Did Mitt Romney Give Christie a Death Stare During His Keynote Speech?

Hmmmm.

Mitt Romney appeared unusually distressed during Chris Christie's keynote address at the Republican National Convention Tuesday night. "Romney doesn't look particularly thrilled with this speech," Reuters columnist Anthony De Rosa wrote on Twitter. A more joyful Heidi Moore of Marketplace said, "The shooting-daggers-at-Christie look on Mitt Romney's face right now is AMAZING."

Christie sang Romney's praises (and also his own, quite a bit), bringing supporters to their feet while Romney looked like he desperately had to run to the bathroom. "Gov. Christie did exactly what we asked, which was lay out the problems facing the nation and close with Governor Romney as the solution," a Romney senior adviser told Politico. Sure didn't look that way. So what was up with Mitt during Christie's oration? Speech envy, regret, typical Romney expression, death stare, something else?
