GOP leaders: Anti-immigration stance hurts party

CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) — Republican speakers at a conference on reaching Hispanic voters urged the party to tone down its rhetoric on immigration and to take up comprehensive reform in Congress, warning that the party could lose ground with the country’s increasingly diverse citizenry if it doesn’t.

“(Hispanics) will be the swing voters as they are today in the swing states. If you want to elect a center-right president of the United States, it seems to me you should be concerned about places like New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, Florida, Texas, places where but for the Hispanic vote, elections are won and lost,” said former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who co-chaired the conference organized by the new Hispanic Leadership Network.

But those gathered at the South Florida conference seemed split over whether the GOP’s lack of Hispanic support is simply because of the party’s tone, or if there’s a more substantive problem with the GOP’s policies.

“If you think it’s about tone, you have missed the point,” independent columnist Ruben Navarette told the audience of more than 300 at the Biltmore Hotel in the Miami suburb of Coral Gables. Other speakers blamed a liberal bias in the media and a few extreme voices in the party.

GOP leaders: Anti-immigration stance hurts party

I have a message for the GOP and the RINO wusses that are the so-called leaders of the GOP; not one voice in the Conservative world is saying NO IMMIGRATION.

Pay very close attention and get ready to hear the TRUTH, the Conservatives of this nation are standing, and loudly protesting against ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION, and if you dimwitted morons had a brain to call your own, you would know that!

Lincoln Diaz-Balart, the Florida Republican who retired from Congress this year and has long championed immigration reform, suggested Republicans need to work their tone and message.

“The decibels have to be lower,” he said. “It doesn’t’ matter how good are policy positions are, if we are perceived as being anti-immigrant, we cannot be the majority party.”

Here we go with that ‘Can’t we all just get along?’ BS. The rhetoric of those too afraid to fight for what is RIGHT.

These are the same people that are crying about ratcheting back on the rhetoric concerning the threats being made in the wake of the Tucson shootings. There seems to be a mindset in the GOP that if we all just get along, everything will be just peachy.

And it WILL be just peachy too, for the left, the Dems, the bleeding heart libbers and the weak minded FOOLS of the GOP that are nothing but RINOs. Yeah, RINOs, Republicans In Name Only, in other words, gutless, useless, no-good, Democrat Lite, RINOs.

And if the Conservatives of America stand for this crap, we are ALL done for!

    MM26 — I have been making that assertion since long before the elections of 2004, I was told, by MANY, that it isn’t possible, it can’t happen and that we need to repair the GOP…

    What needs to be done to the GOP is called *extinction*, the GOP hasn’t been worth a plug nickle for far too long now, they truly are nothing more than Dem Lite, and I’m starting to think we can lose the *Lite* part…

  3. No one, except the electorate, has much clued into the Message that was broadcast “in the clear” on November 2nd.

    The words here are important: not NO immigration. NO to ILLEGAL immigration. Secure the borders first. South and north. Then work on employers. Remove illegals from entitlements. Of any stripe. Of any color. That, in itself, will save MILLIONS and MILLIONS in border states and untold BILLIONS in toto.

    We don’t need a third party. We need a SECOND PARTY … A CONSERVATIVE PARTY! The GOP can become the third party they seem so set on becoming.

    I want a political party willing to get down in the dirt and fight for what is right. Unfortunately, the GOP is not that party. Plus, I am of the opinion that the Tea Party hit its high-water mark on November 2nd, of last year, and is now fizzling out. So, we conservatives will soon have no effective political vehicle for our energy.

    When Bush was in the White House and Republicans controlled Congress, they tried this kumbaya can we all get along crap and they got the snot beat out of them by Democrats. Voters gave Republicans another chance and it seems one thing they’ve learned from recent history is that they didn’t learn a thing.

    For these jerkwads to equate illegal immigration with my grandparents who came here legally through Ellis Island is an insult to them and me. These fools just witnessed one of the biggest political upsets in history and they’re too blind to see the reason why.

    I want to make sure I understand this Fred — not what is being “said,” but what is being “intended.”

    If we do not pander to people who don’t even have a right to be here; if we do not try to enlist people who have shown nothing but a flagrant disregard for immigration law; if we do not, in short, do what the most liberal of the RAZA crowd wants we’re going to lose elections?

    No, they are as wrong as can be on that score. What we need is voter ID. That’s not racist; it’s just common sense.

    Keep your powder dry,

    I expected these weasels to pull something like this. I just didn’t expect it so soon.

  8. The RNC has outlived it’s usefulness. As long as they are dependent on rich elitist RINOs contributing, we have no options IMHO.

    Excellent post Fred, absolutely spot on.
