NAACP Cool Toward Romney's Overtures

Quote:
Republican White House hopeful Mitt Romney drew loud boos Wednesday when he pledged to repeal President Barack Obama's health law in a speech to the country's largest civil rights organization.

The presumptive Republican presidential nominee pulled few punches in delivering a variation on his standard stump speech to the annual NAACP convention, enduring sustained boos when he vowed to overturn "Obamacare."

The unfriendly reception continued when Mr. Romney told the crowd, "If you want a president who will make things better in the African-American community, you are looking at him."

You may of missed a few of my posts recently, and I won't speak for the other... I see a voting block where 90% of the block continues to vote for abject failure, who can't stand on they're own 2 legs without .gov.

So I don't give a ... that the NAACP boos a party that offers something more then the enslavement they continue to vote for.

Its' very simple.

I give Romney credit for going into a known hostile territory and making his case.

I wouldn't expect anything different. That isn't even news.

News would be if someone told the NAACP they are racialist hustlers... who sell out for .gov, and a meager promise of the same…. that would be news. I can only hope Hispanics don’t go down the same failed, abject failure policies. It’s laughable to listen to “the help” we have given… but then one only needs to look at the stats… a voting block so enslaved in misery, that it should be shamed for the abject failure that it is… and has been… with a track record spanning MANY years.

No, the NAACP is a racialist organization, who supports "race" as key factor in policy. This practice is part of "class" agenda policy to segregate people… and one ideology continues to promote this… Modern Liberalism... which the NAACP supports... at 90% of the votting block.

You mean this one?

Romney Receives Standing Ovations from National Association of Rich White People
Candidate Wows NARWP Annual Meeting


JULY 11, 2012
GRAND CAYMAN (The Borowitz Report) – What a difference a day makes.

One day after being booed at the NAACP annual meeting in Houston, Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney received multiple standing ovations at the meeting of the National Association of Rich White People.

It was tough sledding for Mr. Romney the day before, when he struck the wrong chord by telling the NAACP members: “I love Black people. I’m good friends with the bankers who foreclosed on your homes.”

But the former Massachusetts governor seemed to regain his footing in front of the NARWP, who held their annual meeting on the island of Grand Cayman, home to much of Mr. Romney’s money.

“People who say the top 1% run America are dead wrong. It’s the top .0001%,” Mr. Romney said, bringing the NARWP members to their feet.

The Republican’s speech, which was interrupted by twenty-seven standing ovations, featured proposals that were hugely popular with the NARWP faithful, as Mr. Romney favored legalizing marriage between a man and a corporation, as well as an extension of white truffle season.

“Mitt Romney is worth his weight in gold,” said billionaire David Koch, who attended the meeting, “and that’s exactly what I paid for him.”
