It was only a couple of months ago that Mitt Romney told a Republican debate audience in Arizona that the state was a model for the nation on immigration. If elected president, he said, he would immediately drop the lawsuits that the Obama administration has filed against Arizona and other states that are trying to do the job Barack Obama isnt doing.
That was then. This is now.

That’s the one area, immigration, where Mitt hard-tacked to the right... of Perry and all the others. That was his plan, as immigration was the #1 issue on peoples minds. If he slimes left now on this key issue, he’s not going to win, because enough conservatives are going to say screw him.
One of them already has. 8^<
In January, Romney had welcomed the endorsement of Kris Kobach, draftsman of the Arizona immigration law, and described Kobach as a member of his “team” that would “take forceful steps to curtail illegal immigration” and support the efforts of states like Arizona. Last week, the Romney campaign described Kobach as merely a “supporter.”
An Etch A Sketch moment, where the candidate recasts his views in hopes of appealing to a wider electorate? This bit of spin looks like it goes a step further, into the terrain of trying to rewrite the candidate’s own history.
Ho, ho, ho! The old "downgrade to 'supporter'" ruse. Yeah, Willard, we believe you -- this time. <snort!>
Will never vote for the Backstabbing Bishop
of Etch-a-Sketch, GOPe, and Kolob.
He is a proven liar, and betrayer.
See what Ann Coulter has to say:
“Romney doing the job the Republican establishment simply won’t do”
No, many of us here in Arizona, as does Ann Coulter, think Romney won’t backtrack on illegal immigration.
There is a hard core group of Conservatives here at F.R. which have made the statement, "I'll never vote for Romney".
Count me among them.
Romney vs. Obama? One of them has to lose, rejoice in that fact, whichever it is.
