Would Sigmund Freud have a field day with Republicans?
Sigmund Freud came up with the idea of psychological projection - which is basically when someone projects onto other people belief or actions that they themselves hold or have carried out, but are in denial about. For example - if someone is a habitual liar - they might hide it by accusing others around them of lying. It sure looks like Mitt Romney is guilty of this sort of psychological projection. After all - one of the central messages of his campaign is how awful Obamacare is - even though Mitt Romney was the first to enact a version of Obamacare in Massachusetts while he was a Governor. And while the issue of healthcare is the most obvious form of projection by Mitt Romney - there are several others.
