What is your most basic, visceral gut feeling about Mitt Romney?

What emotion does he provoke in you? I'm curious, since I realized today that I had a different emotional response to each of the three main Republican primary candidates.

Newt Gingrich inspired hatred--every time the man spoke it made me want to kick him in the balls for being such a lying bastard. Rick Santorum disturbed me, mostly in that somebody that crazy could actually get people to vote for him.

But my most basic reaction to Mitt Romney is basically contempt. He knows nothing, stands for nothing, and thinks he's suited to the hardest job on the planet even though he hasn't the first clue about the real world.

What about the rest of you?

Hate's toxic; it'll eat you up if you work up to hatred for every politician in the world whose views you happen to disagree with. It sounds like revelling in one's own intolerance. Practicing such reflexive intolerance not only makes you less happy as a human being, it also makes you a less effective citizen-activist.

I don't hate his policies because I don't know what they are (does he?), but something weird has happened to me on a gut level and yet I don't hate him. I think they call it oogie, but I don't know how to spell it.

Maybe its the hair oil. He needs to get rid of it.

He's not repulsive like Gingrich or icky like O'Connel or smarmy like Bachmann. If you turn the sound off on them, they still project negative personas. If you turn the sound off on Romney, you have to count the gray hairs just to see whether he's being moderate or conservative

Seeing him is like gazing into a bowl of vanilla pudding with some coconut sprinkles mixed in. I don't like it, I don't hate it. I don't give a damn either way. Now Bush Junior, on the other hand, made my bowels clench up tight and left me feeling disgusted and nauseous every time I saw him, so I don't know why Romney evokes such complete apathy in me.

both for his obvious belief that he is superior and entitled, but most definitely because I'd never trust him for a moment. (and I REALLY resent that he makes me agree with FREEPERS in that respect)


Newt: Nasty, nasty piece of work: I've despised him since he once represented the Atlanta area district in which I once lived.

Santorum; stupid, gullible, but dangerous. Yes, to think anyone would be swayed by this man, scares me a great deal

Not so much for EPA and other 'regulators'.

Probably anatomically similar anyway.

Whenever my sisters would play w/their Barbies, Ken never had anything of substance to say. Once in awhile he would show up to declare something like, "I'm hungry. What's for dinner?" The Barbies otoh, had elaborate roles with plots and subplots. Ken seemed to spend most of his time at some unknown place of work, or forgotten under a huge pile of Barbie wardrobe changes.

76. He looks terribly insecure

He tries WAY too hard to be "one of the guys", when he knows he's out of touch with the people whose hands he shakes on the campaign trail, and those are GOP'ers who are themselves out of touch.

Just about all of his gaffes come from that insecurity. It's troubling to think of a person with that kind of hidden inferiority complex would do with the power of the Presidency.

It would be funny if it weren't real.

83. Romney has no moral core.

He has lived a life where he used his born advantages to sacrifice the less fortunate. Romney chose to make maximum profit for himself and a select few when he could have instead chosen to truly build companies that built in america and hired americans. Yet Romney outsourced jobs to massively enrich himself. Romney failed the true test of character, doing what is right when one can chose not to.

Same, exact plan for the country and economy. Same daddy's boy who had his whole life handed to him, but, like Bush, thinks of himself as "successful."

85. He's a crook

Many years ago, Hunter Thompson published an "apology" to Richard Nixon in which he said that, so far as he knew, Richard Nixon didn't fuck pigs or sell used cars with cracked blocks, nor was he corrupt beyond the ability of modern man to describe it.

Romney, on the other hand, probably is that bad. This is a man who is believed to owe over $3 million this year in federal income tax on passive income. Which means, if he wasn't tied up in all sorts of tax shelters, he probably really owes $6 million.

They sell a product at Home Depot. It is a green gelatinous mass made to seal lawn tractor tires so the air doesn't run out of them when you hit rocks. When I worked there it was called Slime. It is now called Romney.

91. He gives me the creeps more than about any of them.

Out of touch as McShame, smarmy as Cantor, dumb as Palin, gives less of a fuck than Dubya, greedier than Ryan, dishonest as Atwater, snobby as Poppy but more phony than any of them and by a lot with no integrity even within his own shitty context.

He has to be the least trustworthy piece of shit ever shat.

I can't believe he doesn't give more the willies something awful.

I want no golem running anything. Nothing "safe" about a puppet with a compass on whatthefuckever combined with mo money, mo money mo as the prime directive, to my mind.

Plus, since he can at least put on an appearance of not being any particular flavor of fucking loon or obviously stupid as a rock (unless forced to freestyle too much or a lot of exposure), which allows even more time before the crowd gets we are getting fucked over and lied to.

He wants the office desperately. He's the physical embodiment of corporate personhood.

Obama will destroy him in the debates. That's one thing of which I'm certain. Romney will probably destroy himself everywhere else.

I know it's a mistake to write him off as a serious danger to our nation (and the world) but all I feel when I am reminded of his existence is "meh".

In my mind, he's "Meh" Romney.

108. Smarmy...like the guy who tries too hard to be cool

and will do and say anything to be cool. Throw in out of touch because he has something wrong with him that he just cannot read or learn social cues, and you have him.

I wonder about Aspergers? Lots of smart people have it, a mild case, they can't relate to others that well, or read social cues, or learn what not to say to others. The man has had over 6 years to prepare to run for President, and I am always astounded at the stupid, insensitive things he says!! Maybe his wifey-poo has a touch, also.

But what is even more revealing is the look Republicans get on their faces when they realize he's likely to be their candidate. They all get this vaguely pained, constipated look on their faces that suggests they don't enough fiber in their diets.
