Is Mitt Romney an Aspie?

I'm starting to think that the leading Republican candidate (Mitt Romney) either has Aspergers or significant autistic tendencies. What I notice is that during debates he comes across as very wooden and "cold", yet he is clearly very devoted to his wife (who he's been married to for over 40 years). It makes him a political chameleon to be sure (his political ideology changes with the situation), but that lack of ideological rigidity might be exactly what we need right now.

Also, I think we need a president who doesn't care about social mores: Obama spends far too much time trying to get both sides to agree. It's about time we had a leader who just does what's best for the country (and the economy), regardless of who complains. It's a very tricky election for sure, but I think change is better than staying the same (when staying the same is clearly not working). Hopefully this will all be irrelevant and Ron Paul wins, but that is probably (pun intended) a pipe dream.
