Mitt Romney Kinda Sorta Takes a Stand on Immigration

Surprise! Mitt Romney, who was immigration’s most strident foe during the primaries, has suddenly discovered that “we can find common ground here, and we must.” Also unsurprisingly, he’s still declining to take a firm stand on President Obama’s mini-DREAM order:

“Some people have asked if I will let stand the president’s executive action,” he said. “The answer is that I will put in place my own long-term solution that will replace and supersede the president’s temporary measure.”

Okey dokey. More mush from the wimp, I guess.

UPDATE: More detail here from Adam Serwer.
