Lord have mercy but is this white man (trash) clueless? Just go to the island and insult a hipanics, I love it!

This low-class and low-brow white man (who thinks he's whiter than the average WASP) LOL is trying to "out white" them and out privildge them. He doesn't have the good sense to know that he's been tolerated and engaged but will never, ever, be accepted by the WASP population, that is until he has to run against a Black man, lol. Of course, then these racists and illiterates will choose him over the diaper wearing Mormon, lol. Republican white racists, you've got to love this dilemna, lol. What to choose, seems God has forsaken the heartless demons.

I wonder why? LOL!

If Puerto Ricans want to find out how Italians feel about Puerto Ricans just go to any urban area where the two races are yoked together, lol. Of course, Italian men being men, will not pass up a chica, but they definitely think Puerto Ricans are beneath them (eventhough they share culteral characteristics, lol) They'll enjoy the women, while hating the men.

Anyone remember Westside Story? LOL.

Go, Ricky, pimp for the Pope, you racist, sob.

The Republican party is in tatters. We've had dumb arse Bush, and dumber Palin, Newt, Santorum (a true prick) and Romney (decent, but a money grubber of a strange and apostate religion) I mean, it's a Democrat's dream! LOL

Too freaking much! If I wasn't reading this dumb sob going to an island that typically votes REPUBLICAN with insults to an Hispanic, I wouldn't believe it! I mean, it's the same thing when they were pushing Cain, by having him and them, insult BLACKS! How the hell do you get people to vote for you by insulting them, would someone please tell me? These freaking people cannot be that clueless, can they? LMBAO!

When you say "These people"...Are you referring to Republicans or Puerto Ricans?

Amazing! They go to their island and insult one of their most important person to accomplish something and expect the islanders to give them their support. I am the white man, and I like you all, but your supreme court justice is not to my liking because she doesn't agree with my policies? So, like your Island ancestors, trust me, the White Gods, lol. That is until they found out that the White Spaniards proved they weren't God's when Taiano Indians dropped one of their lazy asses and the white God did not rise after three days. That's when the Taino Indians went on a rampage and killed every white spaniard they could find.

Puerto Ricans would do well to remember the first devils that came to their island misrepresenting themselves, but at least these two are telling you upfront that your "hija" is not one of them!

Have some respect and don't be Uncle Toms, Puerto Ricans, I know you all have more pride than that! Send those two racist gringos packing!

No? I think not! Anyway, the current Census has "changed" Puerto Ricans to White, Hispanic and Black, Hispanics and furthermore, you racist sob, my husband is Puerto Rican and my children are half, so I have more right to be on this thread than your white, racist, arse, so go F yourself and go find the Angelo Forum for you nosey, sobs.

Wow, they both stepped on the toes of Puerto Ricans everywhere. Could it be that Romney's dislike of Sotomayor deep within is that she is a Latina from "obscure" Puerto Rico? What is his beef with her? It is obvious, as it has been throughout its history with the U.S., that PR is the nation's step child to be ignored except when campaigning for President. Both of these guys probably knew "zilch" about the island before they arrived. "Puerto Rico?" "Where is that?"

But, what did Romney said (about Sonia) that that everyone's "up in arms" and tearing their clothes off.

The local radio stations (pro PPD) are burning their waves against Romney....

Earlier in the afternoon, Romney refused to back off his criticism of Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor.

Minutes after arriving in San Juan, Romney faced questions about his charge that Sotomayor is an activist judge. Sotomayor, who is of Puerto Rican heritage, is widely supported by local Democrats and Republicans.

But Romney isn't budging from his opposition to her 2009 nomination to the nation's highest court.

He said he disagrees with her judicial philosophy and would have voted against her nomination had he been serving in the Senate at the time. Romney added that he'd be happy to support a Puerto Rican justice, but only one who shares his philosophy.

Ahhhh!

It goes back to when everyone against her nomination was calling her "an activist"...

Puerto Ricans treated Sotomayor like they did a soccer game with about as much thought, well they would have taken the soccer game far more seriously.

I see an interesting side of you. Somebody is looking pretty racist.

Outside of a few beaches, what does Puerto Rico have to offer the United States?

Well, when Sonia happens to "be in the neighborhood"...we all go wild (in fact, wilder than when Ms. López, who happens to have a penthouse in San Juan and has made investments in the island, is moving her "cucu" on Condado's streets.

When it comes to Supreme Court justices, something more than being popular counts.

As I said, Hispanics never looked beyond her name.

Using the standards they applied, German- Americans should have been thrilled if Adolph Hitler were nominated, that he being German (Austrian actually) was enough.

In other words, Puerto Rico has a few nice beaches.

It's a poor island that would have been a second Cuba if the United States didn't keep it a float.
