I hear you. Im just surprised people haven't woken up yet, to the spectacle of crooked Politics, and Right/Left BS. I see him, and Obama as Polar Opposites, looking into a mirror, with Agendas to keep this Country weak. Ive learned from ATS, that around this time, those claiming neutrality, when it comes to left and right, show their true colors, in the end. Sorry if I ranted before, but Romneys personal life, is nothing, compared to the political lives of both of these men, who are running for President. Their characters were bought and paid for, or molded early to play parts, in a bigger picture. Just MHO.

So, after reading your post, your basis for not liking him is that Romney is a jerk. A certain pompousness that seems to have been taught or rather silver spoon fed to him from an early age. I did not know of all those examples, but it does seem to show a pattern of behavior. I don't think its that he's a jerk, but its more complicated. Documented sources talking about Mitt's bullying behavior at his private high school show a disturbing picture of someone who will resort to violence very quickly if someone offends him. A jerk, a bully, someone with no sympathy for the poor. How the GOP thought this person was a good candidate is beyond me.

The over emotional liberals in this thread sound worried about Mitt. Nit-picking details? Geez. Nothing anything else hasn't done.
Can't you guys just accept the fact that you guys are afraid of change, and don't want to move "Forward?"
The economy is a far greater issue than if he burped at a picnic table. Seriously.

I, for one, can't wait for the debates on Oct 3rd.
We'll see who bumbles there!

Can the next President face an unwinnable economic enigma and find any solution at all? In the end, that is the only question which matters, on any level. If THAT one can't be answered...and answered well, nothing else matters for the wasteland which failure there creates, IMO.edit on 29-9-2012 by Wrabbit2000 because: (no reason given)
The lack of demonstrated empathy is possibly the most dysfunctional aspect of Asperger syndrome. Individuals with AS experience difficulties in basic elements of social interaction, which may include a failure to develop friendships or to seek shared enjoyments or achievements with others (for example, showing others objects of interest), a lack of social or emotional reciprocity, and impaired nonverbal behaviors in areas such as eye contact, facial expression, posture, and gesture.
People with AS may not be as withdrawn around others as those with other, more debilitating, forms of autism; they approach others, even if awkwardly. For example, a person with AS may engage in a one-sided, long-winded speech about a favorite topic, while misunderstanding or not recognizing the listener's feelings or reactions, such as a need for privacy or haste to leave. This social awkwardness has been called "active but odd". This failure to react appropriately to social interaction may appear as disregard for other people's feelings, and may come across as insensitive. However, not all individuals with AS will approach others. Some of them may even display selective mutism, speaking not at all to most people and excessively to specific people. Some may choose to talk only to people they like.
