    Today, GOP nominee Mitt Romney who honored the NAACP in Houston with his presence was booed silly. While the governor was booed for opposing Obamacare (aka revised Romneycare) and VoterID Law, the governor received standing ovation for supporting traditional marriage from attendees of NAACP's 103rd Annual Convention in Space City - Romney faces NAACP, booed for hitting 'Obamacare' | Fox News



    I thought it was mighty nice and brave of the GOP nominee, Mitt Romney, to have attended the NAACP Convention and share his views, while extending a hand of friendship to the NAACP. I am of the opinion that it takes a person of character to stand in front of opposition and express his/her opposing views unafraid.

    He got less boo's than I would have expected, and a whole lot more Cheers than I expected. He also got a standing O when he was Done.

    Not bad all around.

    Will it change many of their Minds, Nah, But at least he had the balls to do it.

    Mehhh... he knew what he was getting into.


    Personally, I might have ignored them and not spoke at their black power meeting.... but imagine the grief he would get if he treated them like they the bunch of racists they are.

    I think it showed goodwill, to his guests who heard him out, especially considering that Obama doesn't plan to speak to them himself and is sending Vice President Biden instead.....:badgrin:

    It was a positive rather than a negative, for Romney to attend and give them his time and his intentions, and that the crowd gave him a standing ovation, shows that others share my view...

    Obviously, Romney went there to get "boos" and insult a room full of blacks and it worked. Red meat to the Republican base. Finally, Republicans can quit saying it's not about race.

    Why should Obama speak to them? It's not their vote he's worried about...

    I have no problem with that, the attendees want obamacare so they voiced their opinion the way they could, they didn't yell epithets etc....fine by me.
