"It was like talking to a robot."

"A new account detailing Mitt Romney's interactions with same-sex couples was published Tuesday, alleging that the former governor had an uncomfortable meeting with several of the plaintiffs in Goodridge v. Dept of Public Health, the landmark case that legalized same-sex marriage in Massachusetts." (2004)

“It was like talking to a robot. No expression, no feeling,” recalls David Wilson, one of the plaintiffs in the case who met with Romney that day. “People were sharing touching stories, stories where you’d expect recognition in the other person’s face that they at least hear what you’re saying — that there’s empathy. He didn’t even shake his head. He was completely blank.”

Occasionally Romney would say something.

“I didn’t know you had families,” remarked Romney to the group, according to Wilson. The offhanded remark underscored that Romney, the governor of the first state prepared to grant same-sex marriage, hadn’t taken the time to look at what the landmark case was really about."

THIS GUY IS ONE SICK DUDE...

2. Even Palin showed more human characteristics than Mitt Twitt.

He comes across as a true Stepford man.

5. I agree

So many republican politicians seem to share sociopathic qualities-- Gingrich, Ryan, Cheney, Wolfowitz, Bush I, ( I don't really think Shrub was one-- just a dumb child who never grew up), Nixon (WOW!), Reagan. ?,,Rush, Beck, Ingraham, It just goes on and on....

4. He only cares about "regular" people if they are Mormon people

Otherwise, you better be loaded. Those touching (GAG) stories about sitting at some kids bedside as he died and helping families with financial trouble? All Mormons.
