Harry Reid: "I don’t know how anyone of Hispanic heritage could be a Republican."
GLENN: Here’s Harry Reid. He says I don’t know how anyone of Hispanic heritage that could be a Republican. It’s weird, Harry. You should get out more because the approval ratings for Barack Obama with Hispanics, dropping like a rock.
STU: In fact, his entire decline this year in approval is basically from Hispanics. Whites and blacks have remained almost exactly equal.
GLENN: That’s an amazing stat. May I just point out that it could be that those who have come from other countries, like Venezuela, I was with somebody this weekend and she was from Venezuela and she wept about her family and what has happened in Venezuela with her family now.
PAT: For joy? She wept for joy because Hugo is doing such great things down there for her family?
GLENN: No. May I give you ‑‑
PAT: May I play ‑‑ here’s what Senator Reid said.
GLENN: Oh. Do you have it? All right. Good.
REID: I don’t know how anyone of Hispanic heritage could be a Republican. Okay? Do I need to say more?
PAT: No. You don’t need to say any more.
GLENN: You don’t even need to say that.
PAT: And was this woman you were talking to from Venezuela a Democrat or ‑‑
GLENN: I didn’t ask. I know she’s not an Obama supporter because through her tears, she was, like, Lord help us. Oh, Lord help us. It is Chavez. All the stuff that they did. It’s Chavez. It’s the beginning of Chavez. Oh, Lord, help her. So, I’m not sure. I didn’t ask her for her party affiliation at that point.
STU: Could she be possibly be part of a 28 point drop in approval ratings in Hispanics for Barack Obama since midlast year?
GLENN: I don’t know.
STU: Do you think that that’s possible?
GLENN: It’s kind of crazy to think that people who have come from corrupt or Marxist countries recognize and see the writing on the wall and see what ‑‑ what this soldier who called us about an hour ago said, I was in Iraq and I thought, when I got on the plane, thank heavens that my country isn’t this corrupt and then I got here and then I went, oh, no. It could be that once you’ve seen it elsewhere ‑‑
STU: Could it be that maybe someone from a regime like you’re talking about values law and order so when they see something like SB 1070 they may actually not ‑‑
GLENN: Media Matters, may I just point out ‑‑ hang on just a second. You can go on. I just want to point out ‑‑ I want to help them.
GLENN: Because they’re spending so much of George Soros’ money.
STU: It’s being wasted.
GLENN: I know. Media Matters, I just want to point out, he used the word "regime"
STU: I was talking about Hugo Chavez as you were talking about.
GLENN: Yeah, ‑‑ I think I heard the implied Obama is Hitler.
STU: You think you heard the implied Obama ‑‑
GLENN: Close enough. I’m trying to help Media Matters.
STU: That’s pretty close.
PAT: All the headline needs to say, anyway, Stu Burguiere baselessly uses the word regime.
GLENN: Thank you. That’s good stuff. Whoa, whoa, whoa. He is not rounding people up and slaughtering them. Why are you saying this?
PAT: Wow, Stu.
GLENN: Stu, stop it.
STU: I don’t understand.
PAT: Holy cow. That’s too far.
STU: What did I do?
GLENN: Whoa, whoa, whoa. I don’t care ‑‑
PAT: Oh what, a racist!
GLENN: Now you’re saying that you have evidence that he’s building gas chambers?
PAT: Oh, my.
STU: I didn’t say that at all.
GLENN: I hear one more word and I’ll have to terminate you.
STU: But I’m just trying to ‑‑
GLENN: One more word ‑‑
PAT: Why would you start screaming about communism now?
STU: I didn’t even say the word communism.
PAT: Nazis, commies.
