Mitt Romney 'deliberately got booed by the NAACP to appeal to white racist
Mail Online ^ | 12 July 2012 | Toby Harnden

The Romney campaign has been accused of deliberately getting the Republican presidential candidate booed by black people during his NAACP speech to attract votes 'in certain racist precincts', by MSNBC host Lawrence O'Donnell.

Romney was booed for 15 seconds at the National Association for the Advancement of Coloured People conference in Houston on Wednesday when he stated he would 'eliminate' unnecessary programmes like the Obamacare health reform.

Democrats united in saying that Romney planned to get booed to appeal to his conservative base. But O'Donnell and his guests went a step further by saying that Romney was making a play for white racists.

On the one hand it must be asked from what funny farm does MSNBC recruit its talking heads.

But, otoh, if Romney is that really clever he certainly ought be elected President since obviously he will do a bang up job.

Maybe he deliberately got booed for the NAACP to appeal to black racists!

This story about Romney getting booed is totally blown out of proportion. It should be a non-story. I hate the mainstream media.

It's one thing to believe in private that Romney was somehow reaching out to racists. It's entirely something else to go public with those beliefs on a national talk show.

Do these people realize how utterly shameless and idiotic they sound?

The sad part is that O’Donnell’s race baiting and hateful comments about the entire Mormon Church get reported as if they make sense! These people in the media are truly evil and are not constrained by any notion of right and wrong.

Rush claimed that Romney received a standing ovation at the end of his remarks.

But that is a moot point. The news blurb on this story played the sound byte of Romney getting booed.

It really doesn’t matter what Romney or Obama say or do. What really matters is what the news services say they do.

Rush and everybody else are in the noise.

Romney deliberately got himself booed at the NAACP? Wow, wow, wow. This is beyond reaching for an explanation. This is so far beyond stupid, they can’t even catch a bus back to stupid.

Yes, after campaigning against Obama-care all year, I guess Romney was supposed to tell the racists at the NAACP that he was for it or not even bring it up. Conservatives would never find out. Probably the biggest issue of the whole campaign, and Romney was not supposed to tell the audience how he felt about the issue. Or he should have lied about it.

Now just imagine the headlines if Romney had winked at the audience and told them he was actually for Obama-care. The same libs would be screaming about what a hypocrite Romney was, and that he was a liar who would dismantle Obama-care as soon as he got into office. Sometimes you have to question the sanity of libs.

I was taken aback when I heard a radio news report that Romney said that what he would say in his speech had the black’s “best interests in mind.” That really sounded patronizing to me. Does he really want to project to minorities that “Romney Knows Best?”

It doesn’t take much to offend the NAALCP and make them boo.

Obviously Reid and Pelosi, for whatever reason, neglected to instruct Clayburn and his NAACP underlings how to react to Romney's comments

Yeah, probably he promited people $20 each if they would boo him.

They probably think his speech should have been: one-third telling them what a wonderful organization NAACP is, one-third saying the election of Obama in 2008 was one of the greatest events in world history, and one-third attacking his own church for its past racial record.

The left is in full-throated panic! They know that Dear Leader is standing in a big puddle of caca and neither he nor his apologists have the shoes for it. He now has a record and it is abysmal. And the left knows it. Its going to be an ugly, divisive, and dirty campaign. All they have are lies, lies, and more lies. They’re becoming a parody of themselves ....

So this moron O’Donnell is saying that the black people at the NAACP are so stupid that they willing went along with Romney’s “plan” and booed so as to help him win white racist votes? Is O’Donnell really that silly and stupid or is this just normal MSM help for Obama?

Liberal democrats always accuse the innocent of the dirty deeds that democrats themselves are guilty of.
