Skip to comments.Romney Camp: Obama Not Macho Enough For Latinos
Posted on 10/15/2012 1:10:22 PM PDT by Olog-hai
Mitt Romney aides say he has made crucial gains among Florida's Hispanic voters by portraying Obama as fatally weak, a perception they argue has particular power in the Latino community.
A new Florida International University/Miami Herald poll released over the weekend shows President Obama leading Romney among likely Latino voters by just seven points, 51-44 percent. A Tampa Bay Times/Miami Herald poll released late last week actually showed Romney ahead of Obama by two pointsan 11-point shift from a month earlier. And a third poll, released Sunday by Public Policy Polling, shows Romney down just three points among Florida Hispanics.

Make an ad showing The Disaster throwing a baseball. That will take care of the Latino vote.
Lloyd Bridges or Ricardo Mantalban?
Mitt just called him a Girlie Man or a Eunuch or something. LOL!
Not sure this is something the Romney Campaign should be bragging about. It reminds me of Ed Rollins, comments about Black ministers and walking around money after Christie Todd Whitman’s first gubernatorial win in NJ. But at least Rollins had some common sense to keep his mouth shut until after the election.
Us old school Micks don’t respect weakness much either.
“Make an ad showing The Disaster throwing a baseball. That will take care of the Latino vote.”
Ha!! I was just about to post that the Latino’s must have seen him throw! Nice job!
The Queen of the Choom Gang.
The word “Macho” appears nowhere in the text.
It sounds like an editorial gloss.
My wife could have made a better throw. That was impeachment grounds for me.
If you want “tough guy” you could think, maybe, of Clown Joe Biden who flirted with biker chicks. Mitt’s overtly “toughest” act was to bring scissors to the scene of a schoolmate that was being hazed, in a nonserious threat to clip said schoolmate’s prized long hair. (All accounts were that none of his hair was actually touched.)
But “tough guy” is so overrated. It is the idol, the image, compared with substance that even an unbeliever like Mitt can show. I don’t know if privately some kind of relationship with the actual Jesus Christ is going on in spite of Mitt’s professed Mormon faith. Or if Mitt truly thinks he can work his way to heaven through the Mormon system of evaluating works. But Mitt outclasses Barack, whose Christian roots appear to be illusory.
Word is that Obama was given a Quinceanera ceremony when he turned 15.
Maybe 0bama's a Catcher:
To the headline: what does this headline have to do with with the report?
But the maricon is?
Anybody have the one with Obama riding the bicycle??
Latinos don't like that Hussein is fully in touch with his feminine side?
I hate it when the consultants have to give themselves credit in the press for any strength of their candidate. (Or in this case, the conservatism of Cubans.)
