What's your opinion? Are the NRA members so stupid that they can't see through this phony baloney politician? Are they so desperate to beat Obama that they'll even overlook Romney's flip-flopping?Running for the Senate in Massachusetts, Mitt Romney once assured voters in a state with strong gun-control laws: “I don’t line up with the NRA.” Now the likely Republican presidential nominee, Romney will headline the National Rifle Association’s annual convention in today and assure tens of thousands of gun-rights activists he’s squarely on their side.
Coming just days after rival Rick Santorum dropped out of the nomination race, the NRA convention in St. Louis provides Romney an opportunity to shore up his credentials with an important conservative constituency that badly wants to oust Democratic President Barack Obama.
Yes, I'm afraid that explains it. They're not stupid but they are desperate. And what's driving that? Racism, of course. Those fat white men at the NRA convention represent a big swath of America, and they've had just about enough of the first black president.
