Romney has just responded via a pool report to his booing from the NAACP. Well we all know that this was all a stunt so that he would get booed by the NAACP in order to appeal to his conservative base and play the victim. But Romney has just said something that I predict will get him into hot water. It is being reported on the Rachel Maddow show that Romney has just said the following via a pool report: see below
Update 1: Still looking for a direct link to the pool report but other sites are reporting this as well. See this link:
Update 2: video from the Rachel Maddow Show
Update 3: Found the exact quote from the pool party and Romney wasn't speaking about the NAACP specifically but rather folks who support Obamacare.
Romney continued:Because of that link I changed the title to more accurately reflect what Romney was trying to say and I deleted any specific references to African-Americans or the NAACP.
"But I hope people understand this, your friends who like Obamacare, you remind them of this, if they want more stuff from government tell them to go vote for the other guy — more free stuff. But don't forget nothing is really free. it has to paid for by people in the private sector creating goods and services, and if people want jobs more than they want free stuff from government, then they are going to have to get government to be smaller. And if they don't want to repeal Obamacare they are going to have to give me some other stuff they are thinking about cutting, but my list takes Obamacare off first and I have a lot of other things I am thinking of cutting."
Thus Romney is saying that supporters of Obamacare just want a hand out from the government which is a bunch of crap.
This is what Romney has just said at a fundraiser tonight about his being booed at the NAACP according to a pool report just reported on the Rachel Maddow show:
ROMNEY'S EXACT WORDS: Remind them of this, if they want more stuff from government tell them to go vote for the other guy-more free stuff. But don't forget nothing is really free.
