Mitt Romney's Face Tells All—or Most, or Perhaps Just Some.

Now that the GOP primary battle is down to the two-man race Ron Paul initially predicted, it is time to get to know our opponent. Who is Mitt Romney? The answers cannot be found in what he says, for his words change with the wind and his promises are never set in stone. His record and statements flip and flop around more than the large-mouthed bass I accidentally caught while practicing casting techniques. Who is Mitt Romney deep down inside? A simple peek at his face hints at the answers.

Expert face reader and former trial lawyer Mac Fulfer admits, “The least reliable information that we ever get from people is what comes out of their mouth.” Physiognomy is the ancient practice of studying the human face. Adherents like Mac believe it is possible to learn things about someone’s personality and character from their physical characteristics. With the 2012 election looming, reading the candidates’ faces might be the only truth voters get!

Skeptical? Consider the quotes by three famous men. Shakespeare penned, “God has given you one face, and you make yourself another.” Abraham Lincoln observed, “You are born with one face, but by the age of fifty you have the face you deserve.” He selected his cabinet members accordingly! Mark Twain wrote, “I don’t want no better book than what your face is.”

So, who is Mitt Romney? By the combination of his low ears and low eyebrows, we can see that he processes information carefully, yet has a “get it done perfectly right now” approach for his staff. His eyebrows are also even and straight. This means Romney brilliantly sees all the related aspects of an issue quickly and doesn’t understand why everyone else doesn’t “get it” right away. Therefore, he wants the facts and figures presented to him accurately, but since he is smart enough to figure them out for himself, he is not overly invested in others’ opinions. The lines on his forehead indicate he has worked hard at stretching his intellectual left brain. A sequential thinker, he breaks problems down into pieces and then solves them one step at a time. This trait is indicated by his straight forehead, and is consistent with his irritation at being interrupted about a later step when he was still explaining the solution to an earlier one.

Romney can sense potential problems immediately and is very connected between his inner feelings and outer logic; he is highly intuitive. He is not easily discouraged and possesses resilience under stress, even though he is prone to burnout due to overwork. Romney maintains a good balance between his public and personal life, and relies on Ann to remind him when he is being too hard on himself. He should ease up a bit; the horizontal lines on the bridge of his nose indicate he has reached burnout in at least one area of his life. Since he has a wide variety of interests, perhaps he should develop one into an enjoyable hobby. For the record, campaigning should not count as a healthy hobby. I suggest he abandon running for president as his hobby and instead join a Harvard-style crew team.

Romney probably owes some of his professional successes—and failures—to his obstinate nature. He doesn’t expect life to be gentle or kind and he steels himself to face the world and braces himself for adversity. He takes losses on the chin—his square, driven chin. His small nostrils indicate that he is tight with money. “The eagle probably screams every time he picks up a quarter,” says Fulfer. “Even though he is a millionaire, he will always need just a little more.”

Probably one of the most charming things about Romney is his “big picture” outlook. He has a lot of global understanding regarding the relationship of things to each other. Of note, Ron Paul also shares this trait, although his conclusions about the appropriateness of certain global relationships differ. They have both developed these broader perspectives due to life experience, unlike the former Senator from Pennsylvania whose thoughts are more narrow.

Even though he may seem calm and relaxed on the outside, Romney constantly evaluates everything—much like George H.W. Bush. The two share an important physical trait with their deep-set eyes. He is also reflective, cautious, and observant. He has a logical work style and is a long-range planner. He differs from Papa Bush in that he has a naturally powerful presence. No one wants to argue with his alpha male power jaw and authoritative jowls. Romney is perceived by others as a strong, courageous leader. He is, however, cool and calculating and does hold many secrets. Don’t expect him to open up on some topics. “He plays his emotional cards close to the vest and there are some things that are in the vault,” Fulfer explains. “You could pull his fingernails out and he wouldn’t tell you!”

