139. Yes indeed, and shades of these two serial killers. Kenneth Bianchi and Angelo Buono.

 

I call Romney's behavior strange, delusional and dangerous.

Bianchi and Buono would usually cruise around Los Angeles in Buono's car and use fake badges to persuade girls that they were undercover cops. Their victims were women and girls aged 12 to 28 from various walks of life. They would then order the girls into Buono's "unmarked police car" and drive them home to torture and murder them.

Bianchi was deeply troubled from a young age, and his adoptive mother described him as being "a compulsive liar who had risen from the cradle dissembling". He often worried her with his penchant for trance-like daydreams.

171. Sounds to me like he was just lying about it.

Romney reminds me of a person who wants to impress with making stuff up. I doubt he had the courage to impersonate an officer. He just had the uniform and bragged about doing some fantasy he had. Just like the guy, who claims he has laid all the cheerleaders, just because he dated one and got turned down on the sex.
You know the type, bragging about stuff they never would ever do. And you know they are lying about it.

36. He sure has a pattern of behavior

He put his nice dog on top of the car and seemed not to care that the dog was a bit uncomfortable.

Bullied the nice kid at Cranbrook and then his memory went south when the issue cane out.

I was an Educator for many years, he is a classic case of the students that were sent to my office. Their rich mother's usually came to get them out of trouble. No matter what , they protected their little darling. Never seemed to have a clue /care that their little darling had a personality disorder.

Romney is a classic case.



"To some observers, Romney’s alleged masquerading as a cop to intimidate innocent drivers shows a character defect that is also revealed by other bullying incidents during his youth."

He really was a spoiled child and remains one.
Knowing that his personality disorder is still in place, why would they nominate this clown for President -- Why? Because they know he will stop at nothing to Lie, Cheat, Steal, Bully to get his way.

78. Mitt strapped the family dog to the roof of their automobile during a trip

Mitt Romney Heckled Over Dog-On-Roof Story

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney can't even grab some pizzas without being reminded of how he treated his dog nearly 30 years ago.

As Romney exited Joe's Pizza carrying a stack of pizza boxes in New York City on Tuesday, somebody on the sidewalk shouted, "Just don't put 'em on the roof of the car," according to a tweet from Reuters reporter Sam Youngman.

In 1983, the Romneys embarked on a 12-hour drive from Massachusetts to Canada. Since there wasn't enough room in the car for the family dog, Seamus, Romney put the Irish Setter in a crate fastened to the roof of the car. Though Romney has said Seamus loved roof rides, during this particular trip the dog suffered a bout of diarrhea that forced Romney to pull over and hose off the car.

Dog lovers have protested Romney over "Crate-Gate" ever since the Boston Globe first reported it in 2007. Romney said last month that he wouldn't do it again because of all the attention it received.

who put Seamus's cage on top of the car himself. Obama was in Indonesia where his grandmother served dog meat (as well as grasshopper, snake, etc.) when he was between the ages of 6 - 10. There is NO comparison.

Oh, and by the way, this salacious story "came out" in Obama's book "Dreams of my Father" a few years ago.

11. I can imagine a college freshman thinking this was a hoot

So I won't read any evil intent into it. I do think, however, that it's evidence of his feeling entitled. I can't imagine feeling as if it would ever be okay for me to impersonate an officer, however young and stupid I was, but he obviously knew he'd be able to get away with it, because of his father or just his wealth in general, if he were ever caught.

32. I think that dressing up like a cop might be a prank to a college kid,

but pranks like that are done when you are with a group of friends. But going out on your own, and using the uniform to pull drivers over is just plain creepy. There is something seriously wrong with that man. While in college, he also attacked a younger student and cut off some of his hair. And don't forget the poor dog that he put in a box that was strapped to the roof of his car and drove for god knows how many hours, stopping only to hose the poor thing down when it pooped all over the place.
To quote from my favorite Beatles song, "Very Strange".

He wasn't just showing off with his friends--he was on a power trip for his own enjoyment. That is creepy. Now that you've brought this facet of his behavior up, I'm imagining him at home alone, making the conscious decision to dress up to go out on his own to scare drivers... it's creepy as hell. The boy ain't right.

