It's so coincidental that I'd like to believe "Great Minds" think alike or maybe this just stuff is finally starting to reach its boiling point. Just yesterday on our weekly radio show "That's Whats Up," The Janitor, ShadyGrady and myself engaged in a discussion about this idea that Mitt Romney feels the need to throw out elements of racism as red meat to his base. Well finally, we here at The Urban Politico are not the only ones who are seeing it. Finally someone had the guts to call out the Republican Party and Mitt Romney.
Chris Matthews gives Reince Priebus the Business.......
You know what really pisses me off? This idea that both parties are alike and to be held accountable on an equal playing field for their use of campaign rhetoric. News Flash! This is false! Call me a partisan or leftie, I really don't care! Reverse these campaigns and President Obama would have been hung out to dry a long time ago.
Just Friday, as in three days ago, Mitt Romney made a birther joke at a campaign rally in Michigan.
“Now I love being home in this place where Ann and I were raised, where both of us were born. Ann was born in Henry Ford Hospital. I was born in Harper Hospital, no one’s ever asked to see my birth certificate. They know that this is the place that we were born and raised.”
"Hey everybody, this is my wife Michelle, she's the best, she is smart, intelligent keeps me grounded and she is the only woman for me and the only woman I've even been married to, no one has to worry about me ever having more than one wife, i'm not a morman."
Yep, I went there! How would Mitt, the RNC and crew react? You guessed right, outraged!
Has the Republican Party gone too far on their negative campaigning and rhetoric?
Are Democrats and Republicans on an equal playing field when it comes to negative rhetoric?
