    •  Yeah, he's the worst of both -- (6+ / 0-)

      the stupidity of W, and the sociopathy of Darth Cheney.

      Actually, Vader at the end had more humanity than Cheney.

      And W. all along realized he was a dufus. Romney is utterly clueless.

      just a douche-bag. He actually feels compassion for some people (ie, like his daughter), even if he doesn't give a damn about others.

      Does Mitt Romney even care about his family? Well, let's put it this way. As his daughter, who just had a baby less than a month earlier, was beating him in the annual family race... rather than being beat by a girl, he TRIPPED her to win.

      So, yeah, he can't even feel compassion for daughter in law.

      I completely agree that Cheney is smarter, though. Romney has proven that to be a filthy rich, you don't need to be a genius... or even smart (let's face it: Romney's a dumb-ass).

      You just need to be born into the country's uber elite, just smart enough to learn how to play a system that's rigged, and have a willingness to destroy lives in the process. None of Romney's business actions were particularly smart.

      He won whether the companies he bought succeeded or failed, by using rigged rules to privatize the rewards and socialize risks -- such that all the money that could be sucked out of the companies he bought went to Bain, and the employees paid for it, up to and including bankruptcy.

      There's no intelligence necessary to do any of that. Just being born into the right family and having the willingness to commit great acts of evil.
