Romney Booed While Addressing NAACP

Mitt Romney didn't shy away from one of his chief campaign talking points during his morning speech at the NAACP convention, despite likely knowing that it wouldn't go over so well with the crowd.

A chorus of boos interrupted the Republican candidate’s speech after he mentioned his plan to repeal Obamacare. Romney paused, giving the boos a chance to ring in the convention hall, before departing from his script to cite a survey by the Chamber of Commerce that showed that the president’s health care plan would make business owners less likely to hire.

The audience settled down again after a few seconds, but not for good, the Associated Press reports. Romney was heckled again later in the speech for criticizing President Obama, after he said, "If you want a president who will make thing better in the African American community, you are looking at him."

Maybe with this crowd he should of saved the Obamacare nonsense by using the name of the legislation.. 

Maybe just maybe, he should of has a better stump speech than 'I will repeal Obamacare and replace it with 'something'.

Houston, we have real communication problem here.. the Governor isn't THAT out of touch is he?
