Obama 3 year No Show Piss Off Hispanics



If the president is finding difficulty to go into a venue where he is pandering to Latinos, it does not matter. Obama does not care. The president understands that Latinos are rising at an amazing pace in America. Obama and the Democrats understand it, and they want to capitalize on the Latino vote. The president could cut down on his golfing and his mini-vacations. Instead, the narrative coming from the White House is to blame the Republicans. Since blaming Bush backfired in the 2010 elections, the escape goat for 2011 is the Republicans. Ironically, the Democrats lost in 2010 because they were in charge since 2006. Latinos need to wise up and look at the economy. In 3 years, Obama accomplished very little in the White House. Instead of improving the economy, the only improvement is his golf score.

(Politico) Leaders of a national Hispanic organization are criticizing President Barack Obama for skipping their annual conference for the third consecutive year after he promised as a candidate in 2008 that he would return as president.

Some members of the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials also are questioning Obama’s commitment to immigration reform, noting that deportations have increased under his watch — even as the administration intensifies its outreach for Hispanic votes. NALEO, which includes more than 6,000 Latino leaders who represent major blocs of voters in key electoral states, opens its annual conference Thursday in San Antonio.

The rift is noteworthy — and even a little puzzling — because of the administration’s aggressive push for Hispanic support ahead of 2012. Obama’s campaign team is trying to raise historically low rates of Hispanic registration and voter turnout in at least a half-dozen swing states, and one Obama adviser involved in his reelection effort recently told POLITICO, “Hispanics could very well decide this election.”
