Why Hispanics Don’t Vote for Republicans
The call for Republicans to discard their opposition to immigration amnesty will grow deafening in the wake of President Obama’s victory. Hispanics supported Obama by a margin of nearly 75 percent to 25 percent, and may have provided important margins in some swing states. If only Republicans relented on their Neanderthal views regarding the immigration rule of law, the message will run, they would release the inner Republican waiting to emerge in the Hispanic population.

"Bonehead' Boehner, RINO Hannity go soft on invaders
Well, that was fast. -- Just two days after President Barack Obama won a second term, boosted by more than 70 percent of the Latino vote, some Republicans are striking a new tone on illegal immigration. -- Conservative Fox News and radio host Sean Hannity said Thursday that his views on immigration have "evolved." Hannity continued...

95% of blacks say Feds should provide them jobs
Providing an 11th hour clue to how blacks will vote on the presidential stage, 95 percent of African Americans believe that the federal government should be the nation's jobs creator, according to a last-minute battleground poll. -- The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People released their poll on Election Day to show that jobs, and blacks' preference for a "national jobs program," is the number one issue. Next, but way down the list of importance, was education at 23 percent and health care at 22 percent.

Amnesty again’ wrong answer for GOP in 2016

Mitt Romney’s loss has the establishment GOP — including in Georgia — scratching its head, wringing its hands and chattering semi-coherently with advice about how to retake the White House from the socialists. The “conservative” consternation comes with a predictable, disproven and suicidal scheme as a solution: Another amnesty for illegals. The promised result? “More of the Hispanic vote.”

One was hiding in a backyard of a residence, the others were hiding in a wash. After about an hour, the search was called off with no other leads...

Comrade O may get GOP help in destroying the United States
President Obama has said an immigration deal may be get-able after the election because Republicans would want to improve their position with Hispanic voters -- and there are already signs this may be happening. -- Two prominent conservatives -- radio host Sean Hannity and columnist Charles Krauthammer -- are advocating an immigration bill that would include both tighter border security and a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants who are already here -- i.e., something close to Obama's position.

Santorum caving in to invaders
Former presidential candidate Rick Santorum charged Thursday that President Barack Obama and the Democratic Party held off on immigration reform so they could capitalize politically during the election. -- “It did not get done, in my opinion, by this president because he wanted this as an issue,” Santorum said on Fox News’s “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren.” “I don’t believe the Democrats are at all sincere about doing anything and compromising with Republicans on immigration.”

Neocon windbag Rice spouts off on invaders
Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is the latest Republican to recommend changes to the party, saying on Friday that the GOP needs to appeal to a broader portion of the electorate moving forward. -- Rice said on CBS’s This Morning that many key GOP issues are broadly popular – fiscal responsibility and a strong national defense, for instance – but the Party is losing “important segments of the electorate” because it has not adjusted to changing demographics...

Hannity finally gets some press
Despite nearly always leading in cable news ratings during the 9 p.m. hour, Fox News’Sean Hannity gets very little attention from press outside of conservative media. Every now and again a guest on his show says something that makes headlines but Hannity himself, as a personality, is largely ignored. -- The reason: He’s predictable. Hannity’s loyal audience loves it but there’s nothing newsworthy about saying the same thing over and over (Rev. Wright, Bill Ayers, “Obama media,” etc.)... [Related item]

The Case of the Missing White Voters
One of the more intriguing narratives for election 2012 was proposed by political scientist Brendan Nyhan fairly early on: that it was "Bizarro 2004." The parallels to that year certainly were eerie: An incumbent adored by his base but with middling approval ratings nationally faces off against an uncharismatic, wishy-washy official from Massachusetts. The race is tight during the summer until the president breaks open a significant lead after his convention. Then, after a tepid first debate for the incumbent, the contest tightens, bringing the opposition tantalizingly close to a win, but not quite close enough.

Washington Times Editorial
Gun ban back on Obama’s agenda
That didn’t take long. Less than a day after President Obama’s re-election, the administration breathed new life into the United Nations‘ previously comatose treaty regulating guns. -- Last July, the U.N. General Assembly began formal discussion of the Arms Trade Treaty, which seeks to establish “common international standards for the import, export and transfer of conventional arms.” Talks on the controversial agreement were put on indefinite hiatus after the United States requested an extension to the time allotted to negotiate the agreement...
