Booming Latino growth could be 2012 tipping point

(CNN) - President Obama and Mitt Romney are set to make appearances beginning Thursday at a major gathering of Latino officials and activists in Florida, a moment that campaign-weary Democrats have awaited for weeks.

Obama's strategists relish any chance to drive a wedge between Romney and Hispanic voters, and at the annual conference of the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials, or NALEO, the president is all-but-certain to paint Romney as beholden to anti-immigrant elements of his party's conservative base.

    The full Post article here clearly underscores the Republican "difficulty" per Boehner or its ability via Romney stated policy to change perceptions of no to dream act cannot even agree with the recent Obama proposals re Latino kids and of course supports Arizona policy 1070 law. Not very Hispanic friendly or Latino re-assuring.
    The increase in the Puerto Rican vote numbers also starts to explain the clearly election rigging purge policies of the governor and its other 48 hour rule. It is the worst form of gerry mandering I have ever seen. Holder, please stop this injustice, and make them do it legally and with proper review not based on documents that are often wrong as we all know.

    Focus on what Obama is saying now..., not what he said yesterday, day before that, or 2008. ¿Comprende?
