GOP ‘Outreach’ to
Hispanics Won’t Work

PJ Media, by J. Christian Adams

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/9/2012 11:44:55 AM

It’s funny watching all the Bush administration alums on Fox despairing over the necessity of outreach to the Hispanic community. (Also at PJ Media, “Yes, George W. Bush Might Well Be the Last Republican President.”) These were the same people who refused to “dignify” the rabid coordinated leftist attacks on President Bush with a response. It would “just prolong the story,” they told us. We are still suffering from their failure to understand the left and fight back, as seen by the fact that Ohio exit polls showed voters still blamed Bush for the bad economy.

Comments:
He speaks the truth but I doubt the Republicans will have the courage to follow his advice.

Dumb, dumb, dumb Pubbies - - terminally dumb Pubbies.

I still haven't heard - - after all these years - - a single Pubbie pol state that the problem isn't immigration - - it's the welfare state.

We're all immigrants - - or from immigrant families - - and the country has always thrived and prospered - - and will continue to thrive and prosper - - if it has immigrants who work hard, obey the law and - - most important of all - - PAY THEIR OWN WAY!

But no Pubbie has every articulated that - - nor will they ever - - because Pubbies are too dumb to understand it and to think that way.

So - - what else is new?

You know what? I'm not giving up. Just found the Hispanic Republicans of Texas and I sent them an email to see if we can start a 'sister chapter' here in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

We can do this!

Mitt and the GOP elite have allowed Obama and Dems to turn GW Bush into Herbert Hoover. Booosh is still blamed for the Great Recession that officially ended in 6/09. Hoover is still blamed for the Great Depression, which ended in 1943, 11 years AFTER FDR became president.

Why did Mitt omit GWB from the August convention rather than have him explain how his 8 years brought more success than failure? Obama still blamed Bush for his own failures. Why was the GOP's best campaigner, kept in exile in Alaska? Ryan disappeared and permitted Biden to overwhelm him in their debate. Repubs don't need to speak espanol, they need to speak honestly and freely on what they have accomplished.

Republicans just don't get it. The simple FACT is that Hispanics are the largest consumer of gov't benefits in the USA.
They want their free stuff. (Not all but most). Obama ran ads in Mexico announcing food stamps in the US !
We can all sing to them as we reach out:
Feliz Navidad !
Either open our country to 20 million Ukrainians, Estonians, Polish, etc. people who wouldn't be looking for free stuff, or continue to walk off the cliff.

Hispanics want free stuff. They will vote for whoever will give them free stuff.

This group and other groups like them are the cause of the demise of America.

#6 You make a great point and one I haven't thought about for some time. What a party. Republicans have treated W as badly as the Democrats and media. Generations of kids will be taught that President Bush was a complete utter failure. Our convention ignored him this year. Disgusting and classless.

You can try to destroy and discredit the so-called 'spokesmen' for these racial groups--that may be a start. And get over it, it's not just Hispanic.

You have to look at Asians, Indians, Middle Easterners as well. The first two took advantage of ginned up H1-B programs (complete with 'body shops' to facilitate and fake qualifications) that collapsed American wages for jobs in IT, project management and many other areas. There's also a major lack of acculturation of the immigrants we already have. Color votes for color, against all economic logic and reason.

Reasons why:
1) Too many immigrants are 'global (fill in the nationality)' and are weakly committed to the US for starters. Doesn't matter if they are hard-working. Mentality remains in the old country, no interest in really being more than superficially American.
2) They brought in their 'tribal' perspective, expectations of corruption, prejudices and working the system from Asia, the Indian subcontinent, Latin America and the Middle East, and are imposing it here.
3) We failed in acculturating them

I speak as the daughter and granddaughter of immigrants, who largely ended their ties with the 'old country' when they came through Ellis Island. We need to drastically wind down immigration, make citizenship meaningful by making it a difficult, long process, end H-1B programs, and not let down OUR standards.

Yeah, "W" was touted as a savior of the party. He got us 40% of the Hispanic vote, but that quickly dissipated. The Bushes, like the Romneys and many of the GOP Elites, are decent and honorable folks (I mean that sincerely), but this election proves that we need instead a few mean SOB's who will do what it takes to save the Republic.

So Adams is correct. The conservative message will resonate with those who have come here legally - Hispanics included. We must simply be not afraid to deliver it. #2 makes a good start. I want a political party who won't be ashamed of that message. The GOP is not it.

The political cure for America is as #7 says: four years to build/strengthen the Tea Party. About hispanics - the solution is not fighting, immigration, anger, division; it is education and insisting that all children learn the principles and history of the American culture. You can bet Obama will push his "I'm the messiah" program to kids. I suppose CA, NY, PA, CT, etc will go along, but states can fight to keep the garbage out and turth in schools. I have never met a hispanic mother who did not want a good life/education for her children. Instead of trying to run them away, we should be making them love America and what it stood for.

Why do we have to "reach out" to different groups? If the ideas that we believe in: private property, limited government and individual liberty are truly universal; we should not have to tailor our message to suit different ethnic groups. If you are free, it does not matter what religion, race, creed of sex you are-YOU ARE FREE!!

Make the case for FREEDOM, no matter who you are addressing.

Any liberal Democrat amnesty for 12-20 million illegal aliens that eventually grants them duel nationality with US voting rights means long-term political suicide for the Republicans.

The highly partisan liberal Democrats would never allow that if they thought that more then a few of the illegal aliens they wish to legalize would ever in the future have an epiphany and vote for conservative Republicans.

Remember liberal Democrats can always out bid the Republicans with minority groups for their votes. Also Remember it was business oriented Republicans seeking an unlimited supply of cheap labor that caused mass uncontrolled illegal immigration to get up a head of steam in the first place.

Pre-amnesty, 37% of Latinos supported Reagan . Post amnesty only 30% voted for HW Bush. Your not going to make buddies with the Latinos by granting amnesty. The major of folks from this cultural background want Santa Claus or Ortega or Lula or Castro or Chavez or Moralaz of Calderon etc etc. No Reagan´s in the bunch. Irrespective of their horrible voting habits, illegals have stolen American jobs, falsified federal documents, cheated on taxes, and violated border security laws. They deserve jail time, not citizenship and government goodies. We support lawful immigration because we are a nation of laws.

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
