    That's the part that I find offensive, and can't believe others don't seem to. They're too bent out of shape on the term 'wetback' to see the true offense stated by the Congressman.

    Yes, he is the only one that hire illegals in America. This is why is is a FACT that if we removed 100% of the illegals the economy would go in to a free fall. Now, try to dispute that FACT.
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    I cant dispute it. America has always relied on slaver labor (or near slave labor) to drive its economy.

    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.

    I do not see a candidate that could win 40% of any minority in the Republican party right now.

    You don't think Rubio could pull 40%.....if he was the GOP nominee? I think you would see some of the same as to what you saw with Obama.

    Well, I don't either at the moment, but I didn't think GW Bush could either. It turns out that all you need to do is be able to speak Spanish and kiss their ass a little bit, and you got their vote.

    Immigration could be a problem for him. He recently changed his opinion but I'm not sure that will help him. Time will tell I guess.

    Well, I figure some of how the Blacks voted for Obama would come into play the same way for Hispanics.....if they were to se Rubio as the GOP nominee for President.
