50 Years Later, a Bullying Case Snares Romney
The New York Slimes ^ | May 10, 2012 | ASHLEY PARKER and JODI KANTOR

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.

The media has no credibility. They will say anything to help Obama. Anything.

And everyone knows it.

The Presstitutes who decried the tactics of Sen. Joe McCarthy engage in more dangerous character assassination everyday in the name of advancing Socialism.

I'm sure it was a coincidence. /s

Based on his behavior during the primaries, Romney probably was a bully. But in the time period talked about, homosexuality was not accepted. Nor was it admitted. Bullying wasn't an issue either. It was something that kids dealt with in their worlds. It wasn't like living in an episode of Glee.

So I am forced to call b.s. on this story, even if I don't like Mitt at all.

Any other candidate or president that waxed poetic about former drug use, even in high school, would have been smashed into the windshield like the proverbially bug.

“He (nobama) already admitted to eating a dog.”

Which end did he “eat” the wiener?

I guess there is a time and place for every talent.

We shall see if Mitt is the bully he appears to be against “Toddlin’ Town” as he was against his Repub opponents during the primaries.

When I was 12 I hit a girl with a wiffleball bat. So, now I need to find her and ask if she turned out gay... to see if I am guilty of a hate crime.

Hypocrisy. At the time Obama benefited from the protection and tolerance of heterosexual marriage and heterosexuals like Romney. Now that he is cushy and in power, the hunger games of sexual demoralization and slavery under the gay rights are on, without Obama ever having to deal with what social experiment he is foisting on the rest of us.

It is Zero who never plaid by the rules he imposes on others. Romney plaid by the rules and never “came out” when the rules were changed and it was too easy to do it, or mandatorty, for that matter.

Every once in a while, there is some propaganda about someone who supposedly knew BO... It never rings true to me, just like BO’s “composites.”

I went to small, private schools, but we all remember even the most shy classmates. BO just seems to be a ghost, it IS very creepy and off.

Precisely! And why stop at his mid-teens??

We need to know how many times he went for the fat kid in dodgeball, how many girls he kissed, and whether he received all of his regularly scheduled cootie shots.

FWIW, an military buddy of mine grew up on the Wind River Reservation near Riverton, Wyoming. A popular sport for male bonding of the local cowboys and Indians was to go into town on a Saturday night, lasso longhairs and give them the sheep sheer treatment. Sometimes it was fueled by alcohol, sometimes it was just for fun.

The local law enforcement people were very worried one night when a gang of motorcycle hippies from Denver threatened to ride up one summer night and teach the whole town a lesson.

The local cowboys and Indians were waiting for them and a fight ensured. No injuries beyond a few scratches and bruises, but the final outcome was one broken storefront window and a motorcycle gang of newly minted short-haired hippies limping out of town southbound on highway #789 to the raucous singing of a combined cowboy and Indian chorus.

Shearing hippies was evidently a fairly popular pass time in that era, especially in Rocky Mountain ranching towns.

I’d be real interested in hearing form any of Obama’s school buddies.. from anytime...anywhere.

Anytime? Anywhere? I'll take you up on that!

There actually was an in-depth interview with one of Obama's school buddies... except that they were in the 3rd grade together and he was interviewed decades later. ;-)

From 8/7/10, see WND's story Another Obama puzzle: 3rd grade in 2 countries?

The release of two sets of State Department documents through a Freedom of Information Act request has given new life to the puzzle of how Barack Obama could have attended third grade in Hawaii, as claimed by a classmate, while he has stated he was living in Indonesia at the time.


Scott Inoue says this photo shows him with Barack Obama Jr. as classmates at Noelani Elementary School in Honolulu in 1969.


“Truthfully, I didn’t even remember that Barack Obama was in my class at Noelani until that 1966-1967 kindergarten class photo surfaced, showing Barack and me in it,” Inoue said. “Then my mother found the picture of the two of us together in third grade, in 1969. Otherwise, I probably would never have remembered.”

When I was in High School in the late Sixties and early Seventies, I didn't even know what a homosexual was. Romney, in high school in 1965, his dad a VIP, and of the religion that he is, would not have known what a homosexual was either.

Awfully convenient, isn’t it, that this story surfaces out of the blue. Any proof? Any disinterested person to corroborate the story? I say bogus.
