Mitt Romney made a bold move at an NAACP event this week.
While addressing the nation’s oldest civil-rights group, he decided to criticize President Obama, which wouldn’t be so bad … if he hadn’t turned it into a race issue.
“If you want a president who will make things better in the African-American community, you’re looking at him,” said Mitt to the boos of the crowd.
Come on, Mitt, let’s use some common sense here: you’re really going to tell a civil rights group that you’re a better policy-maker for the African-American community than the country’s first-ever African-American president?
Even if it were true, we’re not sure the crowds would buy it coming from a white Mormon. Sorry, Mitt!
Better luck next time.
