what your reasons are ! Our Immigration policies allow for legal Immigration as do most Countries but not for those that Illegal invade and enter the Country ! You must be able to read between the lines that is why we have Laws that govern such matters !

I see you forgot the words "legally" as well as "illegally" again! I have a swell idea, you "migrate to Mexico" illegally and see how far you get! I much prefer Black's Law Dictionary and the words "Illegal" "Alien" "Migrants."

The feds refuse to do their Constitutional job of securing and protecting the borders.

The feds were ONLY granted 18 powers and they refuse to do them according to the Constitution.

Time to restrict the feds to the Constitution and stop the Illegal alien invasion.

BTW-Romney's grandfater fled the US with his 4 WIVES and Mitts dad WAS BORN in MEXICO which makes Mitts dad a MEXICAN by birth. Mitts father is NOT a NATURAL BORN citizen.

Which means Mitt is NOT eligible to be the president of the United States according to the Constitution.

There is NO LINE to read through:
"You need to educate yourself on what an Immigrant is !"
Never said the law does....no I don't.
BTW: You don't use a space before an exclamation point any more than you use one before a period.

I didn't forget a damn thing. I simply looked up the word "waterdogg" used. I doubt either of the dictionaries referenced 'forgot' the distition....they just defined the word.

When you change the word that was used, you usually also get different definitions.

Just paying Willard Mitt Romeny the respect he deserves. At least President Barack Hussein Obama is proud of his first name....he doesn't lie about his like Mitten did.

"I'm Mitt Romney and yes, Wolf, that's also my first name," he said to dead silence from the audience.

BTW: I've been following Paul since his first run in '74 & then successful one in '76. I was living in the congressional district just north of his. He was a loonie Ayn Rand disciple back then and still is.

If one's mother or other ancestors were immigrants, one can't be an immigrant here. Illegal aliens are not immigrants. They don't hold immigration status at all. They hold only criminal status. Duh.

To which 'talent' do you refer? The 'talent' most illegals have of sponging off of US taxpayers? LOL! They receive instructions on how to do that from enemy foreign nations and traitors within the USA. They have no talent. Had they 'talent' they would have stayed in their own countries and earned a decent living.

What ridiculous, absurd propaganda you spew. The issue is national sovereignty, moron, not fear of people from other countries. The USA is and always has been the most open, welcoming country in the world to immigrants from different countries. Legal immigrants.

Illegal aliens have no higher sense of fairness and humanity, and have ONLY self-interest. More educated American citizens see this and know this to be true. Older Americans have an appreciation for keeping their Constitution and sovereign country. Younger Americans have been propagandized to death by traitorous liberals salted among our teachers and professors in schools and colleges, which was a deliberate plan all along.

Take the word of the conspirators - those you obviously support:

“The sovereignty fetish is still so strong in the public mind, that there would appear to be little chance of winning popular assent to American membership in anything approaching a super-state organization. Much will depend on the kind of approach which is used in further popular education.”
- 1944 Council on Foreign Relations Report

“Let us face reality. The framers (of the Constitution) have simply been too shrewd for us. They have outwitted us. They designed separate institutions that cannot be unified by mechanical linkages, frail bridges,(or) tinkering. If we are to turn the founders upside down… we must directly confront the Constitutional structure they erected.”
- James MacGregor Burns, Council on Foreign Relations member, 1984

“Once the ruling members of the CFR shadow government have decided that the U.S. Government should adopt a particular policy, the very substantial research facilities of (the) CFR are put to work to develop arguments, intellectual and emotional, to support the new policy, and to confound and discredit, intellectually and politically, any opposition.”
- Admiral Chester Ward, former CFR member and Judge Advocate General of the U.S. Navy

Shaking the hand of an illegal would be the same as shaking the hand of a bank robber IMO.
