The GOP’s effort to woo Latinos may have suffered a minor setback Thursday, thanks to Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.). Republicans have been trying to improve their standing with the fastest-growing voting bloc ever since last year's election, when Latinos overwhelmingly cast their ballots for President Obama.

Graham, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, decided that Thursday’s “mark-up” of a bipartisan immigration reform bill was a good moment to review the differences between the situation on the U.S.-Mexico border and on the U.S.-Canada border. His conclusion: Canada is nice. Mexico isn't.

“We have a Canadian border.... Why are we OK up there and not OK to the south?… Why is one a problem and the other is not? Because Canada is a place where people like to stay. They like Canada. We like Canada. We love to have them visit. They want to go home because it’s a nice place,” said Graham.“The people coming across the southern border live in hell holes. They don’t like that. They want to come here. Our problem is we can’t have everybody in the world who lives in a hell hole coming to America.”

Fortunately for Graham, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) was there to step in and assure the committee, and anyone listening to the hearing, that “while there’s poverty in Mexico and some really poor areas, it’s not a hell hole.” Moreover, he went on to suggest that Graham himself didn't mean to describe Mexico as a "hell hole."

The Republicans keep inserting their foot into their mouths..........last 2 Presidential elections prove it

What the GOP needs to do to kick it up is to do a show tune. Something like:

Have you seen the well-to-do, up and down Park Avenue
On that famous thoroughfare, with their noses in the air
High hats and Arrowed collars, white spats and lots of dollars
Spending every dime, for a wonderful time
If you're blue and you don't know where to go to
Why don't you go where fashion sits,

<strike> Puttin' on the ritz. </strike>

Bennnn gaaa ziii.

Hmm. That didn't work well at all.

Perhaps the GOP should ask for a helping hand with their fabulous encounters in the airport men's room (well, a second helping hand to write a nice advertising show tune type jingle.)

That sure to work!

See if they can toss in a Harlem Shake in there somewhere too. Everyone loves watching that! And the GOP can shake (heh) their old white guy image.

Double plus good!

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., is demanding President Obama order a complete review of his administration in the light of the IRS revealing Friday that it had targeted conservative groups that included the words
“tea party”
or “patriot”
in their tax documents during the 2012 election, reports Politico.
“I call on the White House to conduct a transparent,
government-wide review aimed at assuring the American people that
these thuggish practices
are not underway at the IRS or elsewhere in the administration against anyone, regardless of their political views,” McConnell said.

Bush never received 44% of the Latino vote. In the GOP ‘autopsy’ report released this week, the section on Hispanics optimistically cites the oft-repeated claim that George W. Bush won a record-setting 44% of the Hispanic vote in 2004 – the idea being:“We did it once, we can do it again!” But the truth is ‘Dubya’ never received that high a percentage of the Hispanic vote. No Republican ever has. In fact, many estimates place Bush’s share somewhere in the high 30’s or at an even 40% instead.

The GOP will be blamed for the enforcement mechanisms. Rubio and Rand both stress the need for a review of whether enforcement and border security is running smoothly. So, when these measures fail to live up to their expectations (inevitable), and Republican senators have to apply some brakes or tighten the border (Democrats won’t), any good will earned by the GOP goes out the window and it is once again ‘the anti-immigrant party.’

The GOP would rather lost election after election than reform immigration.

We dont need those 47%ers voting for us !!

WASHINGTON (AP)— The Internal Revenue Service is apologizing for what it acknowledges was
"inappropriate"
targeting of conservative political groups during the 2012 election to see if they were violating their tax-exempt status.
IRS agents singled out dozens of organizations for additional reviews because they included the words
"tea party"
or "patriot"
in their exemption applications,
Lois Lerner, who heads the IRS division that oversees tax-exempt groups, said Friday.
In some cases, groups were asked for lists of donors, which violates IRS policy in most cases, she said.

Former Fox News anchor Laurie Dhue spoke candidly before the Downtown Women’s Center’s fifth annual spring luncheon on Tuesday, discussing her 15-year battle with alcoholism that ended only six years ago.

During her eight-year tenure with Fox News, Dhue hosted the Fox Report‘s weekend edition and made frequent appearances on The O’Reilly Factor, Geraldo at Large, and On the Record. She left the network in 2008, one year after seeking treatment for her alcoholism.

At the luncheon, Dhue reportedly described her alcoholic years “a dark mix of blackouts, an overdose and moments of sleeping in a fetal position at her office while recovering from hangovers.”

She lamented how the more successful she became as a broadcast journalist, the worse her addiction became.“I wasn’t living life. I was merely existing. I knew how to package myself, but I couldn’t look in the mirror without shame and disgust,” she told the audience of her “double life.”

Stay tuned to Fox news for more reliable,honest and unbiased breaking news.BURRPPPPPPPPPPPPP!!

Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett, already lagging in the polls, is taking heat for his claim that the state’s unemployment rate remains higher than the national average in part because too many of his constituents are on drugs.

“There are many employers that say we’re looking for people but can’t find anyone who has passed a drug test. That’s a concern for me,” Mr. Corbett, a first-term Republican, said in an interview with PAMatters.com earlier this week.

Mr. Corbett made the comments after being questioned about his record on job creation. Despite a vibrant and growing oil and natural gas industry, Pennsylvania’s unemployment rate remains stubbornly high — 7.9 percent in March. The U.S. jobless rate is 7.6 percent.

A recent report from Arizona State University also alleged that Pennsylvania has slipped from seventh to 49th out of 50 states in job creation. The governor and other Republicans vehemently dispute those figures, but Democrats already are using them to bash Mr. Corbett

-- Corbett said there was massive voter fraud so voter ID laws were needed. No voter fraud ever shown. State government spends millions and creates new bureaucracy to solve non-existent problem.

-- Corbett said there was massive cheating by teachers on standardized tests which inflated test scores. Possible cheating found but never proven in 0.12% of schools.

-- Corbett said charter schools outperformed public schools. Federal government found Corbett cheated by using different rating system for charter schools and ordered the state to use the approved ratings scheme.

-- Corbett says that there is terrible waste in food assistance program by freeloaders and mandates new asset tests. New bureaucracy forces the elderly poor to declare value of their burial plots and uncovers less than 1% ineligible claims for assistance.

-- Corbett says that stoned workers are to blame for unemployment. Gives no examples, only hearsay urban myths.

-- Corbett, as atty gen for Pa, drags feet for years investigating Jerry Sandusky abuse cases while accepting hundreds of thousands of dollars from Second Mile board members for his campaign for governor.

I think I'm going to rent time on a super computer somewhere to see if there might be a pattern here. Nah. Couldn't be.
