I’m white and I’m proud of my ‘community’ . I was happy to have Mitt Romney as my candidate and I only wish he’d won .
It is MY PEOPLE that founded this country and fought and won every damn war we ever had , up until Vietnam and things have been pretty damn inconclusive ever since .... Only then did the other ‘communities ‘ come in . Those communities have won no were near the creds that we have , not shed nowhere near the blood . If any of those communities don’t like that fact , they can go pound sand .

Re: “Why does anyone post articles from Politico?”

I have a better question, kitty.

Why have FOUR Republican governors trash talked Conservatives at the Hard Left “Politico” website in the last four days?

Well, Ms. martinez, you do not look like me.

Furthermore you do not have the same gentalia as me.

Therefore I will never consider you for anything, not even maid.

If someone is some kinda' hispanic and they jus' gotta' vote for someone who looks like them, clue ~ go back home.

hispanics are hardly in short supply in the Americas!

Frankly I prefer redheads without freckles who can't tan ~ and by golly there are only a few of them around, and most of them never run for public office ~ too much Sun!

Still, due to the mystical and mysterious forces of history that flow unbidden through the currents of life MOST all those redheads live in the USA.

Romney was wrong about 47% of the nation being on the take, looking for handouts, free s**t and wealth redistribution.

According to this site it's 51%

Her comment does confuse me. Elect people who look like their communities? Romney wasn’t running for mayor, he was running for president, so would the ‘community’ in this case, be the majority white population?

I wish all republicans would stop doing ANY interviews to blatantly hostile papers, networks, and online publications. NOBODY who reads freakin’ Politico is ever going to vote anything but communist.

How do republicans elect more minorities when the LIBERALS in the MEDIA do nothing but trash those minorities for being conservative?

Libs won’t admit it out load but there is an unspoken agreement within their ranks that a minority can ONLY be a liberal. Otherwise they MUST be attacked!

And attacked they are, women MUST be liberals, if not they are attacked like Sarah Palin AND her children. Where was NOW defending HER?

Alan West attacked relentlessly, where is the NAACP?

So libs and their minions in the media stack the deck then claim that it is the OTHER persons fault.

I say since all the libs think the republicans have all the money that said republicans BUY the media outlets so WE can get OUR word out.

We will never win another presidential election unless we LEVEL the playing field. The media pimping for the left has to be worth a trillion a year in free advertising.

Beat em at their own game, own them

Statement: ""We have to start electing people who look like their communities..."

Response: A statement directed to Americans of European descent that they must comply with the ongoing Third World conquest.

Comment: Euro-Americans apparently cannot effectively resist the ongoing Third World conquest. That being so I would suggest a governmental program training Euro-Americans how to accept insults, beatings, killings of family members, the use of our women for pleasure purposes, unemployment, lack of educational opportunities, discrimination, methods of addressing our coming African masters in order to avoid their ire.

When did Mitt become a conservative? I know he played on tv during the primaries. All Martinez was saying is that the GOP needs to expand its base, which it does need to do. Unfortunately deporting or causing the self-deportation of 12 million people is not realistic. And demanding that it happens serves no useful purpose.

New Mexico is firmly attached to the government teat. If you add up dependents on social security, dissability, native amaricans, labor unions, pro-illegal representatives in the roundhouse, and military defense contracts for white sands and the labs, it’s not surprising that the state voted overwhelmingly for zero. We’re >50% parasite down this way.

Republicans should not do interviews with nayone until they figure out what the hell it is they stand for, which I expect isn’t going to happen, because they do not stand for anything.

I’m not interested in this racist crap, honestly, if this is all they got, then it’s over, this is garbage.

When you say ‘real thing’ I’m not sure to whom you refer.

Ronald Reagan was not running. Mitt, as accomplished as he is, is still ‘tainted’ in the eyes of minorities with having white bread persona, also he has no real zip.

We need some one that can appeal to those persons out in various hoods who won’t spend much effort to understand the ideology of the candidate. Most voters decide based on soundbites and pop culture snippets. To elect someone the GOP must represent as appealing to those with a 5 minute attention span.

No, Whites are a minority in NM since Hispanics chose not to be included as “White” they (Hispanics) are now the majority.

Sorry, Governor, but shouldn’t voters vote on what is Costitional, rather than “who they look like”?
You made an impressive speech at the convention, please live up to it, or we will all be subjects of the “leader”, regardless of what party.

We have to start electing people who look like their communities

THAT is NOT a conservative policy position .. it's simply more baldfaced race pandering in the service of vote pandering !

Gutlessness like that is why the right keeps losing .. and why we're on the verge of losing OUR Constitution, and with it OUR country !

If you need further clues, gargle 'merit promotion'.


glad to help

“61% of Hispanics voted AGAINST her when she ran for governor in 2010.”

Good point. Obviously if white New Mexicans who put her in office followed Martinez racially biased advise she would not now be governor and her white Dem opponent would be in office pandering to the needs of the 47%.

My community looks like Americans......don’t care if they’re of Italian, Irish, Spanish, Greek, etc. heritage as long as they pledge allegance SOLELY to the United States of America, they followed the laws of the land and they assimilate into the American culture vs forcing culture of another country on neighbors. If my fellow community neighbors celebrate the customs of their heritage in their own homes that’s fine; don’t try to do away with American customs.

It would be nice to have leaders with the courage to say hypenated nationalities are no longer acceptable. We are AMERICANS period! We’d all be from the same community!

Mrs. Martinez’ comment is very disappointing. She gave a great speech at the Convention. And, now, like Jindal and Christie she throws fellow Republican under the bus. Democrats don’t do this! I’ve called Jindal’s office and now I’ll call Martinez’ office......and the RNC...get a grip on these Republicans and, btw, Mr. Priebus, subtract one from the GOP roll. I’m disgusted with all of them.
