It’s fine for Republicans to yak about Obama’s Kenyan father but Tebow forbid anyone mention Romney’s family’s past…even when Romney brings it up:
In an interview with the Daily Beast on Thursday, the outspoken governor suggested Romney could identify with Latinos better if he talked about his family’s roots in Mexico.
It’s “kinda ironic, given that his family came from a polygamy commune in Mexico, but then he’d have to talk about his family coming from a polygamy commune in Mexico, given the gender discrepancy,” Schweitzer said. (Schweitzer noted that women, in particular, object to polygamy, or the practice of having multiple wives.)[…]
Romney has mentioned his father being born in Mexico a couple of times, at least — once in remarks at an Iowa event in December and once at a January debate in response to Newt Gingrich’s allegations that Romney was “anti-immigrant.”
“Mr. Speaker, I’m not anti-immigrant,” Romney said. “My father was born in Mexico. My wife’s father was born in Wales. They came to this country. The idea that I’m anti-immigrant is repulsive.”
