Gov. Christie touts that 'we won the Latino vote' during stop in Union City

UNION CITY — Gov. Chris Christie today credited long-standing relationships built on trust for his decisive win of more than 50 percent of the Hispanic vote and said he won’t let presidential politics distract him from his second term priorities.

Even as he dismissed 2016 talk, the Republican governor pointed out how his win could serve as a model for other campaigns.

“We won the Latino vote last night,” Christie said before a backdrop of students at Jose Marti Freshman Academy. “Find another Republican who’s won the Latino vote recently. Why? It’s about the relationships.”

Echoing the theme of his acceptance speech, Christie said politicians can’t expect to win votes by showing up in communities six months before an election. Christie will officially take over as chairman of the Republican Governors Association in two weeks and could apply his vision to the 2014 races.

He can do the same thing as the GOP candidate after he promises them citizenship and lots of free goodies.

How many Hispanics are in NJ anyway?

Christie will be the chairman of the Republican Governors association.
It’s a big job needing a big man. Vice-chairman: a bucket of chicken.

Why are we putting pictures of him being fat? We laughed at liberals for doing that when Christie was acting conservative. There are better and more substantive ways we can criticize him as he acted like a liberal and saved Obama’s bacon during and after hurricane Sandy.

Rand Paul’s immigration speech
03.19.13 | Hon Sen Rand Paul (KY)
Posted on 03/19/2013 7:04:07 AM PDT by Perdogg


...The Republican Party must embrace more legal immigration.

Unfortunately, like many of the major debates in Washington, immigration has become a stalemate-where both sides are imprisoned by their own rhetoric or attachment to sacred cows that prevent the possibility of a balanced solution.

Immigration Reform will not occur until Conservative Republicans, like myself, become part of the solution. I am here today to begin that conversation.

Let’s start that conversation by acknowledging we aren’t going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants.

If you wish to work, if you wish to live and work in America, then we will find a place for you...

This is where prudence, compassion and thrift all point us toward the same goal: bringing these workers out of the shadows and into being taxpaying members of society.

Imagine 12 million people who are already here coming out of the shadows to become new taxpayers.12 million more people assimilating into society. 12 million more people being productive contributors.

The bag of lard is right on one thing, the GOP needs Hispanic and black voters. We would have won Virginia easy if blacks did not split for Democrats 95% to 5%. We cannot win as a party of white men. Women, blacks, Hispanics, Asians, Jews, Muslims, homosexuals etc. are reaching sufficient numbers to make us a regional party of the deep South. All resources must be channeled towards winning over atleast some of these groups. Visible minority conservatives like Jindal and West are a good start.

christie is neither republican nor democrat. He is himself and himself alone. He is loyal to no one and considers himself above it all. He can appease latinos and muslims all he wants in NJ, but step into the arena and the heat will melt him.

Re: “How many Hispanics are in NJ anyway?”

New Jersey Hispanics - 18.5% of the population, 1.64 million.

Probably a deceptive number - I believe the Census Bureau counts Green Cards plus illegal immigrants.

More than 100,000 Cubans live in New Jersey, so that would push the Hispanic vote a bit more to Christie.

In the election, Hispanics represented 9% of total votes.

New Jersey is a long way from most of everywhere else.

What happens there is about as relevant to Kansans as Kanye’s twitter account.

You can’t extrapolate a mainstream America victory from Jersey.

Alaska, perhaps.

“Find another Republican who’s won the Latino vote recently. Why? It’s about the relationships.”

No...it's about his support for in-state tuition for illegals, and refusal to fight ObamaCare, which Hispanics support at twice the rate of Whites.

The Latinos who turned out voted for Christie by a slight margin in a sample poll they took. In off years they turn out at a lower rate. Also the ones who turn out may be more informed than the masses in the presidential years.

51% of the hispanic vote wont win the GOP Iowa or Ohio with what the white turnout will be for a RINO. It didnt cost Romney a single state.

But Hilary Clinton is a bigger celebrity so would win the hispanic vote.

Christie is a big spending RINO and is not touching any of the entititlements. Just attacking teachers and certain government workers that everyone hates white or brown.

A gay loving, Muslim loving Republican wont win the whitehouse.

I don’t know if they’re just plain stupid or naïve. Ask any illegal, if you can get them to admit they’re illegal, if they want to become citizens and everyone of them will say no. Why would they volunteer to pay taxes when they’re getting all the benefits without paying them?

“A gay loving, Muslim loving Republican wont win the whitehouse.”

