Pelosi: Getting Booed Calculated Move By Romney

From the Politico:

Pelosi: Romney wanted to be booed by NAACP

By SEUNG MIN KIM | 7/11/12

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is hinting that all those boos toward Mitt Romney on Wednesday at the NAACP convention may have been exactly what the former governor was counting on.

“I think it was a calculated move on his part to get booed at the NAACP convention,” Pelosi said in an interview with Bloomberg TV on Wednesday. She did not elaborate further during the three-minute interview clip provided by Bloomberg

If so, his campaign really knows how to use the media, since they have been replaying the clip of the booing like it was the second coming of the Rodney King beating.

And yet, the news media has somehow neglected to show Romney being applauded during his speech, for his defense of marriage and other issues. They also neglected to show him receiving a standing ovation at the end of his speech.

By the way, wouldn’t Ms. Pelosi have excoriated Romney if he left out his plans to repeal Obama-Care? If he had tailored her remarks to placate the audience?

Back in Washington, the chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus wasn’t all too pleased either with Romney’s comments on health care, either.

“I felt terrible when the booing started, but I also believe that if he’s got any African-Americans in and around his campaign – which I don’t know; if he does, I don’t know any of them

So Romney should be booed by a group that does not allow white members for not having “African-Americans in and around his campaign.” The man who chairs the all black Congressional Black Caucus says so.

–[I]if he has staff members who vetted that speech or inserted some of the things that I heard, they should be fired," Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.) told a handful of reporters. “I mean, how in the world would you stand up in front of the NAACP and say that you oppose Obamacare?”

So Mr. Cleaver thinks staffers should be fired for letting Romney tell the truth to the NAACP audience? He believes Romney should have misrepresented his plans to the NAACP audience?

Wouldn’t Mr. Cleaver have excoriated Romney if he left out his plans to repeal Obama-Care? If he had tailored her remarks to placate the audience?

But Cleaver at least gave Romney an “A” for effort.

“You know, they call the members of the NAACP African-Americans and the last word is Americans,” Cleaver said. “So they deserve to hear what the presidential candidates are going to say even if they are Republican. And so I give him an A for that.”

How gracious of him.

As a thought experiment, just for a moment try to imagine the outcry if a black candidate for President would be booed by a whites only group. And then the reaction if the head of the whites only group said that it was the black candidate’s fault for not hiring enough white people.

    *sniff sniff*

    I love the smell of desperation in the morning…

    Mr Cleaver, how is it not racist to assume that every black person, hell, even every NAACP member, is automatically in favor of O-tax? Are you admitting, Sir, that this entire thing is another affirmative action program which calls blacks to indigent, stupid, and shiftless to manage their own affairs so the government must do it for them? Is that what you just said?

    I thought so.

  3. “I think it was a calculated move on his part to get booed at the NAACP convention,” Pelosi said…

    Because Mitt Romney is an eebil mind control puppet master who controls the future actions of people who strongly dislike his political policies?

    Thanks for clearing that up, Nancy.

      Mitt may be a lot of things. Smart? Certainly. Good with money? Obviously. Hard-working, possibly.

      But I must admit that I don’t think of him as clever. And calculating the booing to his advantage is something a clever person would do…or a devious one with nefarious handlers such as his opponent in this presidential race.

      I have to say that every time Nazi Peloser speaks she withdraws from the sum of human knowledge.

    Then, following this logic, the 27 rounds of enthusiastic applause and the final Standing O were calculated as well?

    Have i got that right?

      Oh no, that was astroturfing. I suspect he ran down to the country club with 50 gallons of brown shoe polish and asked for volunteers.

    I heard a [liberal] commentator talk about the appearance on the radio this morning. He echoed Cleaver’s statement, saying it was important for Romney to speak to this group of “minority and some independent voters.” Alarm bells went off in my head when he said that. The poor brainwashed fellow has no idea what has been done to him. I’ve never seen the option to register to vote as a “minority.” I’ve seen the major political parties and some smaller ones, but never “minority” as an explicit political affiliation.

    “You know, they call the members of the NAACP African-Americans and the last word is Americans,” Cleaver said. “So they deserve to hear what the presidential candidates are going to say even if they are Republican. And so I give him an A for that.”

    What an insult to African – Americans! Cleaver naturally assumes that if you’re an African – American you’re a Democrat. Does he also assume that all of us whiteys are Republicans? If that were the case then there is no way the Ohole would had been elected four years ago since last I checked, the US is still over sixty percent white. I suppose in his narrow mind he can’t even fathom a black man or woman being a Republican or shudder, a conservative.

    It’s amazing how a-holes like Cleaver want to be able to join any group or organization they desire but won’t let the majority of Americans join their exclusive “club”. And while I’m on the subject don’t they think the name of their little exclusive club is a bit racist and demeaning? I mean it is the National Association for the Advancement of COLORED People. I know if I were to call Cleaver colored, I’d be deemed a racist of the worst kind. Shouldn’t it be the NAAAAP?

      As a European-American, I find the behavior of a large segment of the negroes to be annoying. Or is it the LBJ pronunciation, “nig-rah”? I’m not sure.

      First they were africans,
      then negroes
      then blacks
      then african-americans

      Each and every new term was created because the old term had negative connotations to it.

      But no one has ever examined as to why each term became a “negative” label.

      So I submit, that if you put dog-poop in a bottle and call it perfume, it will still stink. It’s not the name…it’s the actual substance. They cannot see their folly because they live in the middle of it, with anger at the core of their purpose; Always looking for racism and thus, finding it even when there is none to be found. But the smell is always the same.

      I’m reminded of the fellow at work who commented on how black it looked outside while looking out the window. The large number of blaf-ricans standing around waiting for hotel transportation was not in his thought process and some say “maybe it should’ve been” since he got called on the carpet and sent to re-education camp for being “insensitive”, accused by someone who had a racialist axe to grind. Yet, no one else seemed to notice the rolling thunderclouds that prompted the statement.

      Walking on eggshells is bullsh*t. Years ago, being politically correct was something you did when it was easily done….but now…with the jackass in the white house and his racialist DOJ puke who both categorically hate white people, it’s become far more common and complaints against whitey have exploded in the workplace.

      Oh…and somewhere in there they were “coloreds”

    I thought NAACP was National Association of
    Always Complaining People. Trying to remember
    anything positive they’ve done since MLK Jr. died.

  8. “I think it was a calculated move on his part to get booed at the NAACP convention,” It didn’t take much calculatin’. For the last 5 years the Media and the Regime have been bad mothing white people in general and white politicians in particular. How much calculating would you have to do to come up with… “I’ll bet Romney gets Boooed at his NAACP speech.” WOW… genius level thinking there Mittens. I’d love to ask Princess P what his motivation for wanting the crowd to boo him was? Could it be that a boo from the NAACP = more Republican base votes? Could it be that even the Queen of the House knows that the Majority of real Americans differ in their views and priorities from the NAACP? Could it be that he was illustrating the old axiom, “The enemy of my enemy is my friend”, and that the NAACP has a lot of powerful enemies… like true patriotic freedom concious non-hyphenated Americans who may now, because of the booing, be on Romney’s donation list?

    Nah, she just couldn’t think of anything else to say, so she’ll just say that Romney got what he wanted, and it’s always bad when Republicans get what they want. Nanny nanny boo boo…. They’re desperate, and we all know it. Come on November…
