Political suicide, anyone?

In an article referenced by Scott earlier today, Byron York shows that Mitt Romney did not lose the election because of his failure to win the Hispanic vote. Romeny would have lost in Ohio, Virginia, Wisconsin, Iowa, and New Hampshire even if he had gained a large portion of the Hispanic votes in these key battleground states. York also demonstrates that, as we have argued, Hispanics are not a natural Republican constituency. If anything, they are natural Democrats for reasons unrelated to the immigration issue. Exit poll information suggests that Hispanics based their votes on a number of issues

FTA: "Moreover, because Hispanics favor Democratic positions on a wide range of big issues having nothing to do with immigration, supporting liberal immigration reform will not win many Hispanic votes. Given these realities, I see no political case, from a Republican point of view, for supporting a path to citizenship for illegal aliens. To contrary, supporting such reform looks something like an act of political suicide."

Mark Levin in a rerun segment tonight had figures that confirm this. Going back to perhaps the early 1980s, voting I believe for national office, only one Republican ever won the Hispanic vote, and that was with 52% of the vote. Remainder were barely even close, favoring the Dems.

GOP to Hispanics: Keep one thing in mind. What the Democrat Party did for the black family, they can and will do to yours.

They are supposed to be a more "conservative" demographic. I doubt it. We´ll see.

What is the solution then? There has to be some pathway to some sort of legalization. The GOP needs to lead here. And Hispanics could/should be a large part of the party. They are going to be a huge part of the America´s future; we need them and they should need us too!

Jurno is on the mark. Spain and Portugal have been bastions of socialism for 70 years!!!
Name a single nation south of the Rio Grande that ever had/has a center-right electorate starting from Columbus?
The canard that Hispanics/Latinos are a natural R constituency is the sort of sanctimonious BS that an illiterate moron like Bill O´Reilly spouts daily.

While I agree about the immigration issue being irrelevant. I totally disagree with this author´s statement that Hispanics are naturally Democrat constituents. That is baloney. I see absolutely NO reason why they would normally drawn to the Dems except that they have been propagandized and indoctrinated into believing the party has their best interests at heart. They don´t, however.

Exactly, Latinos are pro-family, not pro-abortion... why else do two grandmothers, newest baby et al all come to Sunday dinner... and stay four hours...

The prob with the GOP is the message... or lack thereof...

Anyone who thinks that the GOP can win the hispanic vote is deluding themselves. It isn´t ever going to happen.

In my opinion, the pathway to legalization is I-5 to Tijuana or I-10 to Ciudad Juarez. Get in line and prove that we need your skills here, just like all other legal citizens. No rewards for illegal entrance.

Romney was absolutely correct on 2 things: the 47% and the gifts. You don´t need polls to tell you that the 47% are freeloaders!

"Keeping abortion legal"! The last I knew it is still legal in this country! So, they believed in the lies of democrats. Balkanization of the country is what democrats are doing. Take a look at England and see what that has done to the country.

Am surprised, because so many Hispanics are Catholic, that abortion on demand was a big issue, and still wonder at the validity. But for all those now crowing that we must change our stance on abortion, as far as I am concerned that is being hypocritical........especially in the case of live birth abortions. That is an issue so scandalous that nobody wants to touch it, say its name, and it is unconscionable!

Romney´s 47% comment has to be taken in the right perspective and read finely between the lines. Thats why it makes such an excellent sound bite - for the opposition. The average social security check is roughly $1200 per month, about half of which comes from the payments made by the recipient and the other half? Pure entitlement coming form those who have payed far more than the minimum required and taxes payed by current workers. This is inconvenient but true. The question really is do you get more from the government than you put in. And 47% seems about right

The vast majority of illegal aliens are poor people, who when they can find jobs earn a low wage, and they are generally uneducated people who come from socialist oriented countries and have large families.

If they are legalized they will gain the right to bring all their immediate foreign family members into the USA. In a few years under a liberal Democrat "path to citizenship" amnesty they would be able to bring their foreign parents here in unlimited numbers.

In order to survive here with the high cost of living, most of them will have to participate in the government provided social safety network of everything from food stamps to "free" health care as there are not enough good paying jobs in this country anymore to support such a massive population of uneducated and unskilled people.

These many millions of illegal aliens have been indoctrinated since coming here by the many ethnic and immigrant advocacy groups who are politically allied to the liberal Democrats that the Republicans will take away those government social welfare benefits and services and that the liberal Democrats will maximize those social welfare benefits and services.

They have also been told and have learned that although it was Republican business interests for cheap labor purposes who allowed mass uncontrolled illegal immigration to get up a head of steam in the first place while talking a good game of immigration enforcement, that it is the liberal Democrats who will not enforce the immigration laws at all.

It is fool´s gold for Republicans to believe that more then a very small minority of the massive illegal alien population group who the liberal Democrats want to legalize will ever vote for conservative Republicans.

If hispanics were a natural Republican consituency, California would be the reddest of red states. They aren´t, and it isn´t.

So what if they´re catholic and pro-family. They still vote Dem and will because they´re huge users of our welfare system into the third generation. They´ll continue to vote for their freebies.

So immigrants come from Latin America, obtain a drivers license and sign up to vote via motor voter. Even if they have a permit to work, they still vote.

The federal government tracks them down and provides all of the various Democrat give away payments - SNAP, rent subsidies, utility subsidies, free health care.

So when the time comes to vote, they are told that the Democrats furnished all the money to them. How could they vote against the ones responsible for taking care of them?

Social Security stops trying
to collect on old debts by

Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/14/2014 10:13:04 PM     Post Reply
The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Despite promises to the contrary, it appears that State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) voted on bills that affect her clients and favorably impact the bottom line of her law firm. “I have never done anything in a way that represents a conflict in my voting and something that would benefit me personally,” she said in an interview, but state records seem to tell a different story. The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project. That would be all well and good except for the fact that the

Democrats Lose Two More Special

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Nevada ranch standoff could leave

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

Overland Park city spokesman Sean Reilly says two people died at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City campus and one was killed at Village Shalom, which is a retirement community that is several blocks away from the center.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box.

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it."

I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes.
