Step up, Gov. Romney

Jun 3, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Lowell Sun

Mitt Romney passed up a golden opportunity recently to take a meaningful step toward making inroads with the Latino community by proving he's not harshly anti-immigrant. He blew it.

"Standing up to the far right by condemning such belittling language would have earned Romney some respect from Latinos who believe that both he and the Republican Party hate them. And it would have demonstrated the kind of leadership all voters crave.?

As if!!! Latinos/hispanics, whatever, are about 10-16% of eligible votes! The last election was unusual for them as far as voter turnout, they usually are no shows. The obam fooled 'em, they thought they would get blanket amnesty withing a few months after his election.

Oh, why am I tellling you this, the politicians will find out in November! They forgot about the rest of us...

Lets not pretend that the Latino vote means nothing. In the upcoming neck to neck presidential election, the 10-20% Latino vote can make or break Romney.

Why do latinos support illegal aliens?

Is it because they are racist and only look out for their own kind?

Disgusting!

Screw them. This is why they bring hate upon themselves.

EXACTLY...if anything the latinos blew their chance to prove they are law abiding individuals who SUPPORT LEGAL IMMIGRATION. We are continiously reminded that the majority of latinos support breaking the immigration laws of this nation.AMERICA has an ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT problem and a latino population that supports ILLEGALS because a majority of those here ILLEGALLY are latino.We know that the latinos are a bunch of racist bastards.This is not the united states of latinos,...it is the United States of AMERICA and we AMERICANS have had enough of this pro ILLEGAL bullshit.Out of 316 million people they make up about 51 million..that means 265 million of us ARE NOT LATINO!!!!

Your assessment is close to correct, but of that 265 million voters that are not Latino how many have a clue of what they're voting for. A huge % of American voters are illiterate when it cones down to understanding the platform of different candidates.
That was more than obvious during the last presidential election.

Technically this isn't racist. However, many of their relatives are illegals. They believe the law should be bent for them. Sorry,the law was bent for them too many times. Starting with the 1986 amnesty. At last count, 7 million illegals have already received amnesty. Now,we are expected to grant,yet another,amnesty to what could be 30 million more illegals.. If this happens, watch as wages take a tumble. Jobs will go to the person who is willing to work for the least amount of money. Experience and knowledge wont mean a dang thing.

Unfortunatly many voters have no clue as to what they are voting for...that is a shame. If we actually had an educated electorate we would not have OBLUNDER and we would have had a better choice than McCain

This is exactly what most ignorant people would say. Don't generalize. Most USA Latinos do not and will not support illegal immigration. I am Latino and like many more Latinos will never
support the invasion of our country. Your comments are the type of comments that divide our nation.

Bottom line is that Romney is better for Hispanics. Obama will only result in more betrayal and economic misery for Hispanics.

When poll after poll shows that 76% of "latinos" support amnesty for ILLEGALS it is nearly impossible to come to any other conclusion about latinos.If the pools are wrong then the latinos should be more vocal about their opposition. If they are right then that tells us that 76% of latinos believe it is allright to ignore the law.

Romney will help latinos if the aren't in poverty-they will be and if they are in poverty they will stay there.
