GlossyNews.com – In a rare break from election cycle protocol, Governor Mitt Romney was permitted to stand before a crowd of reporters, in what they all agreed was the very moment they had been waiting for in the 16-months they’ve been following his inhuman campaign.

The presidential campaign can be hard on anyone, and can try your emotions. In 2008 the election was so stressful that John McCain allegedly raised his arms above 45-degrees, and Sarah Palin was driven to buy $45,000 worth of shoes. It’s not easy on anyone.
It wasn’t a scripted moment, and it didn’t appeared forced, when Governor Romney “showed emotion”. Barkley Jones from the Christian Science Monitor described it as “deeply touching and wholly surprising.”
Amie Holmes from Sunset Magazine called it “a uniquely touching moment of humanity… from an otherwise inhuman man.”
Jason Granholm from Popular Robotics called this display, “totally uncharactaristic and completely disappointing,” adding, “this isn’t what we expected when we nominated Governor Romney, if you can even call him that.”
Undecided voter Kaela Gunnette said, “If I had seen this, if I had even known he was capable of human emotion, it probably would have swayed my vote.” When asked who she would have voted for, she said, “Oh I don’t know, I really haven’t been following the election all that closely.”
Ann Romney has gone on the record already saying that this humanizes Governor Romney, and that it means that people should vote for him, but then again, that’s what she would say, isn’t it… I mean, she does want to be the first lady, so take her talk with a grain of salt, am I right?
Conversely, Ann Romney refused to issue a comment on the donkey show that was allegedly taking place in the bowels of the arena where she stood so proud on the stage… so I guess we all have our price, don’t we?
