Will putting Marco Rubio in the ticket fool Latinos into voting Republican? #cnn #tcot #univision #latinos #progressive

It is pretty obvious that Latinos will be very important during this upcoming elections. You would not know this from listening to Republicans say stuff like, "Spanish is the language of the ghetto" or "let's teach inner city children the value of work that they don't learn from their parents". The rejection from the Republican candidates towards Latinos is so bad that I don't think they will recover from their obviously racist attitude.

Now, they figure that if they put Marco Rubio in the ticket as a vice presidential candidate that Latinos will get all exited and will vote for the Republican party during the upcoming presidential election. As a Latino I see this as a slap on my face. They have rejected me and my people, looking down on us, and now they figure that we will be stupid enough to vote for them because they put a Latino in the ticket? What are we stupid? Besides, Marco Rubio is considered to be a traidor by many Latinos already. He will do anything to please the extreme rights quest for a pure pedigree, so aside from some Cubans in Miami, most Latinos do not like him.

I think this "token" candidate tactic will not work. What do you think?
You!

    The GOP isn't fooling anybody with an obvious move like this. They only think they are.

    By the way, most Republican conservatives (at least by my hunch) like Rubio because he's a solid conservative with good values and principles. Not because he's Hispanic.

    You see, we don't harp and dwell on race that much. That's one of the things that sets us apart from you liberals.

    For a bunch of people who claim to be more sensitive to race than anyone else, you guys sure do make a big point out of noticing and identifying people's skin color.

    So if they were to put him on the ticket it would not be to attract hispanic votes, right?

    Of course you don't think this "token candidate tactic" won't work.

    That's because to you, anyone who's a conservative Republican who's also black, Hispanic, and/or a woman is "token" to you.

    Liberals like you think that the Democrat Party is supposed to have a monopoly on women and minorities. What gave liberals the gall and audacity to presume that?

    He's going to be on the 2016 ticket, probably for president and he will win, but not because of the Hispanic vote. Most of the Hispanics I know, and I know a bunch of them, are frothing at the mouth, rabid DEMs.

    Gut feeling. I'll probably find out what my gut knows already sometime later or he may do something in the next four years that impresses me, who knows.

    No. The GOP has shot itself in the foot with our treatment of the Latin vote. It's disappointing to say the least.

    Marco Rubio is loved by most Latinos. He is a great example of a person that can do well in America. This is my winning ticket.
    Allen West and Marco Rubio

    Yes, I have extensive family, friends and neighbors who admire him. Republicans want you to succeed, Democrats want you to stay angry at those that do succeed. My best friend owns seven restaurants here and works his a$$ off. He's came here legally from Mexico twelve years ago. VIVA America!
  • AbadPerez darcie ... 2012/02/24 22:35:43

    So your friend who works very hard pays more taxes than those who live off their investments like the Republicans that want you to support their tax policy. God figure, first they want us to work hard, then they punish us for it???

    He's a republican and so am I. We are both business owners who love being successful and don't envy the rich. I applaud them if they get their money honestly. That's what America is about, opportunity. People come here from foreign countries and become wealthy because they understand we are the land of the free and hard work pays off.

    You are missing the point. Those of us who work hard pay more taxes than the rich who live off investments and do hardly any work like Romney.

    Rubio would be doing himself a great disservice by sitting as a VP under a clown like West. I don't agree with Rubio's politics, but as far as Republicans go, he's one of the better ones. Were he running as Romney's VP, Obama would have reason to worry, that's for sure.

    Allen West is going to be our first black president someday. He is a very honorable man. When he speaks the truth it does upset liberals.

    He's a disgraced military torturer that should have been booted instead of allowed to pay a fine and resign to keep his pension.

    Exactly. He likes to torture which is why he is a foreman. He can't wait to get a chance to inflict pain on black people.

    No, It's true. I don't care if he's a friggin rainbow. I judge by character not color and Allen West has good character. Obama used his black half to deceive Americans. He never lived in a poor area, never had to really work or go to war. He's a faux POTUS. West is the real deal.

    You say you judge by character, but your words say otherwise. So maybe that's the sound of you backtracking, I don't know, but your argument about Obama somehow using his "black side" to deceive americans is not only covertly bigoted, but it's one of the most assinine things aside from his citizenship argument I've heard anyone make about him.

    Go on, keep digging that hole you're in.

    It wouldn't be so transparently obvious if they didn't spend so much time trying to argue that their sentiments aren't racially motivated.

    It reminds me of that joke Wanda Sykes made many years ago about tiger woods... "when he's winning he's half-black or mixed, but when he's losing the media calls him black. And when he got caught up with all those women all of a sudden he was the blackest golfer in the history of the game"
    LOL
