I see.

Something seems odd.

You know.......This just occurred to me. I'm wondering if the PPD leadership (whomever they are these days..LOL) have basically concluded that they are "going to sit this one out".

It appears that way to me. That is evident.

Perhaps, they are operating on the premise. "We are going to lose all votes". Governorship, party and status.

Why bother spending precious financial and political capital now when we are clearly not in the position to do so?.

They figure that nothing is going happen without Washington's approval ,in regards, to the critical status issue. So they are sitting it out.

Nevertheless, it is still a tremendous gamble on their part if it is so.

Thoughts?.

If they are putting all their eggs in Washington's basket, they better have a plan B.

We have to remember that Washington has been saying for decades, it is up to you, guys (referring to island Puerto Ricans) to petition for statehood.

The Populares probably think that because they are all cozy with Obama that he will veto statehood as a favor to them. They obviously never planned for President Willard 'Mitt' Romney ...

BTW guess who is campaigning for Obama in Florida this weekend ... none other than Rafael Hernandez Colony himself.

I applaud Mayaguez mayor, because one thing has nothing to do with the other, if Rivera Shatz helped him, he deserved to be recognized. And we all know who will be the next candidate for governor by PNP...
Shatz is what we call "Rosellista" he doesnt care much Fortuño we all know that...

I'm a Rosellista, myself...but Fortuño and his administration has done a great job.

One thing current estadistas have learn is to embrace all Puerto Ricans, regardless if these are Socialists or populares.

Obama, for starters, became the first President to call us a colony.

True, however the PPD thinks he is the greatest thing since sliced bread. They talk of him as if he is the savior that will stop the expected funding cuts.

LOL

Well, according to experts (including some Democrats) tonight, Romney "sliced" the lights out of him....LOL

And besides, what did the guy do, share some Cuban sandwich (and the small version, if I may add) while running to some fund raiser?

Last night, I spent it trying to put in perspective the creation of the ELA, but in a national context. To my surprise, without going in much depth, one of my conclusions is-how isolated we, island Puerto Ricans, have been kept by the PDP from our national reality (in terms of the true impact the national economy has on perceptions here, in Puerto Rico).

It was an eyeopener to conclude the way Johnson's Great Society program assested a superb blow to any sovereign aspiration populares were harboring. In fact, as laws were being passed in Washington, the foundation of the NPP seemed the logical step to take, here.

All in all, what we are witnessing (as a nation) now, began to take shape back in the early 60's (back then, we were yet to feel the full impact, which came some 49 years later).

I invite to peek on the "ELA, 1950's miracle" thread and read some of it.

Well would you rather risk AGP in the governor's office?

I don't like Mitt Romney ... but I like him more than Barack Obama.

Obama was revealed as the empty suit in an empty chair who is lost without his teleprompter. Willard cleaned the floor with Barry. President Mitt Romney will take office next January.

One way the PPD has hurt the people is by discouraging the teaching of English. Now when Juan moves to Florida or New York he is at a disadvantage.

It was just a passing thought.

They are really not on top of their game. Astonishingly so.

You were correct all along, Jorge.

What we are seeing is historic.

The constructive dismantling of the ELA.

Good point, nowadays most Puerto Ricans moving to the mainland are moving to Florida. The Dominicans have taken over NYC anyways. Most of them illegally entered the US & went to NYC, pushed out the Puerto Ricans and now they are trying to push out the Blacks.

Puerto Ricans are showing up all over this great nation ... there is even a Puerto Rican born Republican US Congressman from Idaho - Raul Labrador.
