Rosie Perez asks of Mitt Romney: Easier as a Latino? Actually...
When Mitt Romney joked in his infamous "47%" video that it would be easier for him to get elected if he were Latino, actress Rosie Perez took his premise and ran with it for this video from American Bridge, and lays the hammer down squarely on his head.
Rosie Perez: “What if you had a vagina? If you were a gay Latina this election would be in the bag for you!”
“Unfortunately for you, Mitt, you were cursed. Growing up as the son of a wealthy governor and auto executive. And when your father paid your way through private school, Harvard, Harvard Law, and bought you your first house, I just can’t imagine how difficult that must have been for you.”
“But the truth is, the reason Latinos aren’t voting for you, is that your policies suck. Being Latino wouldn’t win the election for you. But saying, jokingly, that you wish you were, might actually lose it for you.”
