Romney Plays The Race Card (MSM called Romney a racist in 2012, Same'ole Same'ole)
Time ^ | July 12, 2012 | Toure

Mitt Romney went to the NAACP’s 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 who’ll 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 who’s 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 wasn’t in the room. He wanted to be booed by that black audience so that white conservatives — who still don’t see him as one of them — and white undecideds would see that he’s 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. Romney’s performance wasn’t intended to win more black votes, it was intended to help win more white votes.

Go back and look up how many times the MSM called Romney a racist in the 2012 election. It's incredible. Some MSM skells were just saying the other day how they miss Romney. Except back then in 2012 he was just another white racist.

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.

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?

Romney's such a putz, his race card should be confiscated the next time he tries to use it.
I'm sorry Mr. Romney, but it says here I have to take your card and destroy it.  You'll have to call the issing party.
