Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney was giving a speech at the NAACP convention today and after told the crowd that he was going to eliminate every non-essential, expensive program which includes Obamacare. The audience then interrupted his speech with almost 15 seconds of booing.
After the catcalls died down, Romney went on to say that studies showed the ObamaCare would make business less likely to hire, and added, that if our priority is jobs, and that's also his priority, that's something I'd change and replace."
Romney also took the time to explain why he wanted to address the organization, since African-Americans voted overwhelmingly for President Obama in 2008. "With 90 percent of African-Americans voting for Democrats, some of you may wonder why a Republican would bother to campaign in the African-American community, and to address the NAACP. Of course, one reason is that I hope to represent all Americans, of every race, creed or sexual orientation, from the poorest to the richest and everyone in between."
Do you think he deserved it?
Could that actually help him with conservative voters?
