Romney at NAACP convention

Posted by Richard on July 11, 2012

Mitt Romney addressed the NAACP convention in Houston today. Every news broadcast in the free world featured the same 15-second clip of him vowing to get rid of Obamacare and the audience booing. Every news story about the speech featured some variation of “Romney booed.”

What most of the MSM aren’t mentioning is that he received applause on a number of occasions and a standing ovation at the end.

I doubt he picked up many votes. But he seems to have picked up quite a bit of respect. He showed up, he talked straight, and he didn’t pander. It was really a pretty strong speech, nicely delivered. If this is characteristic of his speeches, I’ve gotten the wrong impression from the short clips I’ve seen (via the MSM) and the few minutes of primary debates I watched. If this is characteristic, he’s easily a better communicator than the last three four Republican standard-bearers.

Watch the whole thing (25 minutes) here.
