Another hour, another hidden camera story about Romney; this time he says it would be helpful to be Latino


It seems like we can’t go a full news cycle without another hidden camera catching Mitt Romney saying something ridiculous.

hidden camera caught Romney joking at a fundraiser that he might have a better chance at winning the election if he had Mexican grandparents.

“My dad, as you probably know, was the governor of Michigan and was the head of a car company,” said Romney. “But he was born in Mexico… and had he been born of Mexican parents, I’d have a better shot at winning this. But he was unfortunately born to Americans living in Mexico. He lived there for a number of years. I mean, I say that jokingly, but it would be helpful to be Latino.”
