Latino Head of RNC Resigns in Frustration

Posted: 10/22/2007 by Floyd in Labels:

The Republican Party's highest-ranking Latino official abruptly resigned Friday, marking the latest casualty in the GOP's bitter internal fight over immigration and dealing another setback to President Bush's years-long effort to court Latino voters. The ploy to get the Latino vote evaporated fast, as the latest defector is Mel Martinez and head of the Latino RNC, Martinez is a Cuban-born Senator from Florida.

Like his hero McKinley, he alone was the true visionary. Everyone else looked at the political landscape and saw a nation at rough parity. Rove looked at the same thing and saw an emerging Republican majority.

The last link I got off Mother Jones also and it puts in perspective of how Karl Rove came to seeing just about whatever Karl Rove seemed to see, Karl's goal was to bring in the Latino vote for the GOP but it did not quite get materialized like a lot of Karl's other wishes that seemed to vanish like vapor.

Rove's Dream


  1. I will really be shocked if the Republicans won 50% of the Hose and the office of President in the next election.

    Me also Let's Talk, seems as though the old goose is done but I never count my chicks before they hatch.

    LOL, seriously I would be very surprized to see that happen. Instead of changing course they still keep going toward the far right instead of the middle? I just don't get it.
