Romney Calls Perry a Mexico-Lover


This is Mitt Romney’s new video attacking Rick Perry for a rare and politically damaging bout of humanity toward the children of illegal immigrants. Note that it begins with the assumption that anything Democrats favor must be bad — a primitive but common assumption in primary politics — and then proceeds to the assumption that anything Mexican President Vicente Fox likes must be bad. Fox is quoted at length praising Perry, and his praise stands on its own as an indictment — anything that a Mexican would like must be wrong.

Also, in unrelated news, President Obama is currently crushing the GOP field among the Latino vote.
