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.

Simple.

#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.

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

Sheesh! Talk about a complete ingrate... Many people suspect that the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) instigated an over the top paramilitary confrontation with Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy at the behest of Senator Harry Reid especially since the new BLM director, Neil Kornze, was an aide to Reid. So how does Harry´s son, Rory Reid, thank the BLM rangers for putting their lives at risk over desert tortoises that are being euthanized by the Feds? Why, he slams them as "losers" on Las Vegas television station KSNV where Rory serves as a commentator from the left. You can see Reid in

After his Masters victory, pro golfer Bubba Watson celebrated with his family at a Waffle House. Pictures tweeted from there went viral. Waffle House appreciated the appreciation. What´s not to like about this great story? Apparently some self-appointed nanny state-loving guardians of nutrition like Katherine Tallmadge believe that Watson set a bad example for Americans by eating there. Oh, and with her powers of telepathy, she just knows that Watson´s a complete phony about what he really eats. She went after Watson on one of Neil Cavuto´s Fox programs yesterday, and in doing so caught talk show host Rush Limbaugh´s

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." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it.

In fact, since 9/11 extremists affiliated with a variety of far-right wing ideologies, including white supremacists, anti-abortion extremists and anti-government militants, have killed more people in the United States than have extremists motivated by al Qaeda´s ideology.

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

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

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

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

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. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru
