Romney Cutting it Up With the Hispanics

I’m don’t know about you, but between this photo and that headline, I get a pretty weird vibe.

…And yeah, let’s hold the jokes on “self-deportation.”

    Hmmm, that thing looks a lot like Newt.

    The chick with the thumbs up is what catches my eye.

    Whose hand is holding that plate to Romney’s left? It makes Romney look like he has an extra hand. Weird.

    Put a fork in the GOP, they are done.

    That doesn’t look like  a thumbs up move. 
    It looks more like she is waving at someone, “come here, have a slice.”

    This won’t help Mitt among Latino voters.  He’s a strong backer of present immigration policy which is vehemently anti-Latino.  Does the Romney campaign think there are significant numbers of Latinos on the fence about their candidate?  It’s hard to see why Romney supporters think cutting up a pig will move Latinos into the plus column. Yes, it’s folksy, but it won’t change minds.

    When asked about immigration policy, Romney parrots the standard Republican line about America being a nation of laws.  But that’s beside the point, and Latino voters know it.  A Romney administration will come down harder on so-called “illegal” immigration.
