At the dinner, Romney often stuck to familiar talking points. But there were moments when he went beyond the familiar campaign lines. Describing his family background, he quipped about his father, "Had he been born of Mexican parents, I'd have a better shot of winning this."Other than the technical response..."HE WAS!" I imagine this statement would have gone over REALLY well if he'd said it today before them, really well indeed.

It gets even worse
Too bad the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce he spoke to today didn't get wind of these statements made privately to supporters before Romney spoke to them today.
