This past weekend, Mitt Romney did what every politician does when they campaign in South Florida, take advantage of our Cuban American hospitality and give us empty rhetoric in return.
But for some Cuban and Cuban-American voters, the candidates' immigration positions don't dim their appeal. Neither does the tone of the debate, which many consider insulting to the whole community.
"Honestly, I [registered] Republican because my family, who has been here for years, is. The truth is, I haven't heard anything positive from these candidates. All they do is fling dirt at one another," Hernandez said.
They can try to run from it like a vampire from a cross, but the Republican contenders haven't been able to hide from having to talk about immigration.
Shame on Romney for lying to Florida seniors as he cheers on Paul Ryan's plan to take away their health care and retirement security.

If he hangs in until the bitter end, Gingrich could find his pride going before his final fall.
If any card in the tarot deck would predict an upset, it would be the Tower card, and it came up in both Gingrich's and Romney's tarot card readings about the Florida primary.
While most politicians tell the truth most of the time and toss in a bit of truth-stretching, with a few lies here and there, these two lie all the time. Their entire candidacies are built on the re-writing of history.
Romney turned the tables on Gingrich in Florida through some smart tactical moves -- including an extraordinary early voting effort -- and an all-out blitz on Gingrich. They have been dropping pianos on Newt for 10 days and it has politically destroyed him.
As we wend our way through the Republican primary season, at times predicting the outcome of a single state's race is very hard to do. At other times, it is actually pretty easy. Florida looks to be one of the latter.
As voters discover the truth about the kind of business Romney practiced, the candidate is finding out that coming to town now means bad news for his popularity. The more voters learn about him, the less they like him. It's not hard to see why.
The ascension of Ron Paul into mainstream political consciousness and the continuing relevance of the 'Occupy' movement represent fundamental challenges to the political establishment.
Congressman Rohrabacher's baseless imagery of our schools being overthrown by the undocumented was either an amazing display of ignorance. Yet, the demagoguery went unchallenged. Why?
