McCain woos Hispanics and launches Spanish web site

May 6th, 2008 . by TexasFred

PHOENIX (Reuters) - John McCain reached out to Hispanic voters on Monday as he sought to win over a constituency that has moved away from his Republican Party but could prove key in swing states in a close U.S. presidential election in November.

The Arizona senator’s campaign launched a Spanish language Web site to mark the Mexican Cinco de Mayo festival and McCain told reporters that “everything about our Hispanic voters is tailor-made to the Republican message.”

“I am confident that I will do very well,” he said. “I know their patriotism, I know the respect for the family, the advocacy for pro-life, I know the small business aspect of our Hispanic voters.”
Hispanic support for the Republican Party has ebbed in recent months, following a bruising battle over illegal immigration.

Republican lawmakers sank a comprehensive immigration bill last June that would have created a path to citizenship for many of the 12 million mostly Hispanic illegal immigrants living in the shadows in the United States.

McCain’s support for a broad immigration overhaul that would also have put some illegal workers on a path toward U.S. citizenship angered many conservatives in his party. He later said Congress should focus on border security first.

McCain woos Hispanics and launches Spanish web site

Another little tidbit from the original story:

A report by the Pew Hispanic Center in December found that 57 percent of Hispanic registered voters called themselves Democrats, while just 23 percent considered themselves Republican.

That’s pretty funny actually, McCain calls himself a Republican and a conservative while nearly ALL true Conservatives call McCain a RINO, he’s a lot closer to the Dems than he is to the few REAL Republicans that are still out there, and he’s nowhere near being what I consider a Conservative, his near Dem status should make his slightly attractive to a few Dem voters, they’ll fall for McCain’s pandering lies as quickly as the McCainiacs did…

And to a certain McCainiac in Massachusetts: before you start blasting me in email again, read this very closely because the next time you come at me and accuse me of being a Clinton supporter I will consider your hostile accusations a declaration of war and will respond accordingly…

I do NOT support Hillary you illiterate wretch, if you were in possession of ANY reading comprehension at all, that would be glaringly apparent, I think she is evil incarnate, but I also feel that Obama is even worse, and McCain isn’t much better, he just happens to claim the names Republican and conservative, of which he is, in truth, neither…

I am a hard core supporter of None of the Above, but get this through your thick McCainiac skull, I am NOT sitting this election out, I will be voting, but here’s exactly how it’s going to play out for me…

If November comes down to a vote between McCain and Clinton, I will vote my conscience and vote for None of the Above, and I will write in MY choice, a Tancredo/Hunter ticket, and the chips can fall where they may simply because there is NO discernable difference between McCain and Clinton other than one is a Dem and the other is Dem Lite…

If it comes down to a choice between a real gun grabbing RINO, McCain, and that lying piece of shit, closet racist, stealth muzzie, asshole son of a bitch, Obama, I WILL hold my nose and vote for McCain, a vote that will be registered as done under protest, I absolutely abhor the idea of voting for the lesser of 2 evils, all you get is evil, and it appears that evil is all that’s being offered in this election cycle…

I do hope that this clears up exactly where I stand on the concept of None of the Above, I know that this is something that goes over a lot of heads, but most of those heads are pretty dense, and if you think that I am talking about YOU, then you just might be right…

    Hispanics hate Hussein. They haven’t voted for him in any great number. And there are more Hispanic voters than Black voters. They aren’t one single group either. The Hispanics in Texas, Arizona, New Mexico and California are predominantly from Mexico. But the Hispanics from Florida are from Cuba. While most Hispanics vote Democrat, Florida Hispanics are Republicans. And with the debacle that the Democrats have done with Florida and Michigan, it looks like McCain will win both states. Obama isn’t liked in either one.

    If it’s Obama vs. McCain and McCain wins, we can hope and pray that he will only serve one term.

    Actually, my hope is that he picks an outstanding VP running mate, gets elected, serves a day or 2 and falls out with a debilitating stroke or heart attack and said outstanding VP becomes our POTUS…

    Hey, it could happen…

    Being stuck here in Kansas for the week I am reminded of an appropriate solution to this Presidential election — now if I could only find some ruby red slippers…..

    McCain is a pandering, doddering old fool.

    If one-legged whores were a large enough group, he would be setting up a web page to get their votes, too.

    Though it may seem like a small, insignificant and pandering this is surely just one of the many ways Mcain and his campaign is insinuating itself through america in the hope that they can garner enough voters before the spectacle of Obama and Clinton clawing at each other finishes and the democrats actually start campaigning. Who knows the strategy just might work…

    McCain figures we have to vote for him because a Hillary or Obama presidency is too awful to imagine. He won’t go after Conservatives for that reason.

    I really think we are hosed, EITHER way, McCain Obama or Hillary… we knew it, we couldn’t stop it, we are going to have to deal with it….
    I don’t think I can vote for McCain under any circumstance, I say that now, but he might just give me enough of a smoke enema between now and election day to make me change my mind…DOUBTFUL very doubtful, I have been given the ultimate in smoke enema’s by the master GWB.
    Never again.

    HA! Well I guess you did see it as you beat me to the punch, LOL!

    I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Mike Huckabee for staying in the race just long enough to screw Romney out of a chance to beat McCain.

    Great job huckster…..
