◼ Mitt Romney delivered a gutsy speech to the NAACP convention on Wednesday, reminding African-Americans of what most of them knew or should have known: President Obama hasn't made their lives better. - Donald Lambro/Townhall
No demographic group has suffered more from Obama's economic policies than black Americans, nor has a worse unemployment rate.
Romney went into the lion's den in Houston knowing he would be booed, but it was a courageous move on his part to show he was taking his campaign for economic renewal to every corner of the country and to every interest group, even to Obama's core political constituencies.
Notably, the president has decided to take a pass on the NAACP convention, where he would have had to defend his failed economic policies and look into the faces of people who are hurting under his presidency....
It was a risky performance and could have ended badly for Romney, but he emerged from the speech as someone who was not afraid to carry his message to every group in the country, even those who may be hostile toward him.
And he proved he was not going to tailor his message to suit different audiences and that he held firm convictions that would not shift with the political tides.
The Obama campaign put out a statement saying that "African-Americans can't afford Romney economics."
Tell that to the 2.4 million black workers who cannot find a job in Obama's economy.
