If fairness, this is pretty much the most honest and human reaction he has let loose. It encapsulates very much his ethos succinctly and adroitly.

He doesn't care what happens to folks. Period. Unless they have stuff for him. Plain and simple.

Mitt might be a pompous bloviator, but I do have to admit that he is a soulless, heartless amoral douchebag who only cares about the fattening of the wallets of himself and his masters. He's going to cut his expenditures, keep the money and either buy a small island nation or become the next Republican kingmaker, assuming the GOP sticks around after his defeat of Landonesque porportions.

kid_icarus: There's some thinly-veiled contempt.


Romney is very contemptable. A disgusting excuse for a human being. Pathetic.

soup sandwich: Nadie_AZ: "I looked him in the eye as we were leaving," recalls Goodridge. "And I said, 'Governor Romney, tell me - what would you suggest I say to my 8 year-old daughter about why her mommy and her ma can't get married because you, the governor of her state, are going to block our marriage?'"

His response, according to Goodridge: "I don't really care what you tell your adopted daughter. Why don't you just tell her the same thing you've been telling her the last eight years."

Romney's retort enraged a speechless Goodridge; he didn't care, and by referring to her biological daughter as "adopted," it was clear he hadn't even been listening. By the time she was back in the hallway, she was reduced to tears.

"I really kind of lost it," says Goodridge. "I've never stood before someone who had no capacity for empathy. It went behind flat affect. It was a complete lack of ability or motivation to understand other people."

While Goodridge cried, Romney brought the press into his office to give his take on the meeting.

He described it as, "Pleasant."

I've never thought of Romney as a wimp. I've though of him as a bully in power and an ass kisser out of power.
poor baby. realtalk is real?


WTF are you talking about? He IS a dick and this article proves it.

Well then. This article just took my feelings about Romney from mild loathing to outright hatred. I wasn't really planning to donate to anyone this election season, but I think I'll go write a check to Obama now.

This is reminiscent of his response to the cancer patient who confronted him about medical marijuana and whether Romney thought he should be arrested.

The thing is it shows he really does have radical right wing beliefs. He had actual feelings about that and they weren't good feelings.

Meh, I still think he's got zero feelings, and this was just his sociopathy shining through like a dead fish in raw sewage.

namegoeshere: I wonder if this guy really is the sociopath that he appears to be.

He is not capable of empathy.



you'd be surprised at the number of sociopaths/psyhopaths in wall street, government, and corporate board rooms across america. most people think that they're violent and easily spotted, but most socio/pychos can live fairly normal lives in society. its when you get to know them that you realise how mentally ill they really are.

they do not have the ability to empathise nor do they have the same connections to other people than normal people have. they view the world very differently and the only thing they can focus on is themselves.

i've known a few and it can be scary when you see the empty shell that you once thought contained a human being. they truly are like robots.

i stay away from them once i find out what they are. they are capable of changing so its pointless to have any type of relationship with them.

there are alot more of them around than you realize.

i used to think that the street had more psychos than anywhere else, but my experience has been that the higher up the ladder you look, the more psychos you find. almost like they are attracted to power/control/money more so than the rest of the population.

The psychos on the streets and in the jails are low-functioning sociopaths. The ones in positions of power and in households worldwide exact their abuse on their victims and have learned early on just how much they can get away with.

This, x eleventy.

I got screwed over twice by genuine psychopaths which is part of the reason I hate people so vehemently today; what scares me on both a personal and professional level is how easy it is for psychopaths to function in society--a society which often embraces the exact traits that psychopathy embodies. Selfishness, lack of empathy, short-term gratification over long-term plans, superficiality...these are all things the American culture seems to value. The whole ethos of "I got mine, f*ck you" is one very small step from the sociopathic "I'll f*ck you to get mine," imo.

our culture rewards greed, self centeredness, aggressive go getters. but not everyone is that simple minded and/or brainwashed. the best thing, i've found, is to not rush to get to know people. don't be too friendly. and don't trust someone who seems unusually friendly. sit back and observe others when they don't know you're observing them. the pyschopaths and sociopaths always give themselves away if you know what to look for. the best friends i've ever had where when neither of us were eager to get to know each other. that shows that neither has an agenda on the other. it just kinda' happened over time. once a psycho/sociopath has been identified, stay away from it and don't give it any info or thoughts about you to feed off of. that's worked best for me. most people are decent, but you have to be on guard these days.

the less the psycho/socio knows about you, the better off you are. and the less emotion you show them the better off you are because some of them are very smart and can read body language/emotions. when all else fails, pop a cap in their ass. lol

i guess this means we live in the 'greatest country on earth'. ((::

ironically, i ID'd a woman pychopath/sociopath about a year ago. wanna' know the first clue i got from her that she was one? the sound of her voice. it had a kinda' schrill, fake, artificial sound to it. it sounded a little mechanical. i noticed it right away, but gave her the benefit of the doubt and waited for more clues before i labled her. suffice it to say that she did not become a problem for me (she did for others) because i ID'd her sooner rather than later. the others had to learn the hard way.

That's something I wonder as well.

What's really confusing is he implemented RomneyCare while governor of Massachusetts.

Why would a sociopath do that? I'm not saying a sociopath wouldn't do that, but that said sociopath would need a motive for doing it that does not involve empathy.

Tragically, he could actually win. It's looking more and more unlikely that he will, but still he could.

Bush Jr. actually underperformed for an incumbent, especially during wartime.
