Nancy Pelosi: Romney Wanted to Get Booed at the NAACP...or Something

Yesterday Mitt Romney addressed the NAACP Convention in Houston, Texas. He received a standing ovation at the end of his remarks and appaluse throughout, but the majority of people and the media have chosen to focus on one particular instance during the speech when Romney received boos for promising to repeal ObamaCare. Now, Nancy Pelosi is claiming Romney planned and made a "calculated" move to get booed.

“I think it was a calculated move on his part to get booed at the NAACP convention," she told Bloomberg TV.

 





Meanwhile, the NAACP made a point to attack Romney after his speech by releasing the following statement: 


“We are pleased that Governor Romney addressed our convention today,” stated NAACP Chairman Roslyn M. Brock. “This morning Governor Romney laid out his policy agenda for this nation. Unfortunately, much of his agenda is at odds with what the NAACP stands for – whether the issue is equal access to affordable health care, reforming our education system or the path forward on marriage equality.  We appreciate that he was courageous and took the opportunity to speak with us directly.”

“While we are glad that Governor Romney recognized the power of the black electorate, he laid out an agenda that was antithetical to many of our interests,” stated NAACP President Benjamin Todd Jealous.  “His criticism of the Affordable Care Act – legislation that will improve access to quality health care for millions – signals his fundamental misunderstanding of the needs of many African Americans.”
