Romney, Obama make pitches to Latinos at Disney World this week

by George Bennett | June 19th, 2012

Mitt Romney speaks Thursday and President Obama on Friday to the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials annual conference in Lake Buena Vista.

Also slated to address the conference: former Gov. Jeb Bush on Thursday, Sen. Marco Rubio and Gov. Rick Scott on Friday and Sen. Bill Nelson on Saturday.

While the conference, billed as “The Latino Political Convention,” has been in the works for months, it coincides with Obama’s recent order to halt deportations of more than 800,000 young illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. before they were 16, have lived here at least five years without a criminal record and earned a high school diploma or served in the military.

Obama is also stepping up his appeal to Hispanic voters this week with the release of a Spanish-language ad in Florida, Nevada and Colorado with ads touting the federal health care bill featuring Cristina Saralegui, host of The Cristina Show on Univision.

    The right wingers have short memories. In 1985 Reagan gave amnesty to more than 3 million so called “illegals.” Obama is making it possible for 800,000 children of “illegals” to be able to stay if they qualify. As usual a double standard exists. If the GOP does it than it is OK. Or maybe this is another example of the new racism in America. Don’t use the N word any more. Just complain about everything Obama does and in some cases doesn’t do. Just make up stuff. Obama has plenty of faults. But the alternative is Romney and this is the best the GOP can do. Romney is a bigger joke than Obama. What a choice!

    Sorry,but these people are not Latinos. Latinos means Latins. The Latins come from Italy and not from Spain and the Latin Language.Culture comes from Italy and not from Spain. These people are Ibero-Indians in terms of Culture. Their races are a mixing of multiple races.
    Furthermore, Latin America doesn’t mean Latino and Latino is not a Race nor an Ethnicity.
    As for President Obama he has used and abused his Constitutional powers many times and the Republicans have done nothing to stop him so his latest move of granting reprieve to hundreds of thousands of mostly Spanish-speaking illegal aliens is just a continuation of his defiance of our Constitution and Laws.
    Mitt Romney is not helping himself. From what we see so far, he is turning up to be another John McCain fiasco. I wish that the Republicans has somebody else to run in this election.Obama will have to be removed from office in November because, if not stopped, this reckless man will totally destroy America.

    And yes, Obama may destroy your false concept of America, but for those of us living in the REAL, ACTUAL United States of America, we literally can’t wait to move forward without you after all the damage you right wing clowns have done to this once-great country.

    FOUR MORE YEARS, MR. PRESIDENT!

    Hey Jose’, your post is offensive and should have been deleted. Evidently, it’s difficult for you to engage in a respectful discussion without recurring to street talk. I forgive you in a way because you just can’t help it,it’s cultural,yes cultural.

    It’s a Jungle out there. Obama had his day. Millions of Whites voted for him but it turns out that he has hatred towards Whites and makes negative comments about his White mother in his book ” Dreams from my Father”.

    Now, am I satisfied with Romney? Not fully because he is another John McCain,more or less, but with him as President we can turn the tide back when it comes to legal and illegal third world immigration/invasion.The wrong people are being allowed into this Country. It must stop.

    What Romney should do is to stop the pandering and yes it’s pandering and instead concentrate on consolidating the White vote. Why the White vote? Because that’s all what he needs to win.
    If Romney can get those Whites who are still in the wrong “Democratic” Party away from that Party then he can win outright, then restore Constitutional government and most of all STOP the invasion and close the border forever.

    Let them emigrate to Africa or to the Middle East or to Asia to India or to “Non-Latin” America”. Nations?

    Hopefully, by now you’ve learned that:

    1-The Latinos, (Latins) come from Italy and not from Spain.

    2- The Latin Language (Lingua Latina) comes from Italy and not from Spain.

    3-The Latin Culture comes from Italy and not from Spain.

    4-Latin America is a name invented by the French (Amerique Latine)when they had territories there. Why they called “Amerique Latine?” because the languages spoken there, French,Spanish and Portuguese come from the Latin Language of Roman Italy and they wanted to distinguish themselves from the North Anglo-Saxon,Protestant America.

    5-Latin America doesn’t mean “Latino” and Latino is not a Race or an Ethnicity.
