In the 19th debate of the primary season, and the first one of 2012, Mitt Romney's job was simple: maintain frontrunner status. And since none of his fellow candidates really came out swinging at the former Massachusetts governor, he did just that.
However, we couldn't help but notice something peculiar about everything Mitt Romney had to say. When you put all of his comments together, you begin to notice an
embarrassingly defensive almost musical pattern to his speech.
Watch our Mitt Romney mix above to see what we're talking about. He may be the frontrunner, but if this is what he sounds like when the gloves are on, we'll be preparing to add a drumbeat to the video once Newt takes his off.
