Wow. Just wow. He actually said that.
 
2012-07-11 02:17:13 PM
well, i guess i have to give him credit for his ability to lie with a straight face and complete lack of morals or shame?

Walker: Wow. Just wow. He actually said that.


No, you see, Romney is under the impression that all blacks are rich rappers, so he's willing to give "all blacks" tax breaks.

I assume Mitt Romney thinks African-Americans had a real cushy lifestyle when they were the legal property of their slaveowners and feudal lords.
 
2012-07-11 02:19:18 PM
I'm sure he thinks they would be perfect replacements for all those illegals he wants thrown out of the agricultural sector in the country. He'd even ensure they had food, shelter, clothing, were looked after and prayed for. They'd never have it so good under him.

The booing was pretty loud when he told them he was going to repeal Obamacare. Why don't black people realize that repealing Obamacare will make things better for them?

What has Obama done for the poor black communities?
 
2012-07-11 02:21:52 PM
His plan to create jobs centers around cutting as many government programs as possible along with the people who are employed by those programs. Bless the poor man and his sweet noggin, he really does think you can create jobs with lay-offs and outsourcing.

I was impressed that he could recover after that one. Though it was painfully clear how much they were just being polite and tolerating his presence.

Loved the balls he had to call out Obama on not talking at that convention.

"if you understood who I truly am in my heart, and if it were possible to fully communicate what I believe is in the real, enduring best interest of African-American families, you would vote for me for president."

This guy is the worst campaigner in political history.
Or he's just an elitist who thinks he's entitled to be president because he said so.

/probably both.

You know, Mitt, in actuality, those things are ENTIRELY farkING POSSIBLE!!! It may be beyond comprehension for an opportunistic douche such as yourself, but in the real world, it is entirely possible to let someone know how you truly feel about an issue.

Isn't he the one who said "I don't care about making black people's lives better?" Oh, no wait. He said "I don't care about making blah people's lives better."

There are statements in our literature by the early brethren which we have interpreted to mean that the Negroes would not receive the priesthood in mortality. I have said the same things, and people write me letters and say, "You said such and such, and how is it now that we do such and such?" And all I can say to that is that it is time disbelieving people repented and got in line and believed in a living, modern prophet. Forget everything that I have said, or what President Brigham Young or President George Q. Cannon or whomsoever has said in days past that is contrary to the present revelation. We spoke with a limited understanding and without the light and knowledge that now has come into the world.... We get our truth and our light line upon line and precept upon precept. We have now had added a new flood of intelligence and light on this particular subject, and it erases all the darkness and all the views and all the thoughts of the past. They don't matter any more.... It doesn't make a particle of difference what anybody ever said about the Negro matter before the first day of June of this year.

Must be nice to have a religion where you can just declare a Mulligan and start over again without ever looking back and questioning why you used to do things that way.

His audience at the NAACP meeting laughed at him when he said that. They thought it was a pretty good joke.

"It wasn't just that my dad helped write the civil rights provision for the Mass - excuse me - Michigan Constitution, though he did," Romney said. "It wasn't just that he helped create Michigan's first civil rights commission, or that as governor he marched for civil rights in Detroit - though he did those things, too. More than these public acts, it was the kind of man he was, and the way he dealt with every person, black or white. He was a man of the fairest instincts, and a man of faith who knew that every person was a child of God."

Riding the coattails of his poppa, is he?

Today between 12:20 and 12:30 Rush Limbaugh was talking about Romney getting booed while speaking at the NAACP. He comments on how 'white' Romney sounded while speaking to the NAACP, where Obama changed they way he spoke to sound like them. Then he proceeds to do a 'blackface' interpretation of how Obama sounded.

Did anyone hear that, or get it recorded and have a link? Whenever I get a chance to listen to him I keep thinking that I can't believe he said that, but never see any followup outrage.

Granted, He is the conservative counterpart to Howard Stern (or at least what Howard Stern was 15 years ago). So any publicity for him is probably better for him than sinking into irrelevance. Perhaps it is better this stuff just slides on by.

You may think that your government has failed you. You may think that your government has screwed you over. You need a candidate who's going to tell you the truth and I'm not going to lie to you.

We're going to eliminate the government budget for lube in order to give tax cuts to me and my friends.

I think you posted the wrong link...you referred to a teleprompter and I saw Mitt Romney. We all know that only Obama uses teleprompters and would stumble without one.

Seriously. He needs to fire his entire campaign staff and anyone else giving him advice. I can't believe the campaign thought it was a good idea for him to talk to the NCAA. CNN and MSNBC are going to run those boo clips every chance they get.

It can't be all that hard. Even Carter ran better than 14% unemployment in the black community.

Oh...I forgot...using a teleprompter is bad only when a black man does it.

TheGreatGazoo: What has Obama done for the poor black communities?


Based on their reaction to Romney's statement that he would eliminate Obamacare, one could very easily conclude that this audience thinks PPACA helps them. That one should have been a freebie; you didn't need anything except the attached article to come up with it.

I would also say that repealing the upper-end of the Bush tax cuts while keeping the low-end would be an obvious one. Also the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act.

Again, these are just the completely obvious ones. I'm sure someone could come up with a much more exhaustive list if they were interested. Given that Romney is promising them nothing but empty platitudes, though, I think that should be enough.

FTA: ""While we are glad that Governor Romney recognized the power of the black electorate, he laid out an agenda that was antithetical to many of our interests," said NAACP President Benjamin Todd Jealous in a statement. "

This statement is true for every instance where Romney is speaking to people that are not worth millions of dollars.
