    I know speaking to many of my Ecuadorian and Brasilian friends that they're not at all happy with Obama.

    Infact, they're downright pissed because while the GOoPers talk alot of bullshit, they LOOOOOOVVVVEE the cheap labor.  Obama OTOH has been cracking down HARD and deporting ALOT of people, including a friend of mine.  

    I seriously don't get Obama (then again maybe I do and just don't want to come to terms with it), he bends over backwards to appease the GOoPers and in the end pisses off his base.  His tough on immigration stance if it continues with no reform will do serious harm to the Dem party with the Latinos.  They don't mind the cracking down by ICE but they want to know that the laws will be changed.  Other than token gestures Obama and the Dems haven't done SQUAT.

    The only thing saving Dems at this point is that the GOoPers are racist fuckers.  The Latinos at this point won't EVER vote for them, but they're not pissed enough to hold their nose and vote Dem either (except in the case of Sharron Angle and Tom Tancredo) so they stay home.
