In Fox News Latino: Mitt Romney: First Gringo-Latino President?

TWLC's Viviana Hurtado in Fox News Latino on Mitt Romney: First Gringo-Latino President?

The Latinada in Florida and revelations that Romney has Mexican roots was the perfect opportunity for me to write about a theme that’s been haunting me since I got dinged from Jarbard as a senior in high school. The preppy ol’ viejito asked me what my ‘rents thought about me applying to college because girls like you start having […]

TWLC’s Viviana Hurtado on CBS LA 1070 on Election 2012: The Latino Vote

The Wise Latina Club's Viviana Hurtado on Sirius XM's P.O.T.U.S Politics Radio on Puerto Rico Primary, Election 2012, The Latino Vote

Florida’s primary was the first nominating contest which put the Latino vote in focus.  While not a huge portion of the Sunshine state’s Republican primary base, make no mistake: Hispanic voters are here to stay. Duh, Sherlock, of course in South Florida where the powerful Cuban-American community bolsters business, politics, and the arts. But let […]

In Fox News Latino: GOP Debate Features Brawl over Immigration and Health Care

The Wise Latina Club's Viviana Hurtado in Fox News Latino on Jacksonville, FL GOP Debate

The GOP Debates are to policy wonks and political junkies what American Idol is to middle American: drama, underdogs, audiences whooping, yelping, booing, and high-fiving I’m sure, if CNN had turned the cameras more on the audience. At the center of this spectacle are the four remaining GOP presidential nominee hopefuls in the run up […]

In Fox News Latino: State of the Union: ‘Make or Break’ for Obama and Middle Class

The Wise Latina Club's Viviana Hurtado in Fox News Latino on President Obama's State of the Union

I read on crack on Facebook along the lines:  in Washington, SOTU is like the Superbowl, but for policy dweebs (of which I’m a proud, card-carrying member of this unprotected class). Wait, there’s a problema, and it’s a big one: What the President outlines in the State of Union is more important than any Tom […]

TWLC's Viviana Hurtado in Fox News Latino: Romney Double Downs on Immigration at South Carolina Debate

Drama!  Bright Lights!  Riled up booing crowds!  Blow-dried, made-up, and dark-suited men in stark opposition to the sweater vests or rolled-up sleeves of TV ads! Multiple choice answer: a) latest George Clooney movie b) Rehearsals for the K Street version of S**t White Girls Say to Black Girls or S**t Lobbyists Say to Lawmakers (hmmm.  Maybe I […]

graduation_college_costs-TheWiseLatinaClub

Children must pay the price for actions committed by their parents. That’s the message to students from the Florida Department of Education and the Board of Governors after the requirements to apply for a merit scholarship were revised to include completing a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) with a social security number. No […]

fox_news_latino-TheWiseLatinaClub

For those of you keeping score, this is my 18th part-time/full-time job, but man, I couldn’t be more psyched! I’m excited to share that I was asked to regularly contribute a politics column on Fox New Latino led by top journos Francisco Cortés, Sr. and Alberto Vourvoulias. Fox News and Latino, ¿¿¿¿¿quuuuuéééé????? Jes, heard that right. […]

Republicans_Vying-TheWiseLatinaClub

Latinos are furious with the President for failing to deliver on his promise of immigration reform as I outline in the series “Anatomy of an Immigration Debate” and the Latina Magazine post that preceded this one which looks at Obama’s stance on this political hot button issue.  But where do those vying to be his Republican […]
