Stephen Hayes at the Weekly Standard notices that Mitt Romney is scoring with more emotion:

Many other (far more influential) people praised Romney for showing some emotion, too. And since then he has become emotional twice more – once on Meet the Press this weekend and again during a speech yesterday.

Jonathan Martin’s reporting suggests that the emotion could be a strategy…. Dangerous:

These moves come after months of aides and advisers pushing him to let his guard down some. They recognize that he does not always connect with voters. And that it’s no small part for the rise of the folksy Huck in Iowa.

Reminds me of Fred Thompson’s line against Romney, legit or not.

I think you got your verb wrong. It should read “feigning emotion” not “showing emotion”.

Mitt might shed a tear over the story of a poor, tortured creature of God.