59. or he was lying to his friends to impress them.

he had the uniform but just said he used it to harass others.
he seems to think that a show or power will increase the respect others have for him. as a teenager, he used the "prankster" persona to gain acceptance with non-mormon kids (the hair cutting incident) and he views firing people as a joke as an adult.
he has some real issues when it comes to how one ought to treat others.
and he has an abusive personality.

At first I thought this story would probably blow over, but I wonder whether the ick factor will give it the same endurance as the Seamus story. I think parents of both parties would be squicked out by the idea of somebody impersonating an officer in order to pull their daughters over. The only people who could find it even a little bit funny would be young men (and certainly not all young men); young women and women of all ages are so sick of having to be on alert all the time against predators, even if they turn out to be practical jokers.

All George did was get drunk, do coke, drive intoxicated, skip out on National Guard duty, chickenhawk out of Vietnam duty, and dance naked on a bar in his salad days!

Mitt RMoney beats up a gay kid and chops off his hair, shaves the heads of his college adversaries (fixation on hair--frustrated Vidal Sassoon?), teases another gay male student with taunts of "Atta girl!," managed to get into a car wreck with a drunken because his car was overloaded with passengers in France and killed his boss's wife....AND he impersonates a state cop on more than one occasion, to boot?

And all this before he tortures a dog on a twelve hour hellride from MA to Canada! Mittsy's a busy boy! A sick, mean, nasty busy boy! The asshole!

156. In France--a head-on with a drunken priest. RMoney's car was overloaded.

The boss was so broken up that he left the mission, and RMoney "moved up" as a consequence. That's one way of getting a promotion, I suppose.

The little hypocrite also supported THE DRAFT while enjoying a "religious deferment." Despicable fucker!

Details: http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2012/01/14/mitt-romney-s-life-as-a-missionary-nearly-killed-in-a-car-accident.html

The story begins during the U.S. war in Vietnam, when the 19-year-old Romney—who had protested during his year at Stanford in favor of the draft—got a deferment to travel to France in 1966 to seek religious converts to Mormonism. Romney spent much of his time trying to get a population of largely secular Catholics in Bordeaux, Le Havre, and Paris to believe that God chose Joseph Smith to found the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Even then, he wasn’t very successful in convincing people about his deeply held personal beliefs -- he won only two converts in over two years -- a problem that still haunts him in the presidential race today.

And even then, he displayed the wholesome—some might say goofy—sense of humor, organizational skills, and work ethic that help to explain why Romney was designated an assistant to the American leader of the Mormon mission in France. And that is how, at the age of 21, he ended up behind the steering wheel of a stylish low-riding Citroën DS with the mission leader, his wife, and three others crammed into a car made for five people on a winding road in southwestern France. Another car, driven by a speeding priest, who by most accounts seemed drunk, struck Romney’s car head-on.

Police who arrived on the scene initially assumed that Romney was dead. A photo of him in the hospital later shows him with a cast on his arm and a black eye.) Tragically, the wife of the mission leader did die, and her injured husband departed France almost immediately. Romney, who had been transferred to Paris by then, was temporarily tasked with co-administrating to the needs of 200 missionaries in France until the Mormon hierarchy managed to send a new elder to take the leader’s place.

He received FOUR deferments when he was
draft eligible. He was against the war..then.. Now, running for President, he says he wished he could have served, He and daddy did all they could so he wouldn't have to serve. Again, it's the lies that are the most troublesome.

Then and now. The old flip flop. His daddy was Governor of Michigan at the time. Rachel is right on this one.

51. Personality Traits

The guy seems to have this top of the world, narcissistic, sense of entitlement. He can do or say anything,
and the rules don't apply to him, he's not even accountable for his own words or actions, he can change
what he said previously or what policy he had, and everyone should accept it.

I'd call it arrogance, narcissism, just a hint of sociopath, perhaps even histrionic.

I don't think he worries about much because he believes he can get away with anything.

A real recipe for deviousness, for lying to people and then doing as he jolly well pleases.

Spoiled brat. If I saw these traits in a woman I would not want to date her.

Swing voters are going to ignore the noise unless something substantial comes up... like if an arrest record for impersonating an officer turns up. Lacking that, theyll ignore the story as an unsubstantiated rumor. So the story will have no effect on the election... but go ahead and knock yourself out wasting your time.

