BREAKING: Romney goes full "Southern Strategy" [VIDEO]

Let me go directly to my point: use of the southern strategy to 'tickle the innards of white Americans.

Wikipedia and one of the Fathers of the GOP Southern Strategy.

(Lee) Atwater on the Southern Strategy
As a member of the Reagan administration in 1981, Atwater gave an anonymous interview to political scientist Alexander P. Lamis. Part of this interview was printed in Lamis' book The Two-Party South, then reprinted in Southern Politics in the 1990s with Atwater's name revealed. Bob Herbert reported on the interview in the 6 October 2005 edition of the New York Times. Atwater talked about the GOP's Southern Strategy and Ronald Reagan's version of it: 

Atwater: As to the whole Southern strategy that Harry S. Dent, Sr. and others put together in 1968, opposition to the Voting Rights Act would have been a central part of keeping the South. Now [the new Southern Strategy of Ronald Reagan] doesn't have to do that. All you have to do to keep the South is for Reagan to run in place on the issues he's campaigned on since 1964 and that's fiscal conservatism, balancing the budget, cut taxes, you know, the whole cluster. 

Questioner: But the fact is, isn't it, that Reagan does get to the Wallace voter and to the racist side of the Wallace voter by doing away with legal services, by cutting down on food stamps?

Atwater: You start out in 1954 by saying, "Nigger, nigger, nigger." By 1968 you can't say "nigger" — that hurts you. Backfires. So you say stuff like forced busing, states' rights and all that stuff. You're getting so abstract now [that] you're talking about cutting taxes, and all these things you're talking about are totally economic things and a byproduct of them is [that] blacks get hurt worse than whites. And subconsciously maybe that is part of it. I'm not saying that. But I'm saying that if it is getting that abstract, and that coded, that we are doing away with the racial problem one way or the other. You follow me — because obviously sitting around saying, "We want to cut this," is much more abstract than even the busing thing, and a hell of a lot more abstract than "Nigger, nigger."[6][7]

The GOP and their sleazy political operatives have a new mantra for their "attract the 'white vote' strategy: Birth Certificate.

I am sure Donald Trump grew orgasmic with Romney's comment. Romney should not have stooped to the level of a Donald Trump as it shows his true character.  Keep it hidden, Mitt!  

Yet, he joins the likes of Sunnunu and the secret adviser in London "Anglo-Saxon" comments, and Romney should wear a button below their US flag lapel pins that reads, "Bigot".

Yet, this man hangs-in with a party that obviously holds groups of people in contempt.
