West Wing actor Richard Schiff on Thursday night said Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney had the demeanor of a “car salesman.”
“It’s so easy to pick a lie and stick to it,” he told Current TV host Cenk Uygur. “It’s much harder, if you have any semblance of wanting to tell the truth, to be able to look that in the eye and deal with it, because it makes your jaw drop.”
“I think the president was taken off guard by the audacity of the lies, the repeated make-believe that Romney was throwing at him. It stuns you when it happens to you,” added.
President Barack Obama’s performance during the first presidential debate on Wednesday night was quickly panned by pundits, who noted that Romney appeared to be much more focused and aggressive.
