Texas Republicans Lead on Immigration Force Obamas Hand
By Artemio Muiz
Texas Insider Report: AUSTIN Texas
Last week at the Republican Party of Texas Convention in Ft. Worth an overwhelming majority of Texas delegates from all Texas Congressional & Senatorial Districts voted to adopt new language in the immigration plank of our platform. Mass deportation was rejected and a guest worker program was brought forth as our policy proposal.
What ensued was an alarming amount of media coverage for those involved.
With this action we have fired our first shot in what is to become a war over the hearts and minds of Hispanic voters for the General Election of 2012.
Obamas weakest point his greatest fear is that
we Republicans will be able to overcome our own partys fear of engaging in this new warfare and come together to focus the Hispanic communitys attention on one simple truth he has deported more than any other President in history. Clearing away industries and companies to make room for unions will cost Obama dearly even if the mainstream media tries to cover this up.
For one week we had the initiative were armed with a new truth and were able to engage 60 of the Hispanic vote nationwide which are of Mexican descent and tend to be found in the battleground states of Florida New Mexico Colorado and Nevada.
Unfortunatley the RNC and the Romney campaign struggled with the task of going on all out offensive war and even though we gave them a week headstart to own the immigration issue they hesitated.
The lesson learned here is that our Republican national machine is not ready to engage in an all out trench grassroots war for the Hispanic vote. They still have time however to listen to the Federation of Hispanic Republicans.
One good thing did come out of all of this and that is that Obama exposed his next hand too early. In desperation and feeling the heat of a pivoting Republican Party of Texas
he brough out a new promise adding to his collection of broken ones.
If there is one thing we can know from liberals its that when they scream about something that
is where you hit them the hardest.
All across spanish media the word is out and it is having a huge impact. If Republicans across the nation can become comfortable with the Texas solution on immigration cast away mass deportation as the goal of policy formation and instead seek to secure the border and enact a strict gest
worker program the rest will come easy.
This means replacing Jan Brewer and Sheriff Joes damaged narrative with the Texas narrative one that a majority of Republicans are for and is truly conservative in nature.
- Furious over Fast & Furious
- Upset at the unemployment rates and
- Cannot stand the meager conditions of our education system.
But before they admit this we must evoke in them the real source of their anger and frustration which stems from the utter hypocrisy lies and the two-faced nature of this President.
His promise was to fix immigratin and with a 67 Hispanic vote he returned the support and paid back the Hispanic community with mass deportations. This is the huge atomic bomb of strategies for our Republican party too bad our national Republican poiltical consultant class and advisors are too stuck in their metrics and polls to understand human nature anymore.
This is a golden opportunity for Texas Republicans to step and save the day.
Our Federation of Hispanic Republicans have begun the Obama Two-Face project in Spanish http://www.obamadoscaras.com
which will be unveiled on national Spanish radio on Univision. With this project we will raise the funds to do ads robocalls pushcards billboards in the battleground state of Florida focusing entirely on the Hisapnic vote that Jeb Bush was able to win there 70 as governor.
The RNC and Romneys campaign may be either too afraid lack the knowledge or are just too slow to take the fight to the Democrats so we Texans will take it to the streets of Florida.
We ask for your help Texas. Send us to Florida ... and remember it was Texas Republicans who won the Hispanic vote for Romney.
