Romney speaks to NAACP

Here is the video of Mitt Romney's address to the NAACP today. Got applause several times but got booed when he mentioned Obamacare. Good move to go to what was probably close to a 100% Obama crowd.

He did what he had to do. Otherwise, his absence would have been red meat to the media. Even more newsworthy will be the ever-angry-assed loud-mouth Schmoe Biden's frothing at the mouth today on the same stage. I expect Biden to claim both his parents were poor and mixed-race.

I can't imagine why ANY white person would address that collection of "whitey hating" buffoons..

Like Romney or not it took some guts to speak to a hostile crowd like the one gathered. Can you see O, or any Democrat for that matter, speaking to some predominately Republican crowd?

6:38 am...while I'm quite sure that you see anyone who disagrees with you as a " buffoon" ( no doubt because you have contributed so much to society and are a scholar of renown), could you explain the difference in a " whitey hater " and any other racist so we can better define " buffoon"?

Shadowfax said...

That the group is composed predominantly of persons who view white people with a good measure of disdane cannot be disputed, 8:14. Whether they are all buffoons is doubtful. I don't think ANY group is composed solely of buffoons. Unless maybe it's a group composed of Jackson, Sharpton and one other racist.

The difference between a 'white hater' and some other type of racist is that the former dislikes white people. Do you need that explained, really?

Any group formed and perpetuated with the stated intent of advancing their race ('Advancement of Colored People) obviously does so to the exclusion of or at least at the expense of another or others. Is that unclear to you?

Listening to all the talking heads on every station early this morning, it is my conclusion that there was pretty much 100% agreement that Romney exhibited bravery for wading into unfriendly waters. Liberals and conservatives alike drew that summary. Black as well as white reached the same conclusion. That's not a racist statement; only a factual one.

I think he was right for attending and addressing the audience. He did a good job, didn't run and hide from what could be perceived as an audience that’s not 100% behind you, and he spoke about what he stands for. Took balls and that was the right way to go.

Note that Obama won't be addressing them at all. It's Biden.

Thanks a joke right!!If you are not espousing that white is holding you back, then the NAACP aint listening!

When Liberals label the NAACP, namely Cornell West, a "hateful group" you have to wonder why they have any mainstream credibility.

Romney did show courage.

25 seconds is not representative of an hour. There was more applause than boos.

This is mountain out of molehill stuff and more indicative of the sorry state of news these days than anything else.

If anything, Romney's advisors dropped the ball by not telling him that calling the bill " Obamacare" is use of a buzz word that wouldn't play well in this group.

Most people don't really understand the ramifications of Obama care and what it is going to visit on all citizens of this country. My insurance premium almost doubled, but it is reliable insurance, but others were forced to go with inferior insurance companies because their good insurance mandated it. By the time the true horror is known by all, it will be too late. Obama won't care, because if reelected he will begin to REALLY show his true motives.

Romney is a nice man, but he cannot even begin to fight the machine that will do WHATEVER it takes to reelect Obama. Just my opinion, but Romney was admirable to speak to the NAACP, knowing he was against an impenetrable hostile racist wall.
Romney could never understand the evil tactics that will be used to keep Obama in office.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
