I sound fat: whidbey: Romney shouldn't have even spoke before the NAACP.

It's pretty clear that no self-respecting person of color would vote for him. He might as well own it.

woo. yet ANOTHER farker expressing the opinion that Black people have no individuality and are unable to think for themselves. Another stating that no black person is able to look past the color of another man's skin in judging the content of his character. Not picking on you, this thread is full of this logic.

I, like Romney, tend to see them as fellow human beings capable of actual independent thought, capable of making their own decisions. Apparently, you, like Obama, see them as property of the Democratic party who will do as expected no matter what. Where WAS Obama, was he too BUSY to address this gathering, or was he just assuming that they cant see past the color of Romney's skin long enough to consider voting for him?

How do you sleep at night with all this racist hatred in you hearts, libs?


This is one of those posts we rate on a scale from 1-10, right?

... are conservatives illiterate? Some of the right-wingers here have so completely not read TFA, I think they somehow managed to un-read it. Their ignorance of it nullified a Farker who did read TFA, and erased it from their mind.

I know they all look alike to you, but the point of the story was that lifetime members of the NAACP noticed a conveniently timed surge of new faces at one of their meetings.

Lt. Cheese Weasel: So Romney hired black people to boo him so as to disenfranchise black people and garner support from white people but the black people he hired then stood and cheered at the end of the speech, so it's obvious those weren't REAL black people and now white people hate him and Romney is loved by REAL black people for disenfranchising the white people. It's a clever plan. But the white community isn't going to stand for these shenannigans and will not vote for Obama because he loves white people who hate those black people but love REAL black people

Liberal derp is farking amazing.

Give it up man... you don't have a clue what liberals believe. The FACT (which is true whether you choose to believe it or not) is that most blacks vote Democratic... why? Because Republicans adopted the Southern Strategy and embraced the more racist elements of our population. Most people will not vote for someone whom they know discriminates against them.

... but do carry on, you willfully ignorant ass.

liberals believe they can speak for the entire black population and tell us what they think and how they feel and what's best for them.

Why? Just take the money and then don't cheer for him. Unless the guy doesn't pay up front and has some way of knowing who cheered and didn't cheer, there's no reason you can't take his money AND avoid compromising your values.

The assertion is that Romney attempted to stack the deck by bringing in people who would cheer for him no matter what and that those people aren't members or supporters of the NAACP, in order to make it appear that the NAACP supported him.

It's also awesome how you answered your own question in order to play the race card, though.
