Boo


Ohhhhh you disrespectful negroes! Mitt Romney spoke to the NAACP yesterday.....He failed to alter his script!  He offered no solution other than he could do better than President Obama and that if elected , he'd repeal Obamacare....He was met with a torrent of boos from the crowd... I heard that he allegedly shipped in his own African -American contingent and scattered them throughout the crowd and that even they couldn't help him out...

I imagine that even some of them were saying- "Mannn please."  See, that 'Repeal Obamacare " plays well in
the south and amongst the Republican faithful...It doesn't play well with the Brothers and sisters...He might have fared better if he hadn't of mentioned President Obama's name at all!

Ohhhhh you disrespectful negroes!

"If our goal is jobs, we have to stop spending over a trillion dollars more than we take in every year. So to do that, I'm going to eliminate every non-essential, expensive program I can find. That includes Obamacare, and I'm going to work to reform and save -- " Romney said, being interrupted by boos.
Mister Romney otherwise encountered polite applause in his speech, which hit on themes of jobs and the economy -- mainstays of the presumptive Republican presidential nominee's overall stump speech -- as well as education reform. That was from the African-Americans he allegedly shipped in.

The former Massachusetts governor faced an uphill task politically in speaking before the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), one of the most historic and well-established civil rights groups. President Barack Obama, as the nation's first black president, enjoys tremendous levels of support and enthusiasm from black voters, who helped propel Barrack Obama to office in 2008 in key swing states.

An obviously uncomfortable Mitt Romney joked about the fact that he's unlikely to win over many African American voters. (That's no joke, that's a fact!) "I appreciate the chance to speak first -- even before Vice President Biden gets his turn tomorrow," he said. "I just hope the Obama campaign won’t think you’re playing favorites."

(Crickets!)


But the speech, overall, was intended to portray his candidacy as one for all Americans, unified by a theme of improving the economy. Mitt Romney pledged to return to speak before the NAACP at its convention next year, should he be elected. I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for that!

Mitt Romney also spoke with reverence toward the legacy of his father, Michigan Gov. George Romney, a Republican who broke with his party at times over the issue of civil rights.

"For every one of us a particular person comes to mind, someone who set a standard of conduct and made us better by their example. For me, that man is my father, George Romney," he said, detailing some of his father's work to advance civil rights.

Ahhh Politicians....They can come out of their hat with certain things at just the right time can't they?

Uphill battle is correct. I'm sure Romney understood there was nothing he could say that would appeal to African-American voters, but I will give the man a B-minus for making an attempt to "act" as if he cared anything about Blacks.
