Is Mitt Romney a Sociopath?

Three stories lead to this question.

The least of these is the story that Romney strapped his dog to the roof of his car for a vacation trip. Certainly it shows a level of cruelty to an animal that most people find disturbing. Worse is the fact the dog was so terrified it shit itself and Romney just "hosed down" the dog and put it back in its torture chamber. Worst of all is the insane claim that the dog "loved it." Cruelty to animals, insensitive to suffering, insists the victim enjoyed the suffering - three major symptoms of a sociopath.

The second story comes from when he was in boarding school and criminally assaulted a fellow student. Organizing a gang to attack a younger student - clearly the act of a bully - shows the ability to manipulate others. He showed a desire to dominate and humiliate another. Ignoring the cries for help is cruelty to humans. There was a total lack of remorse to the point he claims to not even remember the event. So this incident has four major symptoms of a sociopath.

The third story is about how Romney liked to dress up like a policeman and pretend to be a cop. His "pranks" were to frighten and intimidate people. He would "arrest" women and abandon them without a car. His felonies include impersonating a law enforcement officer and kidnapping. Worst, however, is the creepiness factor. Serial killers and serial rapists like to impersonate policemen. That Romney chose this path for his recreation shows him to be a deeply disturbed individual.

We can add his joy at firing people, the pain he inflicted during his Bain Capital days, and his treatment of his neighbors as criminals to find an adult with a mile wide callousness streak. But does that make him a sociopath?

Of the traits of the sociopath listed here, Mitt Romney displays most of them. He is glib, manipulative, has a grandiose sense of self, and lacks remorse. He is emotionally shallow (robotic) and incapable of common empathy. He was a juvenile delinquent who got away with it because of his family connections. He is authoritarian, secretive, and paranoid. And he really does want to rule the world and will spend a billion dollars to do it.

The answer, I'm afraid, is yes. Mitt Romney is a sociopath and the dangers of electing one to the presidency cannot be overstated.

To the above poster, full of hatred, are you? So, a bully who pretends to be a cop, chops off the hair of a gay classmate, and straps his dog in crate, to the roof of his car, for a family vacation, sounds like an awesom individual to me. (Rolls eyes) No wonder the world is in such a sorry state.

anomymous: your comment is unsounnd and baseless, but simply anger. There are multiple articles online showed that there is a relationship between Wall Street behavior and sociopath, and Mitt Romney is a Wall Street raider and his bully behavior in high school, bully at Bain Capital, fail to apology, and record of lie and total lack of empathy for common people and people different from him, does qualify him in the sociopath category.

At least he's not a "muslim/Kenyan/Indonesian/Hawaiian"?? Sometimes, I can't believe I share the same air as such ignorant idiots.

MANY, MANY, people attracted to the CON ideology are either sociopaths or the willing dupes eager to slit their own throat on their command - as the above poster is evidence of.

CONS bring NOTHING to the table but FAILURE for the working class... but the dupes allow their masters to tickle their large amygdalas (fear centers) and activate their inherent racism and these morons sit up an bark on command. Good dog! Maybe your masters will meet you for a beer!? Probably not. They're too busy laughing at how easy it is to get you dupes to let them turn "The Land of the Free" into "The US of Serfs and Lords" and you into a powerless host from which to suck profit.

Read a history book, you dump, racist, dupe. CON ideology = GREAT DEPRESSION I & II. Liberal ideology = THE GREAT PROSPERITY. Know them by their fruits.... and remember... masquerading malignant narcissism as a political philosophy doesn't make it any less SICK.

I'll definitely add this to the Facebook page "MittRomneyIsASociopath".

There is nothing behind the eyes. It is an empty shell trying to mimic human emotion and behavior.

The reason people think he's creepy is the same reason people think robots or clowns or advanced cgi characters are creepy: almost human on the surface, but completely alien underneath.

I today came to the conclusion ,after quite a bit of research and spending some time with the DSM, that Mtt is a sociopath. Had he been born without wealth and connections, would be more likely to have bee ted bundy than a presidential candidate. I was very worried, how could I a lay person be the only person to see this. Thank God for google, Now at lest I am not the last sane person in America LOL.

Wow guys. Am I the only one who read that first comment as sarcasm? You guys need to get your filters checked.

I've been saying for months that Mittens is a sociopath (learned all the traits from my frightening ex-husband). It's a relief to find others who recognize these traits...and scarier to realize that this sociopath has gone so far in the path to dominate and manipulate our country.

Mitt Romney is a big steaming bowl of Chicken Soup for the Terrorist Soul. He places as much value on the well being of the average American as I place on a half inch bolt.
