I couldn’t help but take note of Mitt Romney’s facial expressions during the GOP debate in Jacksonville, Florida. I sat with my camera phone just to catch these moments, which seemed to occur any time another GOP candidate was speaking. I don’t believe that Romney has a dangerous amount of elitism – any different than any other wealthy, successful politician – but it’s really hard to not think of Romney as condescending and self-indulged, when he makes faces like the ones above; Seriously, if someone made these faces while you were talking, wouldn’t you go straight to your PACs and ask them to make more negative campaigns?
More of Romney’s faces are on Hanky Swanky, the official Tumblr for Avenue Swank. Check it out!
