Here's how (link):
If [11 million illegal aliens] had been on the voting rolls in 2012 and voted along the same lines as other Hispanic voters did last fall, President Barack Obama’s relatively narrow victory last fall would have been considerably wider, a POLITICO analysis showed.
Mitt Romney conducted a conference call with his backers today, and showed that he's as clueless after his loss as he was before.
From this (note: not The Onion):
[Romney said] the president had followed the "old playbook" of using targeted initiatives to woo specific interest groups - "especially the African-American community, the Hispanic community and young people."
The audio below has Mitt Romney telling a group of businessmen (in so many words) that they should scare their employees into voting for him.
It was recorded at a June 6, 2012 National Federation for Independent Business townhall. On the audio, Romney says:
Time for another edition of Billionaires Know Best.
This edition features an ad that Thomas Peterffy of Interactive Brokers (net worth over $4 billion) will spend $5 to $10 million running in swing states. In the ad (video below), the Hungarian-born Peterffy complains about, among other things, the non-existent threat of socialism.
First the transcript of the ad, followed by a discussion of why it's wrong:
Speaking on last night's Sean Hannity show, Mitt Romney attempted to walk back his earlier anti-American comments where he turned his back on half of America.
Now, Romney says (video below):
Mitt Romney says he won't revoke visas for those in Obama's amnesty. Instead, he'll push his own "full immigration reform plan" - 10/02/12
Mitt Romney recently spoke to the Denver Post editorial board and said this (link):
"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 would continue to be valid. I'm not going to take something that they've purchased," Romney said. "Before those visas have expired we will have the full immigration reform plan that I've proposed."
When it comes to immigration, there are two basic sides: those who want more of it and those who want the same or less. The great majority of Americans are in the second camp: they want to keep immigration levels the same or reduce them and they oppose illegal immigration.

As it turns out, the "full" video of Mitt Romney's remarks where he turned his back on half the U.S. and spouted an anti-American libertarian talking point is actually missing one to two minutes .
Here are a few questions for Mitt Romney or his supporters about Romney's anti-American claim that half the U.S. are welfare queens.
Anti-American Mitt Romney smears half the U.S. as welfare queens at millionaire's meeting - 09/17/12
[SEE IMPORTANT UPDATE BELOW]
The video below  shows Mitt Romney speaking at a meeting of potential donors and turning his back on half the U.S. His comments are truly anti-American: he's smearing half the U.S. as welfare queens and moochers.
Here's a transcript of the video:
Allow me to channel the greatest thinkers of the GOP (e.g., peekURL.com/zHdnAfd ), the Romney campaign, and the conservative establishment and wonder what's going on?
Why isn't the GOP putting this one away?
Mel Martinez: Romney won't support attrition as president ("self deport", Jeb Bush, Kobach) - 08/28/12
The video below (cached) shows Mel Martinez - a member of Mitt Romney's Hispanic Steering Committee - commenting on Romney's immigration position if he becomes president.
Asked if Romney will stay with his last-known position in support of attrition - aka "self-deport" - Martinez says:
One of the major problems the GOP has is people who can't figure out how to do things the right way. In some cases I wouldn't care, but in many cases the dumb things the GOP does have an impact on the U.S. as a whole.
The Mitt Romney campaign will allegedly launch a personal attacks effort against Barack Obama. This is yet another indication that he and his campaign are in well over their heads: their effort will have limited effectiveness and is the opposite of what the country (and the GOP) needs.
Claim: Mitt Romney said he won't flip flop on immigration at millionaires' meeting (Murdoch, Blankfein, Home Depot, Univision, Giuliani) - 07/02/12
This is all just hearsay, but it would be interesting if it turns out to be true :
Mitt Romney last week told a private group of potential supporters and business and media elites, including Rupert Murdoch, that he was treading carefully around the issue of immigration to avoid looking like a "flip-flopper."
Nate Cohn of The New Republic offers "Will Obama’s New Immigration Policy Help in November?" , a response to Obama in effect passing the DREAM Act by executive order:
Mitt Romney "agrees" with Marco Rubio in some way on anti-American DREAM Act; just how dumb or corrupt is Romney? - 06/15/12
Is Mitt Romney dumb, corrupt, or some combination of the two? Whatever it is, Romney is dumb and/or corrupt enough to come close to caving on the anti-American DREAM Act.
If Romney were smart and not corrupt, he'd oppose anti-American bills like the DREAM Act; see the link for how that bill would harm Americans, something you won't hear from the establishment media.
Earlier today, the Washington Post published allegations that Mitt Romney was a bully back in prep school (link). I didn't read the story, but that's not what this post is about.
