The Romney Pitch – Melissa Harris-Perry MSNBC

I was privileged to join Melissa Harris-Perry and her other guests in the New York studios of MSNBC on the Saturday morning after the Republican convention in Tampa. Melissa was keen to explore with us why so many of the statements made by leading Republicans at the convention failed to pass the ‘fact-checker’ test. She was keen too to explore the adequacy of the policies on offer in Tampa, and the extent to which (if at all) there was a sub-text there: was there an antipathy to minorities, especially to African Americans. The resulting conversation was, to put it mildly, not just informative but also lively! Political commentary and disagreement at temperature!
