Romney Gaffes Again; this time in racial proporations!

The Romney camp blows the dog-whistle to his (racist?) fringe.  Said Romney advisor,

We are part of an Anglo-Saxon heritage, and he [Romney] feels that the special relationship is special,” the Romney adviser told British newspaper The Telegraph.  “The White House didn’t fully appreciate the shared history we have.

Probably not the thing you want to promote if you aspire to represent a country which, for the first time in its history, this year birthed more non-Anglos than Anglos and whose demographics will be majority minority in his lifetime and in which there will be socio-cultural-economic consequences of some type!

Guess what “Mitt” . . . we know US and colonial (world) history . . . ALL of it (I for one know it really well) and it is clear your memory is selective.

*** Equal Time *** In response, Romney spokeswoman disputes that the Telegraph quote came from inside the Romney camp, but didn’t say which part of the quote was inaccurate.

    Did the Romney camp Sununu again?

    You know, you float this stuff, give it legs, let it get out and around to your target audience and then deny it later after the faithful have got their daily dose of resentment in.

    Seems to be this Governors mode of operation. It seems very cowardly. Like slapping someone and then running away before they can reply in kind.

  • In reply to Chas Holman:

    You are exactly correct with Sununu! They (Romney, "the Right") have shown they will engage in "plausible deniability"!

    . . . but I don't want to put on the tin-foil hat quite yet. ;)
