Republican Presidential Nominee Mitt Romney held a campaign event Monday evening at a juice shop in Miami, Florida owned by a convicted Colombian coc aine trafficker. Romney appeared at El Palacio de los Jugos, which is owned by Reinaldo Bermudez. Court records show that Bermudez pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute coc aine in 1999 and served three years in federal prison.

Just like he knows all about NASCAR because he knows somebody who owns a NASCAR team. He knows all about Hispanics because he knows a rich Colombian drug smuggler.
I keep looking at the photos and I don't see the Hispanic crowd he was speaking to at his Hispanic event.
Found some Hispanics.
I can't stand Romney, but... really.. you cannot tell a Hispanic by the back of their head....
Hispanics come in all skin/hair/eye colors.... we don't all wear giant sombreros and ponchos...
Instead, what Romney did address was that he would strengthen the southern border and say he would “stop illegal immigration.” His address, however, seemed to leave something lacking, at least for one Latino Republican interviewed by Telemundo, who noted that what the U.S. needs is comprehensive immigration reform. If Latino Republicans at a Latino event aren’t buying Romney’s border security talk, you’d think it would behoove him to speak to the Spanish language press.

No Hispanics would show up after the Quip about the Mexicans.
He is Methodically destroying the GOP's credibility with the few supporters they have left.
So there you have it. It’s strange, as this guy said, that Romney’s own family totally ignored the law, immigration law, when they fled the U.S. to Mexico, then when they came back, but when it comes to other people seeking opportunity they can’t have it. Truly an interesting story, check it out. I’m sure as the campaign goes on we’ll get a better idea of Romney’s stances with regard to the economy, healthcare, education and other important Latino voter issues.
