"Can you imagine Mitt Romney and Kanye West as in-laws?”

It appeared as if MSNBC's Melissa Harris-Perry and her guests could not quite figure out what to say about the Romney's family picture, in which Mitt Romney is holding his adopted black grandson.


So, they made stupid comments, giving my side a rare, legitimate opening to call them on hypocrisy and other nasty things, they themselves, constantly, I mean night and day, attribute to tea party and the GOP... you know the drill.

 
For a sample of the swift reaction so far click read more.
 
 

Gimme some of that GOP elephant memory.
An entrepreneurial twitter wiz looked and whateyouknow found Melissa Harris Perry picture with her mix race parents... on and on, on and on it goes, when will it stop? nobody knows.

In the seventies my mom's cousins adopted a black baby, but had to give it back because they couldn't get used to it.

People would look and stare? make comments?

if you don't mind talking about it.

MSNBC is gross. Top to bottom gross.

Unknown said...

How does anyone, even a normal democrat with half a brain, tolerate MSNBC? It's beyond pathetic and beyond parody.

Democrats should be ashamed.

Lem said...

My theory is that the mocking comes from a sense of entitlement made legitimate (in their minds) by the superiority of their status as liberals.

It's not complicated.

They are endowed by their superior status with certain unalienable rights among these abortion on demand, liberty to contradict themselves, and the persecution of tea party republicans.

deborah said...

Oh, no, Lem. It's just they'd go to tend him, and they couldn't get used to him. No one's fault, just culture shock, I guess.

A roundtable of wannabe Mean Girls accompanied by one weenie guy. It’s all so junior high.

Awestruck by the cosmic irony of Melissa Harris Perry calling someone else a token.

At some point, 'the baseball looks like a beach ball'. cant miss.

I think I understand.

"wannabe mean girls"... heh.

Unknown said...

The lib-snobs see everything through skin color. Which is what exactly? Shallow as can be? Perhaps.
oh no - I've got it. It's racist.
Actual real racism.

Lem said...

I didn't have to make a new tag for that woman... Melissa Harris Perry. check it out. I mean click on it.

Lord, keep her safely right where she is. same time slot even.

Lord, the economy is bad enough as it is, we don't need more people laid off.

I saw that photo of the Romney's with their grandchildren a few days ago. I didn't notice the black baby.
I guess I didn't get the lib-snob skin color detecto-gene. All I saw were a bunch of happy cute little kids.

Lem said...

Actual real racism.

They have abused that characterization so often they become blind to the real thing... or something.

Lem said...

"I didn't have to make a new tag for that woman..."

For those of you unfamiliar... "that woman"
is my favorite Bill Clinton impersonation.

Unknown said...

Thanks for the links, Lem.
I like this tweet regarding Melissa's insistence that she's not of mixed race.

"to deny your mother's ethnicity as a part of you makes you a #Racist".

Trooper York said...

Wait a minute.

Brandi Granville is a commentor on MSNBC?

That explains a lot right there.

Lem said...

Housewife of Beverly Hills?

wrong show troop.

Unknown said...

She's ashamed of her white mother. Nice. That just makes this MSNBC host even more icky.
Unless Harris-Perry's mom was an unkind mother or did something to deserve her daughter's disdain, the only reason Melissa doesn't like her mom or include her mom as part of her pride, is because of the color of her skin.

icky. gross. MSNBC. yuck. Joke network.

Romney has an impossibly healthy and attractive family. His life has had a lot of blessings. I suppose some of it excites envy, but an adopted grandchild is not the proper angle of attack.

William said...

Looks wise, you really have a leg up if your natural parents are Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. I wonder how sibling rivalry plays out in that family........These are the kind of unworthy thoughts that no one would ever say on the air. Such thoughts are fine when applied to the Romney family.

They seem attractive, but not surprisingly so.

Do you have any reason to believe they are healthier than average? I know his wife has MS. I don't know anything, positive or negative, beyond that.

Icepick said...

The proper thing to say about a new addition to a family is some form of congratulations - and do it effusively if you know them. What adult doesn't know this?

Probably the same kind that would criticize someone for not aborting a child with known problems, such as Down's Syndrome.

Not really. Their Mormon-ness makes me think that the kids are probably healthier than the norm. No caffine, sodas and probably less sugars and other preservatives in their diets. None of the kids appear to be overweight. And with just a couple of exceptions the kids appear to be happy to pose with Grandpa.

Normal family as it used to be.

Whether they are 'healthy' in their genes....who knows.....actually....who cares.

Adopting a baby is admirable. Giving a child a chance at a loving family life and a good home. In the case of the Romney's a wealthy family home.

Why the MSM and other media feel they need to make such a deal about THIS mixed race adoption is beyond me since they slobber all over themselves with the Madonna, Branjalena and other celebrity mixed race adoptions. What a bunch of hypocrites.

Birches said...

Yeah, I'm not sure they're any healthier, but the kids probably just clean up nice because they can afford to. I am actually a little shocked they didn't pay someone to photoshop in better pictures of the crying ones. They'be got the money.

When I saw the picture, I didn't notice that the baby was black either. Perhaps I'm used to seeing family pictures with variations of brown in them. These people must have had a hard time with the George HW Bush family pictures: the brown and the white were mixed together!

Methadras said...

How many examples do you need from the left to show what base racist scum bags they are, hmmm? How many?
