    Does the GOP believe Hispanic values are different than the ones held by Blacks, Asians and Native Americans?  Call me a cynic, but whenever Republicans start talking about values, I hear divide and conquer.
    Fortunately, most of them will be unable to contain or repress their racism and xenophobia.

    Just as the selection of token front faces like Steele, or the Tea Party touting Kain did not stop the endless stream of dogwhistles,  disrespect and open racism, nothing will cover-up how they really feel about Latinos - no matter how many Marco Rubio's they parade.

      I think you're right about the xenophobia getting the best of them.  The racists within the party will never be able to pull of a con-job of this magnitude.  Sooner or later they'll show their true colors.
