Bully story a black eye for Mitt Romney
"Straight-laced and squeaky clean Mitt Romney
must show hes not the teen bully critics now say he was,
if he hopes to limit the damage from a published report
on his prep school days that paints him
as a cruel and possibly homophobic prankster
who once pinned a vulnerable schoolmate down
and cut his bleached-blond locks
Republican consultant John Feehery called
the Washington Post report troubling
for Romneys presidential bid....
For independents, its a troubling story.
... They dont like bullies, and anti-bullying has
become a issue on the national stage,
In the context of a close election,
little things like this can matter,
Romney, in a hastily arranged radio interview yesterday,
..... said he did not remember the alleged Lauber incident.
I participated in a lot of hijinks and pranks
during high school and some may have gone too far...."
Romney told Fox News Brian Kilmeade.
Some of Romneys prep-school pals
said they were stunned by the Post report."

He was the designated loser. This was all pre-planned.
That story was hilarious!
And it’s an important point (regarding the culture at the time).
So the press is in a snit over some rumor that Romney may have given some bleached-out poofter a wedgie 40 years ago. Meanwhile, they remain undaunted by Barack Obama’s documented dalliances with left-wing extremists, black liberationists, and gangster goons.
I have it on good authority that Romney jaywalked once in third grade too.
Most grew out of it. Romney and Obama never did. Both have cold evil eyes. Both are still punks.
Do these people really wanna go there????
Oh for crying out loud.
And he used his dessert fork in his salad.
"Despite outspending his rivals by huge margins throughout the primaries,
(Mitt Romney, Carpetbagger UT,CA,MA,NH,Mexico) lost Iowa, South Carolina, Florida and California.
The only primaries he won were in Michigan, where Dad was governor; LDS states;
and a few states on Super Tuesday in which his California-obsessed rivals
couldn't spare the cash to advertise.
Only John Connolly in 1968 had a worse cash-to-delegates ratio.
And John McCain rightly did not like Romney's tactics during the primaries.
(W)hen (Romney's early leads) started slipping away, he resorted to unfair,
distorted, scorched-earth negative ads, betting that his opponents couldn't
afford to spend enough for the truth to catch up to his charges."

"Peeking Out From the McCain Wreckage: Mitt Romney"
"Someone's got to say it: IS MITT ROMNEY RESPONSIBLE FOR OBAMA'S VICTORY?"
"Vanity: Team Romney Sabotaged Palin and Continuing to Do So?"
"Romney Supporters Trashing Palin"
"Romney advisors sniping at Palin?"
You mean the sitting President? Do you remember how close that primary was?
Obama is a Marxist bent on destroying America.
To anyone with an ounce of brains, there is no comparison.
You don’t have to wallow in every last Romney story in the MSM. I would hope you could tell the difference between actual historical and present issues with Romney’s liberalism and stupid, DNC-driven partisan attacks (and especially in the context of their failure to give Obama’s past any scrutiny), and avoid the latter like any sane conservative should.
Why in hell are you pimping DogsAgainstRomney.com, a site started by an Obama staffer?
Who is the most vulnerable of all? Obama, as an adult, was against saving babies who survived abortions. Romney MAY have cut the hair off another boy while a minor.
This was brought up on talk radio several times yesterday.
IF Romney’s handlers have any brains, they will turn this around to ask to have a debate with Obama about what he did in high school, college and state senate. Romney needs to say I will be glad to discuss EVERYTHING I did during my teenage years and twenties. It will reinforce the fact that Obama is trying to hide EVERYTHING he did prior to becoming a US Senator. He should not run away from this at all. This opens the door to look at Obama’s past.
PERSONALLY, I could care less if JR, you and many other Freepers stay home on Nov 6th; vote for Devil or even Dear Leader (one in the same)....
.....But if we are still around in a couple of years and the FACIST, SURRENDER-TOOL, PRO-ISLAMIC-APPEASER, HATE-AMERICA/MILITARY, NEO-COMMIE is re-elected, I and others will remind y'all on how your so called "principles" help lead to the HARM (if not DESTRUCTION) of our Great Republic.
Why not join in with the rest of the Lame Stream Media, the Unions, the West Wing, DailyKos, DummyUnderground, Media Matters and every other kook, far Left group, organization in helping toward Barack Hussein Obama's re-election? Mmm, mmm, mmm?
Oh wait, you and a few others here have already done so.
Nuttin' like helping the enemy, right?
