Mitt Romney was seriously injured in a car crash in 1968, when a car he was driving slammed head on into another car in France. Since that time Mormons have been at pains to spread the idea that it was the other guy, a Catholic priest, who was at fault, or even drunk. But there was no official indication of that. Romney was driving an unfamiliar overloaded car on unfamiliar roads. Romney was later in another car crash in France. Ann also sent him a 'Dear John' letter in France at some point, which may have resulted in stress.
This kind of accident is not rare in the United States. Laura W. Bush killed her ex-boyfriend in a car crash, for one. But you only usually hear about it when it is someone on the left, such as Ted Kennedy's disastrous accident at Chappaquiddick. When a Republican is behind the wheel, it is only a tragedy.
However, the seriousness of Romney's injuries make one wonder if he sustained brain damage or personality changes from the head injury - perhaps this explains his antisocial seeming personality; and if he is at risk for early death from CTE.
These are the symptoms to watch for:
• Deterioration in attention, concentration, memory
• Lack of insight
• Poor judgment
• Overt dementia
• Slowed muscular movements
• Staggered gait
• Impeded speech
Well, "lack of insight" and "poor judgment" are clearly Romney's but most other politicians' as well.
