Mitt Romney went to the NAACPs National Convention planning to get booed. It was no mistake. House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi told Bloomberg TV she believes it was a calculated move on his part to get booed at the NAACP convention. When Romney called the Affordable Care Act Obamacare, he purposely used a term that would not work with the audience in the room. When he said, If you want a President wholl make things better in the African-American community, you are looking at him. Take a look! he was virtually taunting them the way a pro wrestler whos playing a villain eggs on the crowd saying things he knows will elicit boos. Why would he bother going to the NAACP convention to get booed? Because the real audience wasnt in the room. He wanted to be booed by that black audience so that white conservatives who still dont see him as one of them and white undecideds would see that hes unafraid to talk down to black people, to offend them, to be their villain, to make them boo. The result is that he comes off looking tough or gains sympathy. Either way, he gets a soundbite that will bounce through the cable news echo chamber and elicit an emotional reaction from white voters. Romneys performance wasnt intended to win more black votes, it was intended to help win more white votes.

All part of the Dem playbook, and these articles should be shoved down their throats right now. The standard attack plan. This year they are missing the war on women, because Bill Clinton happens to be a rapist and the story line was backfiring.
The Democrats have called EVERY Republican candidate in my lifetime a racist!
Democrats(The REAL party of Racism) have been calling Republicans racist for as long as I can remember and they get away with it EVERY SINGLE TIME..til now..NO WAY would Clinton be doing this if she were leading by 10+ points NO WAY there would be no point in doing it..she would just sit back in her hospital bed and wait til election day..I believe the polls REALLY show that either Trump is winning or he is very very close..and liberals GREATEST fear is losing black vote that is what they fear most..not owning blacks anymore
I was reading this thing, wondering about the adolescent-paranoia thing running through it, and said to myself, "Is this an adult magazine or a school newspaper?" (Do they still have school newspapers?)
Then I saw the byline, and I said, "Oh, why didn't you tell me? That light-skinned guy with Black Privilege in his 'tude and helium in his loafers." Right?
Of course romney accepted the framing that he was a racist with no retort.
Romney no balls
