Can You Say "Desperate"?

In case you didn't already know it, GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney spoke yesterday in Houston to a conference of the NAACP.  In his speech, he, once again, promised unapologetically to act to repeal Obamacare if elected.  For the remark, he received a chorus of catcalls and boos.

Perhaps contrary to expectations, Romney did not pander in any fashion to his nearly all-black audience, but instead delivered his same workman-like speech and was rewarded for doing so with muted, but genuine praise in some otherwise hostile quarters.  But not in all.

Believe it or not, more than a few on the Left, like MSNBC host Lawrence O'Donnell, argued with a straight face that Romney deliberately elicited the booing in order to appeal to white racists.

You know what this means, don't you?

We're winning.
