Stephen A. Smith Doesn't Want Black Voters to Blindly Support Democrats (VIDEO)

Appearing on 'Parker Spitzer' (weekdays 8PM ET on CNN), radio host Stephen A. Smith expressed his belief that Democrats have been "taking the black vote for granted."

"We (as black people) don't sit back and say 'you know what, I'm not just going to give my vote to the Democratic party.' I want to stand by as an individual, with individual opinions, I want to see what you're offering, if you're the Republican party. I want to see what you're offering as the Democratic party, and I want to gauge what's in my best interest. The black community has not done that for decades."

After Smith explained his position, Eliot Spitzer wondered if Smith would actually consider a Republican over Barack Obama in 2012

"I would strongly, strongly consider Mitt Romney, for one reason and one reason only: The man knows how to make money."

Did Smith just come up with Romney's 2012 campaign slogan? We think he may have.
