Cheryl, a teacher from Colorado, was asked to participate in a roundtable with Mitt Romney. In this video she shares her impression after talking with him and how her views on education are different than Mitt Romney's.

As Cheryl shares:

"He said, "...I understand there's a teacher here today, which one of you is the teacher?" So I raised my hand thinking that's a good thing; he's interested in education. But it wasn't a good thing."

Sorry, but we've got a pretty sizable amount of corroborating material, straight from Romney's mouth, that suggests she's telling the truth. Anyone who watched his performance in the debates knows Romney has no problem talking over people or downright silencing them to make his point. And what if she was harassing him with her perspective (oh god, poor Mitt, someone is badgering him with an opinion)? He's running for President. He needs to keep a lid on his ego, period.

Agreed -- there is a Dr. Jekyll-Romney we see when he knows the cameras are rolling, but there's a more sinister Mr. Hyde-Romney we find out about when he doesn't realize there are any cameras (the "47%" Romney), or he thinks no one in his audience (like this woman) will remember every arrogant and patronizing word he says.
are you sure you replied to right person? your reply doesn't really match up to the person above you lol (--')

Having no respect for teachers is like saying, you are not willing to be educated. Teachers exist in many forms throughout your life, btw, Your mom and dad were teachers. I guess you are just a complacent with your existence and don't aspire to much. ROFL

I have so much respect for teachers. and so little for politicians. How dare he say "I didn't ask you a question. What an arrogant person he is.

When she said that Mitt Romney told her, "I didn't ask you a question." I believe her! That's just how he bulldozed Candy Crowley and Obama last night. I viewed this video before the debate, and now her statements ring so true. 
Captain Romney will take your opinion under advisement...when this ship becomes a democracy!
s shown a desire to reach consensus in solving the complex problems of our time. They resort to ridiculously simplistic arguments that are made of code words and falsehoods. If Mr. Romney doesn't know how to listen to the concerns of an average American, and in fact refuses to listen, how will he ever be an effective executive in the political arena of Washington or a persuasive diplomat on the world stage?
Did i ask you a question?
To be honest, i tried to give Mitt Romney a chance, I really tried, but nope he allows his partner (Ryan Paul or something like) to make plans to cut scholarship funding (Pell Grant for those wondering), then insults me in his 47% percent comment (I'm a student at a college and don't pay Federal income), and then you see stuff like this and wonder, how could anyone vote for such a monster. I hope he gets destroyed in the next polls because I am not voting for him.
