Barack Obama and the Democratic National Committee are launching an effort to mobilize Latino voters in the presidential election this fall.

The Obama campaign says 20 million dollars is being set aside for the project. The campaign plans to spend the money in all 50 states, but especially in four swing states: Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada and Florida.

The money will go toward registering and mobilizing voters, as well as online organizing and advertisements. The campaign also plans to put extra staff in the four states and train about 500 Latino organizers.

A recent national survey indicated that 66 percent of Hispanic registered voters support Obama, compared to 23 percent for Republican John McCain. The other 11 percent were undecided.

    It is truly fascinating to watch the salesmanship of the PTB's (read Council on Foreign Relations, et al) to sell us the "D" side of the show that cannot constitutionally qualify for President of the United States. Barak's birth certificate is in extreme question, as is his eligibility for the office: http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/2008/07/atlas-exclusive.html Folks, for the love of Jesus, Please Read both the Federal Constitution and the State Constitution. Thanks for your time.
