Vice President of the United States Joe Biden is scheduled to address the NAACP Convention Thursday. The convention which has been in Houston all week, concludes Thursday.
Thursday’s address will be Biden’s first to the NAACP as Vice President. He’s expected to offer a rebuttal to Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney who addressed convention-goers Wednesday.
Mitt Romney endured some claps as well as boos during his address Wednesday. The boos came after he announced that he’d get rid of Obama’s health care laws.
According to Romney, he would do more for the black community than President Obama. Romney also drew applause during his speech to the NAACP on Wednesday and received a standing ovation from half the audience at the end.
Vice President Joe Biden is the 47th and current Vice President of the United States, serving under President Barack Obama. As a member of the Democratic Party, Biden was a United States Senator from Delaware before assuming the office of Vice President of the United States.
President Barack Obama selected Biden to be the Democratic Party nominee for Vice President in the 2008 U.S. presidential election. Biden is the first Roman Catholic and the first Delawarean to become Vice President of the United States.
