The alarming thing about Romney is that he has been running for president for years, but he still doesn’t know how to read a room. He doesn’t take anything in, he just puts it out. He doesn’t hear himself the way the rest of us hear him.

In the Mitt-sphere, populated by his shiny white family, the Mormon Church and a narrow, homogenous inner circle, Romney’s image of himself as wise, caring, smart and capable is relentlessly reinforced. That leaves him constantly surprised that other people don’t love what he is saying.

Thanks.

What amazes me about Romney is that it doesn't matter how unsympathetic he is.

Half the population is going to vote for him anyway.

It's as if his lack of empathy helps him.

C'est la vie aux Ă©tats-unis today in age.
