Mitt Romney’s Rope-a-Dope with Reverend Al Sharpton

NEW YORK – With just days to go before the 2012 presidential election, Mitt Romney agreed to a question and answer session on MSNBC’s  Politics Nation with host, Reverend Al Sharpton. Following is a transcript of that interview:

AL SHARPTON:  Thank you for joining us in this day of heated exchanges and profabricated dialogue Mr. Mitt.

MITT ROMNEY:  It’s my pleasure, sir.

AL SHARPTON:  You may call me Reverend.

MITT ROMNEY:  Sure, Reverend.

AL SHARPTON:  Now let me get right to the root of the canal of problems in the political climate we here in America call politics.


AL SHARPTON:  You have a horse.

MITT ROMNEY:  I have several horses actually.

AL SHARPTON:  Several? That’s a lot of horses.

MITT ROMNEY:  I’m fortunate enough to be in the position to …

AL SHARPTON:  Your fortune, if estimated, would askew to astronomical proportions.

MITT ROMNEY:  I have been blessed with great success.

AL SHARPTON:  What you call a blessing could be corkscrewed by people of color as a rampid case of being white in America.

MITT ROMNEY:  Actually I feel my success came from working hard.

AL SHARPTON:  Are you reflexing that people of color don’t work?

MITT ROMNEY:  I believe that anybody of any color can be successful if they work hard.

AL SHARPTON:  Would you admit to the difficulties constrained with fighting racism while attempting to work hard in today’s post relations America?

MITT ROMNEY:  I’m not sure I understand.

AL SHARPTON:  Mr. Mitt, are you now or have you never been a racist?

MITT ROMNEY:  Of course not.

AL SHARPTON:  Do you have the clarity to gesticulate that statement?


AL SHARPTON:  When was the last time you invited an African American child of color to play with your children?

MITT ROMNEY:  I don’t think ….

AL SHARPTON:  Will you tell me now on national television if you would allow an African American to be alone with your children?

MITT ROMNEY:  My children are adults now, so it’s really not up to me to determine who they associate with.

AL SHARPTON:  Mr. Mitt, do any of your children associate with adulterated African Americans?

MITT ROMNEY:  They all associate with African Americans.

AL SHARPTON:  Do you have proof that will legitamatize your claim?

MITT ROMNEY:  Well, I don’t carry around photographs of my children with African Americans, no.

AL SHARPTON:  So would it be incoherent to assume that without evidentuary exhibits before the court of public option that your children do not indeed associate with African Americans?

MITT ROMNEY:  I have no idea what you just said.

AL SHARPTON:  Should I get a rich white man to interpret for you?

MITT ROMNEY: (chuckles) I don’t know if you could find a person of any color to interpret what you just said.

AL SHARPTON:  So in essential, you penetrate people of color because they don’t have enough money to interpret you?

MITT ROMNEY:  (shrugs his shoulders) Gosh darn it, Reverend, I just don’t know what you’re asking.

AL SHARPTON:  Since I am the professional news host of my own news show on MSNBC it’s imperatant that I ask the tough questions.

MITT ROMNEY:  I wouldn’t expect anything less.

AL SHARPTON:  Why, because I’m an African American?

MITT ROMNEY:  Because you are a newscaster.

AL SHARPTON:  A few years ago you murdered a white woman yet today you want to be the Commander of Chiefs.

MITT ROMNEY:  I never murdered anyone.

AL SHARPTON:  Her husband said you did.

MITT ROMNEY:  Well, the poor man lost his ….

AL SHARPTON:  If an African American man of color killed a white woman he’d be on death row in a pentecostiary.

MITT ROMNEY:  That was a misleading ad, Reverend, and the Obama campaign ….

AL SHARPTON:  And your new runner mate Private Ryan also killed a white woman. You guys are a killing machine.

MITT ROMNEY:  Paul Ryan never killed anyone.

AL SHARPTON:  I watched it on TV with my eyes. Pushed an old lady in a wheel chair over a clift.

MITT ROMNEY:  Reverend, do you really believe …

AL SHARPTON:  Mr. Mitt, I have time for a final last question, so please be honest. When the American people hear of a felon who doesn’t pay his taxes and causes the death of innocent people, what name is going to pop into their head?

MITT ROMNEY:  Why, Reverend Al Sharpton, of course.
