Maurice Clements, who commissioned this billboard outside Boise, ID, to honor the memory of Libertarian Ralph Smeed, says his group is angry at President Obama for not bringing the troops home:
We're all outraged over that killing in Aurora, CO, but we're not outraged over the boys killed in Afghanistan.
After criticism mounted, however, Clements softened his stance.
That's a technique of trying to make a point, and maybe it was poorly done.
Even the GOP understands the need to appeal to minority voters, so in October 2011, it launched RNClatinos.com, a Spanish-language site where "Republican National Committee can connect with Hispanic voters, and Hispanic voters can hear Hispanic Republican leaders."
Problem is, the top left corner of the site featured a stock photo of Asian children. (The photo was taken down earlier today after U.S. News & World Report's Washington Whispers blog got wind of it.)
Whatever -- photo or not, Obama still maintains a 43-point lead among Latinos.
