You see, Rick Perry has an EXTREMELY liberal record on illegal immigration. He opposes a fence on the U.S./Mexico border. He opposes E-Verify. He opposes Arizona's immigration law. He signed a law giving illegal immigrant children in-state tuition, and when asked about it in a debate stated that anyone who disagreed with him had no heart.
Rick Santorum quotes Perry as an advocate of a joint U.S./Mexico health insurance system.
So, faced with this 100% disqualifying record on a subject that most Tea Baggers find extremely important, what does Perry do? Have an "interview" with a Blogger where Perry changes 90% of his positions, spins the other 10% wildly and says, "You know, that is what I really meant all along." (Oh, and sorry for that heartless crack -- I regret that....you heartless bastards).
Has there EVER been a less penetrating set of interview questions? My lord. "You said X a week ago. You really meant "not X" right???" "You said you opposed X -- and what you meant by that is X is really, really good and you tend to support it on a regular basis, right?"
Wow. Pathetic. How about going with the GWB theory on illegal immigrants? "Look, wealthy corporate CEOs give me a lot of money and they like having cheap labor who won't talk back for fear of being deported. So am I in favor of illegal immigration? You bet your ass I am!"
