RE: MSNBC: Racist Romney WANTED to get booed at NAACP event!

Media

Below Meredith notes how a few guys at MSNBC said last night Mitt Romney wanted to be booed during his speech at the NAACP. New York magazine took a look at the last part of that segment in which Goldie Taylor accuses Romney of using racial code language when he said at a separate gathering later in the day "If all they're looking for is more free government stuff they should vote for the other guy."

[T]elling those who want "free stuff" to vote for Obama is actually something [Romney]'s done repeatedly in front of people of all races, creeds, and colors. In March he told a young woman who said she wanted free birth control, "If you're looking for free stuff you don't have to pay for, vote for the other guy. That's what he's all about." That same month he said at a rally in Atlanta, "I'm not going to be promising you all sorts of free stuff. It doesn't take a leader to promise giveaways." And when speaking about student loans in May, Romney said Obama is going to promise "a lot of free stuff" to students who aren't as enthusiastic about him as they were in 2008.
