The Republican Hispanic Challenge

It's always seemed a little odd to me that Hispanics are considered a separate "racial" group, even though their origins are, of course, on the European continent. The Spanish and Portuguese "settled" Central and South America and much of the American West. Why on Earth would these people be afforded "special" status in such things as college entry, job placement, etc.? The problem with Hispanics in this country is that the immigrants today largely come from Leftist, big-government countries. It's what these people know.

Although Mitt Romney took flak for his statement that he lost the election because President Obama bestowed “gifts” on key parts of the electorate, what he said is basically true.

We’re stuck in a deadly spiral where economic growth is retarded because the economy is larded with enormous and ever-increasing government spending and debt. Yet, more and more Americans want the lard.

President Obama got re-elected by promising to continue to serve it up.

Romney’s failure, and the failure of the Republican Party, is not that Obama is pulling this off, but that they can’t get their act together to explain...
