President Obama’s Very Simple Plan to Win Latino Voters

Huge support and turnout from Latino voters will be a key part of President Obama’s reelection campaign. What must he do to try to win somebody’s favor by pleasing him or her, especially in order to gain an advantage again? Nothing, really. In his mind, he can just show some clips of Republicans talking about immigration and pretty much seal things up. Or at least according to the latest from Gawker.

Obama was meeting with Hispanic journalists the other day when they asked him about his strategy. And, in a somewhat candid moment, he told them:

“I don’t think it requires us to go negative in the sense of us running a bunch of ads that are false, or character assassinations,” Obama said, as reported by Univision.”It will be based on facts.”

“We may just run clips of the Republican debates verbatim,” he added. “We won’t even comment on them, we’ll just run those in a loop on Univision and Telemundo, and people can make up their own minds.”

The quote that still sticks out to me so far is that of Mitt Romney, addressing Rick Perry: “You put in place a magnet to draw illegals into the state.” That stuff is hilarious. This is a line of attack from the likely nominee, supposedly a moderate technocrat: “You put in place a magnet to draw illegals into the state.” Yeah, just play it over and over.

The following are comments from those who have read the article:

Roberto offered:

Ok, I’m a Latino. Can someone please tell me why I should vote
for Obama again? Seriously. The dream act he was a no show.

Mr. C  offered:

On deporting undocumented people, his administration has served
over some of the biggest deportations. This hurts the Latino community and
often replaces Latinos who want to stay under the radar with citizens who are
desperate for money who in some situations are addicted to drugs.

Editor’s note: The Obama administration has deported more illegal aliens that any administration to date.
