Mitt Romney has to appeal to the Republican base but doing so will make him seem unlikeable to the rest of America, who have not been desensitized by a lifetime of killing animals for fun.
Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney was asked on a Boston radio show whether President Obama’s relative Onyango Obama, who is in the United States illegally, should get deported.
“The answer is yes,” Romney replied, after asking who “Uncle Omar” was during the Wednesday interview.
“Well, if the laws of the United States say he should be deported, and I presume they do, then of course we should follow those laws,” Romney said. “And the answer is yes.”
I actually understand Mitt Romney on this one. Obama's uncle shouldn't be given special treatment. He was arrested driving drunk back in August and anyone else in his position would have been deported long ago. But stating you'd deport the President's uncle a few days before Christmas is kind of like telling Tiny Tim he should get a job.
Wait, never mind. Just heard that Newt Gingrich is planning to hold a press conference to tell Tiny Tim to get a job. And take a bath.
