• Mitt Romney Booed Several Times, Instead of Many Times, at NAACP

    Big victory for Mitt Romney today! This really shows that the Republican nominee might be making some inroads within the black community

    Addressing a predominantly black audience for just the second time on the campaign trail, presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney on Wednesday took his message to the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), delivering a speech that was received with mixed response — including multiple instances of prolonged boos

    To create jobs, he said, "I am going to eliminate every non-essential expensive program I can find. That includes Obamacare." His comments were met with extended boos from the audience.

    He was also booed when he told the largely black audience that "if you want a president who will make things better in the African American community, you are looking at him."

    On the whole, I'd say that went a lot better than most people expected.

    Also, has anyone considered the possibility that the crowd was just saying 'Yoooook!!!'?
