Asian Waters

(fm the BC thread "The Gathering Storm")

East China Sea, think oil.

Regarding immigrant groups to many treat them as a uniform mass, which is both insulting and defeatist. Mexicans are not Puerto Ricans and neither are anything like Argentinians, Chileans or Columbians. What is especially dissonant is the complete failure of the Republicans to effectively communicate to Asians. Most Koreans Chinese and Vietnamese should be affiliated with the Republicans and their children should be rising to elective office through the Party. This is not happening. Bobby Jindal did poorly in his first nationally televised response to Obama but the Democrats are understandably terrified of him. Like Sarah Palin he represents an existential threat to them.
