    I was going to comment, but you've said all I wanted to say and said it more effectively than I ever could.

    This belief that Latinos are a natural fit for the GOP is both condescending and delusional.   They have really been hurt by their one positive Latino experience (the old anti-Castro Cubans), which they continue to use as an all-purpose, culturally insensitive, template for Latino outreach.  They want to believe there is a large cohort of Marco Rubios out there (in contrast to all the bad, lazy Latinos) and they will search in vain to find enough of them to win elections.
