"Self Deportation" suggestion from Romney

Is Romney going to flip on that one now as well?

Would Romney have supported Lily Ledbetter?

I guess the answer is no. It is whatever he thinks is in his best political interest.
This guy lost all credibility, just to gain a few points in the polls.

Next Romney will try for a photo op with Dreamers in a too-little-too-late attempt to capture a scintilla of support from Latinos.

Just to go along honestly with my theory that it doesn't make a fart-in-a-gale difference who holds the office, I think I'll vote for the Romster.

Seriously, PN, are you saying that it does not matter at all who wins between Reps. and Dems.? You don't believe that there are differences between Romney and Obama that would change your vote?

Seriously, I think it matters in no significant or meaningful degree.

That is a little depressing. I hope that you are wrong (no offense).

If it mattered the way partisans think it does, wouldn't reality reflect that a great deal more?

We have had extreme liberals through moderates to extreme conservatives as President. It may possibly be that there were times in the past when who in particular held the office made a significant difference, or it may be that is the illusion projected by hindsight. It's easy to suppose that there would have been no New Deal, for example, if someone other than FDR had been in office. Isn't it more likely however that extreme economic urgency and social unrest would have caused Congress to create some kind of sweeping welfare plan regardless of who was President?

Would there have been no Civil Rights movement if Goldwater had taken office in 1964? Somehow I don't think MLK would have retired at that time, and exigencies would have required Goldwater to make similar moves to those Johnson made.

Stuff happens, politicians react, and big events greatly suprass partisan theatrics. Where was partisan bickering when the Patriot Act passed the Senate with only one nay? That's when we desperately needed bickering and opposing points of view and instead the sheep sent the Constitution to the gallows.
