Rick Perry’s jabs cracked Mitt Romney’s heavily shellacked veneer last night. How instructive, eh? Byron York notes:
It wasn’t clear whether Romney thought hiring illegals was bad in itself or whether he just thought it would look bad for a candidate pursuing the Republican nomination for president.
I’m sure Mitt changed his position multiple times over the course of the last few years depending upon the crowd and setting. So he could cover his bases, you know. Evil illegals. Poor wenches. It’s not their fault. But don’t put ’em on my property, ’cause I’m running for office!
I was ecstatic to see Perry animated. He did take it far. But to what great effect. (More please!)
