Romney is going to make pitch to black voters at NAACP’s annual meeting. How do you think that will go?

Recent polling reveals Romney has virtually no hope of making major inroads with the black community before this November
Not well!
Swimmingly!!
Mitt Romney is committed to competing in the black community despite the odd
I don’t believe the black community will buy what Romney is selling
Romney’s plan to produce more jobs for African-Americans is to put them to work those farmer’s fields and other jobs vacated by those illegal aliens.
After Romney privitizes schools, The black childern will become janitors to pay for their schooling.
Romney will explain his voter supression policies to the NAACP

    Blacks vote black no matter how bad their guy is. Marion Barry, Charlie Rangel, Maxine Waters, Jefferson, to name a few. Morals, values, jobs don't appear to be of concern to a lot of blacks.
    There is hope though, when the black churches are saying they have had enough of the
    regime of 0 and his policies.

    Especially if there ARENT ANY. Its just an excuse to suppress non white voters. Period.

    So what you are actually promoting is that minorities are so uninterested or so stupid or so lazy that it is impossible for them to get ID needed to do virtually everything in their lives. As a minority, I find your hypocritical attitude towards us disgusting.

    How in the hell do you get that from what I said? I'm saying that they're using a trumped up charge of "voter fraud" to do everything they can to make it as hard as possible for minorities to vote. The effect is to try to stop the 0.0007% of actual voter fraud they end up suppressing 20% of actual voters. In Florida they would have 20 places to vote with 20 voting machines each in a mostly white neighborhood with no waiting time or anything while in other places there was one or 2 and sometimes 4 or 6 hour wait times. They sent out fliers giving wrong information about where to vote --little Republican tricks like that.

    I say Republican tricks because to this date, ONLY republicans have ever been convicted of election fraud.

    He will have a hard time speaking over the interjections. This is the same way blacks are accustomed to behaving in church. They can't sit there quietly and listen.

    It will go well if Romney gives some specifics about what he's gonna do that will bring a miracle to the US. Despite the global downturn, even in China, who are we going to export to and boost our economy through? If the middle class is getting bashed and only the wealthy are getting richer, who's gonna buy all the products to get the economy moving again? Romney will not be specific: he doesn't know how to turn the economy around and nor does he plan to tackle the deficit (he wants to add $850 bn on to it with tax cuts for everyone).

    Will he say I have decided to stop cutting government jobs? Nope. But since blacks are more representated in govt. jobs than private sector jobs as a percentage, how will that make blacks feel secure since they know many of their jobs are already disappearing?

    I think he may do well since Obama has done NOTHING to help them. The fact that he's willing and wants to talk at the NAACP says much for his character and his concern for all Americans.

    He'll do the right thing and reach out to them, but it's a waste of time.
    They'll respond with a snarky reply like Julian Bond did to Bush.
    They are race baiters and are perfectly content to not wander off the democrap plantation.

    Romney has no soul, no personality and no platform. His only offering is that he is NOT Obama. Some people are in such opposition to Obama, that, that is enough. The simple fact that they could have a different man in the white house is enough. They are prepared to cut off their noses to spite their face.

    Most people who have decided to hate Obama are the same dumb-asses who sat around slack jawed and stupid as Bush made mincemeat out of this economy and encouraged companies to send jobs overseas for TWO terms, but they expect President Obama to get us out in just one term (while working with Republican Senators who vote against him just for the hell of it). Most Blacks understand that to whites you have to be three times better just to be considered 'half' as good. Romney isn't fooling anyone but impatient, rich, stupid or just plain racist voters.

    Good Lord, your rant is full of lies. The Senate is controlled by the Democrats, hence no budget in 3 years. I realize its hard to keep up with the daily talking points of the Democrats. You need to stop telling lies on an open forum. Some of us didn't particularly care for Bush, but Obama is worse. Country before Party Always!

    You're a troll and want to fight with anyone who isn't as narrow in their thinking, racists, short sighted and small minded (as your unsolicited response) shows you are.

    The NAACP is a rough call, but all Blacks do not favor President Obama! Romney has a good shot a reaching them. Personally, I know Black Baptists, formerly Pro-Obama, who will NOT vote for him, at this time, because of his stance on Gay Marriages. I think it was one of the FEW things he did, that was of benefit to our rights, but I'm not very Religious. It is an area of conversation I avoid...Blacks are quite into the Bible..nothing negative, but no different from the White Southern Baptists.

    President Obama has a 90% approval rating with black voters. http://www.washingtonpost.com...

    Blacks who do not support the President are at best outliers.
