In Florida, we have Republican candidates Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich being appallingly hypocritical toward the Latino/Hispanic community. They insult bilingual Latino-Americans by calling Spanish the "language of the ghetto" as Newt Gingrich does. Or, alienate them by being in favor of "English-only" voting ballots, as Romney does, but then release campaign commercials in Spanish in hopes of fooling Latino/Hispanic Americans into voting for them!! Well, Latino/Hispanics voters are much smarter than either of the Republican candidates, and they are a major driving force for good in American society today. They won't be fooled by these kind of shameless games. Republicans can't ignore, insult or otherwise discriminate against Latinos/Hispanics the majority of the time and then expect their political support come elections, just because they say a few lines in Spanish!!
That will never make up for the awful things said and done to the Latino/Hispanic community by Republican politicians. Just look to Arizona's SB-1070 bill, which basically treats Latinos/Hispanics like second-class citizens. As an American, I am offended at the disgustingly racist things said about Latinos/Hispanics Americans by Republicans. It's rare that I hear a Republican say much of anything good about our Latino/Hispanic brothers and sisters. Such bigotry is not what America is about, it's not what President Obama is about and it's not what the Democratic party is about either.
