Romney NAACP Speech Audience Looks Less Than Excited (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

When Mitt Romney spoke at the NAACP Convention in Houston on Wednesday, he was up against a group that tends to support his opponent, and the opposing party in general. Romney said it himself in his speech, acknowledging that "90 percent of African Americans [vote] for Democrats."

The audience was generally receptive to his speech, even applauding a few times. But many audience members booed when he mentioned repealing Obamacare.

Photos taken of the audience at Romney's speech showed people who seemed relatively unenthused about what Romney had to say.
