With the right leader, the sleeping giant will be back with a vengeance, especially if BO runs this country into the abyss. I look to see many fatcat career politicians lose their mid-term elections as the grand sweep begins.

The Hispanic/Latino vote is not in Obama's back pocket. See http://acuriousamericanwonders.blogspot.com .

They are rather arrogant about this. They didn't vote Obama back in. It's their small little hands and brains, that make them want to believe that. 8% Overall, and who cares? Do you think they have reached some sort of symbolism here? They are all going to lose their job's when the Country goes into a depression again. ha ha ha, then will they feel proud? No their tails between there butt's flying down to Mexihole where they came from.

The problem is that as soon as the economy picks up, they sneak right back in, because the border is as porous as swiss cheese. Janet has seen to that. and the next fool will be no better.

Obama only won re-election by a couple of percentage points and he did it with a coalition of women, Hispanics, African-Americans, young people, gay and lesbian voters, Asian-Americans and moderate to progressive whites.

Without the support he received from any one of those groups he would have lost and Romney would be the president elect.

The fact that you don't understand the importance of any demographic group that has the potential to swing a national election by more than 1 or 2% speaks volumes as to why the republicans never saw this defeat coming.

You can't win a national election on the strength of the angry, white, male vote anymore.

Diversity rules.

Diversity rules - is that why our country is so divi ded? is that why our country is nearly bankrupt? Is that why jobs are scarce?
Is that why there are so many sick people? is that why there is so much ethnic hatred?
