Weâ€™re not sure why he even bothered.
At the NAACPâ€™s convention in Houston, Republican candidate for president Mitt Romney told the audience that heâ€™s a better choice than President Barack Obama to help build their neighborhoods and lessen unemployment among African Americans.
However, for his trouble, Romney was greeted with boos when he pledged to repeal â€œObamacare.â€ Thatâ€™s the name Republicans have given the Affordable Health Care act that was passed by a Democratic congress and was recently upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court.
Romney said he wouldnâ€™t be running for president if he didnâ€™t think he could do a better job than Obama, the nationâ€™s first black president.
But Romney is unlikely to win the black vote. Some 95 percent of black voters backed Obama in 2008.
Romney was heckled at another point in the speech when he criticized Obama.
