US Congressional elections

Of course in this country Romney was 6% so a voice of authority he is not. Yet his common sense comes across every time he speaks, as it did in 2012. So now the elections for Congress and one-third of the Senate are a salvage operation. For us it’s Melbourne Cup but for them its an even more important race. This is Romney trying to get the 53% to finally start to do what needs to be done. But what is most interesting about this article is not what Romney said but the comments that come after which now number around 2500!

Mitt Romney predicted on Sunday that a Republican Senate would break through congressional gridlock and pass legislation on immigration reform and trade.

Appearing on “Fox News Sunday,” the former Massachusetts governor and 2012 Republican presidential nominee warned that President Barack Obama would move after Tuesday’s midterm elections toward “amnesty” on immigration reform, a reference to the White House’s decision to delay executive action on immigration until after the elections. But Romney said a Republican Congress would pass a more conservative immigration bill focused on border security that the president would sign.

“You’re going to see a provision, first of all, to secure the border,” Romney said. “Second of all, to deal with those who come here illegally. And third, to make sure our immigration policies are more open and transparent. … That’s going to happen. You’re going to see a bill actually reach the desk of the president if we finally have someone besides Harry Reid sitting in the Senate. So, we’re going to get it done.”

UPDATE: I thought I’d put in a video of Mitt Romney speaking in the last few days just to add to the colour of the post but try finding something recent on Romney that is also positive. Not easy although also obviously not impossible.
