In response to Romney's cruel gay-bashing youth, staffers are struggling to come up with a good example of Romney's compassion. Like this one:
In defending Romney as "deeply compassionate" and "unfailingly kind," [Kerry Healy, a campaign adviser] referred back to debates during the GOP primary when Romney was "being attacked from every side."
"His response was always professional, calm, civil," she pointed out. "In fact, he even intervened on behalf [of] -- to try to help -- Gov. Perry when he was stumbling. His impulses are very kind impulses and there should be no debate about whether or not Gov. Romney is a bully."
That's right. Romney was nice to Rick Perry during a crushing gaffe. Boy, his Commander Data Emotion Chip must've been working overtime on that day.
