However, other more recent actions indicate that the original sociopath behavior was repeated again and again. For example, what kind of mental outlook did Mitt Romney demonstrate when he asked workers to hold off from their regular jobs and instead construct a stage, so that the Bain managers could step up onto the stage the very next day, and unexpectedly and bluntly and cruelly fire the workers who built it? When Mitt Romney bought companies, fired workers and sent their jobs to China, he merely found a lucrative way for a sociopath to make money. Mitt Romney claimed he was creating jobs, when in contrast the truth is, he discovered a form of legalized larceny. There are only so many people, even today, who have the ability to order nuclear bombs to be dropped. Thank God Mitt Romney never had the chance. It reminds us, we need to be more careful in future elections not to let such damaged goods get so close to the White House. Let us return to the original incident and be open about what really happened when Mitt Romney attended the boarding school. The attack he led on the student involved pinning the boy down and using a pair of scissors to cut off his hair. It was not a prank. It was a fully prosecutable act of assault and battery. Mitt Romney apparently was a sociopath then. But is he now? Mitt Romney’s high school friends, who joined in on the assault, talked about how they felt bad about it for years. One even came across the harmed boy years later and apologized to him over drinks. So Mitt Romney’s contention that he did not remember an act that haunted his friends does not appear to be true. On the other hand, if there never was any human feeling toward the boy, which would be characteristic of a sociopath, then maybe it is true that Mitt Romney did not remember his dastardly deed, providing further evidence; he was then and is now a sociopath.

This incident no matter how long ago shows his character to be flawed. The King of Bain has shown himself to be flip flopper and someone who cannot be trusted with anything. He loves firing people, he loves placing his dog on top of the car, he loves destroying businesses, he loves letting the auto industry die. I am for a president who has strength of character and compassion for others. Obama has those qualities and has stepped up and shown leadership and political conviction. Romney is gutless and rude with no policy on anything. Wake up America...smell the republicans!! Romney is so out of touch with real America.

Is this the kind of character we expect from a candidate for POTUS? Shouldn't a federal intervention team been assigned to the Romney home to guard society from the obvious danger posed by such a child sociopath? Where were his parents? the Mormon elders? the playpen police? BULLETIN: At the age of 2, young Mitt Romney hurled a toy at his sister, whacking her upon the head.
