Vice President Joe Biden told a NAACP meeting in Houston, Texas that he had to cut his remarks short "but this is preaching to the choir."

"The House of Representatives Republicans voted affirmatively to prevent the Justice Department from even investigating whether or not there was voter suppression, " Biden said. "Folks, there's a lot more to say, but this is preaching to the choir. Let me close, my friends, by saying, I mean this sincerely, just close your eyes and imagine. Imagine what the Romney Justice Department will look like."

Biden, CBS reporter Mark Knoller reports, exited the stage with Stevie Wonder's "Signed, Sealed, Delivered" playing in the background. 

President Obama did not attend the conference, but delivered a video address to the group. Republican Mitt Romney delivered a speech there yesterday.
