Skip to comments.Ann Romney: Mitt can be "wild and crazy"
Posted on 05/01/2012 6:45:50 AM PDT by dayglored
The notion that Mitt Romney is still or unpersonable is a narrative that's just not true, his wife Ann Romney said Tuesday on "CBS This Morning."
"I think in politics this is what always happens," Ann Romney said. "There is a narrative, you like to put someone in a box and keep them in a box."
But taking Mitt playfully by the shoulders, Ann Romney said Tuesday, "I still look at him as the boy that I met in high school when he was playing all the jokes and really just being crazy, pretty crazy. And so there's a wild and crazy man inside of there just waiting to come out!"

What's troubling is the idea that his wife has to say stuff like this to make him appear likable. I'm glad she likes him. Luckily, I don't have to.
NO ROMNEY, NO WAY!
Thanks GOP-e you sure picked a winner this time! NOT!!
I really didn’t need to know this.
I gotta get to work in a few minutes, but I'll rejoin the thread later today... have fun y'all....
Yeah, it does have a “TMI” aspect to it...
Damn....you beat me by 12 seconds.
Need more caffeine.............
I know Mitt Romney is about as exciting as plain oatmeal (and about as structurally sound) but I don’t really *want* a “wild and crazy” guy. I want a President. I want a leader who believes in the Constitution as the supreme law of the land. I want somebody mature and composed, as opposed to the perpetual 11-year-old we’ve got in the White House now.
The fact that Romney may be the kind of guy who organizes his sock drawer doesn’t matter to me. I don’t trust him because of his stands on issues, not because he thinks “Girls Gone Wild” is his wife and three of her friends playing a particularly aggressive hand of bridge.
Perhaps Americans are due for some “boring” in the Whitehouse.
Imagine whole days at a time, without breathless 24/7 news coverage about what the president had for lunch, or reading yet another tele-prompter.
No more drama! And way more egomania please.
This poster is seriesly getting “attention wh*re democrats” fatigue.
Typo: “... way less egomania please”.
I want a President. I want a leader who believes in the Constitution as the supreme law of the land. . .
That’s all I want. Is there anyway to hold a President Romney’s feet to the fire to make sure he abides by the constitution if he is elected?
Yeah, Mitt actually drank a soda, once.
And he stayed up once way past midnight.
Seriously, what sort of drugs is Mrs. Romeny on at the time being? Don’t these people HIRE people to help them avoid saying stuff like this?
They are so desperate. It’s just sad. Even more sad for us.
I heard one time, the walk/don’t walk signal said “don’t walk”, and Mitt just walked right across the street anyways. He’s crazy.
Seen on a tourist-type shot glass, in Utah:
“Eat drink and be merry, for tomorrow we may be in Utah”.
Just awful. Stick with Presidential.
One time he put “pop rocks” in his magic underwear and wet his pants “just a little”...
I read that one time he opened a box of Bran Flakes from the bottom!
I heard he once went through the Express Lane with MORE than 10 items.
Sometimes he drinks Country Time Lemonade in a coffee mug!
oh geeez...please oh please don’t make the attempt to convince us Mitt is a cool doood!
Really...all Mitt has to do is appear presidential - which can be boring, but that’s ok.
People are tired of the totalitarian tendencies of the immature incompetent man-child.
That is crazy. Do we really want someone who is that out of control with their finger on the button?
We already have “wild and crazy”! I’ve never seen anything wilder or crazier than what I’ve seen over the past 3 years. No thanks.
The last time we had a major politician who never smoked or drank or ate meat, it didn’t turn out so well....now what was that guys name....Schickelgruber, or something like that.
Whatever happened to the days when a President didn’t have to be “wild and crazy,” “hip’” “cool,” be witty or try to act like an eternal teenager? I guess that it’s a product of the 24/7 news as entertainment culture. Personally, I’ll take someone who is conservative, Constitutional, qualified, and loves America. In other words, someone unlike Obama or Romney.
Romney may not be the best candidate we could end up with, but he’s constitutional, qualified and loves America.
Not sure about the conservative part.
Still, he’s not a communist. And he’s never eaten dog meat.
Here is a clip of how Mitt's life was changed forever:
“hip” = “lacking in character”
You’re comparing the likely GOP nominee, to Adolph Hitler??
“And so there’s a wild and crazy man inside of there just waiting to come out!”
I know “wild and crazy” and Romney is not and never will be wild and crazy.
Romney is not a conservative, he never has been and never will be.
And how to do you know about the part?
Congratulations. I think that you've just locked up the understatement of the year award on FR. ;-)
Other than not being Obama, there is nothing about Romney to convince anyone that he isn't a disaster in the making.
Think hard on this !
“If Mitt wins the nomination, as seems very likely, I will enthusiastically support his candidacy. For my friends who have hesitation on that score, I’d just ask you to keep four things in mind: Justice Scalia just turned 78, Justice Kennedy will turn 78 later this year, Justice Breyer will be 76 in August, and Justice Ginsburg turned 81 about a week ago. We wish them all well, of course, but the brute fact is that whoever we elect as president in November is almost certainly going to choose at least one and maybe more new members of the Supreme Court — in addition to hundreds of other life-tenured federal judges, all of whom will be making momentous decisions about our lives for decades to come. If you don’t think it matters whether the guy making those calls is Mitt Romney or Barack Obama, I think you’re smokin’ something funky.” —columnist Andrew McCarthy
if you do not vote against obama.....s**t may hit the fan..do you feel lucky?
He’s not a communist.
And he’s never eaten dog meat.
(h/t Glenn Beck radio show)
I wish that she would stop talking about him. It’s nauseating.
Is it bad I read the headline as “Ann Coulter” rather than “Ann Romney?”
Yes it is bad, in a LOL sort of way.
Willard McBush WANTS polygamy in the afterlife. It makes him no different from practicing it NOW.
Secretary of State: “But Brawndo’s got what plants crave. It’s got electrolytes.”
“Well, I’ve never seen no plants grow out of no toilet.”
Ick, I really don't need the vision.
man inside of there just waiting to come out
Way too much information.
I hear he’s a pretty conservative type guy...........
Mitt can be “wild and crazy”
Can’t see it. We are going to be begging for Joe Biden to come back.
