Thompson Reems Romney

By on 12.4.07 | 5:39PM

Statement from spokesman Todd Harris:

"First Mitt Romney was FOR illegal immigrants working on his lawn, and then he was against it, then for it, and now I guess he's against it again. Sounds like his position on amnesty."

UPDATE: A rival camp chimes in: "After having thrown stone after stone on the illegal immigration issue, it looks like Mitt Romney's glass house has finally shattered. Talk about the height of hypocrisy." Next in the queue: employing the adage that you should not interfere when a rival is in trouble, Rudy Communications Director (never shy) Katie Levinson says: "I think it speaks for itself."

UPDATE 2: Patrick Hynes, the blogger outreach consultant for McCain, broadens the response: "Ever since he changed his position on illegal immigration reform earlier this year, Gov. Romney has demagogued the issue to death. This latest incident shows he is no more sincere on illegal immigration than he was on the day he laughably insisted that he is a lifelong varmint hunter. Or the time he said he voted for Mike Dukakis because he wanted to vote against Bill Clinton twice. Or the time he said Ronald Reagan was his hero even though he doesn't support President Reagan's economic policies. Or the time he said he he strapped his dog to the roof of his car during long distance trips because the pooch enjoyed fresh air. Or the time … or the time … or the time …" Well that would be one way of looking at it.
