Another Reporter Takes Dig at Romney, Gets Suspended

By GOPUSA Staff

Recently, GOPUSA reported on MSNBC's doctoring of video to give the impression that Mitt Romney was out of touch with real Americans. It appears that the attempted tainting of Romney continues. This time, a reporter with Politico.com, was appearing on MSNBC (go figure) and decided to imply that Romney was a racist.

As reported by Fox News, "top Politico reporter Joe Williams was suspended after suggesting on MSNBC Thursday that Mitt Romney only feels "relaxed" in the company of other white people."

It comes after Williams, White House correspondent for the prominent political news site and newspaper, injected race into his commentary on the Romney campaign while on MSNBC.

After saying it's "really interesting" that Romney appears regularly on Fox News Channel's "Fox & Friends," Williams said the appearances point to a "larger problem that he's got to solve" if he wants to win the presidency.

"When he comes on 'Fox & Friends,' they'll like him. They're white folks who are very much relaxed in their own company," said Williams, who is black.

First he's out of touch... then he's a racist. What's next? That Romney is a pedophile or something? This type of "reporting" has got to stop! Thankfully, Politico.com stepped in and did the right thing.

    Politico is in bed with Obama, and probably gave racist Joe Williams a paid vacation. Williams also tweeted a shameful comment about Ann Romney.

    Politico and MSNBC are ‘partners in crime’ with their lying and deceiving: So what’s new? These people want to turn the election into race-baiting and [Romney is of the 1%]: So what’s new? They know that Ozero has nothing [zip] [notta] to run on and they’ll take it to Romney: So what’s new?

    When Romney defeats Ozero in November: Then that’s new!

    John Kerry and his second wife and second heiress never got held to scruitiny despite several SUVS and mansions. Teresa was a real person, he said and media agreed.

    DNC and MSM wer lock step for Kerry and Edwards.

    Truthfully, Romney is MUCH more comfortable among white people, as I am. I CHOOSE to associate with whites because I can usually understand what they are saying, have something in common with whites, like a job. Being white I decided to take responsibility for my children, not just gun and run. I have a sense of humor, some of my friends say awful things to me, and I laugh, not pull out a gun and start shooting. I also have the experience of befriending blacks, but as soon as you are out numbered they change their attitudes.
    The way I see it, white folk been standing on their heads to encourage blacks to assimilate, but they just won’t, or can’t play the game.
    Vote out the real racist, vote for ROMNEY in 2012!

    MSNBC would be happy if Romney was a pediophile. Liberals celebrate perversity. After homosexuality, you can bet that pediophiles are the next darlings of the left.

    Let me offer a contrary view on this. Rather than taking offense at the race baiting game, let’s start making fun of it. Offense implies the other view is worth taking seriously. Well placed sarcasm heaped with just the right amount of ridicule will let the other side know their school yard name calling isn’t going to work any more. Expressions like, “Sorry, your race card is maxed out.” would go a long way.

      My comment is not about the article – but more in line with your suggestion – in which I agree. When filling out any form – I NO LONGER checkmark anything within the “Race” catagory – I just write in – AMERICAN. New tactics to the old game will be the game changer!

    Unfortunately, this is merely a single grain of pepper on a pepper lovers steak.
    Mr. Romney will have to get used to being shredded by the Nobama team, and the bulk of the media who are in his pocket.
    They will be beating the brush with combines to attempt to find any little thing they can possibly dig out and use against him.
    In reality there is little, in my opinion, that they will be able to use against him, at least in truth. As with every other candidate, there will be extreme mud slinging, name calling, and even invented untruths thrown into the arena before the Election is over. I so wish the elections could be on a best man win basis, on merit, but know that this cannot happen, especially since the Nobama team has already turned on the shredder, and has tried to make sure that the vote process remains flawed by not having every person show ID to vote. This allows dead people, mickey mouse, and a host of many other non votes to be pushed through, for guess who?. I believe in, and even out of his power, that the Generic President will do ANYTHING and EVERYTHING to attempt to hold the office, keep America in a death grip, and continue his death march towards the total destruction of America.
    I wish Mr. Romney would turn the tables on him/them, and have a investigation done in depth, to once and for all let all see that Nobama is illegally in the seat of President. He had his records sealed as soon as he was sworn in, has not shown a genuine Birth Certificate, and has spend upwards to a million dollars in courts to keep from having to proove his legality. It can be done through the right channels, and with deep enough pockets. This would settle everything, as it would negate everything done by Nobama since taking office.

    GOD BLESS THE USA,

    TAKE OUT THE TRASH IN NOVEMBER.

    SEND THE VACATIONERS IN CHIEF BACK
    TO WHERE EVER IT IS THEY CAME FROM,
    ANOTHER THING WE DON’T KNOW FOR SURE.

    Race baiting is all they have left. Anyone that believes we Americans haven’t bent over backwards to accept the blacks is just not living in the real world. Martin Luther King Jr got away with it and now they just want to stir it up again, with no basis for the action. Our prisons are full of blacks but we keep their families in color TVs, homes (that they trash & get another), free food, cell phones,etc. and they get to vote in their benfactors (Liberals of course.)
