Newt Gingrich’s attacks were a flop with Florida Hispanic voters.
In Florida, Newt Gingrich ran a Spanish-language ad attacking Mitt Romney as anti-immigrant. Gingrich pulled the ad after being reprimanded by Sen. Marco Rubio. “This kind of language is more than just unfortunate. It’s inaccurate, inflammatory, and doesn’t belong in this campaign,” Rubio told the Miami Herald.
“The truth is that neither of these two men is anti-immigrant,” Rubio continued. “Both are pro-legal immigration and both have positive messages that play well in the Hispanic community.” But even after Gingrich pulled his ad, he continued the assault.
“I think he’s amazingly insensitive to the realities of the immigrant community — his whole concept of self-deportation. I’ve not met anyone who thinks it’s in touch with reality. People aren’t going to self- deport,” Gingrich told the Spanish-language network Univision. He said that encouraging illegal immigrants to leave the country voluntarily is an “Obama-level fantasy.”
When Romney and Gingrich sparred over illegal immigration at the second Florida debate, the former House speaker accused Romney of wanting to deport grandparents. “Our problem is not 11 million grandmothers,” Romney shot back. But some Latino activists sided with Gingrich over Romney and Rubio.

AP – Feb. 2: Attorney General Eric Holder testifies on Capitol Hill in Washington before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing entitled, “Fast & Furious: Management Failures at the Department of Justice.”
Attorney General Eric Holder vigorously denied a “cover-up” by the Justice Department over “Operation Fast and Furious,” telling a House panel investigating the botched gun-running program that he has nothing to hide and suggesting the probe is a “political” effort to embarrass the administration.
“There’s no attempt at any kind of cover-up,” Holder told lawmakers well into a hearing about whether he had been forthright in responding to requests of the House Oversight and Government Relations Committee led by Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif.
“We’re not going to be hiding behind any kind of privileges or anything,” he said.
The hearing came after Issa and Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, his Senate partner in the probe, asserted that top Justice officials are covering up events surrounding the flawed gun-smuggling probe.

Sen. DeMint: ‘A Balanced Budget Amendment Would Effectively Put the Democratic Party Out of Business’
(CNSNews.com) – Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) said Tuesday that the Democratic Party would “effectively” be “put out of business,” if Congress were to pass a balanced budget amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
“They can’t work with us on balancing the budget,” DeMint said. “Their whole platform is based on more promises from government and more government spending.
“A balanced budget Amendment to the Constitution would effectively put the Democratic Party out of business, because campaigns could no longer be based on all the promises of what else that government is going to do. Whether it’s partnering with businesses or redistributing wealth, it doesn’t work in a scenario where we have to stop spending.”
