Mitt Romney Bullied Gay Classmate?
Gay Student Beaten! [Video] Hate Crime?
Romney’s prep-school behavior fair game
It’s laughable for Kathleen Parker to ask if Mitt Romney’s prep-school prank (which would now be classified as a hate crime in many states) is an appropriate presidential campaign issue. [“Hero vs. bully? Let’s get real,” Opinion, May 14.]
Supporters of candidate and President Obama have had to endure years of public questioning about his ancestry, his birth place, his church, his college and law school accomplishments.
When Republicans begin treating President Obama as the legitimately elected leader of our country, instead of some political anomaly, then we’ll give candidate Romney a pass. Until that day, Romney’s mean and boorish prep-school behavior is fair game.

“For those to the premises more recently arrived, a quick primer on 1965, when this occurred,” wrotesyndicated columnist Kathleen Parker, responding to critics who’ve described Romney’s forcible cutting of the dyed-blond hair of a nonconforming student as anti-gay bullying. “Nobody knew who was or wasn’t ‘gay,’ a word that wasn’t yet in popular circulation as a noun and generally meant ‘merry.’ Homosexuality wasn’t on most high-school kids’ radar, period. If anything, Romney may not have liked Lauber’s ‘hippie’ locks, which is the more likely case given the era.” FULL ARTICLE
Mitt Romney‘s successful ability is taking over companies, make them more saleable through layoffs AND THEN SELL THOSE COMPANIES AND WALK AWAY. Don’t let amnesia overtake you. Remember: ROMNEY HAS NO EXPERIENCE CREATING MILLIONS OF JOBS. And, Congress must pass THE AMERICAN JOBS ACT. [The Congressional Budget Office said that this Obama bill will create millions of jobs. Republicans will not vote for this bill as part of their War to Tale Back the Whitehouse. We don’t need another Bush in the Oval Office.]
