Skip to comments.Mitt Romney’s prep school classmates recall pranks, but also troubling incidents

Mitt Romney returned from a three-week spring break in 1965 to resume his studies as a high school senior at the prestigious Cranbrook School. Back on the handsome campus, studded with Tudor brick buildings and manicured fields, he spotted something he thought did not belong at a school where the boys wore ties and carried briefcases. John Lauber, a soft-spoken new student one year behind Romney, was perpetually teased for his nonconformity and presumed homosexuality. Now he was walking around the all-boys school with bleached-blond hair that draped over one eye, and Romney wasnt having it.
He cant look like that. Thats wrong. Just look at him! an incensed Romney told Matthew Friedemann, his close friend in the Stevens Hall dorm, according to Friedemanns recollection. Mitt, the teenaged son of Michigan Gov. George Romney, kept complaining about Laubers look, Friedemann recalled.
A few days later, Friedemann entered Stevens Hall off the schools collegiate quad to find Romney marching out of his own room ahead of a prep school posse shouting about their plan to cut Laubers hair. Friedemann followed them to a nearby room where they came upon Lauber, tackled him and pinned him to the ground. As Lauber, his eyes filling with tears, screamed for help, Romney repeatedly clipped his hair with a pair of scissors.

Why do we know so much about Romney in high school, and nothing about Obama in high school or college?
There are so many things that could have been mentioned, but weren't.
Like, why was he the only President, ever, of the Harvard Law Review to not actually write a law review?
Lol...The Post does another hit job on a Republican.
Whatever you think of Mittens, this stuff ticks me off. All adolescents can do mean things...I wonder why we never got any discriptions of Obama’s Childhood behavior?
We NEED one.
....and yet we still know nothing about obama.
Look! Over there! Nothing behind the curtain, LOOK AT ROMNEY’S PAST!
How about some exposes on Obama’s past, Post? How about digging up those sealed Columbia records, Post? How about some actual reporting that isn’t just pulling quotes from “Dreams From My Father” or the latest Obama hagiography, Post? HOW ABOUT SOME ACTUAL JOURNALISM, POST?
Just as the comments on this article allude, we have alleged testimony of a couple students from over 45 years ago—which attempt to portray Romeny in a bad light—yet, we can’t find any stories, any recollection of Barak Obama, not even from his college days?
“...he was walking around the all-boys school with bleached-blond hair that draped over one eye, ...”
In 1965? BS.
1965? How old is this guy?
So the press can find a junior high classmate of Romney to tell a story in intricate detail from almost 50 years ago. Yet 0bama confessed in his book to weed and cocaine use. But no one has managed to interview one person who did drugs with 0bama?
Hey MSM-IS THIS ALL YOU GOT !!!
Obama the lost years. He may have well have been delivered by UFO sometime in the 1980’s.
Well, could be. Maybe he was a surfer dude.

Curious indeed. Hmmm.....
Hey Washington Post, Where are the articles about Barry’s classmates?
***...he was walking around the all-boys school with bleached-blond hair that draped over one eye, ...

It’s possible. The Beatles had started the long hair craze and the Rolling Stones the same. I remember seeing quite a few boys at that time who really needed to be held down and shorn at that time. The military barber did the job. ;-D
