Human weather vane Mitt Romney had a well-planned and wildly successful reverse "Sister Souljah" moment today at the NAACP Convention in Houston. His promise to repeal "Obamacare" drew the desired amount of ire from the mostly African American crowd but Romney loved the hostile reaction because his goal was not to win over the NAACP crowd, but to assure the Tea Party wing of the GOP that lazy Negros wouldn't get free health care under his watch.
The reaction to Romney's "Obamacare" comments so dominated the cable news world today that little or no attention was paid to what Mr. Romney said immediately after the crowd quited.
Straying slightly from his prepared remarks Romney promised a massive redistribution of wealth from the rich to the poor.
Romney's speechwriters wrote the following:
I will work to reform and save Medicare and Social Security, in part by means-testing their benefits.
Romney went off script and actually said:
... in part by means-testing their benefits meaning higher benefits for lower income people and lower benefits for higher income folks."
The same mouth-breathing, knuckle-dragging morons that would prefer a President Charles Manson over Barack Obama, because the president is a socialist, Marxist, Kenyan anti-colonialist who is hell-bent on redistributing the wealth from the rich to the poor are going to nominate Mitt Romney?
Romney just announced that he will take the $730 billion annual Social Security payments, take a big chunk of it from the rich and give it to the poor, and the people that despise demon-seed Barack Obama for wanting to redistribute the wealth don't give a shit?
So why is Obama's proposed redistrtibution heinous but Romney's is acceptable? Why is "Obamacare" the beginning of armegeddon but "Romneycare" was a good state solution?
Maybe some of these folks are still pissed off that Barack Obama forgot the rule: "A black man can work in the Oval Office as long as he's the butler."
