NAACP Cool Toward Romney's Overtures

Republican White House hopeful Mitt Romney drew loud boos Wednesday when he pledged to repeal President Barack Obama's health law in a speech to the country's largest civil rights organization.

The presumptive Republican presidential nominee pulled few punches in delivering a variation on his standard stump speech to the annual NAACP convention, enduring sustained boos when he vowed to overturn "Obamacare."

The unfriendly reception continued when Mr. Romney told the crowd, "If you want a president who will make things better in the African-American community, you are looking at him."
