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.
