The President of the Entire United States

If Gov. Romney wants to be President of the United States, he needs understand that means the entire country.  He needs to learn how to consider the perspective of all citizens and not just the ones whose lives resemble his own.

Here's a chilling quote about Mitt Romney from Michelangelo Signorile's post today in HuffPo, which you can read in full here:

"I've never stood before someone who had no capacity for empathy."

It reminds me of this video of Romney out on the campaign trail.  Watch how Romney reacts when a Vietnam vet asks about his stance on marriage equality:



This Vietnam vet is an impressively tough old dude.  Thank you for your service to our country, sir.  I'm voting for President Obama, who thinks all veteran's spouses deserve equal benefits.
