Mean Mitt

This little story tells a lot about Mitt Romney's character:

Mitt's son tells the story of a family race (think: Kennedy family and their football games) and the moment the race was down to two people: Mitt and his daughter-in-law Mary, who had recently had a baby. In order to win, Mitt trips Mary. He admits it ...

ROMNEY: I tripped her.

I think that tells you a great deal about this man's character. He admits to cheating in order to win. He admits to tripping his daughter-in-law Mary.

But wait, there's more!

In a puff piece by Fox News, Mitt's son Tagg describes how Mitt pushes to the front of the line at family dinners in order to eat first.

The piece is meant to show Mitt at home with his loving family, but it comes across as creepy and forced, with the disturbing image of Mitt elbowing his grandchildren out of the way to get to the head of the line. I watched this video numerous times, and here are some thoughts....

Tagg seems to be enjoying making his dad look like a jerk. His wife Jen also seems to be enjoying it. His daughter (in white) seems embarrassed and then grins. Ann looks like she just swallowed a bug, and Mitt, well, he just keeps scarfing down pancakes.

He also plays pranks on his sons, asking them to smell food and then pushing their face into the food:

Mitt has a long standing reputation as a prankster, with stories from multiple sources (Google: Mitt dressed cop) about Mitt dressing up as a cop and scaring people.

These "pranks" seems a bit mean spirited, don't you think? In all of them runs a recurring theme: Mitt is bigger, stronger, and more powerful, and the kids, grandkids, and former classmates don't seem to enjoy the "joke" in fact, some of them seem disturbed by it.

Some people say that small children and dogs can sense a person's character, and I tend to think that's true...

Is that the kind of man who you want to be President? Or is this.....
