“I love being in Michigan,” said soon-to-be GOP Presidential candidate Mitt Romney at a stump speech in the Great Lakes state. “Everything seems right here. You know, I come back to Michigan; the trees are the right height. The grass is the right color for this time of year, kind of a brownish-greenish sort of thing. It just feels right.”
This odd little compliment (?) is evidence of a certain problem that some voters have with Romney. To his detractors, the man just seems to struggle with relating to the common man. Between interesting little moments like this, bouts of uncomfortable laughter, stories about strapping dogs to car roofs, and impromptu Baha Men performances, some have come to question his authenticity as a candidate.
Some have even taken it a step beyond that to question his authenticity as a human being.
Now, I have plenty of opinions about Mitt Romney, but I don't subscribe to the notion that he's an alien or some sort of cyborg. But the fact remains, some voters are hesitant of a guy who seems uncomfortable in his own skin at times.
Enter James Lipton, the 85-year-old master thespian and host of Bravo's Inside the Actors Studio. He has some advice for the eventual nominee, you know, in order to help him act a bit more...human?
A tinge political in his delivery? Admittedly. Nonetheless, Lipton brings the subtle humor as always. Check it out below:
