NAACP Crowd Boos Romney

Mitt Romney

In perhaps the least surprising news of the week so far, Mitt Romney found himself on the receiving end of a loud chorus of boos when he promised to repeal Obamacare during a speech before the NAACP.

"If our goal is jobs, we have to stop spending over a trillion dollars more than we take in every year. So to do that, I'm going to eliminate every non-essential, expensive program I can find. That includes Obamacare, and I'm going to work to reform and save," Romney said.

Romney otherwise encountered polite applause in his speech, which hit on themes of jobs and the economy — mainstays of the presumptive Republican presidential nominee's overall stump speech — as well as education reform.

Romney joked about the fact that he's unlikely to win over many African American voters. "I appreciate the chance to speak first — even before Vice President Biden gets his turn tomorrow," he said. "I just hope the Obama campaign won’t think you’re playing favorites."

Perhaps that "joke" will be more funny after the election.
