So, as Romney tells it, he couldn’t control whether or not his landscaper hired illegal immigrants, which is why you need to vote for him so that he can push for enforcement! If there hadn’t been a follow-up questioning his management competence, this would have been a moderately effective dodge. It’s not a fully satisfactory answer, since the same company was engaged in these practices last year, as we all know. Even so, the follow-up question seems a bit lame to me–the man has actually rehabilitated corporations and did put the Salt Lake City Olympics in the black, and we’re really going to question his judgement and doubt his competence as a manager because his landscaper has hired illegal immigrants? Really? Now if you want to make this about his utter inconsistency on immigration, be my guest. That, however, is a matter of his policy record and his reputation as, as I have put it, an “opportunistic fraud.”
