A story in The New York Times cited examples from New Hampshire to illustrate Mitt Romney's occasionally awkward exchanges when greeting voters in an informal setting.

Sometimes, the Times said, Romney turned away from questions he disliked. Sometimes he left people wondering what he meant. And still other times, he tried to guess voters' nationalities or personal relationships.

At a diner in Tilton last week, Romney assumed that a woman sitting near a man was his daughter.

Janelle Batchelder, 31, 'turned a shade of red,' the Times reported.

'Wife,' Batchelder said.
