Romney: No, I don't know if that's a byproduct of it, and it's not why we're doing this, but I, I would hope that all of these things bring light to everything where we, where people have misperceptions about not just this faith, but maybe someone else's faith, and that, and again, it was that same experience that I learned, um, with my MS, and coming to the conclusion that you really need to look to the heart and soul of someone, and see where they're coming from. And certainly if people look at our heart and soul, they will understand that we're in this race to make a difference, and to help, and that we share the values of most Americans, and um, yes, we have our faith, and you know, we do believe that Jesus Christ is our personal savior, so, you know, I think that a lot of people need to, to maybe get used to.
Snow: Could you see voting for someone who's faith you don't understand well? For example, I don't know, someone who is a member of Islam, or, or Jewish? Would you have any trouble?
Romney: I would hope that people take the measure of the man or the woman. And, and take that, and recognize too, that people have faith traditions that may be a little different, but looking for the similarities that, that bind us together.
The Human Factor
Snow: The columnists weren't very kind to you, maybe you didn't read it, but in 1994, some of them called you a Stepford wife. They weren't very kind about it.
Snow: They thought you were too perfect. What do you, what do you say to them? Here's your chance. What do you, what do you say to people who say, you're just, it's cookie cutter, it's too perfect?
Romney: Well, you know, those, those things happen, and that's why I don't like the print media as much, um, and they're able to characterize things I think in ways that you don't like.
Snow: Did you ever get angry?
Romney: Yeah, I did. That, that really did make me angry.
Snow: Does Mitt get angry?
Romney: Oh, yeah.
Snow: He doesn't swear, right?
Romney: On occasion.
Snow: He does on occasion (laughs) About ten years ago, you said you had never heard him swear, but now you have?
Romney: (Laughs) Probably when that article came out. (Laughs) No, this, you know, obviously he has, he has moments, and I do too. Where you know, you lose, you lose.
Snow: You're human.
Snow: You lose your cool.
Romney: Lose your cool!
Snow: But he does seem very level.
Romney: He's very measured, and he's very practical, and he really, he really loves to evaluate problems, and to be level headed about it. He was very good in raising the boys. I have to say that, I'd come home, you know, I'd want to be pulling my hair, with these five boys. He was very good.
