Mitt Romney is weird. When the Obama reelection campaign early in the cycle made the mistake of indicating that its strategy would be to imply that Mitt Romney is weird by repeatedly telling Politico that it planned on calling Mitt Romney weird, Romneys camp countered by causing a brief and not particularly sincere media brouhaha over whether weird is code for Mormon. Plenty of Americans think Mormons are weird, yes, but in this case, the simple fact is Mitt Romney is weird, entirely apart from his religion.
All video of him attempting to interact with normal humans is cringe-inducing, as a cursory YouTube search quickly demonstrates. (Martin Luther King Day, Jacksonville, Fla., 2008: Mitt poses for a picture with some cheerful young parade attendees. As he squeezes in to the otherwise all-black group, he says, apropros of nothing, Who let the dogs out? Woof, woof!) He seems to have been told that small talk is mostly made up of cheerfully delivered non sequiturs.
Romney recently told People magazine, I tasted a beer and tried a cigarette once, as a wayward teenager, and never did it again. Im not sure we should believe him. Theres no way in hell I can imagine Mitt Romney loosening up enough to have a beer.

You think they were hard on W? You ain't seen nuthin' yet.
I believe Weird Willard is actually a robot.
GOP-E, he’s all yours....enjoy....I won’t be a part of it.
I understand that FR is not a pro-Romney site, but since he will be the nominee and is less bad than Obama, why should it become an anti-Romney site?
When gauging a man’s weirdness, I look at his wife.
If she seems ok, he’s probably not as bad as you think.
Mittens & Mother of 5 are definitely less weird than Mooch & Barry.
That’s just the nature of this site. All or nothing.
Holy cow....I'm beginning to think this guy IS a robot, and that he's on the verge of a systems blowout.
He’s an Auton not a robot.
“I understand that FR is not a pro-Romney site, but since he will be the nominee and is less bad than Obama”
You comparison is simply a lie situational conservatives tell themselves to justify voting for a democrat with an (R) after his name.
That's where I'm at as well. They pushed romney on the voters...now they can live with it and run the show against Obama on their own.
It was my pleasure to tell the caller from the GOP I would be voting conservative and it would not be for Romney. A slight pause.. then they continued their script to solicite money...with each breath lowering the amount they wanted. My answer was NO I would not be supporting the GOP under any circumstances as they had proven they are not listening to the American people and what they want.
Obama is so gay.
Oh...do you believe that we should all just cast aside principle and kiss his ring now after he spent millions in destroying the candidacy of other candidates?
The article is just the vanguard of the attack that will now be unleashed on Romney by the press. He has no chance in hell of defeating Obama. I, for one, will hold him responsible for giving Obama a second term.
I’m not sure how Jim’s going to handle this awkward place....I can’t see FR supporting either...rather focusing on conservative bills...topics and those who represent us in congress.
Such as with Scotus...opposing those who will not abide by the constitution. No matter how the picture is there are still conservative prinicples we can fight for...
Good job, caww.
I like it!
When Ann speaks and he is next to her, he has this wierd half smile on his face...same one he had during the debates, no matter what the other candidates were saying about him. Reminds me of the Joker.
In the vid, his hand is flung across the women’s shoulder in a creepy way, coming forward too far over her shoulder.
Obviously, he is trying to be cool...but the inappropriate gesture makes the photo op all the more wierd.
Romney is a full on liberal socialist who runs as a republican because he knows that some will vote GOP no matter what.
Its pretty obvious that many would vote for Obama is he changed parties and that’s no exaggeration.
