I've been looking forward to your of this discussion all day long President Obama resorting to profanity.
And is and salts and his latest magazine interview -- -- out of psychoanalyze the candidates and their campaigns.
Psychotherapist doctor -- Lodwick.
Doctor -- regard -- psychologist adjunct clinical professor of term college.
Of osteopathic medicine and thank you both for being here thank you I'll let let me start.
With the news that's profanity yeah -- in the using the BS -- -- language.
If that's unprecedented for a president to go after insulting mocking condescending things -- said patronizing.
What is that what's going.
Yeah Clinton's negative campaigning -- And it works a -- because in some cases when you negatively characterize the other candidates.
It's like clip that different people make judgment on who they're going to vote -- on a variety of factors that and it's something that is no more X.
That's that's about the efficacy.
Yeah impact yeah I want to understand the psychology of -- I think -- person would demean themselves.
By behaving that way -- particularly of president of the United States one assumes.
Obviously -- and head that a president.
-- would rise to a higher standard and our entire set of expectations of their -- I don't think he feels he's demeaning himself he's looking to be affective and he also knows that politicians are seen -- be masters.
So it resonates and he's looking in making huge impact listen he's gonna win by a landslide if he wins -- all.
So he has to make use of every moment he had Canada did -- -- and I.
And I think -- a look at the biology of it which is behind.
A lot of the psychology right so here's the situation of -- person.
Approaching the finish line now he's already pumped up he adrenaline.
Is should find Boeing now so really the impulse control.
Has been diminished and so you say -- -- you use that word which I don't even think he'd be proud of himself using that word and now that he looks back upon it because that's not really is style.
But after going after governor Romney in that last presidential debate he still pumped up and still moving forward and that really thinking about the consequences maybe he feels he -- to make up for the first debate that he had where he seemed a little bit debt.
And this is you know making him come out more alive.
But then there isn't peculiar dynamic at work and that is that governor Romney.
Has now stepped forward elevating.
Both his rhetoric.
And -- and frankly his demeanor.
Making the contrast between the two men all the more stark and frankly.
-- it's an unfavorable comparison to the president irrespective of his reasoning -- it is internal process and impulse controls.
But whatever you would call it -- there -- such -- well.
I internal control I mean yes era in -- favorable or doesn't really matter is Obama trying to look -- -- outcome.
At night but is Obama trying to present himself as the common man.
He's he's you know he's the guy for the middle class -- -- Wants to seem presidential in writing presidential.
Now we see a role reversal where that doing what Obama was doing at the beginning which is the hold your -- try to give the bat puts put the best foot forward and it is impacting the female vote because they are -- McEnroe.
That's exactly what I was going we have watched in this talk about a precedent I mean this is a shift.
Women toward the Republican candidate it's amazing to me it needs are -- and in this you know and this is supposed to be the celebrity in chief.
Will Romney is I know I keep mentioning that isn't very good looking got.
You have known as I have noted that I don't know how it's not my type and yes go ahead you looking and and we can't deny that women are impacted by that plus.
It's come off as pretty sure of -- they think after the debates people women feel that they have a better sense of the direction he wants to gallon.
And he is really viewed as somebody who can help our economy he's somebody his very business that -- I.
And I think the when you talk about the economy yes women were flocking more towards President Obama because of his more progressive views with women.
Now it comes down to what the real issue is it's about the economy stupid and jobs and jobs and so women are saying well.
-- Not as progressive as we want to be that at the end of the day no pun intended it's about -- pocket I have to think about my family and stability and the paycheck.
And I'm sure you both agree trust.
Thank you very much doctors both always.
