Hugh Hewitt confuses me

Hugh Hewitt asks the next potential GOP Chairperson a few questions they should be able to answer to get the job. I found most of them interesting, but his third question in particular:

Why did the youth and Latino votes break decisively towards Barack Obama? How should the Republican Party address both demographics?

This is weird since Hewitt and other Orange County Republicans have spent the better part of two decades comparing Latinos seeking work to felons. There are ways to control the border that are consistent with the freedom of movement for labor, family unification, social integration and the entrepreneurial spirit. Unfortunately for the GOP, and consistent with the GOP’s refusal to practice what they preach, they could not have run a better campaign to repulse Latino voters if they had tried.

[Update] Oh yeah, and there is this.
