Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney spoke at the NAACP’s annual convention in Houston on Wednesday. Later in the day, Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter spoke on behalf of the Democratic National Committee to call the speech “nonsense.” During his address to the NAACP, Romney’s promise to repeal Obamacare was met with boos. This did not surprise Mayor Nutter.
“Black folks are not going to sit there and listen to some of that nonsense,” Nutter said when asked if the boos surprised him. “Clearly Mitt Romney has no real plan for the African American community or frankly for America.”
