  •  I think her REAL objection was not the adoption, (0+ / 0-)

    but the suspicion that it was intended to be a publicity stunt by the Romneys.  As in, "some of my best friends are black" amplified to "one of my grandchildren is black."

    Perhaps she realized it sounded too harsh, and is willing to give them the benefit of the doubt as to the reason for adopting this child.  Hopefully, even if they did initially mean it as "tokenism," they will grow to lover her as a real daughter and granddaughter, and the question will be moot.
