Amigos: Obama and La Raza Operate From Same Playbook

Posted By Rob Bluey On July 25, 2011 @ 11:51 am In Scribe | Comments Disabled

President Obama speaks to the National Council of La Raza today to deliver his latest sales pitch to Hispanics. His talking points should sound familiar. La Raza regularly mirrors the White House message on a range of topics [1] — from the ongoing debt-limit debate to Elizabeth Warren.

Recent action alerts from La Raza frame nearly every national policy debate as a Latino issue. They also reveal a high level of coordination [1] on messaging between the White House and the nation’s largest Hispanic advocacy organization.

Looking back at the major policy battles over the past two years, I document the alignment between the White House and La Raza in a story for The Daily Caller [1] today.

UPDATE: Obama used today’s speech to blame Republicans [2] for the lack of progress on immigration reform. The White House posted the full transcript [3].
