Romney seemed completely controlled, not engaging where and when and to his desired degree on every point.

Can anyone think of a time #OccupyResoluteDesk has faced an interview of even half this rigor?

Via Althouse, the transcript.

    Romney promised he’d repeal of all of ObamaCare on “day one”. Now he says there’s a number of initiatives in ObamaCare he likes and will keep. For example some people like keeping their adult children on their policy — at the expense of who?, people who don’t have children? Is this the etch-a-sketch president? Looks to me like he’s reneging on a promise.

  • sharon

    Not sure if he is reneging or not. He has always said repeal and replace. I myself want the whole enchilada repealed. I have told the GOP many times since the inception of Obamacare that I will no longer donate anything until it is completely repealed. It looks as if I will be giving to individual candidates for perhaps the rest of my life.

    It’s NBC, it’s David Gregory for crying out loud. They’re weasels, professional weasels, but still rodentia capable of carrying hanta virus. I hope Romney washed his hands.

  • Patricia Leath

    I was impressed. Romney made Gregory look like the fool that he is.

  • steveb

    He is unflappable and genuine. He doesn’t get ruffled or riled at all, no matter what they throw at him. If you don’t vote for this guy,and he doesn’t win, you will remember how America used to be, because it will never be the same, and all you will have is a memory of America.

  • steveb

    Looks like you’re trying to pick a fight.

  • Elias Schewel

    What about the time Obama got interviewed by Bill O’Reilly? Wasn’t that _at least_ as “rigorous” as this interview? (I think they were both silly interviews.)

  • gwhalen

    Great interview, I thought David Gregory asked great questions and was fair…just wish he’d do the same when interviewing the pres!

  • Tanuki Man

    Gregory looks like Dr. Zaius’s bastard cousin.
