Video: Carney: Obama's outreach to Hispanics like Eva Longoria is 'pure, cynical politicking' 

Media Matters has highlighted a clip of Washington Examiner senior political columnist Timothy P. Carney's retort to Newsweek's Eleanor Clift on The McLaughlin Group over the weekend.

When asked about President Obama's latest outreach to Hispanic voters, Carney had this to say:

I don't think he's trying to work at all with Republicans. He didn't invite Jan Brewer. He didn't invite Texas Governor Rick Perry to the White House to talk about immigration. . . who did he invite to talk about immigration at the White House? Rosario Dawson and Eva Longoria. He brought in actresses. He's not serious about this. He wants to set up a debate and induce Republicans into arguing against immigration, then call them racists and push himself up to 40 percent of the Hispanic vote. It's, it's pure, cynical politicking. He has no interest in real solutions.
