Anchor baby Patti Solis Doyle forced out of top position with Clinton campaign
The floundering Hillary Clinton presidential nomination campaign has responded to the latest Democratic primary and caucus defeats in Maine, Louisiana, Nebraska, Washington and the Virgin Islands by replacing Hispanic campaign manager Patti Solis Doyle with another affirmative action appointee, Maggie Williams, who is black. The decision is seen as both a response to Solis Doyle's manifest incompetence, and a desperate attempt to stop the bleeding as African American voters continue to give overwhelming support to rival Barack Obama.
Maggie Williams served Clinton as a political "maid"; when Clinton was First Lady, Williams served as her "chief of staff." The Williams appointment is a new Clinton strategy dealing with blacks, in tandem with various race baiting attacks against Obama meant to rally whites and women to her cause.
The original appointment of Patti Solis Doyle was seen as an effort to "reach out" to Hispanics, a move that may have been unnecessary given the deep division between Hispanics and blacks. The Nevada primary was marked by this racial/political divide, with blacks and Hispanics often sitting on opposite sides at meetings and heckling each other. Clinton has heavily pandered to Hispanics, even declaring in Nevada that "no woman is illegal."
"I have been proud to manage this campaign, and prouder still to call Hillary my friend for more than sixteen years. I know that she will make a great President," Solis said in a letter sent to campaign staff. "This has already been the longest Presidential campaign in the history of our nation, and one that has required enormous sacrifices from all of us and our families."
Clinton made the mistake of taking black support for herself, as the wife of "the first black president" for granted.
Solis Doyle is an "anchor baby." Her parents both hail from Mexico, and her father Santiago was an illegal immigrant who was deported twice. Because of America's twisted immigration laws, children born to immigrants ("anchor babies"), legal or otherwise, are automatically US citizens.
