Hispanics Will Have a Hard Time Supporting Obama This Time Around

Why? His attack on religious principles:
President Barack Obama’s campaign to woo growing Hispanic communities in southern states being thwarted by his simultaneous campaign to regulate their neighborhood churches, both Catholic and evangelical.

The proposed regulation “has caused an incredible amount of consternation and angst in the Hispanic community. … It is un-American to tell my pastor, my minister, my priest that they have to violate what they believe in,” said Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference.

The conference represents 18,000 non-Catholic churches and 15 million Hispanic evangelicals, or roughly one third of Hispanics in the United States.
I mentioned the other day that about 70% of Hispanics are Catholics, and you know they're not going to be too excited about Obama's new HHS rules either. Could be trouble for Obama 2012.
