Here's a video from 2007 that, for me, says it all about Romney.

He comes across as callous, calculating, indifferent to anyone whom he disagrees with and, for that matter, screws with his narrative (whatever that may be at any given moment).

Lets put aside the issue of whether he agrees or disagrees with this gentleman. The fact is he has absolutely no interest in discussion. None. The concerns of a regular citizen are anathema to him if that person does not fall in line with what he considers reasonable subject matter.

Now...how would Bill Clinton or Barack Obama respond? I'd bet the farm that they'd engage this man for a little bit no matter what their position on the issue is. With Clinton, it's because he actually likes meeting and talking to people. Romney, obviously, has no use for those who cannot help him. This man may as well be a maggot.

Romney is a coward and completely unfit for the Presidency. It's just pathetic that anyone would find value in him as a candidate.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    "I'm not for medical marijuana." The unspoken message was/is, "what I say counts; nothing else."

    Willard perceives himself to be an arbitrator of other people's behavior.
    If he were at least honest, he would explain that the legislature makes the laws and the obligation of the governor is to carry them out, to the best of his ability and the resources available.

    That our legislative bodies are made up of people whose main interest seems to be subjugating individual behavior to as many strictures as possible, instead of managing our natural and man-made resources, is a problem we need to address. Perhaps the opportunity to un-select them every two years has created the impression that these people are not very important.  But, in fact, they are key to government by the people.  Legislators are the levers by which the people govern.  Of course, if we prefer to let the levers be the deciders, then, like an automatic transmission, they won't be as responsive as a standard.

    Willard's forte = "catch 'n' cage". He's not into "catch and release."

    Whenever I think of Willard M. Romney, this is my lasting impression him.

    It has been etched in my memory primarily because of his callous demeanor to another human being.
    This says more about this man than darn near anything else.

    President? For the sake of humaity let's hope not.