Nope he will not. But the GOPe nominated Romney so they may just try. If conservatives fail to unite behind a sold candidate he can be nominated (and will lose).

“51% of the hispanic vote wont win the GOP Iowa or Ohio with what the white turnout will be for a RINO. It didnt cost Romney a single state.”

The black vote just lost us Virginia. The hispanic vote is starting to make a difference in the Sotuhwest. There certainly needs to be an outreach to minorities and active recruitment of conservative minority candidates, just without compromise of basic conservative principles like national sovereignty with hispanics, or gun rights with blacks.

That he is legitimately pro-life, and can win 60% of the vote in a blue state should be inspiring for conservatives. He deserves scorn based on some of his policies, but conservatives should look closely at him to learn how to talk directly to the people, not be obsequious to the press, and campaign smartly.

Maybe you can put up a link, I’d be interested in seeing the numbers you state. Thanks

And just how do we make folks non conservative believe and live conservatism pray tell?

Of your listed pets only Hispanics are worth the effort but with nearly 60% percent bastard kid rate they don’t look promising

Jews and blacks?

Not enough to merit the effort

Get 10% of them you got jack

10% of Latinos you got something

But I hate to break it to you....you can only out pander to get them

Preach America is a long history of racism and anti semitism and sexism and vile Christian slave raping thugs who stole their wisdom from stone age Indians and Negroids and that you intend to make it all cool now by fundamentally transforming America whereby the persecuted become paid victims at the expense of the productive formerly oppressive white Christian power structure

You promise and deliver that we might get their votes like the dems do

We have passed the point of political solution at light speed

Freepers were slow on immigration and they are slow on this

We invited the turd world in illegally and embraced them and gave them the rope to hang us with or the matches and Kingsford to burn down our long shared culture with.....foolish weak white people

But don’t let me get in the way of good thoughts and ice cream sundaes

Look, it is not written in the stars that black people and Hispanics must vote Democrat until the end of the world. Blacks were Republicans for a century, Hispanics come from many nations that have vibrant conservative movements (think the Cubans who fled Castro). Why is it so impossible to turn them to our side? Conservative policies are good for everybody, you wouldn’t have 75% black illegitimacy if common sense conservative values held sway.

You do not need to pander, look at Martinez, Jindal, West, non of them perfect but certainly overall conservative and able to be elected in both liberal and conservative states. It is doable.

“We have passed the point of political solution at light speed”

So what now? Grab our guns and fight? If we can’t win at the ballot box, how can we win on the battlefield?

What a blowhard asshole!

Christi is only popular in the Northeast States that are BLUE, so it’s easy to understand why the MSM keeps touting him as the GOP nominee for ‘16. He doesn’t stand a chance in Middle America, Texas or the South.

I’m really tired of seeing the GOP trot out lame candidates, like Romney, now maybe Christi, Santorem, Ryan, Daniels, etc., from the Northern States. They don’t understand a damn thing about what the rest of the country (minus the Pacific States) considers important.

Looking at the post WW2 period, northern republicans don't get elected prez. You have Texas, Texas, California, California, and Kansas(born in Texas).

Amongst the dems you have a Illinois transplant, Arkansas, Georgia, and Missouri.

"Your knuckle dragging attitude is the reason we lose elections."

Knuckle-dragging, huh? Allow me to present you with an "enlightened" female point of view.

Blacks and Hispanics are never going to turn the tide for us. You can do all the outreach you want, and you may get a few, but the majority are going to stick fast with the Dem party for the entitlements. A hard truth, but there it is.

I'll never support someone politically based on his race or ethnicity. I don't pander, and I don't get excited everytime someone comes along who happens to be black and conservative, as though we have a new pet to adopt. Allen West and Ted Cruz happen to be two of the few politicians worth anything these days, IMO, but it's because of their positions on the issues and their uncompromising strength. West's race and Cruz's last name are irrelevant to me.

Besides, look at blacks' reaction to West and Herman Cain. They hold them in utter contempt---detest them. Why do we keep believing a black conservative will win over minorities when experience tells us otherwise? And the same is true of our women, like Sarah Palin. Liberal women go insane with hatred over them.

You're also wrong about the reasons for the Virginia loss. I live here; I know. The reasons Cuccinelli didn't make it were 1) the scum in the RNC who deprived him of funding, and 2) women. No, not women.....tramps, floozies, tarts, and assorted other suspect characters with whom I unfortunately share a gender. They're nothing but walking, talking genitalia, obsessed with abortion and birth control, and so mind-numbingly stupid that they bought into the fearmongering about Cuccinelli.

To hell with them.
