The Washington Post reported eyewitness accounts of Governor Mitt Romney bullying a fellow student in high school. Romney responded to the article by saying that it was just a boys-will-be-boys prank. But today, wouldn't pinning down a gay kid and cutting his hair be considered an assault? See the article: http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/mitt-romneys-prep-school-classmates-recall-pranks-but-also-troubling-incidents/2012/05/10/gIQA3WOKFU_story.html

Not everyone likes bullying...
Curiously, those guys are all Democrats. One of them active in campaigning.
Wow, paranoid. So only Republicans tell the truth?
M from M - I guess your saying that Democrats are more likely to do the right thing? It amazing me the things people are willing to defend.
Now the WAPO story is falling apart. The boy's sisters are harshly critical of the bad reporting and say the incident was not damaging, nor even important enough to be known. WAPO has a reputation for political hit pieces. It appears this is another.
Yeah, he actually enjoyed being forced to the ground and having his hair cut off. He felt so proud to have gain such attention from Romney and his preppie goon squad.
WAPO has already corrected a false claim of fact in its article without including any notice of the change, a blatant violation of journalistic ethics. The sisters say it's full of falsehoods. The man is dead, so he can't set the record straight.
Wow --now it comes out that those Dems that apologized to the boy are the liars.
If they were lying why did Romney answer to the accusation? Obviously there was some truth there. Just unfortunate the man involved had passed away.
Maybe Obie's lap dogs (the press) should actually have facts instead of "some truth there". Don't ya just hate it when your thunder turns into a little fart?
Journalistic hit pieces typically hinge on sources who can't confirm or deny their content. It's one of their hallmarks.
@Gusser, I like your approach. Avoid answering my statement, by asking a different question. Laughable at best!Again why did Romney just not say he didn't do it, instead he answered by saying boys will be boys.
Ask Romney --he said it. Why did you get suckered in to this made up story. OH thats right, it another of your books, Liberalism for dummies.
@gusser...lol another question. Perhaps you need to purchase a copy of "bigotry for dummies".
gusser, your man Romney admitted that he did it, so you claiming it's a conspiracy of some liberal media is kinda lame.
At least keep your misdirections straight.
Kane--he admitted no such thing. He admitted to pulling pranks, everyone did. He stated he recalled no such incidence. Libs are so gullible. Check your facts, I'm not a Romney guy. I've never voted RepubliCRAT.
So, grabbing someone and cutting their hair is not abuse, you'd say. Just keeping with tradition.
There have been a lot of lies told about the President.
and I think the issue with Romney is about assault which is a crime, as opposed to anything consensual.
Two totally different things, so bringing this up seems odd...
Catherine, you think the murder of homosexuals in Obama's church is not in the same ball park as cutting someone's hair?
Billy: nice Dem twist! My point is obvious: it was about "he can't do that" [hairstyle] not about being gay. Read the article.
Man, last I heard they weren't murdering anyone in Obama's church. Not sure where you're getting your info (Faux News?), but think they need to have their journalistic license revoked...
