      Everyone remember the Panama papers? A leak of bank records showing that the ultra-rich are hiding massive wealth, tax-free and often breaking the law to do so? A rather weak set of laws designed to allow tax avoidance by rich people, at that. Found out the other day that the reporter who broke the Panama Papers story was killed by a car bomb. Coincidence, n […]

Hillary to visit Latino voters, plus PUMA-SF’s Hillary photo journal!

Huge-tent-sized-Mexican-sombero-hat tip to the marvelous PUMA-SF who wanted to share more Hillary event photos, where she and Simofish gave the exclusive break on Hillary’s delegate petition video.  Please give a big PUMA hug to PUMA-SF and Simofish for being so generous in sharing their Hillary moment with us!  

"Powerful and graceful, even in repose" (h/t Arabella Trefoil)

I looked for news to accompany PUMA-SF’s photos, and look what I found at the Guardian UK:

Hillary Clinton to hit swing states to campaign for Obama

Clinton will hit the campaign trail for her erstwhile rival in Florida and Nevada, two states that have not voted for a Democrat since 1996.

The Democrats this year hope to retake the two states, largely on the strength of legions of newly energised Hispanic voters.

Clinton has a strong appeal among Hispanics – the group backed her roughly two to one over Obama during the primaries this winter. She won primary contests in both states

The visits are planned for mid-late August before the convention.  QUESTION:  Why can’t Obama do this by himself, isn’t HE the so-called leader of the Democratc Party now?  Can’t he at least take some time out of his presumptuous schedule to show up together with Hillary to campaign for Latino votes?  Oh wait, isn’t that when the Precious is on vacation in Hawaii? 


Obama’s Hawaii vacation in August expected to include fundraiser
Candidate set to attend private fundraiser during vacation here

U.S. Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois is expected to attend a private fundraiser for his presidential campaign on Aug. 12 at the Halekulani Hotel, several sources said.

Obama is expected to be in the Islands for about a week for a vacation and local organizers are also hoping for a public rally, possibly at Magic Island.

Andy Winer, Obama’s state director, said yesterday he could not confirm the visit or the details about the fundraiser or rally but said the campaign may make an announcement this week.

The fundraiser is being co-chaired by Mayor Mufi Hannemann and corporate executive and prominent Democratic financier Walter Dods. Donors are being asked to contribute $2,300 per person, sources said, and can attend a reception with the Hawai’i-born candidate for $10,000


MAGIC ISLAND????  The jokes just write themselves with Obama. 

OMG, the Precious can’t be bothered to campaign for Latino votes when he has to have his mani/pedi, body exfoliating, deep tissue massage for the Denver Convention!  Snark aside, it’s insulting and condescending to our community and mark my words, it’ll be a major brou-haha if in fact Obama’s on vacation that week.  But what am I talking about?  Latinos are already under the bus anyways, Hillary ‘s under the bus too, so the trip will be shorter for her, right?  Maybe that’s part of Obama’s energy plan, you know, to save gas and stuff?  Yet if Hillary’s by herself, this may not be such a bad thing.  Some Latinos in the crowd might just say “quédense con el Obama ese, nosotros queremos a Hillary!”  (Stay with that Obama guy, we want Hillary!)

Just Say No Deal & ¡que viva los PUMAs! (Long live PUMAs!)
