He's less a robot and more a sociopath.

He is not a robot. He is an android.

They took the Washington Post profile out of context. They claim that it's an example of "intolerance then, intolerance now" but the article makes a pretty good case that he became much more tolerant and liberal during his tenure as the head of Belmont/Boston stake.

The fact that he's back to the far right on women's rights, homosexuality and abortion is more of a significant flip-flop than trying to say that he's still the same guy he was when he was in his 30s.

Mitt has shown he will do whatever he needs to be to gain and then retain power.

If that means being a Republican governor that signs an assault weapons ban and a universal healthcare plan, so be it.

If that means buying profitable plants, closing the doors, and shipping that production to China so it can be even more profitable, so be it.

If that means bullying a teenager at the Olympics, holding down a classmate in high school while someone shaves his head, or impersonating a police officer while in college, so be it.

Mitt seems to want power for power's sake, and that scares me.

The personal is political. Romney thumbing his nose at his neighbors at a vacation home in La Jolla, Calif. shows that Romney does what he wants and doesn't really care about the impact on others near him. There's no other way to interpret it, according to this New York Times report, that recounts how after Romney bought his beach house he offended his neighbors by seeking to quadruple its size.

Oh come on. I'm no fan of Mittens, but this just sounds desperate. "He's a bad person because he applied for a building permit that his fellow wealthy neighbors didn't like!"

Anyone that's had any dealings with a zoning board or an HOA or a condo association knows that there's no shortage of people who think it's their prerogative to control how every other person uses his property.

Yes but is he Three Laws Safe?

Meh. We don't need no stinkin' article to tell us this.

Back in the days of yore, when the Republican primary looked like a freak show, the Powers That Be (PTB) knew all about Romney's tax issues and knew there's no way he'd ever get elected if they ever become public. They tried to short circuit his campaign but the masses wouldn't have it. The PTB realized months ago that this year is just an exercise.

I think we can definitively say that holding down some kid while someone else shaves his head violates the First Law.

You call it robotic, I call it being a savvy politician. Every move he makes is calculated. At least it's better than John "Name Drop my way to the Presidency" McCain. Though I'm sure if Romney were more off the cuff, Farkers would be lambasting the man for his constant gaffes, a la the treatment of Rick Santorum.

Another report from that period in Vanity Fair notes how Romney told a Mormon single mother who became pregnant to put her child up for adoption-which she refused. When she faced serious medical issues, he refused to come to her hospital bedside.

That's not how it is supposed to work. The Mormon church might be a lot of things that people don't like, but they are supposed to be about community, even when they don't personally agree with the member in trouble. As long as this woman hadn't been excommunicated, she should have ranked some face time, it's something most people in the church would expect.

He is pushing a grocery cart (for his first time) into a stretch SUV limo to appear to be more like the common man.

It's going to be hilarious when he loses this election. I expect him to blow a gasket. He'll throw out the "n-word" on national TV, is my guess.

The guy is a piece-of-shiat.

The Three Laws of Bain Androids:

1. A Bain Android may not allow a helpless company to remain solvent or, through inaction, allow another vulture venture capitalist company to garner profits from helpless company.

2. See Law #1.

3. See Law #2.

the man behind the smile isn't just a political flip-flopper who can't be trusted, but a self-serving man who is often tone-deaf to his impact on others and whose internal compass seems to spin wildly.

Another great description of Mittens.

He has no concept that there are other people in the world besides him.

Completely lacking in empathy. People like that are scary.

So is he a sociopath or a solipsist? I guess you can be both.

Not even empathy. It's a complete inability to relate to others as human beings. Like that story (which may only be a story) about how he offered his undrunk hot chocolates to the baristas. With zero concept that that might be disgusting or offensive to the "help." He really comes across like a very very wealthy person who has never had contact with anyone below his station. Prince Philip of England is kind of like that. But he's married to the Queen so nobody really expects him to be different.

I did not know you knew the man personally. It's a wonder you can stand to be around him. Please tell us more. Does he have a piss-boy to follow him around for when he needs to relieve himself? Does he do that thing where instead of using a hankerchief, he holds one side of his nose closed and shoots a booger out the other side onto the ground?

Because that's disgusting. I won't vote for a man who does that.

Never you mind dear. Your failure to respond to me yesterday about Bain Capital tells me exactly what I need to know about you, so my only answer today is:

When you blow Romney, do you spit or swallow?
