Appearing as a panel member on Friday's Inside Washington on PBS, Bloomberg View's Margaret Carlson - formerly of Time magazine - asserted that Mitt Rommey "wanted the boos" he received as he delivered his speech to the NAACP.

She went on to say the GOP presidential candidate is "taking those boos to his fund-raiser with Dick Cheney," and that "he's so proud of them."

Host Gordon Peteron brought up the subject and posed to her: "When Obama is talking to the NAACP and he says he's going to get rid of Obamacare, he's not really talking to the NAACP, is he, Margaret?"

Carlson responded:

No, Romney aides would have you believe this is his "sister Souljah moment," so he's, you know, he's, he's he's saying this and, however, he's, he's not speaking to the group in the room.

He wanted the boos. He's taking those boos to his fund-raiser with Dick Cheney in Wyoming. He put the boos in the overhead bin, carrying them out there. He's so proud of them.
