I've got it ! Finally figured it out. Romney knows that he is considered aloof, arrogant, self absorbed heartless and cold, in short a bad listener, while Obama is a Harvard Law Review President, Chicago law teacher regular guy you can have a bear with. Why, why asks Romney is he considered a better listener than me ?
Then he had a bright idea and called to his aid (I don't remember the aid's name but hell neither does Mitt). "Aid Aid Can you find someone in the USA with even bigger ears than Obama ?"
