The Etch-a-Sketch strikes again.
From The Hill:
… [Romney] also reversed course on a key part of the DREAM Act, pledging to provide permanent residency for illegal immigrants who came to the United States and children and graduate from college. [sic] This is a major shift from Romney’s message in the GOP primaries, when he only pledged to provide that path for illegal immigrants who serve in the military.
So Mitt’s Etch-a-Sketch machine has kicked into hyper-drive.
If Obama were to promise unicorns, Mitty would promise unicorns with RIBBONS!
Please understand, this is a man who will say anything to get his way, and I can’t think of a more dangerous person to consider for the office he seeks.
Alfalfa and fresh carrots instead of hay! Apples instead of oats!
Few will remember that George W. Bush campaigned on his “bipartisanship” and record in working with Democrats. Few will remember, because he moved hard right on the first day in office and never never ever ever modified his hard-line positions thereafter. Romney seems that on steroids.

Romney tells Hispanic group Obama takes them for granted
By Justin Sink – 06/21/12 12:23 PM ET
[...] After a week in which he frequently played defense on immigration, Romney also sought to turn the subject back to the economy by asking Hispanics if they were better off than they were four years ago.
“Tomorrow, President Obama will speak here, for the first time since his last campaign. He may admit that he hasn’t kept every promise. And he’ll probably say that, even though you aren’t better off today than you were four years ago, things could be worse,” Romney said.
“He’ll imply that you really don’t have an alternative. He’s taking your vote for granted,” Romney continued. “I’ve come here today with a simple message: You do have an alternative. Your vote should be respected. And your voice is more important now than ever before.”
Ah, Mittens the Pander Bear.
None will comment, so inured are we, on the fundamental hypocritical absurdity of Mitt Romney accusing anyone else of not keeping their promises or being less than truthful. To one party, lies are immaterial; to the other, they are so endlessly thrown by the first as to beggar commentary.
In other, unrelated, news: Anne Romney’s position wasn’t reported, which makes perfect sense, since her “dressage” horse* made it to the Olympics last week.
Because, you know, it’s hard, being a stay-at-home working mom trying to raise a dancing horse.
[* Wikipedia: Dressage is occasionally referred to as "Horse Ballet".]
