Romney In Da House

I didn’t know Romney was fluent in ebonics. Think it will win over some of the black vote for him? Watch the video in the article. I cringed.

[i]The presidential hopeful met a friendly crowd at the Martin Luther King, Jr. parade here. The former Massachusetts governor often runs back and forth across streets during parades to greet people and today was no exception. He shook hands with ROTC members, tiny beauty queens, police officers and many parade-goers, including children screaming his name. He jumped off the Mitt Mobile to greet a waiting crowd, took a picture with some kids and young adults and awkwardly quipped, “Who let the dogs out? Who who.”

He took pictures with many in the crowd and greeted one baby wearing a necklace saying, “Hey buddy! How’s it going? What’s happening? You got some bling bling here!”[/i]

Anyone else think Romney is kind of a social dumbass? He comes off like he has no idea how to have a sincere conversation. Every time I see him in “conversation”, I feel like he’s just waiting for his turn to speak.

Maybe he’ll change his name to Romney King, and the LAPD will beat the shit out of him.

If it had not been said to a crowd of all black people it would have come across pretty funny – in an out-of-touch, crazy uncle sorta way. This was just way too contrived and desperate. He seemed to be saying, “See? I am down and I get black people.”

At least he tries…even if he doesn’t get the idea of treating people as individuals.
