    For Latinos in South Florida on Saturday, it was raining Paul Ryan. Former Florida governor Jeb Bush introduced Ryan to the crowd, joking about the weather: “I need to teach Paul one word in Spanish ... here we call this ‘una aguacera.’ A tropical rainstorm.” Speaking in front of a large crowd at a restaurant in Miami, the Republican VP candidate attacked President Obama for his more open stance on relations with Cuba, saying, “In a Mitt Romney administration, we will not keep practicing this policy of appeasement. We will be tough on Castro ... that’s the right policy for our country.” The GOP’s latest attempt to court Latino voters in Florida comes less than a week after a controversial video of Romney leaked that showed the candidate remarking, “Had [my father] been born of Mexican parents, I’d have a better shot of winning this.”
