Romney's losing it bigtime...

You can tell from his body language, the pitch in his voice, the increase in the words-per-minute of his speaking style, the wide-eyed, nearly-hysterical facial expressions and hand gestures, and the FACT that he threw a tantrum before the Univision taping, that he is in panic-mode, and not only angry beyond his pathetic inability to understand his own anger and others' emotionality, but frustrated and teary and no longer able to grin that stupid smirk for minutes at a time while he's being attacked or even questioned. He knows the real numbers and trends coming back from the pollsters and it is grave news: he is plummeting and the results of the election will resemble nothing seen in the modern era of the Republican Party. The fact that he was able to compensate all those months during the primaries while garnering only a small fraction of the total vote, but "winning", lulled him into a sense of security which was unrealistically optimistic. He "won" very little or nothing; his competitors hated him immensely; he, like Phil Gramm before him, thought he could simply buy a Presidential Election, and it's just not true; he thought he was destined both from religious and fiscal/cultural vantage points and he was dead wrong on all counts. He will be politically destroyed, and as far as I'm concerned, it couldn't happen to a 'nicer' guy.

Romney's crowd rubbed me the wrong way. They came across as rude and crass. It wasn't just the applause for romney, it was the blatant disrespect for the hosts.

And I saw Obama's crowd seemed to me warm, but well mannered. The biggest difference? They didn't disrespect the journalists

46. Welcome to DU! I think you've nailed the pathology perfectly!
Sat Sep 22, 2012, 03:03 PM
Sep 2012

It's part of the CEO mentality some of us have been considering for awhile - the CEO is king of his/her own little fiefdom - the company or corporation. The CEO is at the top of the proverbial ziggurat, at the point of greatest power, worship, admiration, leadership, even damn near deification. No one says "no" to the CEO. Because their own jobs and positions and upward mobility is at stake, so they know strategically it's far better for their own self-interest to bow and scrape and serve the CEO ("I like being able to fire people who serve me&quot while the CEO is the king, emperor, sultan, master of the universe, and all others are subservient and beholden unto them. The CEO is the one holding the leash(es) and everyone else underneath the CEO in the pecking order knows his/her place is with those leashes around the neck.

NO ONE dares to say no to the CEO. NO ONE tells the CEO anything but "yes, sir" or "yes, ma'am." So the CEO comes to believe in his or her own omnipotence. The whole "masters of the universe" thing in "Barbarians at the Gate" and "Bonfire of the Vanities." And when things don't work out, the CEO has no template for accepting or coping with that. When you're treated like a god, the last thing you're open to is your own fall from the celestial heights.

who also happens to be mormon, but that is coincidence.

He is not an ironworker. The company owner is also mormon, and this guy needed a job. He learned just enough to be general foreman, with copious amounts of leniency and favoritism. He is not an ironworker. He doesnt know through years of aching body how hard this is, or how long something takes, or how much harder or longer it takes to fix things he screws up.

When he realizes he screwed up big time, and it will take weeks and thousands of dollars in payroll to fix, he starts to behave exactly like this. It is like a denial of service attack on a network. It is a mass distraction, panic fear and hoping someone will bail them out somehow.

Love that romney is in this position

We need you! Because we HAVE TO make sure these bastards don't take the White House away, and don't make more inroads in the Senate or House of Reps. We HAVE TO make sure they're securely contained so their reckless, selfish, greedy ideology won't be able to hurt or threaten anybody else.




Now get to work.

Mitt is under enormous pressure. He's spent the last seven years working for this moment, he's the fulfillment of prophecy, the only thing standing between America and a thousand years of darkness, and losing means the end of the Republican party.

He's going to blow a gasket.

1. OCTOBER 3rd DEBATE and

2. ELECTION DAY

When I will cast my vote for OBAMA

I am SO pumped!

THEN- we need to concentrate on dumping all the Sarah Palin 'look-alikes'
that got elected JUST BECAUSE THEY RESEMBLED PALIN.

I have one word to describe people who voted for the Palin 'look-alikes'=

SHALLOW!!!

because that is the way it always went for him. And now reality has set into Ann and Romney's fantasy world and they just don't understand 'us people' that we don't love and adore them.

Yeh, I've noticed that look of a cornered animal in panic in his eyes. Frightening to think this wants to lead the free world. Even the Chimperor never had that scared like a little chicken look on his mug - he'd be more like a cornered weasel looking this way and that for how to escape but he didn't have full out Fear shitting pantaloons look on him, that I recall.

Was too stupid to be scared. Besides, he had Rove whispering in his ears during the debate.

Rethug turn out for their primaries was low,as the corporate media observed many times. He may have won primaries but w/ low voter participation.

his desperation is like a guy who can't get a date and get increasingly desperate... just making his prospects worse... at least he has his creepy stepford wife and robot sons and piles of cash in the Caymans to keep him company

Which he did recently...even though he's borrowing money for his campaign. Sound like Bain tactics? It does to me. This is how Rob-me handles his businesses. Go Obama!

When he opens his mouth he reflects the real Mitt. Don't get too complacent. the Koch ad money has yet to kick in.. along with his other billionaire friends thanks to Citizens United.. Free publicity for Mitt does have an impact. Ad makers are professional . Expect a real ad blitz about the last two weeks of October.

I only see Miffed in Ads the Dems are putting out and then I can barely stand it. The last I saw him he was Smirkin' and Jivin.

I was asking what would wipe that smirk off his face?

I'm really looking forward to the debates with "No Drama" Obama. What I'm REALLY looking forward to are the VP debates. Joe will take that little snot Ryan to the cleaners. I don't know why Biden has let the media make him a buffoon. If you paid any attention to him before he was VP, you know he's a very impressive guy, Just one look at Jill, and you know she'd never marry an A...hole.
