No matter how unpopular it might have been Mitt Romney stuck to his guns during this week's N double ACP.
Convention I'm gonna eliminate every nonessential expensive program I can find.
That includes obamacare and I'm gonna work to reform and save.
But that Boeing has many people wondering what happened.
To the original NAACP.
The nonpartisan civil rights icon.
That prided itself on being fair.
Why have you former Republican presidential candidate Herman -- good morning Herman.
Going forward are -- -- force for good in this country other air force for partisanship.
First of all I along with the rest of America.
I am thankful pull what they needed in the fifth is in the sixties for the -- -- civil rights in this country that been stated today.
Has lost its relevance.
And it's looking but its relevance in all of the wrong places.
That used to be a war and we've won that war or civil rights -- -- some battles yes that will always be.
I believe that that new focus should be economic in parliament but they have not made that transition so they have simply lost that -- people.
-- of economic empowerment it seems to me that governor Romney was saying things about a fourteen point 4%.
Unemployment rate in the African American committee that perhaps we haven't heard.
From White House officials.
Yet it appears it was vilified for it why -- double standard.
They have a double standard it.
It's just like -- a double standard of all the way back when President Obama was candidate Obama that simply a double standard because.
Many of the people in that audience are are very liberal -- that thinking.
And they are basically overlooking the fate of use of this president and this administration.
So -- is a double standard and I might add that they have also -- double standard.
In the mainstream broadcast media I'm not talking about -- because I think that you don't live up to being fair and balanced.
But -- -- brief with somebody other networks of how they treated that speech.
And I along with my staff predicted.
That the booms we're going to be the lead story and they weren't they didn't talk about the spent an ovation that he got I think again.
They understand -- -- was ignited talking about.
Judicial -- values.
Yes he got a standing ovation that I watched with my staff while we -- have an eight KTV dot com meeting.
I watched the entire thing and that what.
The media the other media did report on -- he got an intermediate applause from mammals of that audience omitted the points when he talked about.
How he was going to grow this economy.
He was gonna cut spending but unfortunately when he used some of those trickle words repeal obamacare that's a -- word.
That I knew was going to elicit a negative reaction that it be it.
What is it trigger word mean and -- their true many trigger words.
In our politics today are we veering towards a racial presidential.
The answer is we are -- into a racial presidential election.
Any reason quite frankly he is this president and this administration they have nothing else to lean on.
Other than trying to play the race card and played the class warfare part.
That's very unfortunate.
Because that's not good for the country and it's not good for the people who really want to be a -- -- written about the see.
A brighter future for this economy so yes I believe that the Democrats and the Obama administration that they are in fact gonna make this very racial.
This time around.
Well we don't need that in this country from either party and let's hope not we're gonna watch your newest project -- TV and mr.
-- And we thank you for coming on this morning we helping your -- in the weeks to come.
-- TV dot com -- are bold.
And honest thanks for either.
