There seems to be a ground swell of minorities that are supporting the President. I understand today that the President will be endorsed by black clergy in a detroit rally, and now we have 20+ latino organizations backing the President. It seems the that the Democratic base is slowly starting realize how the Democratic party has played them over the years.

WASHINGTON, Oct. 27 /U.S. Newswire/ -- The Board of Directors of The Latino Coalition (TLC) and over twenty other Hispanic organizations and heads of organizations from across the country, today announced they will support the reelection of President George W. Bush.

"President Bush knows and understands the Hispanic community better than any other President before him," said TLC Vice Chairman Susan Alvarado. "He has appointed more Hispanics to the highest levels of government than any other President before him. He has taken the lead to address key issues that will improve the lives of Latino families all across the country, such as the No Child Left Behind education reform program, his tax cuts for working families, his proposal to reform our immigration system, his trade agreements within our hemisphere, and his efforts to assist uninsured Hispanic workers get access to affordable health insurance. But above all, he has been a strong and decisive leader on making sure that America is safe and secure, and that we win the war on terrorism."

On the other hand, the TLC Board cited the unimpressive and lackluster record of Senator John Kerry. "Throughout his career in the United States Senate, John Kerry has all but ignored the Latino community," said TLC President Robert Deposada. "In 20 years as a Senator, Kerry has not sponsored or co-sponsored any legislation to reform our immigration system, or to reform education, or to help uninsured workers get access to affordable health insurance. Also, he has been as inconsistent with his policies on trade with Latin America or on Castro's Cuba, as he has been with the War in Iraq. Clearly, this man does not have the decisiveness and the vision we need in a President, particularly at a time of war."

"His record in the U.S. Senate is so unimpressive on issues affecting Latinos, that a large number of Hispanic registered Democrats are crossing party lines to support President George W. Bush," Deposada added. "His many empty promises in the midst of a political campaign are falling on deaf ears, simply because he doesn't have the credibility in our community. We have yet to find a single high-level Hispanic appointment during his 20 years in the U.S. Senate or while he served as Massachusetts Lt. Governor. So when he talks about looking out for our community, most people realize that he cannot be effective, simply because he doesn't know or understand us."

Over 20 Hispanic organizations and the leaders of many organizations joined The Latino Coalition in endorsing the reelection of President Bush.

Of course they back Bush. Jeb is married to a Latino, and Bush has done nothing about the hundreds of thousand illegals invading the US, who take jobs from, and keep the wages low.

Kerry Has Strong Advantage Among Latino Voters
Majority of Hispanics Surveyed Disapprove of Bush's Handling of Economy and Iraq War

By Richard Morin and Dan Balz
Washington Post Staff Writers
Thursday, July 22, 2004; Page A01

Sen. John F. Kerry (D-Mass.) holds a strong lead over President Bush among the nation's Hispanic voters, with a majority rejecting the president's handling of the economy and the war in Iraq, according to a survey by The Washington Post, Univision and the Tomas Rivera Policy Institute.

At a time when Bush and Kerry are running about even among all registered voters, Kerry enjoys a 2 to 1 advantage over Bush among Latino registered voters. Hispanics give Bush lower approval ratings than the overall population does, and the poll shows that the bulk of the Latino community continues to identify with the Democratic Party.

THe Hispanic Congressional Cacus can be added to endorsing Kerry as well.
Many of the groups comprising the 20 are so small as to be insignificant.
Latinos are an extremely diverse group, and can't be lumped together like the African American voting bloc. Of key importance & dismay for Team Bush? His unrealistic sanctions & restrictions against Cuba, all for the sake of the old guard Cuban Floridians, has completely alienated the younger Cuban bloc, which typically would have voted Republican. Now, a key -in-the-bank-bloc is lost to Bush.

nice article, but a bit old especially in an election cycle. In July, Kerry was up big time. I put out an article that was dated today and you come back with a document from July. A lot has happened since then, the conventions, the debates, and other things. Blacks, Latino's, Women, and other minorities are moving towards Bush. That is why Clinton is running around in traditional strong area's for Kerry. Trying to sure up the base.

Shouldnt latinos and blacks be backing Kerry for the mere fact that he is in an interracial marriage?

Kerry in an inter racial marriage??? No way??? Mrs Heinz Kerry is as a white as snow - she is portuguese not Hispanic. Vast difference to someone who grew up as part of the priviledged people in Southern Africa ( Mozambique and South Africa).

But portuguese still is a different race than...european. I think i'm just going to leave it at that, I can see how this can turn ugly. And polarization of people by race is not what im about. Later.

I think I figured it out ...

1. The Latino Coalition
- To open the borders for completely free and open passage.

2. National Hispanic Restaurant Association
- Because they want to continue to pay 1/2 the legal minimum wage.

3. Inter-American Coalition of Physicians and Surgeons
- Because Central and South American Doctors can spel midicene.

4. Hispanic Business Roundtable
- Lower wages, no taxes, who cares about Norte Americanos!

5. Latino Peace Officers Association
- Because we want to be just as corrupt as our brothers in central and south America.

6. Hispanic Clergy Association
- For God's sake, just keep having babies! We LOVE your poqito ninos!

7. Majority of Members of the Board of Directors of the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce
- Because we actually believe that half of the United States still belongs to Mexico and should still be ruled by the Aztecas! La RaZa!

They only forgot to get M.E.C.H.A. to sign on.

Good luck if you're selling that Bush, after what's occured with the doledrums of the economy & the rampant death count of US Lstinos in the military & military casualities overall, since July to today, has closed & passed up a 50% lag in support.

"But portuguese still is a different race than...european." It is in Europe, and guess what? Portugese people are white, they are not black, red, brown, whatever. They are white. To say they are a different race is really uh, wrong. Now yes, Hispanic is a different race, but guess what? Portugese aren't Hispanic. Also, as stated the only latino's that support Bush can't vote legally for not US citizens, still will with help from Jeb in Florida, but legally? They can't.
