Guess Who?

Guess who these two women are listening to.  Would you be surprised it's Mitt Romney addressing the NAACP convention?

Nobody would, least of all Romney.  While some in the media were giving him "credit" for showing up, it was clearly not some honest and courageous effort to win African American votes but a ploy to show the Grand Old White Peoples' Party that he's on their side.  He told them he would repeal "Obamacare," and let the boos go on, since reportedly he knew the term itself was going to be booed. Later referring to this audience he said that if they want more stuff from government they should vote for Obama.  This wasn't dog whistle race politics.  This was loud and clear.

Meanwhile, if you think things are bad now, catch Rachel's opening segment Wednesday on the Bush-Cheney years, as Romney tries to distance himself from them while preparing to attend a multi-milliondollar fundraiser at the home of, and hosted by, the Dick himself, v.p. Cheney.  It also concerns a scary bad Washington Post story.
