Mittens has said he expected to be booed when he said he would repeal Obamacare.
Mitt Romney said Wednesday that he “expected” the negative response to his address earlier in the morning at the NAACP convention in Houston, where he was booed after vowing to repeal President Obama’s signature healthcare law.
“We expected that,” the presumptive GOP presidential nominee told Fox Business Network’s Neil Cavuto in a interview set to air later in the day. “I am going to give the same message to the NAACP that I give across the country, which is that ObamaCare is killing jobs, and if jobs is the priority, we are going to have to replace it with something that actually holds down healthcare costs, as opposed to something that causes more spending for the government and more spending for American families.â€
Never mind there is no evidence “Obamacare” is “killing jobs”; never mind there is evidence it already is slowing the rise in health care costs and will save the taxpayer’s money — would it have killed him to say “Affordable Care Act” instead of “Obamacare”? It’s one thing to say he disagrees with the President’s policies, but outright ridicule is just asking for it. And of course, Mittens was asking for it.
He said later of his audience at the NAACP, “If they want more free stuff from the government, tell them to vote for the other guy.” Yeah, them black folks just want the government to take care of them. Where have we heard that before?
Even George W. Bush wasn’t that blatantly racist.
Update: Mittens lied about when he left Bain. Next: New reports say sky is blue, grass green.
