And do not forget the grandchild controversy this last week. It will surely come up. When asked if he forgives the idiots who made fun of his newest grandchild my answer would be a very forceful “No”.
Chris Wallace is asking Romney about his grandchild and I’m going to tell a little story here.
First, well I got a sense of humor. The little black child in the middle of all those white people, well it does bemuse, but only in a positive, loving way, as nice people would see it.
My brother has a daughter who has THREE very, very obviously African-American children. They aren’t adopted, I know that, and unfortunately I don’t associate with my brother often save on Facebook. He lives very far away.
But they are three of the prettiest children, and nice...well my niece puts up pics and anecdotes about them and I’m impressed by how well they are doing.
You got to know that my family....heh, very Irish....ask my cousin Kabar....all McLaughlins got blue eyes and very white skin.
I smile every time I see those three children cause, come on, they DO stand out.
Now my Motherinlaw, lives in Mass, very liberal, thinks I am a stinking Conservative. On a hoot one day I sent her pics of my three great nieces and nephew with a note: “THESE ARE MY BROTHER’S GRANDCHILDREN”.
Thus I can understand the smile cause come on, the Romney family is as white as the McLaughlins. the darker child stand out and a smile is not out of line.
Now I know that babe on MSNBC is a loser-burger, just wanted to poke fun in keeping with that network’s policy of calling everyone but themselves racists.
My MIL wrote me back with just the biggest smile, imagine, ME, the teabagger, with black great nieces and nephews....snort snort.
I don’t care, they’re beautiful kids.
MSNBC be damned.
My response would be “I understand this woman works for MSNBC and, during my campaign, hung tampons from her ears to demonstrate her support for my opponent. Not only did that act misrepresent my positions during the campaign - I think it shows how mentally challenged some people are with the facts on that channel.”