While Mitt Romney has a more powerful presence than does George H. W. Bush, he is actually quite similar to him in approach. While a prospective Romney presidency might resemble #41’s, he would have an easier time making allies for his causes than did Bush.

With this analysis in mind, perhaps voters and RNC delegates should “go fish” for an alternative nominee. At the very least, face reading proponents can help delegates navigate the shark-infested political waters in Tampa.

Fake Smile

I would add to the analysis. Romney has a fake smile. A fake smile uses more mouth and less upper cheek muscle. People use the fake smile when they feel like they are socially expected to smile but do not feel genuine happiness.

It can be temporary and can become part of the permanent smile so that when a person is genuinely happy their smile is "broken". Mitt clearly has some genuine satisfaction with his Life, but knows what he is doing right now is not fulfilling him.

His wife's smile is a perfect example of someone who has forgotten true happiness.

Here is a picture of the two when they are young and innocent. http://images2.dailykos.com/i/user/151025/Mitt_Romney_and_An...

Great links!

Thanks for your thoughts on the Romney smiles and the links to the photos. Your assessment is chilling!

was allegedly the most beautiful and the most brilliant of all the angels in Heaven before his hubris got the better of him. The devil is also the father of lies, the great deceiver, a murderer and destroyer.

These are definitely the traits one sees in many of the top leaders of the world today. It is time for a change.

How about someone who is wise, truthful, honest, patient, kind, loving, humble, compassionate, peaceful, gentle, trustworthy, joyful, faithful, determined, clear thinking, principled and godly. Remind you of anyone?

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)


I haven't commented in awhile (and don't comment much in general...) but this is TIMELY!!! Thank you!

The best place to shop around is in the marketplace of ideas.

Genetics Is Powerful

Don't underestimate the power of genetics. Can a squirrel panic in a straight line? Can a cat resist departing string? Does the apple fall far from the tree?

Ask any mother of more than one child. They're born with a personality. The idea of a "blank slate" was always bunk.

Yes, that personality gets shaped, and skills are applied, but there is always a pre-formed genetic foundation that, it is possible, can have physical markers for personality, just as has been proven for disease susceptibility, sexual preferences and identity, sports ability and many other aptitudes.

I don't know anything about this particular "science," but I wouldn't dismiss it without looking into it further.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

I don't know...I think Romney

I don't know...I think Romney is different. I think he was born a blank slate, or a blank Etch a Sketch I guess.

Seriously, he's like the personality-less man.

Resist the temptation to feed the trolls.

TLDR version

It is possible to learn things about someone’s personality and character from their physical characteristics.

Perhaps these quotes will convince you. They're from clever people and everything! /logical fallacy
Rest of the article.

what a pile of horse radish

Weak, liar, puppet. Studdering wimp who is afraid to say his true feelings for if anyone knew they would reject him so fast. His one redemption is that his handlers tell him to keep his mouth shut for fear of being exposed as a stupid moraly bankrupt chickenhawk IzUnReal firster zio NWO bankgangster shill.

You can dress up a pig but in the end it is what it is.


And, Yet

Dr. Paul likes him.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

From what I understand

Likes him compared to the rest of the crew but does not like any of his globalist biz as usual bang gangster support the Fed policies. So on a personal level Dr Paul finds Mittens the lest dispicable. Like well you got to give me some evidence of that one. I do not agree at all. What is your coment to mean. It is very strange to say that Ron Paul likes Mit Ronmey as if he is suporting Romeny or somthing. Come on now thats a bit out there isnt it?


This article is bunk!

It is written " Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaketh"
~ Matthew 12:34 ~

" In Thee O Lord do I put my trust " ~ Psalm 31:1~

I'm hugely skeptical about

I'm hugely skeptical about things like this. Before we know it we're measuring skullsizes and brows again to 'measure' degeneracy.

But I have to admit, this is intriguingly close to how I'd size up Romney as well. File under b for businessman and boring. Don't file under s for salesman, because campaigning is sales and he's really bad it. And definitely not under S for Statesman, which is where Ron Paul resides and that's a whole other file cabinet, whole other room, different building on the other side of the planet.

