Who cares? Only a black Al Gore like Obama panders to special interests.

There you go again. Defining ALL Hispanics as nothing more than racist Chicanos. Not a good idea. It may work in a broken hole like California but insulting, diminishing, and pigeon holing Hispanic American families as leftwing zombie voters won't serve the Dems long term

Hispanics will, and have, voted in mass for Republican political candidates.

Republicans win votes across the spectrum when they run on a platform that focuses on things like like gun rights, deficit reduction, and cracking down on crime.

That's what Reagan did. You never heard Reagan talking (on least not on stage in front of the public) about stupid crap like illegal immigration, gay marriage, or abortion. He had his points of view, but it wasn't his focus.

The problem in the last election was that idiots like Michele Bachmann, Sarah Palin, and Donald Trump kept running interferance and making the team look bad.

Good Points. Sadly, the Media is obsessed with the Social Engineering stuff at the direct expense of the serious issues which continue to diminish our Countries future.

The policial Right and Left are destroying America.

We need political leadership who can focus on the big picture issues like: the national debt, entitlement reform, tax reform, foreign policy, and energy.

Even when the Right and Left attempt address those bigger issues, it's always within the context of some social engineering agenda, and they end up gridlocked and spinning their wheels.

GOP won't have to work hard. Unemployment will keep increasing, more people on food stamps, gun control, amnesty, President signing orders to protect big corporations (Monsanto) and fast tracking Saudis through airport security after they were the ones who committed 9-11.

GOP just needs to sit back, when a fool is digging themselves into a hole, you should just step back and give him room.

BTW, the Hispanic vote was 10% of the total vote and the GOP got 3% of that.

The old GOP that's losing their constituents will pander and lie to uneducated illegals for votes but the young and newly elected GOP, Rubio, Paul, etc. Will change the dynamic. Not fodder or pandering, but appealing to decent productive young repubs, looking for realistic Government. The poor will always vote for dems, but the new repub's can change everything and hopefully in doing so, make people accountable for their choices. They'll expect people to obey the laws, and stop allowing voters to cheat. This has always been by design, I believe. It did work in the past but no job's, no accountability, low wages will make people think differently and hopefully vote differently. We can only pray....

Young Cubans in Florida are NOT voting Republican. They are sickof that shit.

Besides, even the Castros have evolved a bit in recent years.

The strong swing of Cuban-American voters to President Obama and Democrats was one of the most interesting and probably one of the most significant shifts in voting patterns in 2012.

For Republicans, that shift to Democrats is cause for panic and denial. After all, Cuban-Americans are just about the only group of minority voters who have ever backed Republicans. If even their taste for the GOP is waning, then Republicans are in worse shape than previously thought.

If Cuban Americans no longer wish a chance at the American Dream for their children they should embrace Obama and Castro style American Govt.
