|I doubt that Romney thought he'd change many minds among African-Americans when he spoke to the group and I'm not convinced that was even his strategy. The speech sounded like it was designed not for the audience in the room, but for those in Republican living rooms.
It sounded as though he wanted to show force and fearlessness: "Look folks, I walked into hostile territory unafraid and unbowed." This was his version of a Daniel in the lions' den speech.
