Time for Romney to Get Out of His Comfort Zone

Mitt Romney holds his first town hall in two months today in Grand Junction, Colo., and it's a smart move. The more practice he gets in responding in the moment, the better he's likely to do in press conferences, town halls and debates when the heat is on this fall.

The run-up to the election has shown that the presumptive GOP nominee isn't always the smoothest when it comes to handling unexpected questions or comments. And it's not just those multiple unforced reminders that he has a lot of money.

At his last town hall, on May 7 in Euclid, Ohio, a man asked him why he had taken $1.5 million in foreign tax credits. He laughed and said he didn't think he'd paid any foreign income tax -- not exactly an answer. Romney also ran into a buzz saw for something he didn't say at that meeting.
