Skip to comments.50 Years Later, a Bullying Case Snares Romney
Posted on 05/10/2012 7:08:30 PM PDT by Malone LaVeigh
The day after President Obama endorsed gay marriage, Mitt Romney found himself responding to allegations that as a teenager he taunted a prep school classmate who later came out as gay.

Exactly! I said the same thing when I first heard about this latest propaganda. They can find out about Romney 50 years ago, but no HS classmates from Punahou?? My brother-in-law is younger than Barry, but was at Punahou at the same time, AND followed basketball. He never heard of Barry (not that it’s THAT small a school, but supposedly Barry was some hot-shot basketball player).
Any classmates? Anyone who remembers him??
The concept of “bullies” resonates deeply and is pretty common human experience. People who’ve had a run in with bullies have a visceral reaction when they encounter another one.
I bet zero’s campaign is behind this - and is just the tip of the iceberg.
Now that RINOmney apologized - confirming he was guilty - I believe the bullying meme will be used to tie into him also being one of the 1 percenters - who got their $ by defrauding , cheating or abusing others (another common meme about rich people... Especially business men)
Only gays can be victims of bullying, just like only blacks can be victims of racism.
I think stuff like this actually gives Romney street cred.
Turns out he’s not as Glenn Beck says, “a monocle away from being the Monopoly guy”.
I hope Mitt resigns over this.
Can we start a petition?
Can they find something even better than this to make him resign? Please.
Keep digging, and thank you for your effort.
All Conservative Americans
If it turns out that he gave someone a wedgie he will never recover..lol.
These stories actually make Romney look great by comparison as the Obama campaign shoots self in the foot again.
It just so happens that during this exact time the president was doing cocaine and smoking weed, or so HE SAYS in his memoirs.
And this Romney story has been running all day long on radio news. Just heard it again on the ABC radio news at the top of the hour.
Haven’t heard a single thing about Obama’s HS pot smoking and goofing around, today or anytime since he became a candidate.
And for others the reaction will be — “hey, he got into a brawl. He’s normal.”
Yep. But to tell the truth, I expected they would have better ammunition than this.
Comeon! I was not much of a bully because I was more likely to BE bullied when I was a kid, but even if I remembered who did it, I wouldn’t hold it against them at this stage of my life.
I imagine Bubba Clinton would have had some funny things to say about geeks when he was in high school, as would most anyone else. This is just silly.
This is just the start of the death of a thousand cuts they have planned for Romney... He is not who he says he is that will say, can’t be trusted. Example after example will be offered keeping him on the defencive. He will get full measure and then some of what he dished out on the conservatives, tea party , Palin and others. Yes he was behind some of the attacks on Palin through his surrogates.
I would not underestimate the quiet impact of even this seemingly small one. There are many many voters out there who remember the rich kid bullies and socialites in school that looked down on them, teased them and made themselves bigger by being obnoxious, rude and snobby because that were untouchable and rich. The kids that took the city bus or lesser transportation not their own cars will remember. Might not be fair but it is what it is.
Dear NY Times:
No one gives a s**t.
From this day forward, Romney should make a point of challenging the media to compare accounts by his “childhood acquaintances”,... to Obama’s.
Obama has no “childhood acquaintances”.
That’s just weird. Creepy.
Nope......nope; nothing to see here. Just take the pill and swallow; just trust 'em. Yep. Pure coincidence.
New York Times reporting = Nobel Peace Prize = Harvard degree:
All totally, completely compromised and utterly worthless.
Who said Pravda west can’t vet candidates? It just depends on who the candidate is.
Well, this will dominate the news for a couple weeks so obama’s record can be ignored. And after that, it will be something else.
I fully expect them to come up with something Romney said or did when he was 5 or 6 years old.
“Was this a sole episode of youthful poor judgment by Mr. Romney or a larger statement about his character? “
The possibilities are endless. I can see the NY Times going on as if they’ve ID’d another Auschwicz concentration camp guard. I don’t know about everyone else, but now that “Romney the Remorseless” has been found, if the NY Times continues to hunt down every male that acted like a jerk during his teens, I’m going to have plastic surgery, change my name, and slip into Argentina.
Here is what we know about his sordid past.
The best Obama exposure site on the net:
The Obama File
The United States Library of Congress has selected
TheObamaFile.com for inclusion in its historic collection
of Internet materials
Id be real interested in hearing form any of Obamas school buddies.. from anytime...anywhere.
That kind of stuff is a more closely kept secret than the Manhattan Project was. Kept secret by the media, I mean. Anyway, Pravda west would say that was sooo long ago it doesn’t matter.
