    lol

    Romney is seeing how successful The Donald has been appealing to "that" wing of the party so he's decided to up the ante.

    In context it was not racist.

    I do believe he saw people trying to make it a racist comment so he assured he wanted people to know how he meant it.

    who gives a shit? This political correctness is getting out of hand. Anyone with an ounce of fucking sense knows that Romney is not a racist.

    Doesn't seem racist to me.

    Hanging an albatross around someone's neck isn't a racist term. That is what is being referred to here.

    That would have been vertually impossible.
