I love Hispanic culture and have a Hispanic sounding surname and will do quite well gracias : ) GOP gave the nation away. I expect the Dems to be greedy socialists. But the GOP joined them. Hello NIGHTMARE USA 2012. O mas bueno, Que Pasa, Amigo, LOL! :))))
Given the expectations raised by the Republican punditocracy -- that Mitt was headed for a big victory -- the jolt of defeat hit especially hard.

Now, what had seemed an orderly retreat has taken on the aspect of a rout, with Beltway Republicans calling for abandonment of fixed positions all along the line.

After Senate candidates Richard Mourdock in Indiana and Todd Akin in Missouri bollixed the question of abortion in cases of rape, Republicans are being counseled to downgrade or dump the social issues. As young people seem to support same-sex marriage, why not be good libertarians and get on board?...
