SAN DIEGO -- Recently, I was on a Latino-themed radio show defending John McCain. The defendant was accused of abandoning comprehensive immigration reform, turning his back on Latino supporters, and associating with a bad crowd (read: Republicans). I didn't give an inch. I was the only person in the discussion who actually knew McCain -- from my stint 10 years ago as a reporter at a newspaper in Arizona -- and I could attest to the fact that the senator had always gone to bat for Latinos. At one point, another guest scolded me in frustration: "Look, it's not about John McCain. It's about the Republican Party!"

Audiences may clap and smile politely during a panderer's speeches... but nobody ever really respects him, afterwards.
I agree. People do tend to. I live in CA and, right or wrong, all I know is, at least here, the Immigration/Illegals issue has very much hurt the Republican Party. And they identify it with the Party. They don’t care where an individual Republican may stand on the issue.
Obama is not black. He is half white, partially black, and who knows what else.
Calling ‘Jose The Plumber’...
The funny thing is there are a lot of ‘Jose The Plumbers’ out there!
I'm a (slightly jaundiced) Caucasian !

They want “spread the wealth” concept as well.
Free education, free college, free health care, free
homes (ACORN) and free childcare (ACORN)
There is still time White people, keep your
country as your fore fathers gave you.
Elect McCain and Palin.
make it a big lie say it often and they will believe it.
I don't know how we can change this negativity that has been propagated against us.
That's it. The amnesty crowd wants freebies and lax border security, and they know they're more likely to get that with Democrats in power.
It certainly would have been much brighter to try it out on a much smaller scale. Because it may very well be too late to do much about it.
Absolutely. Most ethnic groups lose their tribal mentality after a generation or two of assimilation, but blacks are still immigrants emotionally, and so many Mexicans have immigrated in such a short time that they have formed ethnic enclaves which resist assimilation. That is why immigration, legal and illegal, must be kept at a reasonable level: in order to allow the natural process of assimilation. Otherwise, instead of adding immigrants and their descendants as members to our unique society, we are diluting our unique society with assimilation resistant third worlders.
But Blacks and Latinos hate each other. Surely the GOP can exploit that anger. I love the Spanish language ads that that Mexican soap opera star is doing over abortion wherein he mentions how 1/3 of all abortions are Latino babies and that it is a deliberate attempt to exterminate them from the Obama crowd.
Bambi wants to spread the wealth of the Gringo.
Indeed. Once Latinos reach Critical Voting Mass, They will make permanent the privileged status minorities now enjoy in education, hiring, and business, as well as "spreading the wealth" through taxation, and reining in law enforcement, border enforcement, and drug enforcement.
Here's Obama's socialists bonafides
Heres a New Party newspaper story about Obama - ( Socialist newspaper from Chicago )- front page from the late 90s...
To see it look at reply #6
He is more Arabic than African. He’s an Arab-American, not an African-American.
How can McCain be losing at all?
In terms of their impact on the future of this country, there is NO CONTEST between Obama and McCain.
The lesson is that the people will always vote for the guy offeing something for nothing. McCain and Palin offer to spread the opportunity while Obama wants to spread the wealth. Opportunity means work and the possibilities of failure. If that’s the case then as the song goes”take the money and run”!!!
There is a Jose the “Plumber” in this vid, which features homemade vids sent in to the McCain campaign—
A boy asks his mother why am I more black than white his mother says don’t go there every time I think of that party your lucky you don’t bark.
I a poll of the US military posted here , Mac was getting 60 % of the latino vote wearing the uniform.
Yep, I lived in New Mexico for a few years. It’s the perfect model. All government employees are hispanic. It takes 50 million years to get anything done and corruption is pretty rampant. The non-Hispanic people live in their own gated enclaves or sections of town and venturing outside of them can range from iffy to downright risky.
Blacks have not assimilated as well as they should have by now because they have been kept on welfare plantations and because their “civil rights leaders” fear that, if they do assimilate, they will no longer be a reliable voting bloc, but, rather, will begin to vote more on issues other than race and handouts.
There’s a vid around here somewhere of Obama talking about how it threatens the Rats’ ability to elect blacks if blacks move from inner city [plantations] into the suburbs.
I think it may be this one:
He’s not losing them.
They’re in a profession where two things are very different.
Hard work is the way of their world, as is opportunity.
Everything in the their world is earned not given.
This is factually incorrect. His father was a member of the Luo tribe, which is considered a typical "black African," by which is meant what used to be called Negroid, tribe.
Eight more days will inarguably tell the tale, either way.
Guass what Jaun y Jorge - you can’t out pander the Democrats. Once you’ve reached the absolute limit in terms of what you think you can get away with, the other party has just barely started.
