Romney Says He Knew He’d Be Booed at NAACP

Mitt Romney said after being booed at the NAACP today that he “expected” the strong objection in response to his pledge to repeal President Obama’s health care law.

The black audience members rained boos on Romney three times during his speech — first when he said he’d repeal the health law, once when he said Obama’s record proves he hasn’t done enough on the economy and other matters, and once when he told them that he would be a president who makes the lives of African-Americans better.

In a friendly-territory interview on Fox Business Network, Romney told the Republican-fond host Neil Cavuto, “I think we expected that, of course.”
