Mitt Romney’s Surprising Heartfelt Moment
March 2, 2012 by staff
Mitt Romney’s Surprising Heartfelt Moment, Ohio-It was one of Mitt Romney’s best moments on the campaign trail. At a town hall here Wednesday at Capital University, a man stood up and told the Republican presidential candidate that he strongly admired his long career in the private sector and in politics. But, the man said, could Romney show that he actually has a heart?
It could have been an awkward moment, especially for Romney–who has struggled with his sometimes robotic persona on the campaign stump. Romney aides have long been nervous about putting the candidate in unscripted situations that could easily turn hostile and lead him off the message of the day. They point to John McCain’s rolling news conferences on his campaign bus and his endless town halls in 2008 as a sign that a presidential candidate needs to be more disciplined to win.
To the voter in Bexley, Romney, already loose from what was a largely freewheeling question and answer session with voters, bluntly admitted he has a problem.
“Most people just see you in the debates,” Romney told the man. “And so we stand there all in our suits, you know, we’re all wearing white shirts, blue suits, black shoes, and either a red or blue tie. We all stand there looking somewhat alike and get 60 seconds to answer questions like, How do we bring peace to the world? And in settings like that, why, people don’t get to know you very well. And in settings like this, with questions like that, you can get to know me a little bit better.”
