    Btw - my favorite part of Mitt’s video, is when he jokes to the audience that he would have an easier road to the Presidency if he was a Latino.

    Yes, let’s ask all of our previous Latino Presidents how much easier it was for them.
    President Juan F. Kennedy, care to chime in?
    How about you, President Ricardo Nixon?

    Oh yeah, they’re deceased.

    How father and son Presidents, the Jorge Bush’s?

    Yes, start calling yourself “El Gaunte” Romney and tell us how that works out for you?

    Just remember, El Guante, for every Hispanic vote that’ll get you, you’ll lose thousands of old cracker votes, since they hate the Messicans and Reekans.

    Not quite "A Few Words in Defense of Our Country," but I'll take it.
