Working Within the System, 6/15/15

Mitt Romney's self-proclaimed "biggest mistake."

What is it?  That he didn't appeal to working class Whites?  That he didn't win a larger percentage of the White vote?  That he came across - accurately - as a plastic, Chamber of Commerce shill for predatory capitalism?  No!  It's that he failed to effectively communicate to "minority voters" and to assure Hispanics how much the GOP loves "legal immigration."   Emphasis added:

Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney said that, in 2016, his party's candidates need to do much better than he did at communicating to minority voters what the GOP is offering them. 
"I think we have a real difficulty in the party, and myself included, communicating to Hispanic voters and minority voters generally why it is that conservative principles are better for them and their families than those that are being promoted by the liberals, by the Democrats," he told Yahoo's Katie Couric in an interview that went online Thursday. "That's something I didn't do very effectively," he said, calling it "without question the biggest mistake that I made in the campaign." 
The former Massachusetts governor, who challenged President Obama in 2012, said he wants to see the Republican "nominee do a better job communicating to Hispanic voters that we love legal immigration"...

So, who should you believe?  Shaggy-haired English immigrants and their child brides or Oriental love dolls, or the evidence of your lying eyes?  Face it White man, the System hates you, "your" political party hates you and takes you for granted, and absolutely no one represents your interests.

Now, go away and watch the football game, that'll make everything better.
