Following up on Mitt Romney's speech to the NAACP, Vice President Biden told the organization today to think about what a Republican administration would do with civil rights cases.
&amp;amp;quot;Imagine what the Romney Justice Department will look like,&amp;amp;quot; Biden told the NAACP convention in Houston.
&amp;amp;quot;Imagine what the Supreme Court will look like after four years of a Romney presidency,&amp;amp;quot; the vice president said.
Biden jokingly suggested Romney's legal adviser would be Robert Bork, the conservative jurist whose 1987 nomination to the Supreme Court was rejected in part because of his past criticism of some civil rights laws.
