Mitt Romney's 1981 arrest and 4 other times he lost his cool

Interesting "well-guarded temper."

Fans of truly explosive political fireworks may have been disappointed when the seemingly unflappable Mitt Romney won the Republican nod to face the famously no-drama President Obama. But flashes of Romney's well-guarded temper have made cameo appearances on the campaign trail, and BuzzFeed's Andrew Kaczynski just unearthed a gem from Romney's past: A three-decade-old arrest for clashing with a law officer. Here, a look at that tale and four classic "Mitt-frontations" (as his family calls them)

C'mon. At least on the disorderly charge

admit that if this thing happened to some we were sympathetic with we'd all agree the cop was harassing the guy and overstepped his authority. Sounds like Romney was being a smartass and the cop abused his power.

Didn't read all the others. Romney would be a bad president even if he'd never lost his cool in this life.

check out the attached video at the bottom of that article:

during the 2008 election cycle, the MORON actually loses his cool, into a protracted argument with Jan Mickelson over Mormonism and abortion!

Jan! The most 'powerful' voice of radio in Iowa! And Mutt Wrongney loses it, with him??

What an idiot!

Wow, that's the first time I've seen THAT video of Mitt!!!!

I've watched a few vids showing how he gets made at reporters, walks off and then goes back for more...but this video, with the arms waving and totally on the defence, cutting off the radio host, not listening, not willing to hear what the host is trying to say...
