Recriminations in NYC

It's blame-assignment time in the Big Apple:

A senior adviser to Fernando Ferrer, the defeated Democratic mayoral nominee, said yesterday that nationally prominent Democrats who deserted Mr. Ferrer's candidacy had done a disservice not only to him, but also to the party's efforts to woo Hispanic voters.

The abandonment of Mr. Ferrer, the party's first Hispanic mayoral nominee, was "an absolute failure to recognize a constituency coming of age in New York City," said the adviser, Roberto Ramirez.

"It's their failure and they will have to live with it," he said.

Once again we see that racial and ethnic group politics is a losing strategy. Republicans should knock off the hispandering and just continue, as we always have, to insist that anybody who shares our values is welcome in our party. Lets leave the pandering for the Democrats. We can't beat them at that game but in the long run they will find it impossible to reconcile the demands of their open borders hispanic constituency with their poor black constituency and with their blue collar labor constituency. Group politics is a losing strategy which is why we are winning and they are losing.
