NPR-ABC hack Cokie Roberts: Mitt Romney went to Poland to please whitey
Remember back in 2008 when Obama went to Europe and the media fawned all over him? Now that Romney goes oveseas, he is nothing but a racist according to NPR/ABC hack Kookie Cokie Roberts. Oh and the best news of all is that you’re tax dollars are paying Cokie Roberts’ salary at NPR! What a gig!
LINDA WERTHEIMER, HOST: So today is Poland. Why is he stopping in Poland. What does he hope to accomplish with that?
Cokie Roberts: Well, I think part of it was a desire to portray President Obama as something of a wimp, and say he’s abandoned Eastern Europe. But look, you remember well the Reagan Democrats. Those ethnic white voters who had been Democrats for many years; turned out for Ronald Reagan, and have been fairly predictable Republicans since then. Now it’s a smaller percentage of the population — of the voting population — than it used to be, but white voters are still much more Republican than any other group in the electorate. They went for McCain in 2008 by 55%. And I think that getting those ethnic voters excited is really what Romney has in mind here. It’s more for the folks at home — the descendents of the people that he will be speaking to — in Poland.
