World Shifts on Axis: Republican congressman calls for details from Romney

One advantage of living life as Willard Romney does--an empty tailored suit with no principles, beliefs, or values that he will not repudiate at the drop of a hat or electoral race and multiple accounts in foreign tax havens --lies in never having to debate issues.

One can wrestle IN Jello but cannot hold on to it to wrestle it.  So we see Mssr. Romney dancing on the head of an immigration pin, trying to placate tea party yahoos but also offering banal words to actual immigrants to cajole them into voting his way, words but no details.

Kind of like commercials Mitt runs now in FL vowing to replace Obama care on day 1 and replace with patient centered reform.

First, Mittens, actual humans out here in real America lack health insurance and funds to actually BECOME patients.

Second, the Congress passed the Affordable Care Act, and a president cannot unilaterally abolish it as though a king with royal perogative.

Shoot, actually have to praise a Republican in FL.

[A prominent Hispanic Republican and Miami power broker accused Mitt Romney of lacking leadership and compassion in his approach to immigration in an interview with BuzzFeed this week, and warned that elements of the Miami party machinery won't engage on election day without a more expansive Romney plan on immigration.

Rep. David Rivera, who represents the southwestern tip of the Sunshine State, is the only Latino Republican in the House who's not on Romney's Hispanic Steering Committee, kept at arm's length by the presidential candidate because of a set of investigations into his personal finances. He recently introduced legislation that would give amnesty to some immigrants who came to to the country as children. And he said he has yet to see a serious, satisfying proposal from Romney on the issue.

"I think Hispanic voters expect more details as to what that 'permanent solution' might be that he keeps talking about," Rivera said, referring to Romney's pledge to fix the immigration system while in office.]
