So, now.....is the ‘game’ to get as many minorities as the other side? Frankly, I could give a crap about black, hispanic, asian, inuit, samoan, etc. I care about legal Americans and the HISTORICAL conservative values upon which this country was founded. If we pander to these groups we become the equivalent of the party that now supports the tyrant in the White House and his entire regime.

I have an idea. Let’s form a group to get REPUBLICANS elected. I don’t give about their complexion or who their ancestors were, or what kinds of sex they engage in. When you start down that road you have already strayed from what it means to be a Republicans and an American.

Good! George P. Bush is an excellent, genuinely conservative person and I think it’s extremely important to make it clear that not everybody in the GOP hates Hispanics. I saw a GOP candidate send two Hispanic women out of his fundraising meeting in tears. These were well-dressed women from Miami who, judging by their accents, were American born and brought up, but had Spanish last names and dark hair - and he launched into a tirade against Hispanics, something he would never have done discussing blacks, Chinese or any other group.

We need to get a grip on this.

So no one, no one at all, will have a problem if I launch a group:

Right?

I’m the link. I was there, and I’ll tell you his name privately. To his credit, I wrote him a letter about it and he responded and said he had never really thought about the effect of his words, simply because he wasn’t used to having Hispanics in the audience. (I happened to be sitting near these women and I had been talking to them before the speech began, and they were committed conservatives - well, probably until his attack).

Like it or not, you’re going to have to overcome your hatred and realize that it is necessary to build alliances if we are going to have any impact on elections.

Ya see, some of us are not surprised by this at all.

Some of us knew damn well that the wealthy Bush dynasty would one day fund and support the Nephew on a run for the Presidency. George P. Bush is all about Mexicans and Mexico, and he knows he will get their support...

Exhibit A: "The Hispanic Republicans of Texas"

The fix is in.

Yet you have no news link for this?

Why should there be a news link? This was a local event at which I was present (and they rarely cover GOP events anyway around here). If you want to call me a liar, go ahead, but I’m not lying.

Why is it so hard for you to admit that hating people because of their ethnicity is not only wrong but short-sighted?

Hispanics are not a different race...they are people from Latin America, mostly European in background (including Italian and German), and some with a mixture of Indian and/or black...who come from a place where Spanish or Portuguese are the predominant languages. That’s not a race.

Furthermore, most of them are Christians, no more practicing that most Americans, alas, but we’re much more on the same wave-length with them than people like the Muslims that Obama wants to bring in from Africa and the Middle East.

Gettign CONSERVATIVE Hispanics elected as GOP office holders (like Marco Rubio) is CRITICALLY important.

But ANY Bush can go to hell in my book - they are NOT conservatives but globalist RINOs and are responsible for Barrack Hussein sitting tin the White House.

You seem to be suggesting that the Hispanics in Florida will only support a Mexican or Hispanic for office. Is this what you're implying?

I don’t know of anyonbe in the GOP who hates hispanics. Perhaps you need to choose a better set of friends.

I don’t vote for people based on any criteria except those related to the convictions they demonstrate; their sex, religion, national origin, or race have no impact whatsoever on my decision.

What? We should now embrace identity politics like the Rats? No, thanks.

I'm very happy about this. Most Hispanics are natural conservatives.

Though I despise dividing people by race, the fact is that we need to broaden our base, and if we have to reach out to a closely-knit group of people, then that's what we should do.

Broadening our base does not mean diluting conservatism; it means reaching out to those who agree with us on the issues but aren't yet on board with us politically.

We need to educate our natural allies and help them understand that conservatism works and socialism is a failure.

George P. Bush is perfect for this. He is an extremely talented speaker and a born leader.

I've heard this before, and have heard the same regarding blacks. The fact is, there is nothing particularly naturally conservative about either group.

This is a meme that conservatives seem to like to tell themselves over and over. I have no idea why.

As an Hispanic (or 1/2 anyway) I think it's important that conservative, Constitutional values are presented to and taught to all Americans. Looking at demographics, it makes since for conservatives to target specific groups just like liberals are wont to do. Conservatives should have an outreach campaign to newly naturalized citizens. Let them know that most conservatives are not racists and that they are just trying to make sure the gov’t lives by the founding documents that these people have just studied. Large groups of conservatives together tend to be welcoming and it's good for Hispanics to see that since the liberals have been telling us all our lives that Republicans hate Hispanics and they can pull tons of comments in and out of context to bolster this view. I was having a discussion about this with 2 Hispanic ladies at work when my worst client, an Obama-worshipping bitch of a college prof, printed off page after page of comments from conservative sites and made sure to highlight the many, many racist comments. Please, please, please fellow conservatives, reach out and help these misled people understand that liberals lie and our Republic is a beautiful thing that must be protected at all costs. Most have been publically educated and poisoned by the liberal education fascists.

Because he said that Hispanics contributed nothing and were all on welfare (far, far from true, even if you’re talking about Mexican day laborers, but certainly not true when you’re talking about self-made Cuban or Puerto Rican businessmen and wealthy refugee Venezuelans and Ecuadorians) and then went into a rant, only displaying his ignorance, about Spain and how horrible it was. I don’t know why he did this, because it wasn’t even relevant to what he was talking about, which was his candidacy for a county office. This was something the the women had obviously been prepared to support or they wouldn’t have been there.

He was an ignorant man who obviously didn’t know that the whole concept of “consent of the governed” to which Jefferson referred and the idea of the legitimacy of a people rising up against an unjust ruler came from the 16th century Spanish Jesuit Suarez, and that the concept of natural law also came via Spanish and Italian sources from Greece and Rome.

Still, be that as it may, the news media never covers things like this unless they expect it to be something that would be beneficial to the Dems. Come to think of it, maybe they should have covered it, because these two women...and probably everybody they knew...probably went right off to the Dems immediately after this. I was very disappointed in this candidate, and in fact, so were others, because he lost dismally in the election when it was held.

And I think this is the point George P. Bush is making.
