Mitt Romney announced he is running for president in 2012 today. He did it in Stratham, New Hampshire, at the Bittersweet Farm. The same place that Bush ’41 and Bush ’43 made their announcement. Not missing a beat, Chris Matthews, host of Hardball on MSNBC plays the race card.
While watching the clip of Romney’s announcement, Mathews says “look at the diversity in that crowd. They are Lilly white.”
Chris wins the M.R.I.O.T.D. (Most Ridiculous Item Of The Day) award hands down on a twofer. First for even injecting a racial element, and second for the locale of the event. They were in New Hampshire, where blacks represent 1.4 percent of the population.
