the last book I ever read (Romney: A Reckoning by McKay Coppins, excerpt nine)

from Romney: A Reckoning by McKay Coppins:

Voters regularly demanded that he commit to balancing the federal budget in his first year as president. When he tried to explain that cutting trillions of dollars in a single year would drive the country into depression, they booed.

At an event in New Hampshire, a man confronted him with an accusatory question. “Are you going to compromise?” the voter asked. “I don’t want to vote for anybody who’s going to compromise.” Romney, unable to restrain himself, replied, “Are you married, sir?”
