Remember way back when Mitt Romney was against the DREAM Act? Well, actually it was as recently as January when he said he would veto it. How times have changed since he got the nomination. His response to President Obama's DREAM-like Act actually suggests he wished Obama had gone even further.
"It's an important matter to be considered and should be solved on a long-term basis so they know what their future would be in this country," Romney said. Obama's executive order to allow some illegal immigrants to obtain work permits and stay in the U.S. legally was problematic, he said, because "an executive order, of course, is a short-term matter. It can be reversed by subsequent presidents."
This is clearly the tack he's chosen, which is to criticize Obama's failure to pass anything without acknowledging that he himself is on record as opposing passing anything.
