Romney's Immigration Plan: He's Not "Overly Concerned" With Fixing Our Broken System

Kristian Ramos | Posted 08.25.2012 | Latino Voices

Romney's speech at the National Association of Latino Elected Official's (NALEO) conference had been billed as an opportunity for a candidate, who is struggling to connect with Hispanic voters, to re-orient his message to this core voting block. He did not.

Obama the Underdog

Robert Kuttner | Posted 08.24.2012 | Politics
Robert Kuttner

Obama's move flummoxed the Republican Party into a week of rare silence, left Romney to speak gibberish to the NALEO meeting, and intensified support for Obama among Latinos without an offsetting backlash among Anglos. Obama's reluctant and belated acceptance of same-sex marriage accomplished something similar. Here public opinion remains closely divided, but is unmistakably moving in the direction of greater tolerance, especially among independent voters. Once again, the Republican capture by the hard right is revealed, and Romney is put in a usefully awkward position. The question, however, is why Obama waited so long, and why he doesn't pursue other areas where the Republican position is far to the right of public opinion. The answer seems to be a combination of Obama's own innate caution, and the obsessively tactical, "test-everything" orientation of his campaign strategists.

Miguel Ferrer | Posted 12.23.2011 | Latino Voices
