Romney Struggles to Handle Confrontation

Chris Cillizza: "We've long believed -- based on direct observation of Romney and conversations with those who know him well -- that the former governor's success in a campaign setting is directly proportional to the number of rules that govern it. So, in debates and big speeches -- both of which are very rule-heavy, Romney excels because he can master the rules of engagement and then execute against them. On the other end of the spectrum is stumping on the campaign trail. There is no blueprint for how to interact with voters in a diner in New Hampshire... To be clear, Romney's struggle with confrontations hasn't hurt him much -- if at all -- in the primary race to date... But you can be sure the Obama team has taken note of these Mitt-frontations and will do everything they can to poke at Romney if and when he becomes the Republican nominee."
