    •  Once a bully always a bully (9+ / 0-)

      I hate bullies.  I was bullied as a kid and I know their mindset.   They are sociopath cowards and that is something you don't get over.  

      His demonstrating in favor of the Vietnam war while avoiding the draft is another data point.  His taking shady money to start Bain and using it to buy companies and squeeze their cash costing thousands their jobs is yet another.  His thinking that you can get elected without showing your tax returns in spite of your millions overseas is also part of the same bully mentality;

      It is often suggested that bullying behavior has its origin in childhood. As a child who is inclined to act as a bully ages, his or her related behavior patterns may also become more sophisticated. Schoolyard pranks and "rough-housing" may develop into more subtle activities such as administrative end-runs, planned and orchestrated attempts at character assassination, or other less obvious, yet equally forceful forms of coercion.

      Research indicates that adults who bully have authoritarian personalities, combined with a strong need to control or dominate.[35] It has also been suggested that a prejudicial view of subordinates can be a particularly strong risk factor.[36]
