Romney faints on stage after learning that like Obama, Reagan granted amnesty

GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney is reportedly healthy, and has already been released from the hospital, after having collapsed on stage at a campaign event earlier this evening. According to witnesses, Romney collapsed on stage after learning that Ronald Reagan granted amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants back in the 1980's.
Witnesses say Romney was ranting that President Obama should be brought up on criminal charges and impeached after an audience member at the town hall-style event in Ohio asked him what he thought of Obama's announcement earlier today that his administration will stop deportations and grant work permits to undocumented immigrant students eligible for the Dream Act.
But the next audience member Romney called on asked the former Massachusetts Governor why Obama should be treated any differently than former President Ronald Reagan, who granted amnesty to 3 million undocumented immigrants in the 1980's. Witnesses state that Romney at first attempted to deflect the comment, insisting he “needs to see proof,” and that “the subject needs research.” But after another audience member confirmed Reagan's amnesty program, Romney became visibly dizzy, falling onto his podium before continuing to fall down onto the floor, unconscious.
Secret Service agents rushed onto the stage, and Romney was taken to a nearby hospital within a few minutes of his collapse. Sources close to the campaign report that Romney nearly woke up during his ambulance ride, but passed out again after realizing that the paramedics responding to the incident were talking about a co-worker whose life was changed by Reagan's amnesty push.
“Mitt feels fine. He's looking forward to getting back on the road and bringing his views of American prosperity to the people as soon as he's able,” explained Romney Campaign Manager Matt Rhoades. “He still disagrees with Obama's newest immigration policy, even though it's a major contradiction to his love of Ronald Reagan. He'd still gay-father a child with Reagan out of wedlock if given the opportunity, and our supporters will understand this better once Mitt gets back on the road again.” - Return to Previous Page
