Mitt Romney Tweaks John Boehner, Talks About Emotions, Crying [View all]
Boehner has become the poster boy for Washington waterworks. His sensitive nature and habit of crying in public during powerful moments have provided plenty of fodder for late night television. Boehner's predecessor, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), has even taken aim in the past.
"He is known to cry," she said of Boehner in an interview with the New York Times. "He cries sometimes when we're having a debate on bills."
As for Romney, it's possible to show emotions -- and even cry -- without being on Boehner's level.
Asked about Romney's disposition last month, his wife Ann said that he was "very" emotional. Things such as movies, books and even the "hymns" Mitt speaks about so fondly, could bring a "tear to his eye," she said.
