I initially missed the Special Report interview and only caught the panel, which split on how Romney did. But my rule when there is a disagreement between Goldberg and Krauthammer is always to go with Goldberg. Sure enough, when I watched the interview later on my DVR I thought Jonah was right in panning it. The worst moment for me was when, in a fit of pique, Romney crossed his legs quickly and smoothed down the sides of his jacket. Let’s just say it wasn’t the most robust body language. His other instinct when he’s mad is to laugh insincerely and talk very quickly. It’s much better than yelling at people, but the first part of the interview demonstrated, relative to the usually buttoned-up Romney, a strange lack of composure.
