Was there not a movie called Raising Arizona? Nick Cage and Holly Hunter stole a baby to raise as their own.
Well, Obama may win this Arizona as a result of Romney’s a) honesty, b) political insensitivity, or c) the company he keeps.
“Has Mitt Romney put Arizona in play for 2012?
By Al Kamen
Okay, so Super Tuesday last week wasn’t quite super for Mitt Romney. None of the Three Amigos — Rick, Newt and Ron — was knocked out. Women voters were seen as fleeing the GOP as a result of that contraception chatter and Rush’s observations.
Then a Fox News poll last week gave Obama a whopping five-to-one lead over Romney among Latinos, a group that gave President Bush about 40 percent of its vote in 2004 and gave John McCain, even with President Obama’s huge win, a fairly respectable 31 percent in 2008.
The poll found that Obama slightly leads even among Latinos who voted for McCain four years ago.
That much erosion takes really hard work — and Romney clearly has been up to the task: Unlike Bush and McCain, he’s staunchly opposed to the Dream Act, which provides avenues for citizenship for folks who entered the country illegally as minors.
Romney recently named former California governor Pete Wilson, despised among Latinos for pushing an anti-immigrant law there, honorary chair of his California campaign.
Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, who helped write tough anti-immigration laws for Alabama and Arizona — which Romney called a “model” — is a Romney adviser.
