Mitt Romney, the least Hispanic person ever, really, really wishes he was actually Hispanic. Yes, the man who has accidentally quoted Fidel Castro and flubbed Cuban slang for lady parts thinks that if he was of Mexican decent, he'd have an easier time beating Barack Obama.
In the video, Romney paints roughly half of Americans as those who feel entitled to government help.
"My job is is not to worry about those people," said Romney in the video.
Though, in one of the more awkward parts of the video, Romney laughs that it would be easier for him to win the election if he was of Mexican decent.

"My dad, as you probably know, was the governor of Michigan and was the head of a car company," said Romney. "But he was born in Mexico ... and uh, had he been born of uh, Mexican parents, I'd have a better shot at winning this," Romney says in the video. "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."
Oh, poor Mitt Romney, its so hard being white America. As history has shown, it's virtually impossible for a white person to win elections in this country.
