    'HISPANIC POWER' - Jeb Bush believes Texas will be “blue” by 2016

    Jeb Bush believes Texas will be “blue” by 2016

    Imagine Texas as a blue state, how hard it would be to carry the presidency or gain control of the Senate. [Jeb] assumes his role as party Cassandra, warning of the day when the Republicans’ failure to tap an exploding Hispanic population will cripple its chances at reclaiming power—starting in Texas, the family seat of the House of Bush.

    A lot can change in just four years.

    For former Florida Governor Jeb Bush a four-year timetable is enough for a significant shift for the Republican party. He tells Joe Hagan of New York magazine: “It’s a math question. Four years from now, Texas is going to be a so-called blue state. Imagine Texas as a blue state, how hard it would be to carry the presidency or gain control of the Senate.”

    Hagan starts the article for New York magazine with this idea that Texas’ rapidly changing demographic will unfavorably affect the Republican party. He writes:
    “Sitting down across from me, [Jeb] assumes his role as party Cassandra, warning of the day when the Republicans’ failure to tap an exploding Hispanic population will cripple its chances at reclaiming power—starting in Texas, the family seat of the House of Bush.”
    If this is a problem for the Republican party, Hagan believes Bush is just the solution: “a popular two-time governor of a Hispanic-heavy state, with a record of improving education for minorities, fluent in Spanish, married to a Latina, and father to two Hispanic sons, George P. Bush and Jeb Jr. By Jeb Bush’s own calculus, Jeb Bush would make a great presidential candidate.”

    Dr. Victoria DeFrancesco Soto, a contributor for NBC Latino and MSNBC, doesn’t agree with Bush’s timetable. “Do I think it is going to happen in 15 years sure, but in four years no? Latinos are notorious for low voter turnout so even though they are large in numbers they do not come out to vote.” DeFrancesco Soto believes Bush is trying to send a message to the GOP leadership to take the growing Latino population seriously and so they can intensify their Latino outreach.

    Raul L. Madrid, Associate Professor in the Department of Government at the University of Texas at Austin, says four years is very unlikely, giving three reasons: ”First, many fewer Latinos than Anglos are eligible to vote in Texas because the Latino population is younger and includes more non-citizens. Secondly, Latinos who are eligible to vote register and turn out to vote in lower numbers than eligible Anglos; and finally Anglos in Texas vote Republican at much higher rates than Latinos vote Democrat,” he explains. ”So, you would actually need more Latino voters than Anglo voters in order to turn Texas into a blue state.”

    In response to the article, Jeb Bush sent a letter to the editor of New York magazine stating that the published article is “full of inaccuracies” about him and his family. He did not however deny his “four years” comment.

    The Hispanics are never going to side with Republicans you idiot. I know you think that you can start playing them against the solid Democrat blacks, but you forget that Hispanic voters go 65% Democrat and over half the illegal aliens in the country are on some form of welfare! If you legalize the illegals, real Republicans are gone forever Jeb Bush.

    If you are upset about Texas turning blue, your damn brother and father should have done their jobs and enforced our border and immigration laws as Constitution, their oaths of office, existing federal laws, and most Americans demand.

    Texas is turning blue because RINO sellout traitor Republicans like Jeb Bush, George Bush, John McCain, Lindsay Graham and others DEPRIVE THE AMERICAN PUBLIC OF A CHOICE ON mass immigration that is literally stealing America away from those that have governed here for more than 200 years.

    The ENTIRE "Bush Family" is screwed in the head... as NUTTY as Obama is... We got Obama because of G.W.

    For those that are impressed with Jeb; you better take another look at Florida. Between Jeb Bush and Charlie Christ; Florida has been leveled. Your state may be in a Recession But Florida is in a Depression.

    If you have ANY brain cells that are capible of critical thinking and your brain cells are not limping along in a sling; I suggest you wake the hell up before you take any advice from this NUT that didnt fall far from the family tree

    Amnesty for 11 million will increase debt by $6.3 trillion And that doesn't count costs of 22 million additional legal immigrants in just 10 years!

    As I flipped from channel to channel I kept hearing the same rhetoric - You cannot win an election unless you suck up to people of color. You have to please the Hispanic's. White Americans are the minority. More Latinos were elected to the Senate. On and on.

    Hope and Change - for who! This is not bringing Americans together. This is creating hate and anger.

    Wow, it's hard to imagine Texas going the way of California. However, as the Hispanic anchor children reach voting age and the border remains basically open .......... it could very possibly happen .......... especially with an Obama amnesty!
