Honestly, in my observations, if the Republicans had been smart politically, they’d continued with Bush’s more inclusive approach and rhetoric on immigration. Instead it’s been replaced with Romney who talks about self-deportation and hires the writer of the controversial Arizona law as his immigration adviser. Latino voters aren’t stupid. They see the GOP’s rhetoric to them and they see the Dems as being more inclusive. You can’t just put out Marco Rubio and say look at us, we’re not bigots see. I thought Rick Perry by and large was an idiot from my observations of him in the primaries but if there’s one thing where he struck me as more smart than Mitt Romney, it was on immigration.
