    •  Obvious photo-op (3+ / 0-)

      And an obvious attempt to show he's "hip" to the African-American community by quoting a 10 year old (at the time) novelty rap song.  Romney is a politician for the 1% and opportunistic attempts to relate to anyone else should be mocked.  Like Newt and his "food stamp" comments, they are quite nauseating.  It's quite telling when Obama had to give a speech on race in 2008 when running for president, however no GOP candidate offers to.  It is an accepted reality that the GOP don't and won't appeal to African-American voters.  Even GOP candidates like Allan West and Herman Cain don't and won't do it.

        they brag that they'll go to the NAACP and call black people lazy to their faces.

        I want to limit the power of government. Specifically, I want to limit the power of government to create artificial superpeople and give them the same rights as human beings.

      •  What I meant was the ancient insult of (0+ / 0-)

        comparing human beings to animals.  Mitt's obvious reaction was that he felt that he in an uncontrolled "dog" pack.
        The people were not an uncontrolled bunch of animals but, you could see the discomfort all over Mitt in being in such close proximity of too many Black people.  It was literally a unconscious racist reaction "barking" at them.
        Obvious photo-op and he obviously couldn't get out of there soon enough.
