Just a tad overdramatic.
Via Beltway Confidential:
. . .Political analyst Michael Eric Dyson said that Romney was only falling back to his “natural reflex action” appealing to the “base bigotry” of the Republican base since he was in a “moment of crisis.”
Dyson also explained that Romney’s joke would actually be good for President Obama’s re-election.
“In this he’s revealing for us, I think that we should be grateful for this but it’s pretty scary to think that a political figure at that high a level is resorting to some of the basest, most despicable bigotry we can imagine.”
