Latino,Vote Obama,if you care about immigration and are hispanic,in spanish or in english Vote Obama!!!
VOTE OBAMA, it is written the same way whether in english or in spanish,but it is crucial that hispanic voters support Obama in big numbers on the upcoming elec
There are currently two very distinct and opposite positions on immigration,immigration reform the dream act,and the immigrant community as a whole.Romney's and the republican party position is, deport every person who is currently an illegal alien,or make their life so miserable,pursue them relentlessly ,harass them in such a way that their permanence in the country becomes a living hell and they'll self deport.The democrat's position is that a comprehensive immigration reform is necessary ,and a path to legalization,residence status and ultimately citizenship should be made available to those illegal aliens who meet certain requirements,pay a fine or penalty,and follow the requisites outlined in the eventual reform.
Can the republican candidate pivot to the left on immigration?I don't think so,but he will try to bamboozle hispanic voters,using Marco Rubio as a collaborato
With the recent measure taken by president Obama to grant de facto amnesty to illegal aliens who were brought by their parents when they were under the age of seventeen years old he has made it obvious how much of a problem the immigration issue presents for Romney and the republicans,which has been reported they have privately acknowledged.So much so that Romney hasn't emphatically condemned as he would have just a few weeks ago,but instead sending out his spokespeople , such as Marco Rubio,Mc Cain,Graham, to say that this measure doesn't really accomplish anything in the way of immigration reform, and it only breaks the law and is politically motivated to pander to hispanics.this is very hypocritical since Romney has already publicly stated that he would even veto the dream act which is the measure that has the most bipartisan support even today when the republican party is the party of deportation.But he does understand that with only about twenty four percent of the hispanic vote in his favor defeating Obama is an uphill battle ,and so far his only antidote seems to be to depress the hispanic vote by making it more difficult for minorities to vote and to demoralize them reminding them that Obama didn't provide the full fledged amnesty they expected.
In the end the election will be decided by what the economy looks like in october , but strategically, whether it's apparent or not the president is making all
Although Romney is currently enjoying the benefits of the negative economic news of the past few weeks, all experts agree the economy will not spiral downward in the near future , and is more likely to continue the slow recovery path it has had for the past couple of years, which is not what a challenger needs in order to defeat an incumbent president who has the advantage of the office he holds.Romney while having been able to bring the party together in supporting him...finally, the support is rather mild in many ways both from groups and individuals who say "well I guess we'll have to support this guy".But his discourse has been sketchy and all over the place as he has been scrambling to battle the democrats' effort to define him and responding to the president's actions in all different fronts.
It is true as it has been reported that republicans now believe that Romney can win and democrats believe that Obama can lose.
But in the end it wil be a close race, and although it will come down to the economy, all the minor variables will also have an impact on the final result,not only in the presidential election but also in controlling the house of representatives and the senate and as we have seen in the last few years gridlock is not only possible but likely due to the political climate prevalent in Washington DC .
