I truly believe that Mitt Romney went into that room, not to speak to the NAACP, but to speak to his base. He still has a large base of conservative voters that he has to convince that he`s one of them. And given his switching stance on issues, they just don`t trust him. And so he looked to the NAACP to give him some kind of credibility.
MSNBC Pundit, Goldie Taylor, claims that Romney intentionally baited booing at the NAACP convention, because he wanted his base to know that he was "one of them".
