No. Pathological means "of mental disease" (essentially). To say Romney is a pathological liar would be to suggest that he is unaware of the lies he is telling or does it unintentionally, which I don't believe for a second. Romney is the typical, power hungry sociopath who will do whatever he feels necessary to win this election.

While Romney has lied more shamelessly than any nominee I've ever seen, I tend to think he's just a standard politician and the difference for him (and our perception) is the mainstream media is more inept than ever in its history, emboldening him to push it further, while the Internet makes it easier for the few who are paying attention to spot one absurd lie after another.

No, pathological liars lie even when it brings no advantage to them and indeed when it hurts them; they can't help it.  I've had experience with them.  Romney is more insincere than a liar anyway.

No.

Saying that Mitt Romney is a pathological liar implies that he has a psychological element inside him that causes him to lie constantly.  Being that Mitt Romney is not only not human, but a robot, it is impossible for him to have the desire to lie.  In case of point, it is in his mainframe, in his social software to lie as much as possible to achieve voter satisfaction with his answers.  Sadly for the GOP, Dell Computer made his programming so his lies are only limited to the limited amount of short answer platitudes he has on him.  To ensure that he is up to date it is highly recommended that you plug your Mittbott into the nearest computer device and download the necessary Mittbott Software Updates.

Caution: failing to perform the above tasks will result in total shut down of the MittBott System.



Haha!  Just lying!  The Mittbott system software is obsolete!

No, but he is convinced that the average voter is an ignorant moron with the attention span of a goldfish.

And he, by and large, would be correct. Realize we here, or in the "blogosphere", or whatever the online politics community is called this year, are all far more informed and attentive than the average voter. All he shall ever hear is the Democratic refrain of "Romney is a flip-flopper".

What about Obama and NAFTA, or his complete turn on gay marriage, which may I point out was completely absurd and far less believable then anything Romney has changed positions on? Is Obama a pathological liar?

Well, both politicians have moved significantly to the right, but Romney's flip flops are more hilarious.

While "ignorant moron with the attention span of a goldfish" might be an order of magnitude or two too unkind, it is true the average voter simply doesn't pay much attention to politics, or much of anything. They are far too absorbed in their own lives (largely justifiably). We live in a bubble- we cannot forget that.

A decidely left-wing bubble, mind you.

Substantively, I agree with you, Simfan. The ordinary voter is ignorant, mostly disinterested, and occasionally blinded with prejudiced. But this doesn't make him or her an idiot. Romney's problem is that he acts like that's what the average voter is to him, and it's obvious.
