Once again the mainstream media has ignored a transformative movement in American politics. As witnessed in this video clip, Gov. Mitt Romney is making serious inroads within the black community. Watch the reaction he gets from these young urban voters. Watch how effortlessly he connects with them. He speaks their language, even referencing a popular minstrel song. Brilliant, if not moving.
Now imagine John McCain around that same group. First he’d have to turn up his hearing aid. Then he’d start whistling “Oh Susannah” or some other out-of-date tune. And there’s always the chance of a violent flashback.
You’ll never get that from Gov. Romney, who continues to assert himself as the best presidential candidate in many lifetimes. He didn’t serve in the military, but if he had I can assure you Romney wouldn’t have been captured by the enemy. While McCain was grousing in some POW camp, Romney was turning a profit. There’s no better experience for the Oval Office than being a CEO, as George W. Bush continues to demonstrate.
Regarding my original point, I see the governor competing effectively for the black vote. I’m guessing he gets a slight majority over Hillary Clinton, leading to a landslide of epic proportions. Granted, he won’t beat Obama among blacks, but I could see Romney easily getting between 30 and 40 percent in that contest.
It’s becoming clear to citizens in ghettos and country clubs alike: There’s only one man who can lead us, and his name is Mitt Romney.
