Is Mitt Romney Mexican-American Redux?

Romney-2012-donate

Mitt Romney, with a win in the New Hampshire Republican Presidential primary yesterday, certainly has been in the news. In recent days, there also has been considerable publicity about Romney's roots in Mexico, with a cousin who still lives in Mexico surfacing for an interview. I hate to remind everyone that, in 2007, ImmigrationProf blogged about Mitt Romney's Mexican heritage with his famous father George Romney having been born there.

UPDATE (1/13): Ruben Navarette Jr., as usual, has an interesting take on Mitt Romney's Mexican roots and reminds him that us that Romney has taken positions that have alienated Latino voters.  I must say that the "revelation" that George was born in Mexico appears to have captured the American imagination.  See, e.g., here and here.
