President Obama told Hispanics that when he looks at their children he sees his own daughters.
Obama made the statement speaking to the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials today. The speech was an opportunity to race-bait and attack Mitt Romney.
The Washington Examiner: …”These are all our kids,” he declared.
To a standing ovation, Obama spoke of his directive last week that immigrants brought illegally to the United States as children be exempted from deportation and granted work permits if they applied.
Reflecting on his own life as the first African-American president, he said: “When I meet these young people, all throughout communities, I see myself. Who knows what they might achieve? I see my daughters, and my nieces, and my nephews.”..
I saw a poll today that claimed 18% of the populace won’t vote for Romney because he is a Mormon (24% Dems and 10% Repubs) and 4% won’t vote for Obama because he is black. So who is prejudiced? [Gallup polls here and here]
