Feb 26, 2013 Full story: Real Clear Politics 100

The Republican Party's problems with Latino voters are well documented, but its poor performance with Asian-Americans should be giving the party even greater pause.

its just that Obama is better. Obama speaks from the heart, and stays in the truth. That means a lot to Asian people culturally.

Sure lower taxes are important, but living as an emotionally logical human being is even more important than money.

Why is this surprising? Asians have been voting Democrat since 2000, from what I've read.

I am glad Obama is giving you a warm feeling because Asian-Americans will be a prime source of revenue for Obama's ever expanding welfare state.

Asians have forgotten what leaders like Mao (who also gave them a warm fuzzy feeling) did for them.

The Quote of the Decade:
"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America 's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America 's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that,'the buck stops here.' Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better."

I'm not a Democrat, nor do I want to be--but one thing I notice is when Republicons have a problem with anyone that is not agreeing to their Party is a Liberal, or DEM...Screw both!

Absolutely. It is all about dignity as a human being. Not about earning something or jumping through hoops to get something with which one is born.

Then the Democrats are lucky to have so many right wing racists to choose from.

It's true, and Obama said later on it was a political vote. No one is pristine in politics. Still, Obama is cleaner than most.

How about all those good Democrats in LA shooting each other? Sounds like a race war going on.

Nice thing about the Democrats is they send their racists to Congress or put them on MSNBC.

You creeps just don't get it. Why does someone's hard earned money, "dignity" have to be given up for your lazy azzz. Obama is a flippin joke who's only qualification is his affirmative action black half. IF you ever do aspire to make a decent living actually working you might tend to want to keep some of the proceeds for yourself and family instead of waiting for the next handout. Somebody has to pull the cart parasites can have thier fill and vent thier racist toilet training. Obama is a taker, not a maker. How's the job market for you college kids and young sages these days.

One time I caught Hannity playing a best of Barack tape on how often he changed positions to suit the need of the time. He's quite the political break dancer that Mr. "Clean" is.

No one is pristine. Har dee har har. Be careful acknowledgeing your saviour's contradictions. You might find yourself thinking and reasoning his actions and words. It's a slippery slope to seeing that POS for what he is.

Dood, you hate Obama because he is half black, and you hate the idea of black people and mexican people getting welfare from your taxes.

Guess what, Asians are the least on welfare, and our taxes subsidize WHITES, blacks, and mexicans. All you guys.

So it makes no difference to Asians, since ALL YOU GUYS live off our taxes. Get it?

The worst leaches on the system are $500K pensions for rubber stamping business permits. What talent do you need for that?

And if you look at all the biggest government pensions in the US, they are ALL to white people.

I'd rather feed 1000 black and mexican babies than give a white guy who had no real talent other than politics, a $500K a year pension.
