Hispanics in the Arizona primary

How exactly does the Republican candidate who talks the toughest against illegal immigration get the highest share of Hispanic votes in the Arizona primary? I suspect that Hispanics are not quite as race-faithful as liberals wish they were.  Not to worry, folks: they'll vote for you anyway because that's what perennially poor people do.

Numbers USA indicates that Santorum is the toughest of the presidential candidates on immigration.

B.B.

Yes, but it is true that Romney talks the toughest. Robert Hume

Romney and Santorum are both quite good on immigration. What a change from 2008 (McCain), 2004 (Bush) and 2000 (Bush), when the GOP nominee sounded like a crazed leftist on this topic.

The current open borders lunatic, Gingrich, seems to be going nowhere.

Getting a Mormon into the White House would be quite a coup. The open borders lobby has nothing to fear from Romney and they know it.

Was there supposed to be some sort of rational thought hidden in there somewhere? You don't have the foggiest idea what the open borders lobby knows or doesn't know.

STUDY: Ron Paul Never Attacked Romney Once During 20 Debates, But Attacked Romney’s Rivals 39 Times

In recent days, attention has focused on the unusual relationship between Ron Paul and Mitt Romney, who are purportedly competing against each other for the Republican presidential nomination. The New York Times reported recently that Romney has “worked to cultivate” a friendship with Paul. The candidates talk on the phone frequently. And when Paul’s “campaign jet broke down last year,” Romney “offered his jet to take them home to Texas.”

Rick Santorum has directly accused Paul and Romney of working together, noting “their commercials look a lot alike, and so do their attacks.” A review by ThinkProgress of the 20 GOP debates suggests Santorum might be onto something.

While Paul has freely attacked Romney’s top rivals, he has never once attacked Romney:

This is particularly striking given that Paul and Romney do not agree on virtually any policy positions.

These are Hispanic Republicans, not all Hispanics.

"Pew estimates that 18 percent of Arizona's registered voters are Hispanic. [Fox]

Only 8% of voters in the Republican primary were Hispanic, according to the AP exit poll.

When you find yourself approvingly citing thinkprogress, you should hear a little alarm bell going off in the back of your head telling you "maybe you've jumped the shark on this one".

The facts as summarized by thinkprogress suggests Santorum's accusation has merit. Do you disagree?

I first came across a reference to thinkprogress's analysis on another site, but thought it best to reference the original source here.

Since yesterday many other sites have picked it up.

Sometimes a picture is more effective. Note the candidate next to Romney on the graphic. Some have suggested that she's was run as controlled opposition by the open borders lobby.

The Mormon church is one of the most aggressive and effective players in the open borders lobby. Romeny acts in their interests. Vote accordingly, I say.

I don't give a damn, to be honest with you. If I learned that Romney and Paul were close, I'd have a higher opinion of Romney. And Paul, to an extent.

Politics is politics. Primaries are like a big game of Risk. Politicians make alliances with other politicians against other politicians all the time. It's currently in Romney's best interest that the anti-Romnsy vote be split as many ways as possible. I'm sure he's be disappointed if Paul, or Gingrich, dropped out.

You think that Bachmann was run by the "open borders lobby"?

You started off sounding like a nutjob, and you only reinforce that impression more and more as you keep commenting.

No, they are not. I can think of several much more aggressive and effective players in the open borders lobby - off the top of my head, the US chamber of commerce, the Democratic party, unions, the Catholic church, and various Protestant denominations. As usual you don't know what you are talking about.

I think you are confusing visible with aggressive and effective. In the long run, duplicity has been the most effective weapon of the open borders lobby.

The pdf available on this page from the Center for Immigration Studies offers a good overview.

Have a nice day.

Once again you expose your stupidity. The most effective weapon of the open borders lobby has been money. "Duplicity" is a not a weapon at all, it's a tactic. And it's not a tactic which the open borders lobby has employed. Whatever its other failings, it does not bother to hide what it is about.


Have a nice day.

Have a brain implant. You badly need one.

Well, let's see ....

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (also known as the LDS or Mormon Church) regards Christ as head of the church and considers members to be Christians.1 Unlike many religious organizations that clearly and candidly stake out their positions on illegal immigration, however, the LDS Church officially takes no position on this highly divisive issue. This pleases neither those who oppose illegal immigration nor those who support it.



To the untrained eye this might make the LDS seem far preferable to a lot of other groups which are not split on immigration but which vocally cheerlead for amnesty, such as the Catholic church. To the criminally insane, however, it is a sign that ..... the Mormons are sneaky!
