NALEO Annual Conference - C-SPAN Video Library

Quote:
The 2010 Census data confirm that America has a new face - Latinos are now more than 50 million strong, and Latino growth has fueled the increase in state populations throughout the nation. Panelists will discuss the implications of these changes for the Latino community and our nation's political future.
Mayor Castro's speech was on topic and way better than Gov. Perry's. Gov. Perry was supposed to be talking about Latinos, not how great Texas employment is compared to other states. All he did was bragging about Texas during most of his speech. Only in the last few minutes does he start talking about Latinos. It didn't seem like he knew much about it compared to Mayor Castro. Then he starts speaking all these names saying this was the first Hispanic appointed to such in such office. Great you know how to roll your r's and say their names in Spanish awesome but you could of spent that time bragging about Texas job creation a little more. This is like a first but Gov. Perry did make me laugh at end with "One of my favorites the head of the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission Jose Cuevas."

so????????

its not always about latinos. if i was perry, i too would be boasting about how texas created 40% of the new jobs in the usa since the economic 'recovery' began.

the crappy mayor we have does nothing but pander to special interest hispanic groups. the one thing he has done right was veto something that would have caused the burn ban / fireworks ban to expire.

also, dont forget the failed 'i want to pander to hispanic groups and rename durango' incident that he's been really silent about...

The governor of a state talking good about their state? Taking the entire population into consideration instead of focusing on one group to pander to? That's ludicrous.. what will they think of next?

BTW, the op's other postings have an obvious agenda.

It's funny how "diversity" in this city is meaning "more hispanics and less of everyone else." That's not diversity, and is demographic displacement of everyone who's not Mexican (and let's not lie here people it's NOT about hispanics from anywhere and everywhere, and is solely about Mexicans). I really wish Mexicans would stop hiding behind hispanics in general to cover their own calculated intentions against the US, otherwise known as "Aztlan."

An the mayor is an outright bigot who only caters to his own kind.

Perry was not wrong about border laws. Mexico protects its borders quite harshly and gives none of the "human rights" illegal Mexicans flat-out demand of America, so with Castro and his ilk it's just more "do as we say, not as we do" one-sided hypocricy.

I thought they were speaking at the NALEO conference? As in National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials. Why wouldn't they talk about Latino contribution in civil service since basically that's what the entire group is about? I didn't see any of what Perry had to say, but did he tie the "massive economic boom texas has contributed to the national economy" to Latinos? It would just seem feasible to expect people to talk about how great Latinos are at a conference about how great Latinos are.

Default Perry, terrible speaker,

Perry cannot deliver a speech any better than Bush did. I watched
his delivery in New Orleans a couple of weeks ago. Republicans are desperate.
Send money.
It is horrible to see a group other than wasps pandered to. When will it stop?
Julian is smooth as glass. This is terrible. Henry was a genius, this can't be happening. Have you seen his credentials?
Crybabies... a bunch of self-congratulatory and powerless, shrill eunochs.

We're in the San Antonio forum. The discussion needs to focus on the mayor's remarks to be on topic here.

See if you can do better on that score from this point forward, or the thread will be closed.
