  •  My dad was born in Mexico of American parents. (2+ / 0-)

    Interesting how he fantasizes, when among other wealthy power players, about how much easier it would be for him to campaign as a Latino.

    Yet, given a chance to identify with Latinos before an audience of 60 million, he can't quite bring himself to just say, "My dad was born in Mexico," even if it probably could have fooled some voters into thinking that he's part-Latino. He had to get that "of American parents" in there. ("Don't worry, I'm still white! As American as anybody!") Because I guess he doesn't really want people thinking that he has any Latino blood in him, after all.
