Is Romney's Brain About To Blow?
Just read below:
Romney talks polls, 'character assassination,' and Mass. health law
Mitt Romney took part in three network TV interviews Wednesday night that veered in wildly different directions.
With ABC, Romney addressed polls that show him trailing President Obama, with NBC he promoted the Massachusetts health law that was a model for the national law he has pledged to repeal, and with CBS he accused the Obama administration of "character assassination." Addressing polls, Romney told ABC's David Muir that "Frankly at this early stage, polls go up, polls go down." And he pointed to the first presidential debate - one week from tonight - as a potential turning point in the race.

Asked by NBC News how he can "better connect with Americans," he referred to the universal health care law he signed into law as Governor of Massachusetts. Romney has only rarely referred to the Massachusetts law, which Democrats used as a model for the national health reform law - Obamacare - that Romney has pledged to repeal.
"I think throughout this campaign as well, we talked about my record in Massachusetts, don't forget - I got everybody in my state insured," Romney said. "One hundred percent of the kids in our state had health insurance. I don't think there's anything that shows more empathy and care about the people of this country than that kind of record."
Romney also referenced his church, another rarity during the campaign, although members of his Mormon congregation were featured prominently as character witnesses at the Republican National Convention.
"I think people have the chance, who watched our Republican convention, to see the lives that I've had a chance to touch during my life, to understand that as I served as a pastor of a congregation with people of all different backgrounds and economic circumstances that I care very deeply about the American people, people of different socio-economic circumstances," Romney told NBC.
Separately, in an interview with CBS News, Romney suggested the Obama campaign has engaged at times in "character assassination" against him.
He was asked by CBS News' Jan Crawford about conservatives who say he should be more aggressive and whether he will be in the coming month.
"This is a campaign, not about character assassination, even though that's what I think has come from the Obama camp by and large," he said.
"Do you think the Obama camp engaged in character assassination?," asked Greenberg.
"Oh yeah, sure, they try and completely misrepresent my point of view, along with why I'm in this race, but I think fundamentally the American people are interested in who can make their life better," he said. "Who can make people get better jobs and better incomes. And I can. He's proven that he does not have the capability to do that. I do, I've proven that throughout my career. I think that's what it's going to come down to, so I listen to a lot of advice but frankly I'm going to keep on my message, which is I know how to get this economy going, create jobs, more take home pay for the American people."
SAY WHAT? tb
Sure, Mr. Romney, you NEVER lie. I think you lie so much you don't know the difference between TRUTH and MENDACITY! tb
Oh yes, Mr. Romney you really care about people!
"There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it -- that that's an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what. ... These are people who pay no income tax. ... [M]y job is not to worry about those people. I'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives."

This man needs a brain-scan! I have said this once and I am saying it again. For the most part Romney is acting no better., no worse than the rest of the GOP hypocrites but as least the teapublicans stay somewhat on course in their bigotry and misinformation... Romney is ALL OVER THE PLACE and doesn't seem to have direction??? I hope someone gets this man to a hospital, fast; hes a time bomb ready to blow. Scary Stuff!
PS: I first came to this realization when I saw this mocking picture on facebook, I commented at the time that perhaps, indeed, Romney should see a brain specialist to try and find out why... He is making NO SENSE at all.
The reason for the above picture was this gaff (below) that Romney made upon his wife's safe emergency landing of the jet she was a passenger on. tb

Ole Mitt needs a brain scan... I'm serious; I think he has a growing tumor on one of his frontal lobes or both. thethinkingblue
EXCERPT: THE frontal lobes of the brain are the most anterior, which means they are positioned right behind your forehead and at the top-front of your head. There is a left lobe and a right lobe.
The frontal lobe is surrounded by five other important brain sections: the parietal lobe, the occipital lobe, the cerebellum, the brain stem, and the temporal lobe. The frontal lobe is a critical center and it controls the "essence" of our humanity, according to Dr. Donald Stuss of The Rotman Research Institute.
The frontal lobes, which are also called the cerebral cortex, are the seat of emotions and judgments related to sympathy, which is the ability to feel sorrow for someone else's suffering, and empathy, which the ability to understand another's feelings and problems. They are also the seat of understanding humor, including subtle witticisms and word plays. The frontal lobes also recognizes sarcasm and irony. And they are where recognition of deception occurs. The frontal lobes control the processes called "mentalizing" upon which our socialization is based; this is the ability to understand another's mental processes.
Other functions that the frontal lobes control are the functioning of sequencing events, which is the ability to plan a series of movements needed to perform a multi-step task, like making a sandwich. Spontaneity of facial expression and of interaction with others is also controlled by the frontal lobes as is the function of flexibility in thinking processes, for example, being able to conceive of and choose between complex alternatives in a social environment. The problematic opposite of this flexibility is perseveration, which is the fixed persistence of a single thought. Both attentiveness of focus on a single task and resistance to emotional lability, which is commonly referred to as mood changes or mood swings, are controlled by the frontal lobes.
The ability to solve problems, which often depends on flexible thinking, and the ability to correctly express language are both controlled by the frontal lobes, as well. In addition to this, our personalities are controlled by the frontal lobes. This is not all, though, as they also control movement, initiation, emotional impulsivity, memory, sexual behavior, and judgment.
