3. It's simply too deeply ingrained in him to feel that the public deserves to know his inside business

He's a CEO. CEOs are accustomed to answering to basically nobody. I mean - look at the CEOs who've gone in to testify before Congress. They skate and slide and bullshit-blather and fast-talk and fancy-step but they don't cough up much. They're imperialist weasels who recognize NO public obligation or responsibility or accountability. Because they believe it simply doesn't apply to them. And they don't do so because there's this imperiousness about the level of CEO. You're on top of the ziggurat. You're The Big Guy. Everybody else is underneath you in rank. You don't work for anybody. They all work for YOU. And they're damn lucky to have their damn jobs too, so they should just shut up and stop annoying His Lordship - who doesn't owe them any explanation on anything, EVER! And besides, they have no right to ask - CERTAINLY no right to demand anything of him!

It's a CEO mentality. A Major-League Superiority Complex. Every CEO is a KING of his own little fiefdom in the corporate world. And the CEO mentality has no business in government at all, much less in the White House! The president is NOT a CEO, and certainly no king! George Washington himself put a stop to that! That's not how it's structured or how it was intended. The president is - gasp, choke - a PUBLIC SERVANT. In the PUBLIC SECTOR. And believe me, romney, with his CEO mentality, clearly doesn't fancy himself as anybody's servant, that's for DAMN sure!!! He's an aristocrat who, he believes, was born to rule. His word is law, and you're not supposed to question it, you're just supposed to follow his orders. He believes that his being a CEO entitles him to say "Jump," and YOU, lucky commoner, are entitled merely to ask "how high?" Just like everybody else in the corporate structure beneath him, that he sits on top of, has to do in the private sector. And yeah, that's how it works in the private sector. But it DOESN'T work that way in the PUBLIC SECTOR, in which a president operates.

romney WILL, however, bring that kind of mentality into the Oval Office if Heaven forbid he's elected. That's what he's used to, that's what he knows, that's where he's come from, and that's basically who he is. george w. bush had this disease too, if you'll recall.

It's the World's Biggest Entitlement Program: yet another republi-CON who presumes it's simply his birthright to live in the White House, by some Divine decree. They're just better than you. They're the ruling class and you're one of the peons. You don't get it, you certainly weren't educated for it, and you can't POSSIBLY understand how it all works. And just like one of those haughty rich bitches in the Land Rovers and Rolls Royces who breezed in and out of those romney fundraising orgies in the Hamptons, they're just simply SUPPOSED to be on top, and you, the common people, don't even begin to understand it. So there's simply no way you can be up there on top with them, at their level, breathing their rarified air. That's not your place and was never meant to be. THEY belong on top, and YOU belong someplace else. Somewhere underneath.

Anyone remember leona helmsley? Of the lavish New York City hotel the Helmsley Palace? She appeared in all its glossy full-color magazine ads, presenting herself as the Queen of the Helmsley Palace. And the ad slogan was "...where the queen stands guard." Her haughty, dictatorial behavior and the way she treated people underneath her - earned her a "title" alright: "the Queen of Mean." Famous for her declaration that "only the little people pay taxes." Well, she got sent up the river for income tax evasion in the late 80s. Everyone figured Marie Antoinette finally got her cake shoved in her face, and she didn't live and breathe arrogance and elitism for very long. It's a major-league superiority complex. mitt romney is a male leona helmsley. Only the little people have to answer for what they've done. Only the little people have to answer questions or provide documents or otherwise show proof. He doesn't have to. You don't understand. He's actually King. And Kings bow to no one. Any more than they have to cough up answers in detail and or submit to accountability in general.

And YOUR job is simply to shut up and stop asking all these questions, and just take his word for it. And then vote for him. PERIOD. Besides, his very own Queen, Her Ladyship ann of Dressage, says it's their turn now, anyway.
