He proudly accepts endorsement of anti-immigrant, but has flip-flopped in past.

NumberUSA still gives Romney the best overall grades on (against) illegal immigration: https://www.numbersusa.com/content/action/2012-presidential-hopefuls-immigration-stances.html


Michele Bachmann had a better record - but she dropped out.

Changing your opinion is not flip flopping. Being pro illegal, then anti illegal, and then back to pro illegal is flipflopping. Many more people are pro life now. Did they flip flop or just changed their mind after considering both sides.

He has never, in this campaign, said anything positive or in favor of "path to citizenship" that does not involve leaving the country until it is your turn to enter.

He did not hire illegals. The company he hired did. Big difference.

Well you have to accept a certain about of wavering on this issue. After all according to the"Romney birthers" he is a Mexican.

I would like to see the papers of the lady that cleans Romney's house... That's right, she doesnt have it. Typical Republican.

All good points. Older people tend to be more conservative anyway, it's normal.

Suspended her campaign, the same as Herman Cain...

That still allows them to get and spend campaign funds...

It's all about the money...
