    The Republicans are total idiots if they think passing a amnesty will get them the Hispanic vote. That will just create more Democratic voters. Hispanics support big government and that's because so many Hispanics use government programs. U.S.-born Hispanic households in California use welfare programs at twice the rate of native-born non-Hispanic households. And that is because nearly one-quarter of all Hispanics are poor in California, compared to a little over one-tenth of non-Hispanics.

    Wait wait wait...
    ...The GOP is actually reconsidering its position on minority votes - in this case, Hispanics?

    I am well and truly shocked. Is this the change in the GOP that's been needed since Dubya?

    The nearly continuous attack on Hispanics and immigrants by the TEA PARTY and the GOP's cavalcade of racists KNOW NOTHINGS, pretty much assured Obama a big win from that group of voters.

    Attacking the DREAM ACT was a truly bad idea for the GOP, but one that, thanks to the prejudices of the GOP base, they really had almost no choice but to oppose.

    The GOP made the bet that the GOP could find a winning coalition with the fiscal conservatives, the uber-religious and the overt Whites racists.

    They missed by about 3,000,000 votes.

    The demograpic of this nation are changing and the GOP as yet hasn't figured out how to play in this new America.


    I have very little doubt that the RNC will be doing some serious soul searching about where the party is headed and who will be on board with it.

    Either the GOP becomes more Hispanic and women friendly or it will continue to lose the big elections.

    The GOP needs a helluva lot more than that. When the house gave Grover Norquist a pledge to not raise taxes a dime they sealed their fate too. Neither party has ever cut spending a goodam dime but the Democrats at least had enough sense to tax folks enough to pay for theirs. Beginning with Reagan's tax cuts for the wealthy and continuing through Bush's cuts in 2001 and 2003 the Republicans have amassed a debt so big that the annual interest on it is half a trillion dollars a year. The president's reelection even though the nation's economy is still reeling from the Bush years proves that the electorate has wised up to their rich man's bullshit. The GOP is about to become the GAP......Grand Ancient Party.

    Why not hand the country over to Mexico? You do know that the Mexicans coming over here are mostly socialist? Good bye republican party if they're legalized!

    Funny how blacks and other races can be as racist as they please but they get a free Pass. It's all about destroy the white man and his culture.

    Talk about open hate and racism.

    Considering the GOP has done nothing but vilify hispanics for the last few decades, why would hispanics suddenly become republican?
