Painting Bob Menendez as A Victim
For one thing, Senator Robert Menendez, the Democratic incumbent and a son of Cuban immigrants, is the first nonwhite candidate in New Jersey history to run as a major party nominee in a statewide race.Please, Bob Menendez is of European decent and is as “white” as Cuban-Americans Desi Arnaz of “I Love Lucy” and Bob Villa of “This Old House". Not to mention, Lyle and Erik Menendez from Beverly Hills, California. In fact, 73 percent of Cuban-Americans are “white” and that includes Bob Menendez. Enough of the “nonwhite” nonsense.
If his name was Bob Smith and he came from Madison, then I don’t think this would be as necessarily close as it is,” said Peter Woolley, the director of Fairleigh Dickinson University’s PublicMind poll.
Bob Menendez is in a tight Senate race because his answer to every problem is to increase taxes, he favors amnesty for illegal aliens and is currently under criminal investigation for political corruption.
This election isn’t about race, ethnicity or last name no matter how hard the media tires to paint Menendez as some sort of oppressed victim of “white” people. Menendez’ “true colors” have been exposed during this campaign and they aren’t pretty.
