Mitt Romney addressed the NAACP's annual meeting on July 11, 2012.

Yesterday, Mitt Romney spoke to the NAACP at their national meeting in Houston, Texas. And from the first few words, it seemed the audience was receptive to him. But about halfway through the speech, things took a turn. For 15 seconds, the crowd booed. Romney, for his part, maintained his composure, smiling, until the booing died down.

Could this be one of the worst moments on the Romney campaign trail? Or, alternatively, one of the best? Takeaway contributor and Republican political strategist Ron Christie shares his thoughts.
