    24 hours after Romney's speech, Obama spoke before the Hispanic Leadership Council. The vibe was extremely different as Obama was warmly received by the audience. He started out by thanking people in attendance by name. He then went into the record of Republican action in regards to immigration over the last three years pointing out that they vetoed "The Dream Act" even though it passed through the house and senate by a big majority. Then he pointed out that Romney had said he would have vetoed the dream act. He pointed out the differences between Romney's economic plan, which is top down and Obama's, which is bottom up. He showed a great deal of poise and grace..and seemed very comfortable. The speech itself was quite good and filled with specifics. I give it an A.

    Romney doesn't stand a chance with the Hispanics, no one can buy votes like Obama, it is one of the few things in life that he excels at. Buenos Noches DA.

    I saw it.

    Obama said that people should believe what Romney says when Romney says he would "veto the Dream Act."

    Beautiful move by Obama.

    It was a great speech and Willard doesn't stand a chance with the hispanic vote.
    His next move likely will be to do his trademark flipity-flopity and shift to the hard right with a strong anti-dream act, anti-anything but deportation and build a wall coast to coast view to rally the hard right rednecks.

    His speech, just 24 hours, before Obama's speech..did just that. It was an "etch-a-sketch" moment with no specifics.

    Romney's in a box with Hispanics. And it's one he made.

    really?
    DREAM Act - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    I'd hardly call those votes a big majority, and it obviously did not pass both the House and Senate, or Obama would have signed it into law, so your claim that it passed both is bullshit.

    Given today's partisanship?

    Yeah..that was a big majority.

    It was filibustered.

    What was bullshit was Mitt's claim the President didn't do anything.

    That was bullshit.

    Exactly. The dream act was passed by both the house and senate, but the GOP did what they do best, abused the filibuster to shoot it down.

    Just like most everything the GOP does, they were high-fiving each other after the fact, but now that they realize this was another in the long list of democratic proposals that the american people strongly supported, and are now back tracking and making up excuses for their childish actions.
