What exactly is Ted Cruz trying to say here? Hispanics are better than blacks, whites? WTF...?

http://finance.yahoo.com/news/ted-cr...202843704.html

Quote:
Presidential candidate and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said on Wednesday that he has never seen a Hispanic person begging for money on the street.

"I don't think I've ever seen an Hispanic panhandler. And the reason is: In our community it would be shameful to be begging on the street," Cruz said, recalling a conversation he once had with a Latino businessman on the topic.

Cruz, who is of Cuban descent, made the point while speaking in Washington at a question-and-answer session with the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.

He used the example to argue the Republican Party should be able to compete for the Latino vote. Hispanics, Cruz said, share many of the same values that are championed by GOP leaders.

"I think the Hispanic community is a fundamentally conservative community. If you look at the values that resonate in our community, they're faith, family, patriotism, hard work," Cruz said. "Now if you want people to work their fingers to their bone, hard work, you'll have Hispanic men and women lining up to work hard to provide for their families. Those are all conservative values."

Cruz has made the same argument in the past.
Maybe im reading too much into it because i really don't like the twisted S.O.B.

I can tell he's never been to Toronto. There are probably a half dozen homeless Hispanic panhandlers within a 3 block radius of my office right now.

I will throw a fucking party the second one of these conservative justices croaks, that's for sure. Freedom!

Let's put it this way...
What if I came on here and said that I cheer when black criminals die. There would be an outrage and deservedly so. But if someone says that they cheer when old white people die, theres nothing. That's the kind of crap that pisses me off about people around here.

Well, there's a distinction here.

I don't wish death on Antonin Scalia. I wouldn't wish that on anyone.

However, do I think his decisions are bad for people and bad for America? Do I think we would live in a better country were he off the court? If he died tomorrow of natural causes, would not a part of me be happy that a spot opened up on the court of another Obama appointee? Absolutely.

But he was put there fair and square. Elections have consequences. So it's fine.

Also, Ruth Bader Ginsberg is the greatest living octogenarian. I wish she were immortal.

Calm down, he only made the post 2 hrs ago, and only one other person has posted since then. No one's cheering him on. He's already been warned by a mod and the poster is known to troll. Overreact less and engage more and you'll be less pissed off in here.

I think it's ok when old white people die
old black people too. If you can make it to your 80s that's been a good ride

If Alito, Scalia got called home to the Jesus they claim they believe in it would not be a tragedy.
I hope that happens after Hillary is elected with a Democratic Senate.

Or Austin, Houston, Dallas, Fort Worth, or San Antonio... which happen to be in the state that he represents.

He's a GOP pawn. Those comments were made to impress Hispanic voters even if they insult everyone else. #conspiracy

Its official, Carly Fiorina is running for President!

Quote:

Carly Fiorina announces presidential bid


CNN)Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina announced her candidacy for president on Monday, becoming the first declared female candidate to seek the Republican Party's nomination.
"Yes, I am running," Fiorina said on ABC's "Good Morning America." "I think I'm the best person for the job because I understand how the economy actually works. I understand the world; who's in it."
The ex-Silicon Valley executive and long-shot White House contender has never held public office. In 2010, she unsuccessfully ran for Senate in California, losing to Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer.
She is now one of only a few women ever to seek the Republican Party's nomination for president -- among them, former Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann, who was a candidate in 2012, and former North Carolina Sen. Elizabeth Dole, who made a brief run in the 2000 cycle.
Fiorina has been laying the groundwork for a possible presidential campaign over the past few months, traveling to early states like Iowa and New Hampshire and meeting with activists and donors.
Casting herself as an outside-the-beltway candidate with years of private sector experience, she has been particularly critical of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her work in government.
