    Was when Romney said about the company that hired illegals to work on his lawn...

    "So we went to the company and we said, look, you can’t have any illegals working on our property. I’m running for office, for pete’s sake, we can’t have illegals. "

    Seriously?

    So it wouldn't have been a big deal if you weren't running for office?

    The man just summed up his character in two sentences. Decisions are made based on whether he is running for office, not on those silly notions like "Right and wrong".

    Not the kind of man I want making life or death decisions involving our servicemen and women...

    "I'm running for office for Pete's Sake, I can't have illegals"

    This means that his opposition to hiring illegals has to do with the problems it might cause for his presidential bid and not his concern for the law.

    US Illegal Immigrants, Mass Deportations Face New Scrutiny
    December 23, 2011 - The U.S. government is currently reviewing orders to deport thousands of illegal immigrants in two cities, at a time of great division on the issue at federal and local levels. In the past fiscal year, a record 396,000 undocumented immigrants were deported from the United States, with more than 300,000 cases still pending.

    Not the kind of man I want making decisions of any kind.
    Gingrich is just as bad, and consequently just as unqualified.

    That's nothing. I think worse was when he said his sons were doing something more important than serving in Iraq. Which was helping him get elected president.

    Or when he explained why he hosed down his dog. That was much worse.

    The worst thing he has said, the one I will never get past, is that he would sign NDAA as it is written.
