Sarah Palin sounded off on Mitt Romney's NAACP speech on Thursday, criticizing Democrats like House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi for theorizing that the presidential candidate wanted to get booed.
During an appearance on Fox News' 'On the Record with Greta Van Susteren,' Palin was asked if she would have advised Romney to speak at the conference, where the audience booed the presumptive Republican nominee for pledging to repeal Obama's health care law.
'Heck yeah, I am so glad he went there,' Palin said.
When Van Susteren asked the former Alaska governor what she thought of Pelosi's suggestion that Romney had 'calculated' the negative response, Palin said the congresswoman was 'paranoid.'
'You know what they would say if he didn't show up,' Palin said. 'They would say he's racist and chose not to speak to this group. You know, that is one paranoid politician who would take such a stretch there ... and accuse him of this false accusation.'
