  •  It is not normal that a family can talk (6+ / 0-)

    about a candidate for President this way and get away with it.

    A candidate even tears up in an emotional moment and it's big news.

    Romney dumping on his wife, his tenseness...his need to rant...not necessarily insane but not the healthiest

    certainly would normally be questioned by the media but they are numbed out by wanting Obama to win (being informed and rational) so are afraid that calling Romney out will show their internal bias
    so they bend over backwards

    I can't imagine why else they wouldn't say anything We can imagine how ELECTRIC it would be if we'd learned of this when Obama or even another Dem was a candidate

    why does ROmney always get such a free pass in life?!

      Does anybody recall how Tom Eagleton was hounded out of the 1972 race because of his history of psychiatric treatement? Does anyone remember when Nixon's boys broke into Daniel Ellsberg's psychiatrist's office to try and get dope on him, to smear him with?

      Mitt Romney is so lacking in self-awareness, I doubt he would ever seek help with his anger and control issues.

      Although it's ugly, I feel like anything is fair game when you're up against the likes of Karl Rove. Not calling Mitt mentally ill, but he's definitely not quite right.

      •  Yeah, that's a red flag. (0+ / 0-)
        •  Please don't be so judgemental (0+ / 0-)

          It is not a red flag.
          that's a slap in the face

          why not read what I meant or ask a question before doing that on this supposedly accepting site.

          I am working hard for Obama to win and hate Romney's guts. He was my Governor.

          why not read my explanation to the above poster who had the decency of asking before judging.

      •  yes (0+ / 0-)

        not a big point but in the moment I was feeling Why the heck does the media not call Romney out on stuff.

        My feeling is that the media reporting over all has a slightly RIGHT bias

        I believe it is because the average reporter is a moderate and also more informed than the average American. ANyone who is well informed and moderate should want Obama to win, especially if they care about our country.

        Well informed person can see that Romney is a horrific liar not suited to be President

        So, I think inside them very generally they want Obama to win. Yet why would they be so easy on Romney?

        My guess was that they were afraid for their "bias" to show.

        I think that the media in general (even before the election) especially reporters are so afraid of being called as "having a liberal bias" that they've been soft on Republicans and harder on Democrats

      •  fine to disagree with my feelings or (0+ / 0-)

        rationale
        doesn't mean I'm a troll or want Romney to win

        I think it is reasonable to assume that if you average it the politics of the average MSM journalist would be moderate and not more to the right than that.

        It is my view, again, that a very well informed moderate who is not biased (as journalists strive to be) should not want Romney to win. Romney has show himself to those who are not biased and are informed as a shifty liar whose behavior is beyond the norm for prospective Presidents, period. So I think that many MSM journalists may personall prefer that Obama wins.

        Yet they feel that preference if they have it should not bleed into their reporting, and may overcompensate.

        IT is just a therory and not my main point, anyway.