For example remember the story people focused to much on about Palin and her youngest child? That story came back and nearly bit us on the butt because it was fluff and served as a distraction and it could have cost us the election.
Same for the story over the Bush papers that took down Dan Rather though in that case they played their hand better and it helped win Bush the election.
As for watching Rmoneys back comment thats uncalled for kestrel as I wouldnt vote for the sorry sob as he did a horrible job as governor not to mention what he did to so many innocent people when he worked for Bain nor would I vote for any republican for any office right now as I find their policies distasteful.

152. Your post is still there, ya know.

try not to focus to much on these type of fluff pieces as they tend to be distractions from bigger issues which we should focus on over Mitt

This is followed later by
You want to focus on something then focus on his job as Governor (which he did horribly at imo) or his job at Bain

This is followed again by you claiming it's a youthful indiscretion, and we need to talk about other issues.

So how exactly do you parse the hell out of that to not mean "We shouldn't be talking about this, we should be talking about other things"?

If that was not the point you were trying to get across, I suggest you may want to be a tad more careful when crafting your posts in the future. If you write them this far from the point you are trying to make, you aren't going to get your point across.

Also watched this segment on the Last Word last night. Joe Conanson who reported the story was Lawrence's guest & he gave the name of the person who was a witness. I just read that another witness has come forward & the Romney campaign will not comment. It is a strange story & it does reveal some troublesome qualities regarding Romney's character.

reminds me of an incident in madeline ca, years ago. A young couple was driving through the dinky town at night and were pulled over by flashing lights, by two men impersonating officers. they tortured and murdered the couple.

Impersonating a law officer, not as a prank with friends, but by yourself, seems like there's some mental issues.

I do believe the source here. But the source does say that Romney claimed to have pulled people over. It's possible he did, but it's also possible he was bullshitting them and never actually went through with it. It would be especially risky to pull people over in California while wearing a Michigan uniform. That would raise a lot of suspicions.

I don't even remember many pranks perpetrated on me or on any of my circle of friends--but apparently it's what rich well-connected young men do all the time in high school and college. All evidence points to Mittens being a disturbed nutcase.

168. That is truly bizarre and creepy. Just stop and think about that for a moment. What kind of person

would do something like that?? First of all, it is highly illegal, and who would have that kind of nerve and poor judgement? What kind of jollies did he get out of that? It's right up there with his comments that he enjoyed firing people and tying the family dog to the roof of the car. There's almost something very sociopathic about this guy. If this story is true and can be corroborated, it needs to get out there, although the argument will be that he did that while a young man. I don't think it really matters, as it seems to demonstrate something is profoundly amiss with this guy.

182. I'm surprised no one's mentioned the movie The Dead Zone

Because that is exactly what I thought of when I read this post. You know the scene:

Martin Sheen as President Greg Stillson, launches WW-III "It's my Destiny" and "The missiles are flying, Hallelujah, Hallelujah."

I may not be Christopher Walken, but that's the vibe I get from Willard... Yes, I am strongly in the Willard camp because I cannot call him that cutesy fluffy-inducing name, there is nothing fluffy about him. I prefer another movie image to come to mind when discussing this Bundy like person and that's Willard, the boy who controlled the rats.

That's another creepy reference that seems to fit him as well. Torturing that poor boy in prep school, what if he did have the ability to control the rats back in prep school, oh wait it was a pack that went after that boy, wasn't it? At least the rats have shown regret for their actions...

Willard said, "It's my turn." So, what you're saying is this is your destiny Willard? I would love for someone to ask him that question so there's audio of him saying "Yes, it's my destiny" so we could loop that with Martin Sheen's Dead Zone audio together. Just putting it out there into the universe for the possibility...

Sorry, this is your pipe dream Willard, America is moving forward not into the looking glass.

Robin Madden and his wife who saw the uniform at college in California and who were told about it by Romney himself, and Graham McDonald and Phillip Maxwell who actually describe specific incidents at the Cranbrook high school where Romney pulled people over. This apparently went on during both high school and college and was repeated behavior. Some of it is described in the book The Real Romney.
