Fineman: White Southern Conservatives Impressed By NAACP Booing Romney
Howard Fineman: By showing up, by going to the NAACP, he might get some credit. Although, he took a lot of it away with the use of the word 'Obamacare,' which is a loaded word. With some independent white voters in suburbs, they may say, 'Look he went to the NAACP, isn't that nice?'
But there are other parts of the white voting community, the conservative part in the South who have their doubts about Mitt Romney, as a conservative, who, sadly, perhaps will have their views strengthened about him as a conservative by watching him being booed by that audience.
And I think you said earlier, Lawrence, this is a guy with a tin ear to his audience. As he said later, he knew in advance that he was going to be booed. By using the word ObamaCare, they can't be that dumb in the Romney campaign that they didn't know that that was a red flag. And what I think what they told him to do was stand there and let the boos rolls, what is precisely what happened.
