Ryan's Not Good at Double-Talk, But He Tries

One is reminded of Prof. Harold Hill's "Think Method" when watching Ryan stumble around trying to make 2+2=7.

Sad to see a guy with so much potential blow himself up, eh?

He's not "good" at it until he does it with rhythm and flow.

Ryan and Rubio see the writing on the wall. It's about winning elections. So, Dad29, if you want to push your agenda and ensure it won't be f--- up, then you best get your candidate papers ready, work to get elected, and then stand by your principles 100% of the time.

Anon 9:32, if they think that they'll win elections by amnesty, they haven't learned from the past. Although, on one level, it IS about elections. It'll guarantee DEMOCRAT electoral wins. So, if Ryan is as foolish as Rubio, he'll push for amnesty. Then, we can all watch the fun.

Billiam, you really need to read the talking points.

"The past two Presidential elections made fairly clear that although Hispanics remain an apolitical group, their growing numbers in battleground states have made them an influential voting bloc. Rush Limbaugh can gleefully claim that participation rates among Latino voters have declined this past election -- that there really is no need for Republicans to pander. But what makes this point particularly problematic is that the fertility rates among Hispanics are higher than the American average and population increases in the right swing states make all the difference in national elections."

"Most Republicans seem quite cognizant of the increasing role of Hispanic voters on the national stage, but some seem obtusely impervious to it. Republicans need to start playing smarter chess; they’ve made too many mistakes already with Hispanic voters the past several elections. There are only so many times you can find yourself in check without getting into check-mate. This doesn’t mean that they need to cave in at every proposal, but they should also recognize their advantage has shifted. Hispanics aren’t an ideologically committed group; they're also forgiving, so they need not give up. Yet, saying they shouldn't give up implies that they had once tried. There’s not much evidence of this."

And there's even less evidence that CURRENT Hispanic-origin US citizens like "amnesty."

Two reasons: they did it the hard way, and they don't want more competition for their jobs.

Where is your evidence, Dad29? Care to provide a source to back up your claim?

You can look it up yourself, Anony. But don't bother looking at (D) or (R)-approved propaganda mills.

No, the burden is on YOU to prove the assertion. You must have been asleep at Marquette when taking Debate 101.
