Latinos Post:

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s appearance in a forum by Spanish-language network Univision Wednesday night in an effort to attract Latino voters may have backfired on him. Viewers took to social networking sites to complain that Romney had “dyed his face brown” to appeal to Latino voters…

“When I’m president, I will actually do what I promise, I will put in place an immigration reform system that resolves this issue,” he added.

Romney was later asked if he would deport young undocumented immigrants who arrived in the United States as children and he answered, “I’m not going to be rounding people up and deporting them. We’re going to put in place a permanent solution.”

However, much of what the presidential candidate said was overshadowed by his apparent and overly tan face. According HuffPost Latino Politics, left-wing blog called Democratic Underground said that Romney had “dyed his face brown for his Univision interview.”

We feel it’s safest to leave this matter to our readers, guardians of good taste that they are.

A poll also follows.

Do you think Romney intentionally had darker makeup applied for Spanish language television?

    The campaign is reeling at the moment, and that’s the environment in which bad ideas look good.

    It’s possible that it was just a bad makeup job. It’s also possible that TPaw’s sudden resignation as co-chair of Romney’s national campaign to become a lobbyist is because the campaign doesn’t really need two people chairing it, so let one of them go while they’re rounding third. Sure, happens all the time.

    I was most struck by the comment about having a “permanent solution” for young undocumented immigrants. Sounds a little ominous to me…

      He’s not for anything that allows these young people to get immigration status.  But he just vaguely says he is going to find some “permanent” solution for immigration.  It is nonsense.  He either wants to deport them all, wants them to deport themselves, or wants them to stay here in the shadows.  He’s already ruled out any other solutions.

      • BlueCat says:

        where he admits his policy for addressing the Israeli/Palestinian puzzle is just hoping something happens sometime down the road.

        I think his promise to find a (just typing this gives me the creeps) “permanent solution” for immigration is pretty much the same thing.  He’s got nothing. Doesn’t believe that any solution is possible.  Just wants to please the hardcore righty base and hope he doesn’t need much in the way of Latino votes. Leave it for some time in the vague future.

        Or maybe it’s the same plan for both situations.  Illegal immigrants will conveniently self deport and Palestinians will conveniently decide to move to some other Arab country which will conveniently decide to take them.  And then maybe unicorns will appear to give us all rides across the rainbow where pots of gold will make us all .001 percenters. Never mind the math.

    Everyone wears make up on tv. He’s tanned, and ready.

    That ‘s a thing.

    And he said “permanent solution” not final.

    And besides his dad was born in Mexico, right. Or was that his grandfather.  And so he and his ancestors have a special love for Mexico.
