Matthews: "When I think of people who come to this country from other countries - they speak Spanish-Puerto Rico which is not another country, but is the common wealth. Hardest working people, they're extremely entrepreneurial if it's just owning a flower shop, it's owning a small business-a bodega-right?

Puerto Ricans come to this country to start business. Cubans certainly come here to start businesses. The hardest working people in the United States are people who just got here from Mexico-the first day they get here. Everybody knows they don't want a big social democracy. They want free enterprise and entrepreneurialism don't they?

Mayor Villaraigosa: I think what they want-

Matthews: They sound like they are natural republicans to me.

Mayor Villaraigosa: I think what they want is the American dream and are willing to work for it...

So being hard working and wanting to get a head in the world to Chris Matthews is only a Republican ideal. I almost forgot how the Minutemen feel about Mexicans all of a sudden.
