Romney is such a tool I don't even know if that was more than slightly racist, but wow, just wow

Duncan Hunter endorsed Mike Huckabee today.

Weird how all the former candidates have endorsed different people:

Tommy Thompson endorsed Giuliani
Sam Brownback endorsed McCain
Tom Tancredo endorsed Romney
and now Hunter.

One could speculate or juxtapose that only closet racists would feel uncomfortable with Mitt's interaction with those supporters.

Everyone was happy and having a good time.

It was obvious HE was uncomfortable, overtly racist? nah, but obviously uncomfortable.

He wouldn't bust out into an NSYNC song if surrounded by a bunch of white kids.

Of coures not. NSYNC is so 90s. Maybe "Hey There Delilah." At which point he would lose all of his votes.

In all seriousness, yeah, that's kind of racist.

Actually, I looked up billboard to find the equivelant "white version" of 'Who Let the Dog's Out?' released in 2000, and NSync was the first one I saw on the 2000 billboard list that made sense... I'm such a geek that way.

Whatever happened to those guys? They were fantastic. I mean look at the lyrics to that song. Timeless.

Are you kidding me? Racist? It was a stupid, clearly embarrassing thing to say, and I cringed when I saw it the first time, but for pete's sake, it isn't racist.

I could argue that Bill Clinton is racist for falling asleep during a speech given by the son of the greatest civil rights leader in this country's history.

Well I mean it's probably embarrassing for Romney supporters. I saw it, and like I said, I cringed because I knew everyone would make fun of him for it, and it was a bad attempt to seem cool.

You know what? I think I'll concede that to you. I don't think it's racist now that I think it over again. I think what BVS said is partially true, but I think he was much more uncomfortable with the fact that it was a young audience, not a black one.

that's closer to being accurate but not a 100% conclusive.
