I just read that this is being spun as a possible positive thing for Romney, because people who don't like the NAACP are going to definitely vote Romney over this.
I have a difficult time believing that demographic wasn't going to vote Romney to begin with, but OK.
I think the Republican party should absolutely run ads all over the country highlighting themselves as the party of choice for people who hate the NAACP.
John Holmes Motherfucker
>>I have a difficult time believing that demographic wasn't going to vote Romney to begin with, but OK.
Well, they weren't going to vote for Obama, but they might not show up to vote for a RINO. Not only will this help Romney, I think it's a safe bet that he knew he was going to be booed, and evoked it deliberately. This guy is legendary for shaping his message for the audience. You think he chose this moment to stop by accident? We now have actual footage of Mitt Romney "STANDING UP TO SPECIAL INTERESTS" Millions of conservatives will get hard when they see this.
Look at him. I don't think I've ever seen him look so happy before.
You have to remember one thing:
Romney is a Mormon.
This election is going to be hilarious; all the racist white southern evangelicals are going to have to choose between "BLACK SECRETLY MUSLIM TERRORIST ANTI-AMERICAN FAG LOVING GOD HATING SOCIALIST" Obama and a Mormon.
The Romney camp knows this, which is why they've made him all but hide his religious affiliation these past few months.
I know that where my parents live (Stonewall, OK) it's 99.9% southern baptists, and they'd vote for Obama in a heart beat before they'd vote for a Mormon.

Look, the guy managed to not say "Uppitycare", what more do you want from him?

I'm really amazed it took this long for any audience to boo Romney, but I guess even if you're hand-picking one's audience (common practice in both parties), he would have had a nearly empty chamber if he'd been able to only allow black people who would vote Republican, and that's even if he invited Herman Cain.
But the strange thing is that he essentially said he was going to repeal the only shot at health care a lot of people are going to get in this lifetime, and I'm guessing he expected a positive response? He's lucky boos were all he got.
Democratic messaging on Obamacare has been pretty routinely terrible; 25 words or fewer:
Obamacare places long-overdue regulations on insurers so they can't take your premiums and then turn you away when you need to see the doctor.
Romney is used to audiences that have no idea of what Obamacare does, so it's easy for him to invoke Obamacare like a boogeyman. For the first time, he's encountering an audience that won't fall for it.

Were they saying boo or boo-urns?

I love how his response it to say "look, when you poll members of the Chamber of Commerce, they agree with me!!"
To add to IrishWhiskey's comment: To those who responded thusly, let them quit. In fact, hold them to it. They must give up their medical careers and join the conservatives who should also be forced to make good on their promises to leave the country if the ACA passed.
Put up or shut up.
To further add to IrishWhiskey's comment, it gets even better: They sent out faxes to 36,000 doctors, of which 16,227 were actually delivered and they got 669 replies. So, they got a 4.3% response rate on their survey.
no bias there
Also on the topic that IrishWhiskey brought up:
My Lt. Governor, who also happens to be a practicing Plastic Surgeon in a Kansas City Kansas suburb, gave testimony against PPACA to Congress yesterday. I like to imagine he was one of the 83% of doctors that responded to what was surely a loaded question.
Here's his testimony: http://bit.ly/P1KXRo

BOO THIS MAN!!
You had healthcare in your hands! And you gave it up!
Healthcare saved him in Massachusetts and he treated it like garbage. And that's what he is--the candidate of refuse! So bow down to him if you want. Bow to him. Bow to the candidate of slime, the candidate of filth, the candidate of putrescence!
And so forth.

Stars for the fifteen seconds where you can practically smell the gears in his head grinding themselves down figuring out how to respond to the crowd of boorish Negroes.
The slow gear turning is AMAZING in this one

I'm not saying all republicans are racists and homophobes. Just the people they choose to represent them.
