Latino groups to Obama: You owe us

Latino groups to Obama: You owe Latinos the election, now pass immigration reform

By Liz Goodwin, Yahoo! News | The Ticket – 11 hrs ago

In initially off-the-record comments to the Des Moines Register's editors in October, President Barack Obama said that if he won re-election, he would owe it to Latinos.

"Should I win a second term," Obama said, "a big reason I will win a second term is because the Republican nominee and the Republican Party have so alienated the fastest-growing demographic group in the country, the Latino community."

Exit polls show the president's prediction was on the mark.

The national exit poll estimated that about 10 percent of those who voted in the presidential election identified as Hispanic, marking Latinos' highest-ever share of the electorate. Latinos backed Obama over challenger Mitt Romney a resounding 71 to 27 percent.

This isn't an unreasonable request by the Latinos. They needed someone to stand up for them, and, the president needed to expand his base...perfected strategy. Also, he reached out to another diversity which hasn't been discussed much at all...the gay community.

Where the president may have slightly fallen off if one area, he cleaned up in other areas...a simple offset. I don't know if you've seen it, but the president reached out to to the Latinos with an ad which he spoke all in Spanish. No other president has ever thought of, or done this. The GOP has their work cut out as demographics are rapidly changing everywhere. They have simply disenfranchised the two groups now MANDATORY to successfully win an election.

FWIW, I've mentioned the "common ground" phrase here at LP so many times and now, the GOP is using it in its' proper context. This kind of cooperation is what's needed. I know for a fact that "true" conservatives have a much different view of policy than Mitt Romney had...and I like real conservatives.

@speedy,

Leave him alone, buddy...he can't help it. I understand now that he's sick. Not sure where I've embarrassed myself...maybe the LHO deal? Facts and opinions there if I remember correctly. Also, if you notice, he's completely unable to address "Us" without the name calling and without aggression. in-bred...LMAO!!!
