The following words are showered on Mr. Romney; bold, honest, tells it like it is, non-compromising on principles. He has only one mouth he speaks from.
During his speech at NAACP, he got booed. Of course, booing goes with public life, so is cheering; after all we are a free people and respond to situations instinctively.
Steve Holland of Reuters writes, “Although several of his lines were greeted with applause, Romney drew waves of boos when he blasted Obama’s record on jobs and the healthcare overhaul that was backed by the president and recently upheld as constitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court.”
The wire continues, “I’m going to eliminate every expensive, non-essential program. That includes Obamacare,” Romney told the crowd of hundreds in a half-filled ballroom. “Sustained boos of more than 10 seconds broke out, and Romney seemed unsettled by the reaction.”

There is other side to it.
Reuters continues, “Was it to court black voters – or to show Romney’s mostly white, conservative base that he could take his message to the heart of the opposition?”
The conservatives on the other hand see him as Rambo, the guy who dares into the enemy territory and comes back unscathed. Hence fund him more!
ABC News reports, “Critics in Obama’s camp charged immediately after the speech that Romney planned to be booed in an effort to charge up Republican voters.”

Romney said, he will give the same message where ever he goes. Really?
Did he say those words because he had nothing to lose? Did he discount the NCAAP group because he had nothing to gain from them? No funds no votes?
Would he be straight forward when he goes to the NRA or AIPAC? Or will he become an appeaser or play mouse?
Should a president do what is right, or what is beneficial to his political aspirations?
