while living in Cleveland, OH. for over 50 years worked with and had many black friends..husband did as well and so did our kids, and now that the kids are adults they have black friends that they work with, live by and socialize with...
and I did stay tuned and I thought Ryan walked down a few steps and shook hands with the front row...I did not notice him turn around and greet the folks on stage...maybe I was not watching close enough!!! what ever...
Only those running the rally would’ve been in charge of “planting” them there.
It isn’t possible to wander in off the street, unknown to anyone in authority at the rally, and sit behind the speaker.
Someone known to the rally organizers knows these people you speak of.
The woman’s behavior sounds unusual at a rally, and especially with a front row seat. I’m not doubting it, as I didn’t see the rally and take your word for it.
It’s just that there’s no doubt they were there on purpose, not acidentally, and that those in charge were responsible for it.
Perhaps there’s a good explanation for what she did, if we only knew it.
There are many black people who are going public with their negative assessment of Obama and the Dem Party.
Another one I didn’t see mentioned here, is former Virginia Gov. Douglas Wilder. He is now helping the Romney/Ryan ticket, and he was critical of what Joe Biden said the other day.
That happens on both sides. Modern politics is full of manufactured and phoney crap like this. Makes me wanna hurl. I would love to see our guys get out there and deliver the goods without the phoney backdrop and assorted crapola.
I truly understand. The after-speech handshaking was hard to follow. So...many folks were pressing to touch Paul Ryan. it was hard to follow. In addition, the secret service was really doing a good job today in protecting Ryan, but letting him greet his fans. There were a number of Black American SS folks protecting Ryan.....and I was deeeply impressed as to how focused they were. It’s like they sense, our country needs this team badly. Getting hopeful, for all Americans!!!
By the way, catch the action Saturday morning at the “Villages” located in Central Florida. Should be quite the rally and campaign stop for Paul Ryan!!!
