  •  I don't think it's stupidity (5+ / 0-)

    as much as it's arrogance -- remember Leona Helmsley's famous quote, "We don't pay taxes. Only the little people pay taxes." From getting off scot-free when "playing pranks" as a prep school kid (even assaults like forcefully cutting someone's hair) to ducking out of Vietnam by going on Mormon mission to France (and protesting in favor of the war and draft before leaving) to his business dealings, Romney has been the stereotypical entitled rich kid, with no sense of the responsibility that comes with the rewards.

    •  He's really a ball-busting.... (1+ / 0-)

      Janet 707 asshole douchebag. What sense of humor he has is strictly of the corporate, good-old-boy, ball-busting type. Very old school, save for the fact that he's a teetotaler. In some ways, he strikes me as being an even bigger asshole than George W. Bush. Bush was a towel-snapping dickhead, too, but at least he had a goofy/dopey/self-deprecating streak that made him occasionally amusing.
