In debates and life, Romney likes the rules
WASHINGTON (AP) -- When it comes to debates, Mitt Romney loves the rules.
The Republican presidential candidate is quick in debates to point out when the rules are broken. Romney bickered with moderator Jim Lehrer in the first debate over whose turn it was to speak. When he tried that in the second debate, moderator Candy Crowley told him it doesn't quite work like that. He even explained the rules in detail to Texas Gov. Rick Perry in a primary debate last year.
Order, discipline and attention to detail have been frequent themes throughout Romney's life.
Romney typically only answers questions from reporters during designated times. He adheres strictly to the tenants of his faith. And every summer his family holds a highly regimented series of games dubbed the "Romney Olympics."
