Presidente Bush 2004 Hispanic Campaign Video

(George Putnam's Side Note)

The Los Angeles Times tells of a video taken during Bush's 2004 campaign that was mailed to Latino voters across the country. Bush is shown waving a Mexican flag. And during his speech at San Antonio in 1996, while running for governor, he stated, "About 15 years before the Civil War, much of the American West was northern Mexico. The people who lived there were not called 'Latinos' or 'Hispanics'; they were Mexican citizens until all that land became part of the U.S. After that, many of them were treated as foreigners in their own land." So help me God, that's what the president said when he was running for governor and appealing to Latinos.
