    Standing up at the NAACP and declaring he doesn't care about black people might win him some votes, but so what? It loses him a lot more.
    How do you figure it loses him more?  These people were not going to vote for Romney.  I didn't spot Alan West or Clarence Thomas in the audience.

    The only thing it does is get some of the stupider racists in his base to say "Whut?  He ain't as askeered of them libs as ah thawt.  Ah thank ah'll put down mah jug uv corn likker lawng enuff to go vote fer that feller.  Maw, where's muh white suit, yew know, thuh wun with the hood?"

    Because stupid people are so sure they're smart, they often act smart, and sometimes even smart people are too stupid to recognize that the stupid people acting smart really ARE stupid.

        how that performance helps him with suburban women and white moderates.

        Okay, I'll admit I'm stupid.

        •  it hurts Romney with that group (0+ / 0-)

          which is my point: it ain't brilliant politics to try and run a narrow campaign in the general.
