Mitt's Misery Index Raised by PC Police
Here's the video as Mitt is facing some controversy for using the phrase "hang around his neck" in reference to the president. Such is life in the post-racial era.
Speaking at the Americans for Prosperity Presidential Summit in New Hampshire, Mr. Romney made a reference to Ronald Reagan and then conveyed what turned out to be an unfortunate image.
While the history of race relations is sad in this country, the painful past is used as a political power tool in the present by the fear the PC crowd creates over treating minorities like equals.
You remember during the Ronald Reagan, Jimmy Carter debates that Ronald Reagan came up with this great thing about the misery index, and he hung that around Jimmy Carter’s neck and that had a lot to do with Jimmy Carter losing,” he said. “Well, we’re going to have to hang the Obama misery index around his neck.”
