Snow White With Testicles': Limbaugh Slams Romney NAACP Speech

Media

"That's not what this bunch wants to hear."

Rush Limbaugh

You have to give Mitt Romney credit for trying to get the NAACP to listen. He did his darnedest without compromising his message, and it showed. Nevertheless, the fact remains that in terms of reception, the speech was a disaster. The crowd was hostile from the beginning, and got worse at various points, and Romney's arguments, while even-handed, simply could not cut through the fog of racial victimization that obscures the thinking of many within the NAACP.

Worse, despite the fears of some liberal commentators, Romney's being booed has apparently not helped him with the conservative press. How do we know? Because even Rush Limbaugh, who had every reason to pump Romney's speech as a courageous act, was disappointed with the reception and said Romney's attempt to speak to the group was a lost cause. Why? Because, according to Limbaugh, Romney just can't help the fact that he looks and sounds white, and the NAACP (or as Rush calls them, the NAALCP, for "National Association for the Advancement of Liberal Colored People") doesn't want to hear that.

"That’s what Obama does. Obama brings out the Selma twang when he heads in there to the NAALCP," Limbaugh thundered. "And Hillary, 'I ain’t no ways tiiiired.' Then they stand up and they give Hillary a cheer, and Obama says things like, 'Well, my grandfather came down here with the po’.' They scream, 'Right on, dude!' And they stand up for a standing ovation! Romney goes in there today, and he sounded like Snow White with Testicles. That’s not what this bunch wants to hear."

Not that it was all bad news. Limbaugh noted in a later segment that despite being booed while talking about Obamacare, Romney did get a standing ovation when his speech had finished. "I wonder how many news media will report that," Limbaugh said wryly. We can now say that at least one will. Listen to the second segment here:
