"We call on Herman Cain to drop his candidacy for president. His recent comments and lack of practical solutions to solving illegal immigration show hes not a serious candidate," the Somos Republicans group wrote in a statement released Monday.
"Many Hispanics find his recent comments comparing immigrants to 'invading Huns' offensive, and also insensitive when thousands of immigrants died crossing the desert. Were looking for practical and humane solutions, and find Cains pandering to xenophobes disgusting. Apparently nativist tea has been served up at many tea parties! Hispanics are a key swing vote, and whichever GOP candidate succeeds in winning the nomination cannot win the general election without the Hispanic vote. Cain needs to leave the field open to more serious candidates," Somos demanded.
Apparently the Arizona-based organization, which claims to be "the fastest growing Hispanic Republican group in the nation," was not impressed with the inspiration the former Godfather's Pizza chief executive received on a recent trip to Asia.

When *ssholes hate you, you’re doing right.
Whiney collectivisits. DEFUND all socialist collectives, foreign and domestic. HOORAY Herman Cain!
You’re both right ;-)
A trifecta for pissing off the L.A. Slimes too!
The comments by Cain that got the Somos group all riled up:
“I just got back from China,” Cain told potential voters in Pella, Iowa, in early June. “Ever heard of the Great Wall of China? It looks pretty sturdy. And that sucker is real high. I think we can build one if we want to! We have put a man on the moon, we can build a fence! Now, my fence might be part Great Wall and part electrical technology,” Cain continued. “It will be a 20-foot wall, barbed wire, electrified on the top, and on this side of the fence, I’ll have that moat that President Obama talked about. And I would put those alligators in that moat!”
Hear hear, Herman.
An Arizona based “republican leaning” pro illegal alien latino activist group has announced they don’t like Herman Cain. Guess he has to quit now.
Based on their agenda, the Somos Republicans have been proven to be a Liberal DEMOCRATIC group. They are not who they say there are... they are socialists not conservatives.
That sounds like an excellent solution or at least a good start.
Cain must be over the target. Serious solution to immigration is to enforce immigration laws. This is United States territory, and only those we say can come here can come here.
“Hispanics are a key swing vote”
Conservatives need to stop pandering to identity politics. When you give preferential treatment to one group, to buy their votes, another group loses out.
The only way to really be big tent, is to be color blind.
Also, courting those who don’t have the right to vote, should be the sole domain of the Rats.
Racist Peas of Sh!t LA Times.
I agree, you should always be sensitive to the needs of criminals who are hurt or die while committing their crimes.
Notice how quickly the word "illegal" is dropped.
>>”Many Hispanics find his recent comments comparing immigrants to ‘invading Huns’ offensive<<
I can’t find that quote, but does any one want to lay odds Mr. Cain compared ILLEGAL aliens to invaders?

Luther Cain Jr., born March 16, 1925 in TN, died March 29, 1982 in Atlanta, GA

Herman Cain is a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN
Barry Soetoro aka Barack Hussein Obama ISN'T!
He’s not afraid of PC and tells it like it is. After this administration, he is what America needs to get us back to where we should have been.
I supposes many Huns dies crossing the plains into Europe. Best bet is to stay home, then, and avoid the desert altogether.
"Many Hispanics find his recent comments comparing immigrants to 'invading Huns' offensive, and also insensitive when thousands of immigrants died crossing the desert."Illegal immigrants died crossing the desert? Nobody said these Huns were smart.
