Democrats Criticize 'Offensive' Comment From GOP Accusing Maryland Governor Of 'Hispandering'
Business Insider ^ | June 23 2014 | Colin Campbell

Posted on 06/23/2014 9:05:27 AM PDT by PoloSec

The Democratic National Committee accused their GOP counterparts of using "offensive" language after a Republican spokeswoman accused Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley of "Hispandering."

A spokeswoman for the Republican National Committee made the comments in a Sunday BuzzFeed profile of O'Malley and his efforts to court Latino voters ahead of a potential run for president in 2016.

"Winning elections is based on substance and so far Martin O’Malley is relying on Hispandering to win," RNC spokeswoman Izzy Santa said. "Talking about immigration and hoping no one pays attention to his failed economic record will not overcompensate for his dismissal of the Hispanic community and attempts to play divisive racial politics."

The Democratic National Committee Director of Hispanic Media, Pili Tobar, fired back with a statement describing the phrase "Hispandering" as both "silly" and "offensive."

"The RNC can’t call for a substantive dialogue, then eight words later coin a silly and offensive phrase that demeans issues important to Latinos," Tobar said.

Tobar went on to tout O'Malley's record on Latino issues like immigration reform.

Democrats do not have a sense of humor. Certainly not while they are in power

Hopefully this will be met with laughter and not apologies. Democrats have zero sense of humor.

That’s “offensive”?

I guess “offensive” = “the truth hurts”

If Jeb Bush ever wins the GOP primary the left will gleefully accuse him of Hispandering because the Left is devoid of shame.

However the BEFORE Jeb Wins that primary the GOP will stuipidly think that Jeb will have the media in their pocket for all eternity if he wins the Primary....

The GOP establishment is that damned stuipid...

They would gleefully listen to the crocadile promise it won’t bite if they shove their hyand in it’s mouth and then is suprised when the croc bears down on their arm, only to repeat it all over again after the croc has had it’s fill and starts promising not to bite again....

The GOP Establishment is THE definition of INSANE when it comes to the media.

The Republicans ie. Jeb Bush and his GOPe ilk try to Hispander, but it fails miserably because the mainstream media certainly always “finds” it offensive.

Everyone should take note: When the left pitches a hissyfit over a word or phrase, encorporate that word or phrase into your daily lexicon and use it often. Hispandering. Get their panties in such a twist it cuts off their air supply.

RE :”He’s a real model citizen, ain’t he bro....”

One of the few ways we can rebel against O Malley is to buy products on the internet from other states businesses, and avoid the 6% sales tax (it was 2% before him) .

So I was pretty peed when some in GOP Senate like Grahamnesty and McCain voted for the Dem internet tax enforcement bill, called ‘tax fairness act’.

I think the two from GA voted for it too.

What do I need Republicans for if they are going to collect O Malleys taxes from me for him??

But they both won their GOP primaries easily.

I guess that means I cannot call O’Malley a drunken, pugilistic potato-head who forgets everything but the grudges, either. Democrats are no fun at all.

Maryland “Freak State” PING!
