Mitt Romney is a smart politician who knows an opportunity when one pops up.
Rick Perry’s clumsy defense for taxpayer subsidies of illegal alien college tuition was a complete failure in the Tea Party debate (where he was booed by the audience) and later in last Thursday’s Fox debate when other candidates slammed his laxity. Press commentary has followed, calling Perry’s coddling of foreign lawbreakers a critical flaw.
The response from Romney’s campaign is a new video ad, demonstrating Rick Perry’s similarity to President Obama on the topic of illegal immigration. Sweet.
