Steve King: Democrats Will Win Over Hispanics By Giving Them ‘A Great Big Check’


By Jeff Spross on Nov 29, 2012 at 8:12 pm

Since President Obama’s re-election and Mitt Romney’s poor performance among Hispanic voters, a number of prominent conservative lawmakers and commentators have come out in favor of immigration reform. But Rep. Steve King (R-IA) appears to have not gotten the memo, if his first comments on immigration since the election are any indication.

Echoing Mitt Romney’s now-infamous complaint that Obama won by handing out “gifts” to women and minorities, King told radio host Janet Mefferd yesterday that Republicans should not fixate on winning back the Hispanic vote because Democrats can always counter offer with “a great big check.” Right Wing Watch and Huffington Post’s Nick Wing picked up the exchange:

JANET MEFFERD: How in the world do you out-left the left anyway? If we go to the left on amnesty, do you think the Democrats are going to sit still and just go ‘oh I guess that they’re more caring than we are’? It’s a zero-sum game. I don’t know how in the world the Republicans expect to get votes when the Democrats are already farther along than we are.

STEVE KING: There’s no possible way. Whatever we might say we are going to do, reduce the enforcement of the rule of law, waive the rule of law, Democrats will find a way to hand deliver citizenship papers along with a great big check from money borrowed from the Chinese.

1. Hey, Steve! Will the check be as large as the one you gave...

...the Banksters and Wall Street Brokers? Huh? Will it?

American capitalism:
Socialize the risks;
Privatize the profits.

6. The Bush tax cuts were a $2 trillion check to the rich

anything Obama "gives" to Hispanics, African-Americans, Asians and/or the poor will pale in comparison. Heck, the entire Obama stimulus was only a fraction of that.

7. King thinks Repugs can't "outleft the left"?

They had no problem at all trying to outright the right.