It's been that way since the 60's. Before that, it was segregation which prevented Blacks from assimilating.
They read Free Republic and got grossed out by all the hatred expressed towards them here.
We could have had the Latino (that is, born-here or legal immigrant) vote if we had tried for it or at least been civil. Not all Hispanics are illegal, poor, on welfare, or want to speak Spanish to the 5th generation. But people here and in the GOP in general lumped them all together with the Dem’s specially tended group of dysfunctionals, and this is the result.
It is the BIG FAT so called TAX CUT for 95% of Americans. Not complicated.
The Democrats have been in power for the last two years. Have these people got anything yet?
Their self induced exile is their problem they choose to keep versus solve. Minorities under a Socialist Democratic form of government will ALWAYS be victims.
For the hyphenated americans;
Digo al americano que dicen el " american" escrito con guión; ..... su opción a no ser un americano. Eligen ser víctimas. Serán siempre víctimas hasta que los reconozcan SEAN americanos. Su exilio autoinducido es su problema que eligen guardar contra solucionan. Las minorías bajo forma de gobierno Democratic socialista serán SIEMPRE víctimas.
For their socialist handlers;
Я говорю американцу они говорят " hyphenated american" ..... их выбор, котор нужно не быть американцом. Они выбирают быть жертвами. Они всегда будут жертвами до тех пор пока они не подтвердят их американцы. Их ссылка наведенная собственной личностью их проблема они выбирают держать против разрешают. Несовершеннолетия под социалистической демократичной формой правления ВСЕГДА будут жертвами.
Stay safe !
I wish more people were aware of this.
Well, his wife is a dog!
This country is great and the dream of so many immigrants because of our opportunity. This is the country where through hard work and perseverance you can improve your life and your children's lives. There is plenty of room for immigrants who want that dream, regardless of what race they are. We don't have room for racial grievances, whether the race is white, hispanic, black, asian, or any other race. We should stand for freedom, not any fears of racial persecution. Immigration should be regulated and our laws should be scrupulously enforced, for the protection of the immigrant and of the citizens. But people who want to come here for freedom and opportunity should be welcomed.
“How many white folks say with pride, “I am a white person”? Not many.”
Modesty is becoming.
I think it will become more necessary in the future to defend ourselves as white people.
You will not win the “race doesn’t matter” argument — race HAS TO MATTER to the left. They use it to create undeserved guilt in white people.
The left is working overtime to destroy “whiteness” which amounts to white culture, capitalism, individual freedom, etc.
These things are not owned by white people but you can’t explain that to a leftist — if they can paint capitalism as “whites only” then, why not? It serves their purposes.
We had better start thinking about defending our children from this irrationality and RACISM.
If the GOP loses this election, the failure of the Presidential candidate to be anti-illegal immigration will be a major reason why.
This was a HOT topic a year ago and people were waiting for someone to emerge who would make this a centerpiece of his campaign. Instead we allowed things to get distracted by “reaching across the aisle” Mormonism, etc.
The situation will only get worse until their are riots in the streets. Maybe then “moderates” et al will wake up and see you can’t compromise or pander. They just push for more and more and more.
“How Can McCain Be Losing Latinos?”
Because the MSM says so.
Freebies and lax border security? Yes, they have both. (They've been getting both for decades now). And as I (correctly) pointed out, they're more likely to keep getting them with the Democrats in power.
I wish someone would make the issue of how Obama treats his own family, he didn’t try to petition his brother who is living in a hut on a dollar a day.
Compare that to McCain Adoptions etc...
Obama has no heart, McCain cares and loves...
Even if I don’t agree with him on immigration, there is no one running that deserves the Latino vote more than McCain.
If he doesn’t get it, I think the wrong candidate was chosen in the primary.
"Fortunately", I vote in California, which (because of immigration-driven demographic change) is permanently beyond GOP reach, and again isn't being contested...so my non-vote is of no consequence (Yes, I will vote down-ticket).
He shouldn’t be losing Latinos. McCain and Kennedy lost a battle to give them all a free pass to American Citizenship.
A call for people to come together based on nothing but skin color? That's really pathetic.
aside from Cubans most Latinos come here from dysfunctional corrupt patronage oriented nations
that they would subsequently be attracted to Dems here is obvious
that and the anti-white nature of their sentiments politically aside from the Cubans who at least in the first few talented and moneyed waves were very White.
so here we are ...we have opened th gates to the very peoples wishing to usurp us
we fought hard about this on FR 3-4 years back....lotsa blood and bannings including me
and now as the right dishonorable Reverend Wright loves to say without fear that fighting John McCain will ever challenge him on it....”the chickens are coming home to roost”
with the help of totally emasculated white folks too...make no mistake of that
