Los Desperados, Los Republicanos

Is this for real? Seriously, is this for real?

Wednesday morning, a series of speakers assailed President Barack Obama for failing to advance immigration reform, damaging the economy by restricting free enterprise and embracing liberal positions on social issues such as same-sex marriage.

“It’s time to say, ‘Enough with the lies, you failed us on immigration reform, and you are the most anti-immigrant president in the history of the United States,’” Alfonso Aguilar, executive director of the Latino Partnership for Conservative Principles, said to loud applause from the group gathered at the Las Vegas Latin Chamber of Commerce.

Nevada Hispanics is an initiative of American Principles in Action, an affiliate of American Principles Project, a conservative organization founded by Princeton University professor Robert George. Aguilar’s Latino Partnership for Conservative Principles also is affiliated with American Principles Project.

WTF??!! So Obama is now "anti-immigrant"... Because Congress can't pass comprehensive immigration reform? Oh, and have they forgotten who's fought humane immigration reform all this time? Do they even really care?

After all, they're backing this guy who really seems to like this guy.

And this is far from an "isolated incident". Rather, Mitt Romney has a long history of embracing extreme anti-immigrant xenophobia. And now, some ridiculous teabagger astroturf outfit "Hispanic group" is trying to prop up Mittens by calling President Obama "anti-immigrant"?

Is this some sick joke? Or have Republicans really become this desperate?

  1. In Nevada, because even the ultra conservative Cubans are pro-Obama, the Republicans will settle for whatever they can shave off of his base. Just like Republicans and the LGBT community and that horrible Gay Patriot crapfest. Same smell, different rotting fish.
