    How can we make this any simpler?

    George H. W. Bush doesn't hate Latinos.

    AND HE STILL GOT REPUBLICANS TO VOTE FOR HIM!

    George H. W. Bush appointed Latinos to important and powerful positions.

    AND HE STILL GOT REPUBLICANS TO VOTE FOR HIM!

    George H. W. Bush supported and supports sensible immigration policies.

    AND HE STILL GOT REPUBLICANS TO VOTE FOR HIM!

    You know what else?

    HE GOT LATINOS TO VOTE FOR HIM!

    Not a majority, not even close.
    But enough.

    Here's the sad part:

    In the pre-wackadoodle days, there was a lot for Latinos to like in Republican values, especially support for small business and entrepreneurship.  There is no rule cast in stone that the GOP can't win Latinos.

    Unless, of course, you insist on staying stupid.
