Is it not an incredible thing to see Mitt Romney, who is running to govern everyone in our country, speak at the NAACP?

Was it not the most pathetic attempt this election cycle to see his sole purpose of going there to get video of himself standing up to the African American people in order to throw red meat video clips to the Racist Right Wing of his party?! This is Sad, Pathetic Anti-American on many levels and not inline with true American Values!

Romney Naacp Speech

Romney’s ‘Free Stuff’ Speech Is a New Low | Matt Taibbi | Rolling Stone.

Wow. If you live long enough, you’ll see some truly gross things in politics, but Mitt Romney’s work this past week “courting black support” was enough to turn even the strongest stomach.

Romney really showed us something in his luridly self-congratulating N.A.A.C.P. gambit, followed by the awesomely disgusting “free stuff” post-mortem speech he delivered the next night in front of friendlier audiences. The twin appearances revealed the candidate to be not merely unlikable, and not merely a fatuous, unoriginal hack of a politician, but also a genuinely repugnant human being, a grasping corporate hypocrite with so little feel for how to get along with people that he has to dream up elaborate schemes just to try to pander to the mob.
