Reader: Mitt Romney to claim he'll be the first black president?
Yesterday, we recapped presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney's trip to Colorado, during which he labeled President Barack Obama the "outsourcer in chief" amid claims Romney did likewise during his business career. This I'm-rubber-you're-glue tack left one reader wondering what Mitt's next bold assertion might be....
Typical Republican tactic -- take your own biggest sin and tag your opponent with it. That's how draft-dodger George Bush swiftboated war hero John Kerry. Now Romney puts his own faults on Obama and takes credit for Obama's successes. Before long Mitt will be claiming that HE will be the first black president.
