After NAACP Booing, Romney says; "Black people WILL vote for me."
After his speech at the convention today, Romney said he connected with black leaders in private and was assured that the relentless booing he received in response to promising to repeal the health care reform law did not represent the feelings of all African Americanvoters, even if they can’t say so in public.
Hi blah people! I’m Mitt.
According to Mitt, he has a secret African American voter base no one knows about.
“I spoke with a number of African-American leaders after the event and they said, you know, a lot of folks do not want to say they will not vote for President Obama but they are disappointed in his lack of policies to improve the schools,” Romney told Fox, according to a rush transcript. “The president has not been able to get the job done and people want to see someone would can get the economy going so I expect to get the African American votes, and at the end of my speech having a standing ovation was generous and hospitable and I believe we disagree on some issues like ‘Obamacare’ on a lot of issues people see eye to eye, they want someone getting the economy going.”
President Obama is now leading Mitt Romney among African-Americans by an overwhelming 92 percent to 6 percent – of course, 90% of them are too afraid to say publicly that they support him, right? Why would that be?
