Romney: I Knew I Would Be Booed

Mitt Romney's speech at the NAACP's 103rd annual convention took a turn for the worse when he declared, as president, he'd repeal Obamacare—although Romney claimed later on Fox Business News that he knew he would be booed. The Republican presidential candidate received jeers and boos from the audience who'd been applauding demurly until then. "If you want a President who will fight for African Americans, you are looking at him,” Romney said. Speaking on the more Republican-friendly Fox Business News, Romney said "I think we expected that, of course." House minority leader Nancy Pelosi weighed in on the booing on Wednesday night, saying that she believed that Romney "wanted" to be ridiculed. Meanwhile, Rush Limbaugh, calling the NAACP is the NAACLP with the extra "l' for liberal, said Romney "sounded like Snow White with testicles" and Romney was booed because he's white.
