Republican swift boaters spent $80,000 to run an ad aimed at Hispanic voters encouraging them to stay home and not to vote. Luckily, some some corporations are not all about the Almighty buck,

I'd like to hear the entire ad before making judgement, however I don't know that it is honest to blame the entire "GOP" when this was an ad placed by Latino's for Reform, a Republican Group. Not the GOP.

That said, this election cycle has been particulary ugly.

Shame on them is right... urging ppl NOT to exercise their right to vote.

"un american" is right...The GOP claims to love America and all it stands for, they sure do contradict what they say

I dont like the "dont vote" message. However, the part about being fed up with politicians promising change to woo your vote, having a super majority and then not to pass promised legislation...I can see how they would be fed up. I guess I would have preferred the message not offer the conclusion "dont vote", but pointed out what was promised, what is not done and let the voter make their own decision.

The Republicans had a super majority for a couple of years and only what they wanted got passed. Super majorities never work, regaurdless of side. I think it is funny when people (no, not you) pick on another person's side when their side is guilty of the same thing.

This same group, made up of hispanics, also urged voters not to vote for Obama because he was going to help African Americans more than them. I think it is weird that a group of hispanics would want to stifle their own. I am not sure why people can blame the GOP for this, but that seems to be the norm.

" The ad claims to have been paid for by a group called Latinos for Reform and is not authorized by any candidate or committee."
The Republican said to go to the polls and vote for Angle in response, not stay home and don't vote:
"Senator Harry Reid will literally say or do anything to get elected, so we understand the frustration within the Hispanic Community. Additionally, Senator Reid's failed policies have made Nevada the leader in unemployment and the best way to express any anger towards the 28-year incumbent is by going to the polls and voting for Sharron Angle." Jahan Wilcox, Nevada Republican Party Spokesman
