Romney's Gaffes

Massimo Calabresi: "Romney built his lead in part on the strength of his largely mistake-free performances in the Republican debates of the last six months... But now and then you catch a glimpse of gaffability in Romney. About once during an appearance, his normally rigid discipline gives way to a kind of goofy spontaneity, which in turn can produce a potentially damaging misstep. Usually the errors are harmless, and even when they aren't, he's quick-witted and self-aware enough to find his way out. The biggest problem for Romney is that his blind spots tend to be for sensitive subjects, ones with potential resonance for an economically struggling and war-weary electorate. Which means an uncaught gaffe could be very costly indeed."
