Romney just elected Trump president!

March 3, 2016

His speech against Trump saying this morning that Trump as president will destroy jobs clinched it. How did R helped T get elected? By not remembering that 4 years ago Romney praised Trump saying that Trump creates jobs. He even said that Trump was even more successful as a businessman than Romney. Now, you know why Romney lost the 2012 election to Obama. The man doesn’t understand psychology at all. Anyone who appears as a phony politician and speaks ill against someone else will make the other person look good. Romney didn’t understand that you got to know how to use preempting and disarming or you lose. He attacked Trump personally and then implied that it would be wrong of Trump to attack him personally!  Voters hate phony and dishonest politicians. Romney is a confused republican who “forgot” to listen to Reagan who said once, “Don’t destroy republican unity. You lose if you attack other republicans.” Apparently, as an “establishment” republican Romney couldn’t self-control his hate for Trump and wouldn’t realize that what he said would help Trump get more votes, not fewer votes.

For me, before Romney spoke, I was for Trump with some reservations, now, after Romney spoke, I will vote for Trump for sure. Too many phonys who did nothing for America love to put Trump down, may be it is time for good people to exercise voting power and kick asses up in Washington.

Ryan vs. Biden! Tonight!

October 11, 2012

Why the exclamation marks in the title? For me as a psychologist, this across generation debate tonight is an opportunity (for you too) to observe in-action what one of the greatest psychologists in history said about what happens when a young man faces an older man who could be his father. Freud said, “The antagonism is fundamental, a part of the Oedipus Complex. It is especially intense in politics when throughout history older men had sent younger men to die in battle.”  Well, I don’t expect Biden to slaughter Ryan, afer all they are both civilized and tonight have a higher calling in politics that could backfire only if Biden’s ID overwhelms his EGO or SUPEREGO. Here are my predictions:

1. Biden will act more emotional than Ryan.

2. Ryan will be better with facts, numbers and statistics.

3. Their values differences will show a great contrast. Their expressions will be even more diverse than Obama and Romney!

4. Biden will talk a lot about the past, Ryan more about the future.

5. Ryan may help Romney by a percent or two with the young, Biden will not help or hurt Obama with the old.

6. Biden will appeal to older people but not bring them to vote more than expected.

7. Ryan will appeal to younger voters but not bring then to vote more than expected.

8. The debate tonight will not be polite.

9. Psychologists watching the body language and verbal expressions tonight – bring your note-pad with you for a classic Freudian observation.

10. For you, lay people, the best part of watching the debate tonight will be watching a great political movie drama. Enjoy!

Predictions: Romney and Obama.

October 2, 2012

Obama will win the debate tomorrow because his body language is superb, voice diction is soothingly exuding confidence and his ideas are not that terrible. Obama will win reelection in November because of Romney’s weakness,… he is too nice of a guy, but doesn’t care about the poor that much. Obama will bomb Iran one day because they won’t budge on anything: compromise is not a word that the ayatollah understand.  Obama could never balance the national budget because he is not out to destroy the middle class. The democrats will continue to be the majority party in the Senate because the voters run out of smart candidates. They have no good choices. Obama will not get you all employed no matter what he says – or does. Obama will win everything he desires with his charismatic rhetoric – and some things with his action.

Romney will lose the debate tomorrow because he is not as dynamic as Obama in his presentation. His body language suites the board room, not the voting booth…or a high stake debating team. Romney will lose the election in November because of both himself and Obama. Romney as president would never balance the budget, but could shrink the deficit more that Obama would. Romney could never bomb Iran, it’s simply not in his personality to bomb anything…his general anger energy level (the thing that motivates aggression) is half of Obama’s. The Republicans will continue to be the majority party in the House, albeit with a smaller number. Romney could not get you all working either. Romney is a too nice of a guy to be a president surrounded by wolves. Obama thrives on having enemies he can make into friends. Romney thrives on pretending to have friends among his business associates.

