Obama Skips Tradition of Attending NAACP Convention

Hosted by

President Barack Obama spoke at the NAACP centennial convention last year, but is raising some eyebrows this year for being a no-show. George Bush was slammed for being the only president since Herbert Hoover to turn down invitations to speak at the organization's annual convention, until he finally accepted its invitation during his second term. This year the President is sending First Lady Michelle Obama to speak. Wayne Bennett, who blogs as "The Field Negro," is an attorney in the Philadelphia Family Courts.
