A former boarding school classmate of Mitt Romney alleges the presumptive GOP nominee hazed a student who was assumed to be homosexual. The publication of the story comes a day after Romney reaffirmed his anti-gay marriage stance in response to President Barack Obama’s announcement he fully supports the right of gays to have equal marriage rights.
First of all, I had no idea what that individual’s sexual orientation might be. Going back to the 1960′s, that wasn’t something we all discussed or considered. So that’s simply just not accurate. I don’t recall the incident myself but I’ve seen the reports and not going argue with that. There’s no question that I did some stupid things in high school and, obviously, if I hurt anyone by virtue of that I would be very sorry for it and apologize for it.
It is troubling that Mitt Romney says that he can’t remember chasing a blond boy with a gay hairstyle in his prep school days. While others held the boy down, MITT ROMNEY CUT THE YOUNGER BOY’S HAIR which offended Romney who must have already become a gay basher and homophobe. It is obvious that Mitt remembers the attack. Or, could Mitt have done so much bullying on the weak that he, indeed, can’t remember. Mitt was almost fully grown when he committed what would today be called a hate crime. Mitt it is time to “fess-up” and apologize to your many victims. Today’s remarks did not contain an apology. Any statement that begins, “If I hurt anyone…” is not an apology. The Republican Party and all Americans need to know the real Mitt Romney who the GOP has put forth as a candidate for president!
P.S. I refute your statement. In the 60s we knew who was gay and who wasn’t. What we didn’t know is the damage bully’s to our mental health. I was bullied and I remember each time! How can you rmember not knowing your young victim’s sexual orientation but can’t remember the assault? Could it be that you want the Whitehouse so bad, that your conscious mind has blocked out (repressed) all of your bad acts?
WASHINGTON — Mitt Romney made a surprise appearance on Fox host Brian Kilmeade’s radio show Thursday morning to respond to a lengthy Washington Poststory on his time as a prep-school prankster and occasional bully of closeted gay students.
“They talk about the fact that I played a lot of pranks in high school,” Romney said. “And they describe some that you just say to yourself, back in high school I just did some dumb things and if anybody was hurt by that or offended by it, obviously I apologize.”
“I participated in a lot of hijinks and pranks during high school and some might have gone too far and for that, I apologize,” he added. FULL ARTICLE

HOW EVER OBAMA’S RE-ELECTION
IS NOT “IN THE BAG”
Editor-at-large, HuffPost Gay Voices; SiriusXM radio host
Watching President Obama sitting in the Oval Office speaking out in support of gay marriage, you couldn’t help but notice how comfortable he was. I’ve described him in the past as being in the closet on gay marriage. Closeted people have a habit of cowering and answering questions tersely, often while on the run. But there he was, sitting back with the presidential seal right behind him, proudly laying out his beliefs, telling ABC’s Robin Roberts, “I’ve just concluded that, for me personally, it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same-sex couples should be able to get married.” FULL ARTICLE
