Dick Morris Says He Is Working On An RNC Ad Aimed At Latinos

Dick Morris is working with Republican National Committee Chair Reince Priebus on a new television advertisement that will include Preibus seeking to attract Latino voters, Morris revealed during an appearance in New York City Thursday.

Speaking at the Poli Conference, a political consulting event for Latin American campaign professionals, Morris said the ad will feature Priebus reaching out to "those Latin Americans who've come to the United States to help us build our country, to help harvest our food, to help make our economy work and [Priebus'] message is 'welcome, we need you, you're making our country younger, more prosperous, harder working and we need you for the future.'"

According to Morris, the ad will make use of "that concept of reflecting back to people their own value and their own worth. In the advertisement he [Priebus] says, 'we honor our ancestors who took covered wagons to settle the west and brave the Indians, but you are the new pioneers, you are the new people in America doing that.' And I think that is a very, very interesting thing to do in a campaign."

Republican Party Spokesman Ryan Mahoney did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the ad. Asked about when it might run or where, Morris declined to offer more details.

Morris' work with the Republican National Committee is noteworthy given the implosion of Morris' stature and credibility following the 2012 election and his now infamous prediction of a "landslide" victory for Republican Mitt Romney. After the election Morris was effectively banned from appearing on Fox News, where he worked as an on-air contributor until the network declined to renew his contract in early February. Morris also brings with him a host of ethics problems -- Morris' group Super PAC for America reportedly spent significant amounts of money renting Morris' own email list in the months before the election, allowing him to simply pocket money raised by the group.

That Photoshop may be too good for him, DG. It makes him look 30 years younger and 50 pounds lighter.

Also, a not-insignificant number of Latin@s were, how shall I put this, already here when the covered wagons were rolling.

How very kind of Mr. Morris to remember that a lot of Latin@s have worked in the agricultural industry and put money into the economy.

Chapeau d'âne.

The Space Merchants, DG, They have arrived en force, 15 years ago!

"Brave the Indians"- what a quaint was to say 'genocide'.

" what a quaint was to say 'genocide'"

Yeah, guess they're not too interested in winning over Native American support. Between this and the recent "wetbacks" comment you really wonder if they ever listen to what they're saying.

"You are the new people in America settling al over the country, braving the dangers of - um, our party ..."

"Brave the Indians"?!

Most Mexicans are Indians. Oh, and unlike ignoramus Morris, they are aware ofvthe fact.

How dumb and insensitive is that?

Or maybe he's referring those unjustified and imperial wars whereby the US stole about two thirds of Mexico.

In any case, I don't think the Dems have too much to fear from this campaign.
