Mitt Romney Crosses the Line With Latinos Using Vicente Fox (trade partner) and Severing Relations with Southwestern Latinos PermanentlySaturday, October 22nd, 2011
Mitt Romney makes Jon Huntsman look like a saint…er…Joseph Smith. But what does Mitt Romney and extremist Russell Pearce have in common?
Allow me to number them:
- Both are members of the Church of Latter Day Saints (LDS), and they continue to give the Mormon church a bad image in advocating for “Operation Wetback” type of policies. Those uncompassionate views are not in alignment with what the UTAH COMPACT. In fact the Mormon Church is on the record for supporting principles of the UTAH COMPACT.
- Both have extreme ideas with their large government ideas as they support e-verify policies that put an additional burden on small businesses as it adds another level of bureaucracy.
- Both seem to have campaign workers that will manage to find Latinos to do their dirty work for them. Romney appears to use Marco Rubio. While Russell Pearce supporters take advantage of Olivia Cortes.
Mitt Romney’s continued anti-immigrant and and anti-Latino rhetoric since he ran against Senator John McCain will send the REPUBLICAN PARTY to levels of Hispanic voter support that predates the Ronald Reagan era.
Mitt Romney supports Cuban amnesty (Cuban-Americans make up 3% of the total Hispanic population pie), but he damns the rest of the Latinos and Mexican-Americans and will not even support fixing the broken immigration system. (Mexican-Americans make up almost 70% of the total Latino population pie). Since Romney cannot do basic math, he will reap what he sows and receive only 3% of the Latin vote when things come full circle. He is an “amnesty” hypocrite and apparently nobody told him that the birthers and nativists are already attacking Cuban constituents.
Do these Republican Presidential candidates not know they are hurting the Republican Party with their continued rhetoric? Start popping the popcorn so we can watch how Romney will get what he deserves for demonizing the immigrants yet taking a hypocritical stance with regard to supporting Cuban amnesty.
Mitt Romney continues to use a failed strategy that he used against Senator John McCain during the 2008 Republican Presidential Primaries. Romney’s salaciousness continues, and I remember oh too well his continued anti-immigrant tactics since before 2008. I just cannot forget how he puts a failed populist approach in demonizing a group of people. And it is people like Mitt Romney that will continue to cause Latinos to flee the Republican Party.
Mitt Romney has crossed the line and has gone beyond the point of no return with Latino community organizers and leaders.
In this linked video, Romney has the audacity to paint Mexico President Vicente Fox in a negative light. Keep in mind that Mitt Romney is not acting like a good chief in command. He is not going to be a good leader if he uses wedge issues against a good trading partner of ours, in fact, Mexico’s GDP is growing faster than the United Sates and is still a good trading partner of the United States. For Romney to use Fox in the manner he has in the video against Rick Perry is reprehensible.
Ronald Reagan’s amnesty program is the direct result of increased Latino Republican voters, but the likes of Mitt Romney, Herman Cain (advocating deadly electric fences), and Michele Bachmann’s horrific un-pro life remarks as she uses defamatory and offensive terms like “anchor babies” will cause Latinos to flee the GOP.
Both President Ronald Reagan and President George W. Bush received more than 40 percent of the Hispanic vote in their reelection campaigns. Some analysts note that a Republican needs to receive 40 percent of the Latino vote to win the presidency. In fact, for many candidates in 2010, failing to engage the Latino voter cost them the election. So those who appeal to Latino voters early stand a better chance of ending strong.
Mitt Romney will be lucky to get double digit support from Latinos as we fully intend to equate him to Russell Pearce and Joe Arpaio of Arizona. In fact, Romney made it a point to make Arpaio his chair when he ran against John McCain in 2008.
The best chances the Republican has to have some level of Hispanic support is via Newt Gingrich or Rick Perry. And, that’s the bottom line, folks.
