For Mighty Mom: Mitt's arrest record

    MM and I have been feeding the silly/unimportant election claims, and I found one. It's true, too! Romeny was arrested at the age of 17...for sliding down the slopes of a golf course on a huge block of ice! Yep, that Mitt is a real wild man! I dunno about you, but I'm having trouble creating a mental image of this activity.

    Good sleuthing, Habee!
    I feel closer to him than ever now!
    Reminds me of when my dormmates and I went sledding on cafeteria trays!

    You can really see Mitt's character development.
    I bet that one incident is what inspired him to save the 2002 WINTER Olympics in SLC!
    He 'turned it around' from a negative (personal arrest) to a positive (if you're going to luge, be the fastest in the world so they can't catch you!)

      Gosh, MM - I hadn't made the slope-sliding and the Olympics connection. You're prolly right!

      Oops - sorry I misspelled "Romney" before. Finger slippage. lol

      I have no idea. Trespassing maybe? Illegal use of an ice block? Golfing without clubs?

        He was late for his "iced tee" time.
        He violated the club's "no outside food or drinks" policy.
        The ice block was made from municipal water and not Perrier.
        He neglected to yell "fore" before descending the hill.
        They were actually ok about the ice. It was the beer cart that ticked them off.

          but seriously, very funny post.

          Reminds me of a guy I know, he used to DJ. One day he showed up to a party and put his strobles on the front of his van... once they got the runners to come back to the party they thought it was pretty funny.

    Once people start getting into who did what at seventeen years old....      it so often becomes a slippery slope, doesn't it...

    Why wasn't he arrested on a felony for impersonating a law enforcement officer...with the uniform and everything?

    Why wasn't he arrested for a brutal attack on a classmate where he had someone else hold the kid down while he hacked the victims hair off?

    Give me a break. Mr. Holier than nothing is freaking me out.

      Was Obama arrested for cocaine and other drugs? Young folks do crazy things sometimes.

    It's always bizarre with Romney. Like pretedning to be a cop and pulling people over. Or living in a mansion in France and calling yourself a suffering missionary.

    The deal is that he and wife Ann got big blocks of ice and put towels on this and slid down the slopes at a golf course. The record was sealed, kinf of like the GW Bush coke bust.

      FYI, Romney didn't spend his whole mission in the mission home. When he says he lived in poor areas, he's clearly not talking about that...

      Gah
