Mitt Romney is:
(a) a stiff robot who displays no emotion and is cold and calculating
(b) an angry man, with a temper.
Today, given the press coverage, it seems as if he's "b." Suddenly, Romney displays emotional valence! His temperament is at issue, according to the New Republic. Oh, and hey, he gives a bad interview to Fox News. Case closed. Romney's got a temper.
But compared to whom? To the candidate who castigates moderators who ask him questions during debates where there are supposed to be asked questions? This would be Newt Gingrich, no?
To a president who himself can be irritable during interviews, haughty during press conferences, and positively biting in private?
More of a temper than Bill Clinton? Or John McCain?
