Mitt Romney Kind Of Opposes Obama's Executive Order On Immigration Because It's "Short Term"

This is what Mitt Romney had to say about President Obama's executive order on immigration.

"I believe the status of young people who come here through no fault of their own is an important matter to be considered, and should be solved on a long term basis so they know what their future would be in this country," Romney said after a campaign stop in Milford, New Hampshire.

So, apparently he's against long-term amnesty*, but for long-term amnesty. Very convincing!

"I think the action that the president took today makes it more difficult to reach that long term solution because an executive order is, of course, a short term matter and can be reversed by subsequent presidents," Romney said.

Notice that Romney didn't say he would reverse it. Just some unnamed "subsequent presidents" might.

Willard better come up with a stronger denunciation, but quick, or the Malkinite Minutemen crowd otherwise known as the base of the Republican Party will revolt.

*And yes, I'm using the term ironically.
