Doctor: Filner may possess sociopathic characteristics

SAN DIEGO – Without knowing the mayor of San Diego personally, a local psychologist can only give her opinion, but believes Bob Filner is showing sociopathic characteristics.

As Filner is expected to enter a behavioral facility for two weeks of treatment many San Diegans continue to call for his resignation. Still, the mayor refuses to resign.

“Shame would’ve driven him to resign immediately,” said La Jolla psychologist Dr. Sage Breslin.“I certainly think his bravado indicates he doesn’t have empathy or compassion.”

She focused on Filner’s apology and called it insincere.

“He was smiling when he said ‘I apologize for any women I offended,’ that word stuck to me. It’s assaulting them,” Breslin said.

Dr. Breslin followed President Bill Clinton’s sex scandal and watched as he chose not to resign.

I’d say that 9 out of 10 politicians are either narcissists or sociopaths.

You can always tell a slime ball by the way that they smile. Whenever I see Obama put on that fake smile I know he’s about to do something evil..he just smiles to lesson the blow but you know it’s coming

The real problem is that the RATS put up with this guy for years in Congress and then promoted him for Mayor of a really nice city. The guy is a creep..always was and always will be. It is obvious the the leadership of the RATS ignored the input of their most treasured members..women. They told them to shut up and fall in line..or else.

Good point, and look at all the other Democrat abusers of women, who get at least one free grope.

I had some dealings this past week with a person I believe is a sociopath. My husband and I were friends with him and shared a number of meals together with lots of laughs, lots in common. So, I hired him to do some work for me. In short order he not only took another job with a competitor but managed to sabotage my business. When I listed everything he had done, with plenty of corroboration, he sent a long, angry email demanding 3 times to “examine your memory.”

No remorse, twisted my words against me, told me that I had said and agreed to things that I knew I hadn’t. He was completely unprepared for my going directly to business colleagues that he had either downright offended to the point of losing their business OR never made contact, claiming that he did. He’s like a childish bully with no understanding of how adults operate in the professional world.

Now he’s running scared and in a major CYA mode. In an email he said that he thought highly of me and would never badmouth me and expected me to do the same. Ha. There’s no way I’m going to shield him from the repercussions of his actions.

Putz.

Sorry to take the wind out of your sails, Dr. Breslin, but ALL politicians are sociopaths.

Filner seems “outside” of what’s happening - it doesn’t seem real to him.

Nothing seems to touch him.

If you have met 25 people, statisticly, 1 of them is a clinical sociopath.

I wonder what Dr. Breslin has to say about obama.

Damn, that Filner is a creepy-ass cracker!

He looks like a lefty cartoonist’s model for a greedy, woman-hating, corporate Republican.

She destroyed all credibility she might have had when she said Clinton “was sick with remorse and shame”.
I spent two years studying psych in college and loons like this woman caused me to change my mind about becoming involved with the psychiatric community.

"They told them to shut up and fall in line..or else."

They probably told them to get their cute little asses in line. Whereupon Filner promptly groped them.

Bwahahahahahahahahaha:

“Dr. Breslin followed President Bill Clinton’s sex scandal and watched as he chose not to resign.

“Unlike Mayor Filner when the light was shown on Clinton’s behavior, he was mortified. He was sick with remorse, guilt and shame,” she added.

President Clinton worked hard, she added, to change his behavior and took it seriously.”

Frankly, these politicians learned well from Bill Clinton. When the Lewinsky scandal broke, the expectation for many was that he would resign in shame. Didn’t happen. He toughed it out and won over public opinion (at least, female & minority public opinion). Basically, he provided a new template for these guys. Now, not every politician is Bill Clinton, but they will sure try to see if they can emulate him.

I’m still not convinced he’s toast yet, and obviously, neither is he.

If Clinton survived after raping that woman, Filner might beat this.
At his core, he’s what they voted for.
