A November surprise?? posted a 2007 video of Romney coming completely unglued in a radio interview with Jan Mickleson. Apparently, Mitt had no knowledge that a camera was  running through the commercial break.

Watch him get so pissed, he literally got in Mickleson's face (watch the reflection in the window) before he walked off the set.

The interview was done in Iowa and I tell you, I suspect evangelicals will have problems with Mitt's theology.

The tape just resurfaced this past Wednesday and has already gotten 1.2 million hits.  

Wow!! Maybe that's why Ann was crying in Colorado.

Let's set the table this way:

In the waning days of the 2012 presidential campaign, a clip from a 2007 Mitt Romney interview has resurfaced, the dual purposes of which seems to be to otherize the Mormon candidate’s religion, and to raise questions about his temperament. The video, filmed without Romney’s knowledge during a commercial break on Iowa radio host Jan Mickelson‘s show, features a fired-up Romney explaining, among other things, his religion’s view on Missouri’s role in the apocalypse, and the role Mormonism’s freedom of choice plays in his abandonment of pro-choice politics. The full video of that interview is epic, and revealing.

If you just watch the clip that’s been getting all the attention (over a million hits since Wednesday), Romney comes off like a lunatic, and for undecided voters who may have trouble remembering which Mary had the little lamb as opposed to Jesus’ mother, his conversation with Mickelson over Missouri’s role in the End Times must sound like Klingon badminton rules. To most of us, the fact that these two guys agree that Jesus will come back and “split the Mount of Olives” to “stop the war that’s coming in to kill all the Jews,” and only disagree on the existence of a Missouri satellite office, means they’re closer together than they are far apart (Obama supporters know that He has already come back, and will defeat Satan with His awesome ground game in Ohio).

Here's the argument during the commercial break:

Mitt Romney doesn't have the temperament to run this country.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
