    No I didn't, and I wasn't being funny. I thought you were saying that I have no respect for the Bush family, and I don't. If you mean that you think I have no respect for Hispanic people, then you're dead wrong. I love Hispanic people and their culture, and most importantly, their food is top-notch.

    That is so, however that was the general term for illegal alien in my youth. Very common usage from the man on the street to the halls of government. Even folks with no animosity towards illegals.

    Still, foolish for a politician to not keep up with the lingo.

    It still dont change the fact that most right wingers who are up in arms about illegals, rarely if at all point the finger at the those that hire the illegals and actually create the freaking market that brings the illegals up to the US.

    What is it with you with your "Republicans are all bad and Democrats are good" thinking? Dude, Republicans and Democrats alike are all douchebags who cater to big business and don't give a **** about the middle class, equally.

    So saying that all you have to do is kiss Hispanic's asses and you have their vote is not disrespectful?

    The wetback thing just demonstrates a coarseness of character that should be just unacceptable in modern society, and I think it is. Now when you combine the whole RW persona, like the astoundingly dumb leadership like Palin, the outright intolerance of Muslims and others, the mindless rants about the POTUS, the birth certificate thing, calling anyone that opposes them names like low information voters, their nominee talking about 47% of the nation being freeloaders. guys like Aiken and Mourdoch, and the list goes on and on and on..well I dont think, if they stick to their scthick, they will be a concern at all before long. Let them childishly call people names and the rest of them defend them. Keeps their minds off the important stuff.

    No, it's not disrespectful, it's true. GW Bush, who otherwise has no other common bond with the typical Hispanic voter (besides living in the same country), knows how to speak Spanish, and he used that to his advantage, and the Hispanic voters liked that. He came across as "one of them", or at least as someone who understands them, and they voted for him.

    Stating the facts man. I am not a democrat. actually you are probably right, I am just used to being on all conservobot boards so I only have to make half the arguement. Calling people names regardless is pretty classless not matter who does it.

    No, they liked that bush*, unlike the rest of the rightwing, supported a path to citizenship (ie amnesty)
