Mitt Romney Tells Fundraisers He Wishes He Was Latino

Mitt Romney, the least Hispanic person ever, really, really wishes he was actually Hispanic. Yes, the man who has accidentally quoted Fidel Castro and flubbed Cuban slang for lady parts thinks that if he was of Mexican decent, he'd have an easier time beating Barack Obama.

A video of Mitt Romney talking to millionaire fundraisers was leaked today to both The Huffington Post and Mother Jones.

In the video, Romney paints roughly half of Americans as those who feel entitled to government help.

"My job is is not to worry about those people," said Romney in the video.

Though, in one of the more awkward parts of the video, Romney laughs that it would be easier for him to win the election if he was of Mexican decent.



"My dad, as you probably know, was the governor of Michigan and was the head of a car company," said Romney. "But he was born in Mexico ... and uh, had he been born of uh, Mexican parents, I'd have a better shot at winning this," Romney says in the video. "But he was unfortunately born to Americans living in Mexico. He lived there for a number of years. I mean, I say that jokingly, but it would be helpful to be Latino."

Oh, poor Mitt Romney, its so hard being white America. As history has shown, it's virtually impossible for a white person to win elections in this country.

lol what is wrong with him? it is a fact that it is easier for a white person to win any election than any other race. why does he think that there is more than 50% whites in the house and congress than any other race. if mitt was latino he wouldnt have made it this far. life would have been much harder for him and these big businesses would have never given him the time of day.

Federal spending has risen at the lowest pace in nearly 60 years under Obama. It's the unpaid wars in Iraq & Afghanistan under Bush that were not on the books, which cost 3 trillion dollars (& counting) via the blatant misuse of emergency spending powers; including the massive deficit busting tax cuts for the super wealthy & the massive expansion of Medicare that no one wanted - all under Bush. Obama brought the economy back from the brink in 2009 & created almost 5 million in last 30 months.

@Melissa, post your address & save ICE some time! All illegals are not Latino or Hispanic, just ask a Canadian!

Some people wanna be white, others Latino. It's natural to want to be something you can never ever be. Unless you're M.J., then my argument is invalid. XD

There's a perception that all of you were born with a silver spoon. You know, you never had to earn anything and so forth," Romney said to the donors. "Frankly, I was born with a silver spoon, which is the greatest gift you can have -- which is to get born in America."

where is romney real birth certificate Romney favors a U.S.-Mexico fence, opposes education benefits to illegal immigrants and suggests those here illegally should deport themselves by leaving the country voluntarily Self-deport? What the heck does that mean? I have no doubt Hispanics have been alienated during this campaign. But now there’s an opportunity for Gov. Romney to have a sincere conversation about what we can do and why. I absolutely advocate for comprehensive immigration reform. Republicans want to be tough and say, ‘Illegals, you’re gone.’ But the answer is a lot more complex than that.Don’t just talk about Hispanics and say immediately we must have controlled borders. It’s kind of insulting when you think about it”

Ah yes. Then he could join the long line of Latino Presidents who had it so easy. Romney is giving "Not A Witch" and "Second Amendment Remedies" a run for their money for worst campaign in history.
