Mitt's White Privileged Guilt

Did you ever notice how the more Mitt Romney sounds sincere, the more he's actually lying? And during his CBS interview, after making the appallingly tactless (but covertly revealing) Birther joke, he sounds like the contrite kid who's ever so sorry he got caught with his hand in the cookie jar, but who's not at all sorry for having attempted to steal the cookie.

With that joke and its aftermath, a very large part of Mitt's (and probably Ann's) white slip is showing.

  1. Republicans can try to justify Romney's birther joke, but I'm not buying it, and neither are millions of other Americans. The republicans see nothing wrong with Romney using birtherism to attract white voters. There is definitely something wrong when a politician has to go down into the sewer to increase his odds of winning an election. It speaks volumes about his lack of character and empathy for other Americans who happen to not have been born white. Personally, it an insult to me that Romney is playing the race card. He is essentially saying that some Americans are better than others because they are white. This is not a message that someone who wants to lead a nation as diverse as ours should be sending. It also irks me when some republicans claim that it is PBO who is responsible for causing divisiveness in the U.S. to flourish when it is they, and Fox News, that have promoted divisiveness in everything they've said and done since BO was inaugurated. He never says anything about race, unless he's asked a question about it by a member of the press, but the republicans constantly make race-based comments and think nothing of it. Some Americans are easily manipulated by politicians like Romney, Santorum, Bachmann, Cain, etc., and it makes them dangerous for our nation and it's citizens because their main goal is not good governance but to grasp and hold power in a way that doesn't benefit us or the country.
