"In a video address, Obama got applause when he talked about the temporary measure for young immigrants. He said he pursued it because Republicans blocked legislation giving a pathway to citizenship to the young immigrants". No obama did it for the latino vote. barry will do anything for a vote. especially if he can use other's money to do so.

Has Mr. Alum seen the video of Mitt declaring (to an all non-latino audience) that he would have vetoed the Dream Act opening a path to non-legal immigrants through service to the nation? Is he now in FAVOR of this, or are Latinos next in line to be simply told to "trust me"? And it's "PRESIDENT Barry".

Romney's all over the map on this issue. He sounded good in the GOP debates, but that was a different audience. Now he must appeal to the moderates. And, like most, he will say what it takes to please people.
Immigration is a litmus test for me, and frankly I'm disappointed by politicians and ministers.
Obama has ignored the law of the land, so he's done. As for Romney, I'll probably vote for him. But I won't stuff envelopes or walk my precinct for him.

@Ute alumni: the Republicans did obstruct Obama on this matter. In December, 2010, the House voted for the Dream Act by 18 votes. The Senate had 56 voted. Normally, a bill would pass with those numbers, but the Republicans manipulated procedures of the Senate to force 60 voted to even bring the bill to the floor for a debate. The party of NO said No, and a bill that had a majority votes in both the House and the Senate.

I think you are deflecting. Mitt will say anything to anybody to get elected. Just look at his major flip flops from when he ran as a liberal Senator for Massachusetts, when he ran as a moderate Governor for the same state, and how he is running as a far right candidate for the presidency. His views on major issues are now the complete opposite of what they once were. No, it is not a personal evolution. It is blatant pandering.

Mitt has already lost this election.

Obama 2012.
