Mitt Romney Says He Wants to “Hang Obama by the Neck”



by Dr. Boyce Watkins, Your Black WorldScholarship in Action 

Republican Presidential front-runner Mitt Romney is now trying to explain his way out of controversial and racist remarks about President Barack Obama. During a campaign stop in New Hampshire, the presidential hopeful referenced “hanging Obama by the neck” as a way to defeat him in the next election.

During a dinner hosted by Americans for Prosperity, Romney said "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 then said, "Well, we’re going to have to hang the ‘Obama Misery Index’ around his neck."

For some odd reason, Romney kept going down the path of no return when he said, "I’ll tell you, the fact that you’ve got people in this country really squeezed, with gasoline getting so expensive, with commodities getting so expensive, families are having a hard time making ends meet. So, we’re going to have to talk about that, and housing foreclosures and bankruptcies and higher taxation. We’re going to hang him with that, so to speak, metaphorically."

  1. When does a negative attack work in favor of the person it is aimed toward?

    This is ‘America’ OK! Only fools would go about their daily lives without trying to understand that the same kind of people who stole humans from Africa and instigated a Mexican land grab, and constantly bombard our citizenry with lies, while killing powerful dissenters including presidents would change their stripes.

    They haven’t stopped doing any of the vile racist and scheming acts that they are notorious for. They have improved their game! That is why it is so crucial to understand that Mr. Obama is not who or what we think he is, but the racist whites will always be who they are. They can’t contain themselves when they have so much power and anger. Some of them weren’t let in on the major schemes, but they are genius at making sure nothing is done for the many wrongs they commit.

    Everyone should have understood by now that we (some of us), are living happily, and paying taxes to a group that makes Hitler look like a rookie. Everything they do is against the will of the populace. When they attack another country they are confident enough to tell us that they are good, and the leaders of other nations are bad. Study the history of this country. The men who began this country on its vile trek are the ancestors of the men who continue their evil works. Mr. Obama is their very well paid ‘man of color’. He should not be respected and we should not allow ourselves to be so naive and idiotic as to practically worship his underhanded facade. (A man who speaks a good game but knows he can do nothing, and doesn’t care). He will be a billionaire when is game play is over!

    Every soundbite aimed at Obama is actually to assure the public becomes on-board with what the Anglo-Elite wish. They are using psychological warfare, reverse psychology, and all sorts of tactics the unsuspecting citizen could ever imagine. (Where a vile word spoken against Obama works in his favor).

    There are always people who use the phrases like, “Wake up America”, but the truth of the matter is. We aren’t asleep, we are just too darn stupid to understand our dilemma! Stupid we are we celebrate people we truly know nothing about, and we believe politicians we know are typical of lying. We listen corrupt media and at once believe the massive lies they report. Are we only stupid idiots, or are we unbelievably insane lunatics?

  2. AMEN! and AMEN!!!!

    This is the usual statement that does not state what was said. The statement was that he would hang the fininacial crisis around the president’s neck. the problem thas so many blacks out of work. He promised us that he would help and has failed todo so. Jackson1925

    This article is a misstatement. He said that he would hang the financial crisis around the president’s neck.

    The president promised to help with black unemployment. Has he done so.

    The Black man is fighting the whole world because they won’t allow the Lord to do it for them, nor tell them how to do it. The Battle isn’t ours but the Lord’s
    Wake up Black People. Change your thinking you change our lives. There is a lot in the Bible that deals with how to bless others and how to be blessed. This is the balance to cursing others and being cursed. We hear a lot taught about God blessing you but not much taught about how you can bless others in thought, word and deed. The emphasis is on what God will do for you without you having to do anything.
    It’s time the Church taught the truth and you as suppose Christians listen and learn the truth. Christianity is not a free lunch and we are not on welfare. To be an effective Christian requires considerable effort.

    We know how the white people feel about us, yet we are doing nothing about it, but waiting on the President. What did we think the man was going to do? step in there and these white folks was going to allow him to change the whole world? Wrong. We need God to help us get off our lazy butts and do something about it. \
    We fight against each other like cats and dogs white folks stick together even if they know they are wrong. Be angry at me if you will but listen to this. What comes out of our mouth is what is happening to us. “Bitch, Whore, Low-life, Dead Beat daddy”, Thief, Punk, etc: We can’t get no where because of the white man”. The white man doe snot live in our house and nor our hearts unless we allow them. We open our mouth and the ball goes rolling. That Nigger gonna end up dead or in jail” Well the devil heard you now it’s time to wake up and give God Thanks and praises instead of all this garbage about loving Him. How can you love Him and you don’t even love you?

    There are no blessings in the Bible that are unconditional. For every blessing there is a condition that you must fulfill before you receive the blessing. In other words, this is the “if” you see so often in the verses either stated directly or understood. Deut. 28:1-2 And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt (shalt not) hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the Lord thy God will set (not set) thee on high above all nations of the earth: and all these blessings shall (shall not) come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt (shalt not) hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God. The reverse is true also; see the words in the parentheses.

    I had a dream last night,I was standing in front of a mirror ,picking my Afro out ,saying to someone in the room, “Shoot, they haven’t seen this style in a long time; but they’re going to see it today!” Patting and rounding it out. I was looking and feeling powerfully black and proud. I think it was a omen to the news this morning about Bin Laden.
    To Trump.. and the rest of the lynch mob,and all the programed black folks that think a brown man can’t get something done in th white house.

    “Oops there it is!”

    For some odd reason, Romney kept going down the path of no return when he said, “I’ll tell you, the fact that you’ve got people in this country really squeezed, with gasoline getting so expensive, with commodities getting so expensive, families are having a hard time making ends meet.

    Tell me,which of these situations named by Romney is the President responsible for? And, do some of you expect that he is able to feed the “5000” with “two loaves and five fishes” ? Sure,we are hurting economically, but it didn’t start with Obama,so give him a chance to move this country forward despite having to deal with all the hatred and false distractions,and some of our constant whining. The man is a president–not God.

    what is the difference between wall street and the black voters?
    black voters voted 98% democratic because they believed OBAMA


  10. Roosevelt Thompson

    I think black voters all over this country should put a sign in their
    windows we are hiring. those that can’t protect black interest need not

  11. rubylaughs

    Sorry Velt, that may have been your agenda for voting for Obama but my agenda was getting a president that would at least do the best job he could under the circumstances for everybody and a better job then the one before him. And you’re damn right I voted for him mostly because he was a brown man!
    Shoot I ain’t got to lie, I ain’t got ta is what it is!
    That’s my president and I’ll be damn if I’m not going to have his back!

    ~How about taking care of your own damn agenda or better yet,when’s the last time you got up off your behind and did something to help black folks and their agenda, as you call it? hmm Velt , hmmm?~;)

  12. rubylaughs

    oops >help black folks and their >interest< , as you call it?

  13. Roosevelt Thompson

    I did not vote for Obama because he is black i voted for him
    because i thought he would protect my interest, and by the way
    black people do have a Hugh stake in America (and it will be protected)

    even you will see to that if paid a fair wage.

    Look, the apple doesn’t fall from the tree! Malcom warned us of Romney’s father’s racist tendencies 1/2 century ago.
