Sad Politicians: Romney being Booed

Mitt Romney, valiantly fighting an uphill battle, was booed while speaking at the 103rd NAACP Convention in Houston on July 11th.  Reportedly the harshest round of booing came when he reiterated his goal to repeal the Affordable Care Act.  This made him sad:

To his credit however he both finished the speech and garnered sporadic applause and even a reserved ovation.  At a later speech in Montana he responded to additional heckling honestly with, “[I] want people to know what I stand for and if I don’t stand for what they want, go vote for someone else, that’s just fine.”
