Romney Stepped Into the Firing Range to Address the NAACP Convention
Matt | On 17, Jul 2012
Mitt Romney put himself on a limb last week when he delivered a speech to the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.
The historic civil rights organization, better known as the NAACP, hosted Romney as one of their speakers for their convention. President Obama was noticeable absent from the event, drawing criticism from some.
It was a brave move for Romney because there were few ways for him to walk away from the speech “successfully.” Neither he nor his party have been perceived as adequately speaking to the issues of the group, or black people as a whole, for quite sometime. I’ll give him an “A” for the attendance effort. lol..
Poor Mitt was so stiff (per his usual) and never connected with the audience. But to be fair to him, he was up against a tough and skeptical crowd. Let’s just say many people in the audience weren’t feeling him. Rumor has it that Romney shipped in some supporters to the event as well to help him hit his applause lines. smh…
ANSWER IN THE COMMENTS SECTION BELOW:
What did you think of Romney’s speech to the NAACP? Do you think President Obama should have taken time to address the group?
