Poll: Can the GOP
Win Over Hispanics?

Commentary, by Alana Goodman

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 12/13/2012 5:34:41 AM

Via Politico’s Alexander Burns, the latest poll from right-leaning pollster Resurgent Republic found that the GOP has some serious image problems with Hispanic voters: • Hispanic voters say the Republican party does not respect the values and concerns of the Hispanic community by 51 to 44 percent in Florida, 54 to 40 percent in New Mexico, 59 to 35 percent in Nevada, and 63 to 30 percent in Colorado. • Majorities of voters in each state say that “is anti-immigrant” better describes the Republican Party,

Comments:
This has a whole lot less to do with "goodies" than it does with speaking of Hispanics with respect. We have to learn to do it or we´re doomed to forever losing national elections.

My experience has been with Cubans. They insist on speaking Spanish and it has reached the point here where it is difficult for an English only speaker to get many of the jobs. When they get into an office or factory they bring in their friends, speak Spanish to each other and cold shoulder Americans. My mother was harrassed out of a shoe factory. My daughter who was born here works for a large doctors´ office. Most of the help is Hispanic. Not a day goes by but that some Spanish speaking patient reprimands her for not speakikng Spanish, asks her where she is from since she does not speak Spanish, and tells her she needs to learn it.

Saying the right is anti-immigrant is a huge lie and distortion. Just because the right wants immigration to be done in an orderly and law abiding way,doesn´t make them anti-immigrant.Countries have borders for a reason,it´s to protect their internal integrity as a nation.

I don´t have a problem ith people coming in hereon a wrk visa,then returning home after they´re done working or an employer writing a letter of reccomendation for an immigrant worker to stay in the country.

If people can´t understand that there´s a rule of law for a reason,they need to be kicked out.Theleft wants anarchy at all levels because miscreants are more likely to vote for them.
The anchor baby law is also something that grates conservatives. There´s no way you should sneak in here at 8 months pregnant and get a full plate of taxpayer provided benefits after the brat plops out. Send a token amount of money back to their country along with the kid..Or at the very least put a 5 year limit on their benefits.

#2, that is the problem. The image the GOP puts forward is of categorizing all Hispanics as a lawbreaking nightmare. We have to show that we know and understand the difference between long-time, hard-working Hispanics and their families who are as legal as you or I, from the lawbreakers who come across the Rio Grande in the middle of the night. Our Hispanic citizens are rightfully offended by the perceived lack of respect.

We have this curious belief that America is a melting pot. A place where people don´t forget the place where they came from, but who have come here to begin a new life.

Yet here we are trying to "win over Hispanics". If winning over Hispanics means opening our doors to them without regulation, allowing them to come in and stay here in violation of our longstanding laws (of which they are aware), and tolerating their committing crimes against our citizens and each other, than why must we pander to them? Win them over? Because the Democrats do?

We won´t be able to ´win them over´ until we all use English as a Second Language. I will not shop in a store (Lowe´s for example) that displays product in two languages while living 1200 miles from the Mexican border- which is exactly where their language should cease unless they are truly visiting. Words have meaning and so does language if you value your country.

"Hispanic voters say the Republican party does not respect the values and concerns of the Hispanic community ...".

IMO the exact opposite is the truth for many (not all) illegals. And that includes the First Kenyan.

Why is it that persons coming to America from other countries, where our language is not used, expect us to accommodate to their continuing use of their original language? Hispanics, Asians, you name it? Many seem to have no interest in learning to speak English.

But we must respect them, win them over.

Have you ever felt, while in a foreign country, that its citizens were trying to win you over?

The official language of Texas is Texan. We do not sound anything like the English.

Most Latinos learn enough Texan to get by, or they don´t get a decent job. To most people, that is motivational, not discrimination.

Saying that the Right is anti-immigrant is just like saying Republicans are racist. It is a lie and the Left knows it will be upheld by the MSM, Hollywood and others. Protests such seen at this site never work for two reasons.
One, many of those targeted with this propaganda want to believe it as it justifies their voting actions. Two, many within the Republican ranks see it as a means of blaming conservatives, Tea Party etc.
Ronald Reagan was attacked as being racist right from the start (people like Paul Krugman are still doing it) but it never worked because he was truly connected with the grass roots. This is why the tops down Beltway installed candidates like McCain and Romney are failing.
Even Jeb Bush whose wife is Hispanic will be attacked as racist and anti-immigrant by these people. The truth has no bearing.

Pretend you are John Sandoval, age 60, born in the US, as were your children, your wife, your parents and your siblings. You are a veteran of Vietnam. Your father fought in Korea. Your brothers are military veterans. All four of your children graduated high school. You work two jobs because you are trying to pay off your mortgage. You voted for Barack Obama because you are offended and frightened of GOP conservative rhetoric about "Hispanics". What comments on this thread would convince you that you are mistaken?

If you think John Sandoval is not representative of large numbers of good citizens of Hispanic heritage, you are terribly wrong.

#13, there were 65 million incredibly ignorant people that voted for obama last month. John Sandoval is one of them. He needs to see what happens when we go "over the cliff", and the "Bush tax cuts for the rich" affect his pay. He may begin to educate himself, like I did in 1978-79.

If Hispanics who are here legally are so concerned about how they are being treated, why can´t they step up to the plate and add their voices to the rest in regards to illegals? They could go a long way towards helping to rectify the situation.

I join the rest here who are sick and tired of being denied jobs and harassed because we don´t speak English instead of Spanish.

If the hypothetical Mr. Sandoval chooses to believe liberal spew and vote for destruction of his way of life and a debt load his decendants will never be able to pay off, instead of educating himself on what conservatives actually believe, then he only has himself to blame for the misery which he has sentenced his family to.

