One of the most controversial comments made by presidential candidate Mitt Romney was his quip that getting elected would be easier if he Latino. Well, Rosie Perez begs to differ.
Here are some of Rosie’s statements to the governor:
“Hispanics represent 17 percent of the population and account for less than 2 percent of elected and appointed officials.”
“Unfortunately, Mitt, you were cursed with the hard-knock life growing up as the son of a wealthy governor and auto executive. And when your father paid your way through private school, Harvard, Harvard Law, and bought your first house, I just can’t imagine how difficult that must have been for you.”
“But the truth is, the reason why Latinos aren’t voting for you is because your policies suck. Being Latino wouldn’t win you the election. But saying jokingly that you wish you were might actually lose it for you.”
