And by all means, let's not tell the TRUTH about Obama. He's got a huge aversion to the TRUTH. Every time he opens his mouth he lies about Romney. Muslims are more hated than Mormons because Mormons don't fly airplanes into tall buildings. GO FIGURE!
Republican presidential candidates do not go to NAACP conventions to win votes. Any more than Christians went to the Coliseum to convert the lions.

It's more an act of martyrdom, a gesture of good will, a ritual offering to placate special interest. Neither the guest speaker nor his audience pretends that the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People -- are we still allowed to say colored people? -- is Republican country.

The party of Lincoln lost its appeal to black voters sometime between Herbert Hoover's administration and Richard Nixon's Southern Strategy. And it's nobody's fault...
