debate moderator interrupted Romney 28 times

debate moderator interrupted 'the One' only 9 times.

Was it fair?

The question should be not only on the fairness of moderator but whether Romney behaved in a way that required interruptions.

I think Romney is certainly capable of grace and nicety. Perhaps he thinks he doesn't have to be like that to the President.

I think you gotta respect the office and the man. It is one think David Letterman makes a joke about president but as a presidential candidate you cannot be rude.

There were few times he was clearly rude and directly confrontational. May be the competitive private equity side of him is coming out in these debates.

I think he tried to explain a well intentioned positon with Binders comment and it just didn't come out.
