Not an endorsement I wanted to see...

Tom Tancredo's endorsement of Mitt Romney is not a good thing for Mitt.

In essence, it means no real solution to the very real problems we have on the southern border. Instead, we get the usual BS that we have seen - we'll get a fence that will ultimately be as effective as the Maginot Line, we'll raid a bunch of fast-food joints and landscaping companies, and we will delude ourselves into thinking our borders will be secure.

Meanwhile, what it will really take will be ignored in the name of ideological purity.

You overstate the importance and meaning of endorsements, which is why you worry about it.

Just because Tancredo endorsed Romney doesn't mean that Romney agrees with Tancredo's policies. All it means is that Tancredo agrees with Romney's policies more than with any other candidate, as a complete package.

Just because Tancredo supports both a fence and Romney, it doesn't logically follow that Romney also supports a fence.