I am an American citizen. How would I vote? Did you have to ask? You are not kidding, are you? Well,  I couldn’t vote for anyone since Teddy Roosevelt, except for JFK in 1960 and look what happened. Teddy described a good president as someone who would “Walk softly and carry a big stick.” Since we are into that, how would I characterize Obama and Romney, you’d ask? Well, Obama is, “Walk softly and care a stick you’d hope you’d never have to use.” Romney is, “Walk very softly and carry a tough look.”

 

OBAMA OR ROMNEY: IS THAT ALL we GOT?

September 8, 2012

Yes, these are the only two choices you have in November. Yes, I know, most of you will vote for Obama. That’s because you didn’t read my books the psychology of investing during the chaotic Obama years that came out last year and the psychology of investing: how to play the game and win that came out the first year of the Obama presidency. Some of you will vote for Romney – for the same reason. You didn’t read my two books. Listen, you are smart, you know that I am not trying to sell books. Most well-known American psychologists have plenty of money. Then why am I promoting my books? The ideas, my friend, the simple ideas how to renew America that neither Obama nor Romney would ever think about… not because they are stupid, not at all, politicians who get to run for president are not stupid. Then, are the people who voters for them stupid? No. They are uninformed. They read the wrong books and listen to – CNN! What are some of my great ideas?

I will give you one, a big one: I taught psychology at Rio Hondo College in Whittier, California for 26 years. I know the ins and outs of community college education. I got my start as an immigrant in 1964 at Los Angeles Community College, then UCLA and Finally USC. Let me tell you, dude, if you don’t have enough money or you have a lousy job or you are unemployed, get your butt on the bus and ride to your nearest community college. Walk in to the  counseling office and financial aid. Take an occupational preference test. You do it right now and do it right and you may become a millionaire around BOOM age – becoming your own man! If you are a female student, call the department of education and ask them to change BOOM to BOOP – becoming your own person! Get going, man or woman, get going. Now, what has this got to do with Obama or Romney? Read my books to find out that the job of a president when unemployment is high because jobs are shifted overseas is to set up a White House Educational Commission (WHEC) to study how to train or retrain the unemployed in new trade skills, high-tech and entrepreneurial skills. Obama didn’t do that and Romney doesn’t even know what I am talking about. Well, go vote on November 3rd. One way or another the American dream will continue to be a reality for immigrants like me, but, what a shame, it could have been a reality for every one. I truly care about you.

On a second thought, I’m not sure the American dream could be a reality for everyone. Dr. Abraham Maslow, the great social psychologist, points out in my psychology textbook that people who strongly identify with their culture can “rise only as high as their culture let them rise.” I know, I make you think about heavy stuff. Enjoy! You deserve the best. If you are poor, get your butt on the bus and… (you know the rest)!

The Crisis in Egypt.

February 2, 2011

A letter to the American people,

Please forward this posting to everyone you know. If we continue to vote for presidents like Obama, Bush, and possibly Romney in 2012, we are asking for more of the same. I say that because I just saw an interview with Governor Romney on CNN. He had no idea what to do about Egypt (if he was president), just like Obama, fickle minds, NOTHING TO OFFER WHEN IT IS SO EASY TO OFFER SOMETHING!  You have seen one politician, you have seen them all!

Here is the great solution to the Egyptian crisis that Romney or Obama could not come up with. I am ask Harper to initiate it:

Mubarak has already scheduled the election for September 2011. Good. Let him announce on TV that Egyptians have 6 months to form political parties to run in the election.

Let Mubarak ask Harper to get Canada’s Election Commission to form and supervise the democratic process in Egypt, including explanations to the Egyptians how to register, form political parties, supervise elections, and all the other conditions necessary for a free election.

Come September, we can assume that the following political parties will emerge: Mubarak’s party, approx. 20% of the votes, the Moslem Brotherhood about 25%, an Egyptian Democratic Party (EDP) about 30% and a Labor Socialism (LS) party the rest. Let Canada teach them how to form a coalition government supervised by the UN security council. You will then have good transition and a democracy in Egypt!

Will that happen? No, because neither Romney nor Obama nor any politician is REALLY interested in the people in the world. The only skills politicians nurture over time is how to influence voters to vote for them come election time! It is sad because the world can be good for people and it doesn’t take brains to do it right!
