A Prominent Psychologist Looks At The GOP Presidential Candidates-- And Hurls
Dr. Tiffany Sanders has a PhD and is a licensed psychologist and certified Chicago school psychologist. She did a brief psychological analysis of part of the Republican 2016 presidential field-- and it looks pretty piss-poor. She doesn't trust politicians to keep their word when it comes to upholding campaign promises to constituent groups once they're elected and safely in seats that rarely change. She specializes in treatment of depression, anxiety, trauma and other mental health challenges, treatment a lot of Republicans will need late next year... or treatment all of America will need the following year. Here's how she graded each of the candidates:
Jeb BushGrade D
Positives: Confident and experienced.
Negatives: Entitled and privileged due to the presidency because of family’s lineage. Americans may feel uncomfortable due to the Iraq war fallout from his brother.
Positives: Organized, efficient.
Negatives: Rigid, Unknown, uncertainty of who he is and what he stands for. Lacks personality. which may make it hard for others to connect with him as an everyday American.
Positives: Rebel rouser and gutsy… willing to take risks and to openly object to those within and outside of his party.
Negatives: Aggressive, Dominating and outspoken
Positives: Appealing, open-minded, youthful, and tries to connect with millenials and non-traditional music artists. Likely to connect with younger voters.
Positives: Talented, smart and savvy. Traditional conservative views that fit well with Republican party.
Negatives: Inflammatory and hostile. Doesn’t connect with those outside of the base and he is inflammatory. Beyond health care, his lack of knowledge of important governmental areas kills his presidency.
Grade D -
Positives: Blank Slate. Can rebrand herself as an ally for main street commensurate with America
Negatives: Lacks personality and character to connect outside of traditional base. She’s likely to conjure up images of other failed republican female candidates (Sarah Palin, Michelle Backman), especially since she’s never held office.
Positives: Experienced, confident.
Negatives: Out of touch, polarizing.
No Rick Perry? By the way, in case you were wondering, Blue America backs Bernie Sanders for president.
Negatives: Insensitive, indifferent, watchful
Positives: Friendly, Experienced.
Negatives: Passive, doesn't appear to have toughness needed for this position
