For now Romney is riding high on his recent Republican nomination but he continues to ignore the real issues hurting our economy such as American confidence and creating more private sector jobs.
What’s this? You say Mitt Romney is a great private sector job creator? What kind of great jobs are we talking about? Maybe Romney will have his “people” (Bane Capital), purchase the United States and bail us out by doing nothing for the working class people.
According to recent polls, Americans have no confidence in Romney as a potential president on many levels. The big game changer for Romney I’d like to highlight, shows a plummeting Latino approval rate. Latinos have also rejected Mitt Romney’s immigration policy so now he’s scrambling to make up for years of Republican immigration threats.
According to the recent NBC/ The Wall Street Journal poll, Romney’s current approval rating with Latino Americans settled at 14%. That’s A 50% lower approval rating than Bush (’06) and McCain (’08). The declining trend of Republican Latinos in the polls will dramatically effect 2012 elections. And to further the pain, I would like to reiterate Mitt Romney’s words regarding the Latino community. ”Without the Latino vote the Republican party’s in serious trouble.”
Mitt Romney will continue to provide fantastic talking points for bloggers and pundits everywhere. He’s a threat for conservatives as a former moderate peacock and unskilled, off the cuff public speaker. And as for Romney’s countless political gaffs, all campaign promises can and will be used against him in a presidential election year. It’s just politics.
The former head of Bain Capital will continue to twist in the wind as he scrambles for Latino votes. Even with Marco Rubio, helping out by updating republican immigration policies, Romney will continue to to have problems convincing us that the Latino agenda will not get swept under the rug… again. Yes, this has happened before.
Obama and House Democrats in 2009, pushed aside Latino legislation for Universal Health Care legislation, Latinos responded in the voting booths and Health Care Legislation approval ratings plummeted at the same time. Republicans also won The Congressional House back in 2010 and a very stunned looking Barrack Obama called the several republican wins in Congress and states all over; “a shellacking” on the democratic party. And yes there was no disputing that.
In my opinion, we will never have real Immigration Reform until we stop posting “Help wanted” signs just behind “No crossing” signs in the southern border.
In a Republican Primary debate a few months ago, a frustrated Mitt Romney, was asked about hiring illegal aliens to work on his California home and Romney fired back by saying: ” I’m running for president for petes-sake, I can’t have illegals.” This was the gaff heard around the world in every media format.
Romney is right, he can’t have illegals, but when those so called illegals become United States citizens, Romney will also not have Latino support and votes.
