As I have pointed out before, last month unemployment among Hispanics surpassed 11%; now there’s New Romney ad targets Hispanic voters, blasts economy as ‘dismal’
“The Obama campaign recently released a Spanish-language web ad asserting that ‘we’re on the right path.’ Mitt Romney disagrees and believes that rising unemployment and more Hispanics in poverty is not the “right path” for our country. America can do better and, with Mitt Romney as president, we will,” the Romney campaign said in a statement.
A Spanish-language version of the web ad will also be released.
Meanwhile, Axelrod’s terrified of Rubio,
I think it would be an insult to the Hispanic community to choose Senator Rubio if the thinks that that is somehow—if Governor Romney thinks that’s sort of a get-out-of-jail-free card for all of the things and the positions that he’s taken.
As John Hinderaker said,
Axelrod’s theory is that the Republicans aren’t allowed to nominate a Hispanic because they don’t have pro-Hispanic policies like the Democrats. That only makes sense if you assume that Hispanics don’t care about such mundane things as jobs, economic growth, the national debt, national defense, and so on. Actually, I think it is Axelrod who is insulting Hispanic Americans, but his real meaning comes through loud and clear: for God’s sake, don’t choose Marco Rubio!
Axelrod patronizingly thinks that all Hispanics care about is amnesty.
