(Reuters) – Mitt Romney, stiff?
“He’s not. He’s funny,” Ann Romney, the Republican presidential candidate’s wife, told “CBS This Morning” on Tuesday, defending her husband against public perceptions that he is inaccessible and has a “likeability gap” with voters.
“I still look at him as this is the boy that I met, in high school, when he was pulling all the jokes, and really just being crazy. Pretty crazy. So there’s a wild and crazy man inside of him … just waiting to come out.”
Romney is a multimillionaire businessman whose gaffes on the campaign trail have created an image of the candidate as rich, stiff and out of touch with the average American.
