Mitt Romney Has Lively Exchange With Woman At Campaign Event

Campaigning in Lebanon, NH Wednesday evening, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney got into a feisty exchange with a woman who accused him of pandering to the anti-government mood in part of the electorate even though most Americans expect the government to help after disasters etc.

Romney gets a little testy when the woman repeatedly interrupts his response. Part of the rap against the former Massachusetts governor, at least from some critics, is that he can be robotic. He was anything but in this exchange.
