SCHIEFFER: “[W]ould you repeal [Obama's immigration] order if you became president?” …
ROMNEY: “This is something Congress has been working on, and I thought we were about to see some proposals brought forward by Senator Marco Rubio and by Democrat senators, but the President jumped in and said I’m going to take this action … [H]e was president for the last three and a half years and did nothing on immigration. Two years he had a Democrat House and Senate, did nothing of a permanent or long-term basis. What I would do, is I’d make sure that by coming into office, I would work with Congress to put in place a long-term solution for the children of those that have come here illegally.” …
Not only is that [a] false comment: "Two years he had a Democrat House and Senate, did nothing of a permanent or long-term basis." It is the New-GOP False Talking Point.
FACT: The fact is Republicans in the Senate Filibustered the DREAM Act twice in 2010. So, Mitt is lying when he falsely claims President Obama "did nothing of a permanent or long-term basis."
September 21, 2010: Senate Republicans Filibuster DREAM Act
December 18 2010: Senate Republicans Filibuster DREAM Act
May 2011: Harry Reid re-introduces DREAM Act in the Senate but Republican's vowed to withhold their votes.
Factually speaking, Democrats have introduced the DREAM Act three times since President Obama took office and the GOP have obstructed and filibustered the DREAM Act three times since President Obama took office. Factually speaking, it is Republicans who have done nothing except Filibuster immigration since President Obama took office.
Well said! Read the entire item, and be reminded why Willard Mitt Romney can only be relied on to do two things in this world.
1. Line his own pockets
2. Lie through his teeth.