Your description of the filing system

is hugely entertaining. Do you have a blog?

Nope I don't. I lack the self-discipline to do regular write ups and I'm just better at heckling ;)


Filed under H for being the unsung Heroes of the internet.

What do you think of this political joke I wrote.

A woman was running late for work at a bar, punched the clock and dashed to the front. The bartender said,
"Good, you're here. Take this tray of apple martinis to those three weasels over there."
The woman turned and saw three weasels sitting at one table, and at another, she saw Romney, Santorum, and Gingrich.
She approached the weasels and said,
"Here you go, boys. Three apple martinis."
One of the weasels replied,
"I'm sorry ma'am, but we ordered beers. Those must be for that other table!"

Your Original Joke - Weasels, Party of Three

In my humble opinion, you should move the three names to the punchline. "The frazzled cocktail waitress apologized profusely to the weasels and scurried to the table next to them. 'Here you are! ' she said. Rick Santorum was incensed. Newt Gingrich winked and asked for her number. Mitt Romney handed her his Platinum American Express card and instructed her to please start a tab."

Good idea! I'll rewrite the punchline.

I hope PETA doesn't attack me for comparing the noble weasel to those filthy rats.

"Don't blame me, I voted for Kodos!"- Homer Simpson

I hope they do.. if it

I hope they do.. if it doesn't offend PETA it's not a good a joke ;) Hahah, kidding. I like it. Humor is the most powerful and underused political weapon!

Because after all, what do you call a stand up show where nobody is laughing? A political rally.

this is very interesting--

and not surprising. He may have a sound intellect; he may be 'competent', but he is unprincipled. He does not care about liberty. He cares only about his own ideas, and the idea that he can keep secrets is interesting in light of who his "commanders" really are!

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

All That Really Matters

Is that Romney can't beat Obama.

A handwriting analysis

would also be interesting.

Handwriting analysis is bunk.

We must cross reference his horoscope with an aura reading to get real results!

Very nice write up...

...sweet pea.

Thanks for your good works.

Keep on keeping on...one day at a time.



He's a natural problem solver

and very even-tempered. people tend not to like that on the campaign trail because people want it to be some sort of battle. they want the "fire in the belly".

It's no surprise to me that the best minds left are Ron Paul and Romney, you don't become CEO of big companies, Governor and manage the olympics by chance.

Ron Paul shares many of the same traits, only he's more light-hearted and full of joy for what he does. He didn't take his problem solving to big companies, but kept it in medicine where every day is a task to solve problems on patients, manage a business, a medical practice and run in congress with the distinct ability to stay true to principles when a large majority are doing the opposite.

That to me is important...he does the right thing when others dont.


What a load of BS

Why is a post like this on this website?

Well actually it does make

Well actually it does make sense. The summary of this is that he can lie with a straight face and he is more intelligent and calculating than you might think. This kind of person can be very dangerous as you never know what they are about. If he had the same values as Paul, he would probably make a better President, but he doesnt and he never will. He is in this for himself and no one else. He would probably sacrifice half the country if he thought it would make him look good.

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.

Fascinating Assessment of a Hollow Puppet

It is true, we don't really know where Mitt stands on any issue, but it is safe to assume he is no friend to the liberty movement. That said, we would be wise to keep our friends close and our enemies closer. That's why Reagan picked Bush as his VP. He didn't trust the man, and for good reason. This column is not the usual political regurgitation, which makes it interesting food for thought. Amusing, too! I hope a reading of Ron Paul's face is next!

Reads kinda like

a horoscope. The study of the human face here reminds me of that show "Lie to Me". Great show, wish he (Tim Roth's character) could get a read on Romney. What I personally see when looking at Romney is a man who is confident he will win because of his establishment backing, but a man who is scared to death of Ron Paul and the truth he speaks.

I'd much rather hear about RP' s facial read.


~Your perception becomes your reality~


But I found this an interesting read.
