Willard Mitt Romney is too insecure to be a good President.

A prime example: his frantic and ill-founded claims about the recent events in Egypt and Libya, before he knew the facts.

An insecure person makes bad decisions under pressure.

A President has to make many decisions under pressure.

Further evidence of Romney’s insecurity is that he is famous for being a controlling personality.   Being controlling is a sure sign of personal insecurity.

There are many examples of Romney’s attempts to control.  His refusal to release more tax returns is one example.   Another is his deliberate vagueness about what he would cut to fulfill his budgetary promises.  He is always trying to control what the public can know about him.

Romney’s attempts at control can become comical.  According to an article by Louis Menand in The New Yorker, the book The Real Romney, by Michael Kranish and Scott Helman notes that ” Romney had a strict rule on long car trips, which was that he stopped only for gas. His five sons (Romney’s wife, Ann, was granted an exemption from the patriarchal diktat) were expected to make any necessary rest-room visits during the refuelling. It seems that the rule was not explained to the dog, and the poor animal reminded the family of its presence by defecating, telltale evidence of which was sighted on the rear window by one of the kids. At the next service station, Romney borrowed a hose, washed down the dog and the car, and resumed the journey.”

Such a person would make a terrible President.
