Latinos for Obama sign waving from crowd
Sorry dudes. Ann Romney knows better what's good for you.
Dear Ann Romney, please condescend to us Latinos about what's best for us!
[Latinos] are mistaken if they think they are going to be better off with Barack Obama as their president. There really is only one way for prosperity, for small business, and that is, this is the simplest way I can say this: If Mitt Romney wins, America wins.”
Please lecture us some more!
You’d better really look at your future and figure out who’s going to be the guy that’s going to make it better for you and your children, and there is only one answer.
It's refreshing outsourcing our brains to you, rich out-of-touch lady! What else should we think?
It really is a message that would resonate well if they could just get past some of their biases that have been there from the Democratic machines that have made us look like we don’t care about this community.
Huh! I though it was the rampant racism and xenophobia in your party. Instead, it's the Democratic machines, whatever that is. Got it! All that's left is a fake effort to try and connect. Why don't you give that a shot?
She stressed her immigrant roots, mentioning her grandfather who was a Welsh coalminer, aiming to connect with the Latino audience.

“I know what it’s like to be the daughter of immigrants,” she said.

You know what it's like to live in fear of being pulled over for being brown? Of being deported to a country you never lived in? Were you denied the ability to pursue an education or serve your nation in uniform? Did you have to struggle with an unfamiliar language and culture? Did you have to deal with people disrespecting yours?

No? Then I guess maybe you don't know what it's like to be an immigrant, or the daughter of one. I don't remember an entire political party focused on forcing Welsh immigrants to "self-deport" while denying their children an education. But please, rich lady, keep telling struggling Latino (and Asian) immigrants what's best for them!

Because clearly, you think we're too stupid to figure it out for ourselves.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
