Democrats Ignore Hispanics

From New America Media:

The Democratic Party seems to have initiated a campaign to forge ties with the Hispanic community, with the goal of addressing their problems and the promise of a “wide strategy” for dealing with Latin America, reports EFE. Both initiatives were formed while President George W. Bush visited Argentina last week to attend the Summit of the Americas. New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson, the only Hispanic governor in the United States, said that Democrats should not take the Hispanic vote as a sure thing and that overconfidence in Latino support helped Democrats lose the White House in 2004. Richardson, who admitted that he might run for president in 2008, said the Hispanic vote is important in states like Nevada, Arizona and New Mexico.

Well now that the Democrats have jumped into the fray, it looks like all of President Bush's disgusting hispandering will come to naught. Nobody can out pander a Democrat.

It is just as well. It is time for the Republicans to abandon this repugnant experiment in racial group politics and return to our proven color-blind strategy strategy of reaching out to individuals who share our principals and values.

Lets leave the race based group politics for the Democrats. It will further alienate them from mainstream America because it is impossible to reconcile the competing interests of blacks, hispanics and labor unions. They will always be betraying a big portion of their base.
