    When I was a kid, I had a good friend who seemed completely normal, except that he would lie about things that were easily disproved, and often didn't even matter. Everyone knew when he was lying, and we just let it go.

    "The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have too much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little… I see one-third of a nation ill-housed, ill-clothed, ill-nourished." -Franklin Roosevelt

    •  Exactly, Mitt chooses his words carefully (0+ / 0-)

      Mitt has thought this out, and is trying to get around a problem the best he can.

      Like you say, pathological liars don't even think about the lies they're telling.  The Psychopath I know, is constantly reading you while he's talking.  If he thinks you're not buying his lie, he'll change coarse in mid sentence and start with a new lie that may even contradict the lie in the beginning of the sentence.  And he is soooooo good at it, he literally has a cult (every single one a Tea Bagger) that believes every word he says,  the contradictions they simply ignore, and believe the latest story.
