The battle between Romney and Rudy on immigration continues. Rudy visited the border yesterday, camp Romney beat the “sanctuary city” drum and today Rudy’s side blasts back with “Mitt’s Fits: Immigration Edition” reminding anyone who hasn’t been following this debate that Romney’s effort to deputize state agents was a last gasp, never implemented plan and that he had his own sanctuary cities. (And in case you forgot: there’s a reminder of those illegal immigrants working on his front lawn.)
There is a revealing Byron York piece in which a miffed Romney demands to know why people still find it hard to understand how he changed his mind on abortion. It is surprisingly only in that Romney appears less than his usual calm cool self. (And to answer his question: 1) Because the tale of the meeting which prompted his conversion has been disputed by the stem cell reseracher who was present; 2) Because he was such a forceful and impassioned advocate for the opposite position just 2 years ago and 3) Because he has changed on so many other issues— guns, sex education, campaign finance, immigration, etc.)
