Romney has a really deranged look in his eyes. He is dripping with deep hatred. When I listened to one of his speeches the timber of it was a deep racist anger. And his audiences are really mean and sadistic and snarky as well. It is more of a sixth sense and intuition than anything else. When I watch him he really is an out of control sociopath. I really shudder to think that he might have the "football". I just get a real bad sense about the GOP and they don't seem to care who they kill off with their policies.
The way the GOP is acting they are out for blood in Iran. Even though it would be a disaster I would bet that they would attack. Another war would just smash this country and explode the deficit beyond repair.
I am really bothered by the increasing toxicity of the debate. And we are not into the main campaign yet. We can only hope they do something so stupid they destroy themselves. It is clear that we cannot possibly live with these people unless there is a real change.
When I look at all their policy proposals I do not know how the country could end up being a decent place with them in power.

2. Romney is definitely strung out...under EXTREME stress.
If you listen to anything he says now, and the cadence and timbre of his voice as MA governor, there is a distinct and noticeable difference. He sounds...FRANTIC now. You can hear the stress and distraction in his tone.
When he was running for MA Gov, he had the high ground, because MA is very slow to elect women, and Shannon O'Brien didn't get enough help and her campaign was fraught with organizational and motivational problems. He played to the Indie vote and promised everyone that he'd bring businesses to the shitty areas of the state that are stagnating. He didn't deliver, of course, but he played that card with great success and got the gig. He knew he could bullshit people once, and he did just that--if he'd run for reelection he might have had that frantic tone in his voice.
