Huge support and turnout from Latino voters will be a key part of President Obama's reelection campaign. What must he do to ingratiate himself, again? Nothing, really. In his mind, he can just show some clips of Republicans talking about immigration and pretty much seal things up.
Obama was meeting with Hispanic journalists the other day when they asked him about his strategy. And, in a somewhat candid moment, he told them:
"I don't think it requires us to go negative in the sense of us running a bunch of ads that are false, or character assassinations," Obama said, as reported by Univision."It will be based on facts."
"We may just run clips of the Republican debates verbatim," he added. "We won't even comment on them, we'll just run those in a loop on Univision and Telemundo, and people can make up their own minds."
The quote that still sticks out to me so far is that of Mitt Romney, addressing Rick Perry: "You put in place a magnet to draw illegals into the state." That shit is hilarious. This is a line of attack from the likely nominee, supposedly a moderate technocrat: "You put in place a magnet to draw illegals into the state." Yeah, just play it over and over.
