  •  How is he throwing Hispanics under the bus? (1+ / 0-)

    He says more border guards, charge bosses who hire illegal workers, deport illegal workers who have committed a felony. All Obama's positions. Is Obama throwing Hispanics under the bus?

    The only place he differs from the Dem party is in saying "No amnesty."  Okay, I don't like him saying that. BUt illegal immigration is increasingly a hot topic in working class districts because of the recession and the shortage of jobs. If someone who usually votes the Democratic line backs off of amnesty because of his district, in a barely-a-tinge-blue-sometimes state like Indiana, you have to cut him some slack, in my opinion.

    I see this as about jobs and the growing tensions over jobs rather than race baiting. If he is racist, I'd like to see some other evidence of it, because generally it shows up as a pattern.
