Boehner on Ann Romney’s speech: ‘I was a mess’

Last week, Mitt Romney told reporters that political candidates aren't supposed to be emotional. "I'm emotional. I don't show it quite as clearly as John Boehner, but I'm an emotional person," he told Parade. "There is a, I don't know, a societal norm that if you're running for office, you can't be emotional, and perhaps I bow to that too often."

House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), famous for his tendency to tear up, says he just can't do the whole no emotions thing.

“I don’t. I just don't," he told Fox News Wednesday. "You should have seen me last night watching Ann Romney give the speech. I was a mess.”
