President Barack Obama’s effort to court Hispanics, a key electoral bloc, continued Wednesday as his press office announced a White House American Latino Heritage Forum, meant to “celebrate the past and ongoing contributions of American Latinos who have helped shape America’s rich and diverse history.”
Two things were made painfully clear in the CNN/Tea Party Republican debate -- the majority of the GOP candidates don't have a clue as to who are Latino voters and some Tea Party members aren't afraid to show the depth of their intolerance and ignorance when it comes to the immigration issue.
A group calling itself Keep Conservatives United has come up with a radio spot that will start airing on stations across South Carolina, THE AD MAKES it clear that Michelle Bachmann wants to crack down on all those foreigners in this country, while saying that Rick Perry as the governor of a border state is somehow at fault for letting them in.

News is Texas Gov. Rick Perry will make his official announcement on Saturday that he is running in the 2012 presidential election.
