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.

The funny thing is there are a lot of ‘Jose The Plumbers’ out there!

They want “spread the wealth” concept as well.

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

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.
