YOU'VE COME AWAY.

THE ARCH OF HISTORY IS LONG BUT IT BENDS TOWARDS SHAMELESSNESS.

WHENEVER EVERYTHING INTENSE HAPPENS IN THE LATINO COMMUNITY THINGS -- EMOTIONS RUB HIGH.

WE'RE JOINED BY AL MADRIGAL.

HE IS HERE IN HIS PANIC ROOM.

>> ACTUALLY JON IT'S ONE WORD: HISPANIC NOT HIS PANIC.

[ LAUGHTER ]

>> Jon: SENATE REPUBLICANS REPORTING LIVE FROM THE DEMOGRAPHIC REALITY IN THIS

COUNTRY COOPERATING WITH A BIPARTISAN AND COMPREHENSIVE IMMIGRATION REFORM BILL FOR

ELECTORAL PURPOSES.

YOUR THOUGHTS?

>> WHAT A MOMENT FOR HISPANICS, JOHN.

TO SEE -- JON.

TO SEE REPUBLICANS IN A LAST DITCH DESPERATE ATTEMPT TO ENSURE THE EXISTENCE OF THEIR

POLITICAL PARTY FINALLY REACH ACROSS THE AISLE WITH ONE HAND WHILE USES THE OTHER TO HOLD

THEIR NOSES IT'S A GREAT DAY.

FORCED AT LAST, FORCED AT LAST, THANK GOD ALMIGHTY FORCED AT LAST.

WHAT A DAY.

[ APPLAUSE ]

>> Jon: THAT'S A PRETTY CYNICAL -- I HAVE TO SAY IT'S PRETTY CYNICAL POLITICAL CALCULATIONS.

>> YEAH, SURE IS.

>> Jon: I GUESS THE QUESTION IS: WILL IT WORK?

WILL THIS BRING HISPANICS IN LARGER NUMBERS TO THE REPUBLICAN PARTY?

>> LET'S CRUNCH SOME NUMBERS.

LET'S GET DOWN IN THE WEEDS.

BY THE WAY, WHO BETTER TO GET DOWN IN THE WEEDS, RIGHT?

>> Jon: I GET IT.

>> MEXICANS.

[ LAUGHTER ]

>> Jon: RIGHT, MEXICANS.

>> THE WEED (bleep).

>> Jon: ALL RIGHT, JUST GO.

>> JEWS ARE CHEAP.

>> Jon: ALL RIGHT.

THERE ARE MANY, MANY STEREOTYPES JUST CONTINUE.

HERE WE GO.

OBAMA BEAT ROMNEY ABOUT FIVE MILLION VOTES.

THAT'S WITH ROMNEY HAVING WON 27% OF THE LATINO VOTE WHICH MEANS IF ROMNEY MANAGED 17% MAS

THE INAUGURATION WOULD HAVE LOOKED LIKE THIS.

>> Jon: WAIT, WHAT?

WHAT IS GOING ON WITH ANN ROMNEY'S HAIR?

>> THOSE BANGS WERE HAPPENING NO MATTER WHO WON.

[ LAUGHTER ]

>> Jon: DOES THIS IMMIGRATION BILL MAKE UP FOR PAST SLIGHTS?

I MEAN, GAIN THE REPUBLICANS THE EXTRA 17% THEY NEED?

THEY'VE BEEN HARD ON THE HISPANIC COMMUNITY.

>> PROBABLY NOT, JON.

THE PROBLEM FOR VEABZ THAT WHILE OVER 90% OF -- REPUBLICANS IS WHILE OVER 90% OF HISPANICS

SUPPORT IMMIGRATION REFORM A FULL 65% OF LATINOS HOLD GRUDGES.

83% IF IT'S SOMETHING YOU DID TO THEIR SISTER.

[ LAUGHTER ]

>> Jon: AL, HOW LONG WOULD A GRUDGE LIKE THAT TYPICALLY LAST?

WHAT WOULD IT TAKE FOR HISPANICS TO GET OVER THE GRUDGE?

>> A LATINO GRUDGE ON AVERAGE LASTS JUST OVER FOUR GENERATIONS.

SO RIGHT THERE --

>> Jon: I GET IT.

ALL RIGHT.

[ LAUGHTER ]

>> ITALIAN, IRISH --

>> Jon: MAKES SENSE.

>> THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT A LATINO GENERATION IS ONLY SEVEN YEARS.

>> Jon: I DIDN'T KNOW.

THAT TO GET TO 51% OF THE ELECTRIC TOUR RATE THEY'LL HAVE TO -- ELECTORATE THEY'LL HAVE

TO -- THE REPUBLICANS.

>> PULL SOME VOTES OF PREVIOUSLY OFFENDED DEMOGRAPHICS.

>> Jon: 93% OF AFRICAN-AMERICANS VOTED FOR OBAMA.

PERHAPS PULL SOME FROM THERE.

>> THAT'S A POSSIBILITY.

>> I GOT THIS, AL.

THAT IS NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN, JON, NEVER.

>> Jon: THERE'S NO WAY THE REPUBLICANS CAN CHIP AWAY AT THE AFRICAN VOTE.

>> THAT SHIP HAS SAILED LITERALLY JORCHGHTS YES, SIR, NOTHING IS WRITTEN IN STONE.

>> THAT'S TRUE.

I MEAN MAYBE THE REPUBLICANS COULD HAVE A CONFERENCE WHERE THEY TALK ABOUT OUTREACH TO

MINORITY VOTERS.

>> Jon: RIGHT, RIGHT, THAT COULD HELP.

>> AND MAYBE THEY COULD HOLD THAT MINORITY OUT REACH CONFERENCE, UM, I DON'T KNOW

EARLIER THIS MONTH AT A FORMER VIRGINIA SLAVE PLANTATION!

NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN.

>> Jon: I FORGOT ABOUT THAT.

>> I DON'T KNOW HOW THE HELL SHE GOT IN HERE IT'S CALLED THE HISPANIC ROOM.

NOT YOUNG BLACK CHICK ROOM.

>> Jon: AL, WHERE ARE REPUBLICANS GOING TO GET THE VOTE?

>> MAYBE ASIANS, I DON'T KNOW FISCALLY CONSERVATIVE GAY PEOPLE IF THAT'S EVEN A THING.

OR POSSIBLY HAWAIIAN PRANKSTERS BUT LOOK, IT STILL WON'T GET THEM OVER THE TOP.

>> Jon: ROMNEY LOST THE FEMALE VOTE BY 11 POINTS CSM THEY MAKE INROADS THERE?

>> IT'S A POSSIBILITY.

I COULD SEE --

>> AGAIN, I GOT THIS.

ROLE 212-

>> IF IT'S A LEGITIMATE RAPE THE FEMALE BODY HAS WAYS WAYS TO TRY TO SHUT THAT WHOLE THING DOWN.

>> NEVER GONNA HAPPEN.

>> Jon: THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
