Part 2 Of Mitt Romney's Secret Tapes: 'Jokes' About The Latino Vote. And It's Really Not Funny . . .

Oh, the things that come out of Romney’s mouth when he thinks he’s in the 1% circle of trust.

EDITOR’S NOTE: This is just one of many clips from the secret recording a participant took at one of his closed-door fundraisers. We’ll be featuring more, so keep your eyes peeled!

Mitt Romney on his quest for the presidency: “My dad, as you probably know, was the governor of Michigan and was the head of a car company. But he was born in Mexico… and had he been born of, uh, Mexican parents, I’d have a better shot at winning this. But he was unfortunately born to Americans living in Mexico. He lived there for a number of years. I mean, I say that jokingly, but it would be helpful to be Latino.”
