"If kids in this country want to be successful in this country, they need to speak the language of this country," Romney said, to applause from the crowd.
The problem with that? In 2002 Mitt Romney opposed this provision, before he supported it. In what is fast becoming a trend, Mitt has gotten in the habit of saying whatever he needs to say to get elected. According to a Boston Herald article in April 2002, Mitt Romney refused to endorse a ballot initiative replacing bilingual education with English immersion. His spokesman said it went “too far.” Investors Business Daily also noted his opposition a month later.
In June 2002, Mitt reversed course according to the Associated Press.
These things are going to continue to follow Gov. Romney it appears.
