THE RECIPE FOR A FUTURE:

Bush Wins Over Hispanics in Texas (AP, 11/3/04)

President Bush won a majority of the Hispanic vote in Texas today, a landmark accomplishment that aided his easy victory in his home state, according to an Associated Press exit poll.

Bush won 61 percent of the overall vote in Texas, while challenger John Kerry took 38 percent and Libertarian Michael Badnarik squeezed out 1 percent.

The survey of voters also found that Texans who voted in the general election strongly supported Bush's decision to go to war in Iraq and praised his performance in office.

The exit-poll findings on Bush's support among Hispanics in Texas -- just under 60 percent -- were similar to results in Florida but nearly the mirror image of the nationwide vote, in which Democrat John Kerry won about 55 percent of the Hispanic vote.

In his first run for the White House four years ago, Bush carried 43 percent of the Hispanic vote in Texas and 35 percent nationally, according to exit polls.


Take Red, add brown, black and yellow, stir, yields permanent majority.

Once again, Texas teaches us lessons which we can repeat all across America.

Permanent majority of what? Duplicate of the Democratic Party.

h-man,

How about a country where people vote their interests not their skin color? Wouldn't that be a nice change?
