Wow. I’ll just leave this (turd in the punch bowl) here for your consideration. Read the whole posting.
Romney went to the event in order to essentially present himself as the plantation owner talking down to the slaves who should feel honored that he deigned to even speak to them as if they actually deserved his attention. He WANTED to be booed, have it captured on film, and then use that to show how THOSE PEOPLE disrespected him due to his color.
And in order to convince the white television audience (Who would be hearing of the event after the fact on the news.) that he was genuine in his desire to reach out to the poor, less fortunate black folk, he sprinkled a few of his own throughout the audience to clap and cheer for him.
You know just when I think I have seen the most disgusting display of dirty politics imaginable, the Republicans demonstrate there are no depths to which they will NOT sink to in order to win an election. Whether it be suggesting that John McCain’s adopted daughter was really the result of an interracial affair, creating voter ID laws to keep minorities from voting, or even outright stealing an election, there is quite literally NOTHING that is too sleazy for this political party.
