Dear Madame L,
I know you've written that you support Pres. Obama's re-election, but aren't you appalled at the way the members of the NAACP booed former Gov. Romney at their recent conference?
No, Madame L is not appalled at that, but she does thank you for throwing her that soft pitch.
It is apparent that Mitt Romney was not really speaking to the members of the NAACP at that conference, but to his conservative Republican and Tea Party base.
Did you watch a clip of his response to the booing? He smiled. He loved it. He was reassuring the racists, among others, that he was in their camp.
Here's the part of the speech where he was booed:
Here's some of the response from NAACP and other African American leaders:
And here's what Candidate Romney said later in response to the unfavorable responses to his demeaning and insulting pokes at his audience:
“Remind them of this: If they want more stuff from government, tell them to go vote for the other guy—more free stuff. But don’t forget, nothing is really free.”
Does that sound like a candidate who is really trying to win the votes of an audience, or someone who is poking them with a stick?
