By Steve Parkhurst As the new year is now underway, the personal shock of the 2012 election has still not set in for me. In my mind I keep re-playing this brief speech excerpt from Paul Ryan just before the November election: PAUL RYAN: “Our commitment is really clear. We’re saying here are the solutions; […] more

The Hill reports today that Senator Jim DeMint may yet rally the troops to Congressman Todd Akin’s side. A few key passages: Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) will attend a $500-per-plate fundraiser for Akin on Monday. He told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that Republicans need Missouri to win the Senate. “I don’t see how […] more

Missouri congressman and US Senate candidate Todd Akin, has ended his apology tour. Good. In a press conference late Friday, Akin confirmed that he is in the race to stay. At this point, we all know what Akin said, no need to rehash that. His apology tour was a waste of time, he lost a […] more

By all accounts, including Salena Zito’s stellar reporting, Paul Ryan made a very successful trip to Pennsylvania on Tuesday, while at the same time Mitt Romney was in Houston where he raised $6 million.

This column originally appeared at Texas GOP Vote: By Artemio Muniz Paul Ryan’s rise to the national mainstream has given the GOP a great chance to market its approach to the nation’s problems. Unfortunately in the last days, Republicans have dropped the ball when it comes to controlling the narrative put forward by Univision, the […] more
It’s not the “Hispanic media” stupid, it is conservatives not showing up to battle for the hearts and minds of viewers. It’s infuriating to watch golden opportunities like these slip by, where our lack of serious presence leads to having other forces define us. We should always be on offense, fighting for every single vote.
The truth is Paul Ryan is a problem solver, and his immigration solution would be more in line with our Texas solution on immigration from our Texas Republican platform. Paul Ryan supports a guest worker program. This is huge. Who shows more concern for Hispanics? Paul Ryan who supports keeping hard workers here with a temporary guest program or a two faced Obama who divides families and deports in record numbers?
The answer is easy to the Hispanic community. The fact that he promised immigration reform but deported in record numbers makes for a nuclear talking point that would crush or seriously hinder any get out the vote efforts of the Democrats. Throw in Fast and Furious and the deal is done. If Republicans at the national level could only modernize, or acquire the talent needed to express these talking points we would own the narrative in Spanish and all Hispanic media. In Houston, our Federation of Hispanic Republicans have been able to dismantle the Democrats on immigration in the media .
They no longer bring it up.
