Romney Should Show He’s a Leader, and Here’s How…
If Mitt Romney is to have any chance of beating President Barack Obama in November,
he must win a larger share of the Hispanic vote than current polls suggest he will. And he won’t unless he solves his immigration problem.
It’s a problem of his own making. He decided that beating up on illegal immigrants would boost his popularity among those suspicious that he was really a moderate Republican. In doing so, he injected an issue into the campaign that had largely fizzled — and for good reason. Illegal immigration is down to historical lows — primarily because the U.S. economy continues to be sluggish, so fewer people want to come here.
Romney has plenty of advisers trying to figure out how best to soften his negative image among Hispanic voters. We can expect to see him wolfing down tacos and mumbling a few phrases in Spanish in the days ahead. But neither tactic will do anything but make him look foolish.

When I meet a gay person, I have to distinguish between their being gay and being part of a lobby. If they accept the Lord and have goodwill, who am I to judge them? They shouldn’t be marginalized. The tendency is not the problem … they’re our brothers.
