    I think this fits in with the Republican's obsession with "Family Values." We often see how their family is exempt from most of their abuse as long as they tow the line. Of course if they become too independent, they get slapped down -- spouse abuse, elder abuse, child abuse. Anyone who threatens the narcissist's dominance is quickly attacked. But afterwords, the abuser has no problem, often going so far as to say "I hit you because I love you so much." Basically saying what they really love is how you prop up their self-esteem as a "Family Man."
