Campaign staff and volunteers trying to physically prevent reporters from approaching the rope line to ask questions of Romney.

Joe Klein is miffed:
Mitt Romney is clearly a candidate terrified by his own mouth. What other explanation for his campaign’s extreme efforts to prevent reporters from asking him questions? … I don’t know how to improve this situation, but I suspect that reporters shouting questions at Romney when he’s trying to shake hands with citizens on a rope-line isn’t helping any. You do have to wonder, though, how much skill and confidence Romney will bring to meetings with foreign and Congressional leaders if he can’t figure out how to talk to the press.
Naturally, Jonah Goldberg wants Romney to "get very angry" at the MSM.
