"It profits me but little that a vigilant authority always protects the tranquillity of my pleasures and constantly averts all dangers from my path, without my care or concern, if this same authority is the absolute master of my liberty and my life."

Alert the Media - Ultra-Liberal Black Democratic Activists Probably Don't Like Romney

Apparently the big story of the day is that the NAACP audience for a speech today by Mitt Romney booed when he stated what he's been stating everywhere else when he speaks -- that he would repeal Obamacare.   Meh.   When ultra-liberal black Democratic Party insider/activists act like, well, ultra-liberal black Democratic Party insider/activists, it's not really news.

Romney gets some kudos for giving a speech he had to give -- he would have been blasted had he declined the invitation -- without making any gaffes, at least as far as I can tell today.   Maybe the media will find one if they look hard enough... they can always manufacture something if they ask enough people whether they were offended by anything Romney said.   But he gets this out of the way relatively early in the campaign, so that's a good thing.

Of course, given the unemployment rate for black Americans of 14.4%, you'd think some of the members of the NAACP might rethink their allegiance to the Democrats.
