Why should republicans care what "Hispanic" people want? They don't vote republican. Republicans should just continue the fight to keep all those "brown" people from coming here. They don't want them here, they should stop kidding everyone and just say it..." America is not nearly as white as it used to be, we have to change that."

With all these Hispanic people illegally invading America it is hard to remember that black people should be feared and oppressed too.

Protect us from the Brown hoarde oh great and powerful GOP.

What's the GOP got to do with it? They hire more Mexicans than democrats. Who do you think ran all the small construction companies that hired Mexicans before the democrats destroyed the home building industry? Republican small business owners. That's who. Ungrateful jerk. Just collect your small pittance from the democrats now that they have taken your livelihoods away. Good luck with that.

The ONLY ethnic group where Romney lead was white men. "Republicans have won the white vote in every presidential election since 1964, and that continued Tuesday with Romney beating Obama by 20 points, 59 percent to 39 percent, according to exit polls. Obama won 80 percent of the minority vote, which, besides Latinos, included African Americans, 13 percent of turnout, the same as 2008, and Asian-Americans, who were 3 percent of the vote, up a point from the last election. President Barack Obama on Tuesday won a whopping 71% of the Latino vote, up from 67% in 2008. By contrast, John Kerry only managed to get about 53% of the Latino vote in 2004 when he lost in his bid to unseat President George W. Bush, according to publicly available exit polls. In Colorado, he captured three-quarters of Hispanic voters, up from 61 percent in 2008. He also improved his Hispanic performance in Florida, a result that included dominance of the heavily Puerto Rican swing precincts around Orlando and the election of a Cuban American Democrat to Congress, symbolizing the end of the GOPís decades-long lock on that community. In 2012, the share of the Latino vote rose to a record high 10%, a number thatís doubled in the past 16 years. President Obama won about 8.4 million Latino votes, using a rough calculation based on exit-poll data. Romney captured no more than 3.44 million votes. In Iowa and New Hampshire, states without big minority populations, Obama won by gaining the support of nearly six in 10 women. Obama won 71% of the Asian-American vote. From the exit polls, President Obamaís support from men slipped a few points from 49% four years ago, but women supported the president over Romney by 55% to 44%."

"Based on Census Bureau estimates, the nationís white population, which was 85 percent in 1960 and 63 percent in 2011, will drop to minority status, about 47 percent, in 2050. Latino population, only 3.5 percent in 1960 and 17 percent last year, is projected to rise to 29 percent by then, while Asian-Americans, less than one percent 52 years ago and 5 percent last year, is seen as rising to 9 percent in 2050.

The caucus's are ranked by the shade of the skin. The darker you are, the more racial the caucus.

that explains in perfectly...I guess the highest ranking caucus would be the blue gum caucus...I think John Lewis D-GA is the senior member of that....he's made a pretty good career of one days activity...he was on that bridge in Selma one day in 1963, and hasn't done a days work since then.

Whites can't have the same as blacks and hispanics...that would be racist! No we can't have a White Caucus or anything else including any white pride, if you do then you are racist and apparently only whites can be racist according to the blacks and hispanics (the most racist people you'll ever meet).

The dumber the state the more likely they are a red state. On the other hand, Obama won Florida which has only 23% college graduates.
"According to a state-by-state breakdown by the Census Bureau, here are the top 15 states with the best college completion rates as of 2010. All of them have at least 43 percent of its young residents holding a college degree, but only two states have over 50 percent. D.C., which was included in the study, beat out all of the states with an impressive 68.8 percent.
Blue - Massachusetts 54.3% of the population
Red - North Dakota 50.8% of the population
Blue - Minnesota 49.8% of the population
Blue - New York 49.6% of the population 47.2% of the population
Blue - New Jersey 47.2% of the population
Blue - New Hampshire 46.0% of the population
Blue - Connecticut 45.9% of the population
Blue - Iowa 45.5% of the population
Blue - Maryland 45.5% of the population
Blue- llinois 45.3% of the population
Blue - Virginia 44.6% of the population
Blue - Vermont 44.5% of the population
Red - Nebraska 44.2% of the population
Blue - Pennsylvania 43.9% of the population"
So out of the fifteen states with the highest percentages of college graduates, twelve voted for Obama. And as for the nonsense some have proposed about liberalism being "cyclical", republicans have gotten the majority of the white vote in every presidential race since 1964.

ratliff, I know some college grads that can't find their way home after dark. And todays colleges, specially the historically black ones, award degrees that are about equal to a high school diploma 30-40 years ago. Your point is moot. I've noticed most college grads are snobs too.

Immigration overhaul is also known as ....

Giving ILLEGAL Mexicans more rights than American citizens.

Keeping ILLEGAL Mexicans all on welfare (35+ MILLION of them).

Providing ILLEGAL Mexicans with 'affirmative action' protection, such as what the blacks receive.
Illiteracy and incompetency is rewarded.

MERRY CHRISTMAS

It is quite a joke really. We have a group of people in Washington DC that have spent us into oblivion, that are now asking us to trust them in fixing the problem they created and asking us to bite the bullet while they go on 20 day vacations to Hawaii and spend four million dollars more of our tax money. I hope China approve the loan for Obama's newest vacation.

Do you have any idea what would happen to you, as an American, if you illegally entered any other country? Let's just say you won't be welcomed with open arms, and given welfare, healthcare, and a job.
