According to a recent item in the Washington Post's Election 2012 Blog, recalled state Senate President Russell Pearce has endorsed Mitt Romney in the Republican presidential primary, more than a month after Romney won Sand Land's GOP contest.
As a result, Romney immediately called a press conference and conceded the general election to President Obama.
Okay, Romney didn't concede the general. Why, he hasn't even whupped Rick Santorum yet.
But he might as well concede that he'll lose the national Latino vote by a massive margin, with a neo-Nazi-hugging pol like Pearce declaring that Romney's immigration policy "is identical to mine."
Indeed, though I've exposed Pearce time and time again as a serial liar with no affinity for the truth, in this case, I must agree with him when he calls Romney's position on immigration a duplicate of his.
That is 100 percent true, and it just happens to be a point I made in a recent feature on the GOP hopeful: "Bad Mormon: Mitt Romney's Anti-Immigrant Stance Doesn't Jibe with LDS Teachings."
Romney's immigration adviser is Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, the architect of Pearce's breathing-while-brown legislation Senate Bill 1070, which has in its preamble, this sentence:
"The legislature declares that the intent of this act is to make attrition through enforcement the public policy of all state and local government agencies in Arizona."And "attrition through enforcement" is identical to Romney's suggestion that if America makes life hard on the 12 million undocumented in our midst (as if life wasn't hard for them already), they will "self-deport."
