Columnist Ruben Navarrette wrote a great piece titled “Harry Reid Doesn’t Speak For All Latinos.” Navarrete writes:
“Harry Reid can wonder all he wants about why any Hispanic could be a Republican. I’ve been wondering something myself: In light of such flagrant condescension and an obvious lack of regard, why would any self-respecting Hispanic – in Nevada or anywhere else – support Harry Reid?”
Navarrette says what I, and many other Latinos, have wondered in the days since the Senate Majority Leader’s idiotic statement – why would any self-respecting Hispanic voter, of any political parry, support Reid? The Nevada Senator’s has a long history of insensitive, idiotic and hypocritical statements. He has blocked immigration reform and then lies to the public about the reasons. His “I-know-better-then-you” attitude exemplifies his disconnect with voters, and especially Latinos.
Check out Navarrette’s full piece for other Reid gaffes, political hypocrisy and his real record with Latino issues.