Every student of American religious history has heard of the event known as “the Great Disappointment.” In 1818 William Miller, a former naval captain turned lay Baptist preacher, developed a new method for calculating biblical chronology to arrive at the conclusion that the millennium would take place sometime between 1842 and 1844. Finally published in 1832, Miller’s thesis quickly drew attention. A sect began to form, spreading from Miller’s home region in Eastern New York to New England and beyond. Millerism was born. The time was drawing nigh, Miller preached, when a dreadful cataclysm would occur, to be followed by

The students were the first to protest against the regime of President Viktor Yanukovych on the Maidan, the central square in Kiev, last November. These were the Ukrainians with the most to lose, the young people who unreflectively thought of themselves as Europeans and who wished for themselves a life, and a Ukrainian homeland, that were European. Many of them were politically on the left, some of them radically so. After years of negotiation and months of promises, their government, under President Yanukovych, had at the last moment failed to sign a major trade agreement with the European Union. When the

SACRAMENTO — A “right” is an “entitlement” that’s not dependent on the whims of authorities. If you have a right to “free speech,” then you can speak as you choose. The courts let the government enforce a few standards, but it wouldn’t be a “right” if government officials got to preview and restrict what you were planning to say. That’s obvious, especially when it involves activities that are widely supported. It’s hard to find Americans who don’t agree with letting individuals have the widest latitude to speak and protest. But this apparently simple concept gets muddied with rights that are

Democrats love to throw mud balls at the Koch brothers — David and Charles — because they’re successful entrepreneurs, and they’re generous with groups that promote the free-market values that enabled them to succeed. The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee even sponsors a website, StoptheKochBrothers.com. The Brothers Koch are accused of “planning a GOP takeover in 2014” by spending $27 million on political campaigns around the country. The Democratic message is that wealthy Republicans should stay out of politics.

Whatever one thinks of Project Veritas, it did not put words into Battleground Texas’ mouth. “So every time we register someone to vote we keep their name and number,” Langoria says. According to Texas election law, it is unlawful to transcribe, copy, or otherwise record a telephone number furnished on a voter registration application.

Kiev, Ukraine -- In Ukraine, neither protesters, opposition politicians nor embattled President Viktor Yanukovych had what they wanted Saturday after a week of bloodshed. Enthusiasm was muted for the peace deal brokered among them a day before by the foreign ministers of Poland, Germany and France. Hours before they signed the deal, Poland´s Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski warned them not to expect perfection. "All sides need to remember that compromise means getting less than 100%," he said in a message on Twitter. If he upholds his end of the deal, Yanukovych will lose many of his powers soon -- and his office completely --

Secretary of State John Kerry is reporting for duty in the war against climate change. In a speech in Jakarta, Indonesia, he declared climate change “another weapon of mass destruction.” Indeed, in what might be news to the 50-megaton hydrogen bomb, he declared it “perhaps the world’s most fearsome weapon of mass destruction.” If climate change does not consider itself duly warned, it has only itself to blame. John Kerry has proven himself fully capable of supporting hostilities against dangerous enemies of the United States (that he then regrets, and campaigns against — but that’s another story).

Since former Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke uttered the word "taper" in June 2013, emerging-market stocks and currencies have taken a beating. It is not clear why talk of (thus far) modest reductions in the Fed´s large-scale asset-purchase program should have had such big repercussions outside the United States. The best economic explanation is that capital has been flowing out of emerging markets in anticipation of future rises in U.S. interest rates, of which the taper is a harbinger. While plausible, that cannot be the whole story. For it is not only U.S. monetary policy that is being tapered. Even more

In a watershed moment and a huge victory over environmentalists, General Electric has agreed to stop projects that are designed solely for the purpose of carbon dioxide reductions to please those who lobby for climate change concessions. The National Center for Public Policy Research, a non-partisan, free-market, independent conservative think-tank which has been fighting GE for years because of GE’s liberal bias under CEO Jeffrey Immelt, scored a huge victory after receiving the commitment from General Electric.

The rocker said he was sorry for using “street fighter terminology of subhuman mongrel,’” and admitted "I did cross the line.” Nugent said he should have used a term such as “violator of his oath, the Constitution” instead.

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, may be the brightest light to adorn the Republican Party in many years. He knows how to make the case for conservative ideas, pointing, for example, to the contrasting fates of Detroit and Houston to illustrate the superiority of conservative policies. So it´s particularly galling to see that rather than train his fire at President Barack Obama and the liberal machine that cocoons him, Cruz has become a one-man wrecking ball against Republicans. His most recent foray into sabotaging his colleagues concerned the debt limit increase. Because Speaker John Boehner sent over a "clean" debt limit bill,

FRESNO, Calif.- Federal officials say many farmers caught in California´s drought will receive no irrigation water this year from a vast system of rivers, canals and reservoirs interlacing the state. The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation announced Friday it will continue to monitor rain and snowfall, but at this point there´s not enough water in the Central Valley Project to give water to farmers. Last year, Central Valley farmers received 20 percent of their normal allowance, and that figure is now set at zero percent. This marks the third dry year for the state, and Gov.

President Obama’s stimulus may have boosted the economy when it passed in 2009, but it’s now beginning to take a toll and will soon begin to leave the economy worse off than if it had never passed, according to a new report Friday by the Congressional Budget Office. Mr. Obama signed the stimulus into law five years ago this week, vowing it would help rescue the economy from its post-Wall Street collapse tailspin, and saying it would save millions of jobs. The CBO said it’s been successful at that, helping sustain between 700,000 and 3.6 million jobs at its peak
