Mitt Romney wants to be president but admits to bullying a gay teenage student. As the report goes, Romney didn't like the bleach blond hair of the student draped over one eye so he tackled him, pinned him to the ground and cut off his hair as the boy cried for help. Is this just a youthful prank or can Romney be trusted to lead all citizens of the USA fairly?

Yes I have read it and I am glad you have. The difference is that Mitt Romney was an adult when he held down a gay young man and forceably cut off his hair. he should have known better.There is a difference between a child and an adult.
The man that supposedly spilled the story on the Romney incident is also saying he was very misquoted and did not say what the media attributed to him. Romney does not remember the incident but apologized anyway.
Actually the story about Romney's attack on the student was given to the Washington Post by five former students who were involved. http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/mitt-romney...
Not understandign what you are saying. Little did I know that my simple question would result in rants andnot answers.
@Joan King Don't play the "I don't understand" game. Your purpose was clear. The question was designed to get a thread of anti-Romney rants going. You hoped everyone would be of the same mindset. But Obama is the bully and we do not worship him.
Do you hold eating dog against a billion people in the world? Do you know how many times you ate dog and didn't know it? Get serious.
I could substitute "bullying" for "eating dog" in this sentence with the same effect.
I am sure that we are all guilty of doing something mean and wrong - intended or not. Forgiveness is important!
Perhaps we need a Presidential Candidate Qualifications Manual. It could rival the size of the Healthcare Reform Bill which was just under 2,000 pages.
@ Availiavision This is typical lefty thinking. Like when Dan Quail was in the National Guard so they called him a draft dodger. But when Clinton came along it was "unfair" to hold him to the same standard. Same applies to harrassment, OK only 4them
Touchy! touchy! Do I smell fear?
A childish prank is much different than what Mitt Romney did as an adult - forceably holding down a gay student and cutting off his hair as he screamed for help.
It's shameful that the importance of choosing an important world leader has come down to a trivial game of Tit for Tat! Only in "Amercia."
Yes I guess it was ok to believe in the right to have several wives on religious grounds not so long ago, but not in the right of the gay community to choose a partner for life or to even live their lives without being bullied. Can one trust a bully?
Well, I think you just hit a commonality between some gays and some Mormons! They both ask why should legal marriage only be between one man and one woman? Just because my forefathers did things doesn't mean I personally accept the behavior.
There was polygamy in the Obama ancestry too. But please censor this because you worship him blindly.
