Amnesty is back

When John McCain complained that a Mitt Romney advertisement had characterized McCain’s program for dealing with illegal immigrants as “amnesty,” Romney denied it. “I don’t call it amnesty,” said Romney. McCain, though, was telling the truth. Romney, well, wasn’t.

Now Romney has a new Internet-only ad out comparing McCain to Hillary Clinton. And guess what? The ad criticizes McCain for supporting “amnesty.” Somehow I don’t think Romney will deny it this time.
