    It has been obvious throughout his campaign, that Cranbrook School in Bloomfield Hills didn't successfully instill any of the social graces like tact, class, grace or taste, if, in fact, they even tried in his case.  Mitt is a boor of the first degree when it comes to behavior appropriate to a given situation.  He is also proof that you can't buy class.  Sad testimonial also on George and Lenore's parenting.  I always like them when George was governor, but I knew a long time ago that Mitt did, indeed, fall far from the tree.

      not only morally but cognitively. I don't think it's fair to blame the parents in this case.
      However if Mitt's kids are liars I totally blame him.

      The founding fathers knew of the mutually corrupting influences of Church and state, wisely sending them to opposite corners.

      Some kids are wired so they just don't learn certain things, and it's not always that the parents didn't try teaching them.

      Just look at the number of openly (proudly) gay people who grew up in rabidly right-wing evangelical families.
