Inappropriate Comment from Mitt Romney

Mitt Romney recently referred to Massachusetts as the “Kennedy and Kerry Klan.” Kennedy and Kerry may be anti-american blowhards, but they are not klansmen. It would be more appropriate the next time Governor Romney discusses Klansmen if he would confine his comments to the Democrat who actually was a member of the KKK: Senator Robert Byrd (D-WV).

In the Governor’s defense, maybe he confused members of the party historically associated with racism. After all, it was the Democrats who defended slavery. It was southern Democrats who opposed the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Today, it is the Democrats who support race-based preferences. I’ll give Governor Romney a pass because of the understandable confusion that results from trying to differentiate Democrat policies and views on race.
