Mitt Romney's Awkward Exchanges With Humans

Posted: Updated:

It's no secret Mitt Romney's not the most personable politician around. He's been described in the media as wooden, stiff, robotic, unable to relate to voters, out of touch, and as 'America's awkward stepdad.'

The Onion put it another way with this recent headline: "Mitt Romney's Goal To Connect With One Voter By The Time This Is All Over."

Despite Romney's increased effort to appear casual and charming to voters -- he stopped wearing a tie on the stump and enlisted the help of his wife, Anne, to bring a more personal touch to the campaign -- Romney has had a tough time jibing with the average Joe. Check out some of the best Romney-meets-humans moments:
