Death_Poot: I think this is the final straw.....will be turning the news off till after November.

We should just leave the office vacant. If we're judging whether we are going to vote for someone based on a supposed incident back in high school well over 30 years ago, then, collectively we have failed as a nation.

By this "gotcha" logic/politics, no one qualifies to be President

And yes, I would be saying the same thing if the accusation were leveled at Obama.


FARK is the reason I could never run for political office. I think one time while drunk I tried to Troll and pretended to be pro NAMBLA. In fact at one point in time I probably claimed to be for every vile thing that can possibly exist, and against anything good and wholesome. Those statements, would come out and would be reported as fact.

In fact just the other day I claimed to be denying life saving surgeries to infants to save health insurance companies money.

So now Obama is forcing gays to get married. Personally I'd rather be held down and have my hair cut.

keylock71: Whatever... I don't doubt Romney has been an entitled prick most of his life, but I couldn't care less about this. I wasn't going to vote for that shameless plutocrat anyway for far more important reasons than he was a bully at prep school.


The campaign to show Romney as a silver spoon douche has a wide target audience. Most politics tab farkers would already think he is based on his tax plan alone but casual political observers might need these personalized stories.

Corvus: Don't Troll Me Bro!: First he was denying it, now he's apologizing for it.

He's doing both.

He is saying:

A) He didn't do it
B) He doesn't remember
C) He probably did do it
D) It was no big deal
E) He did it but he didn't mean to hurt anyone. (because you know insulting people or tackling them and cutting their hair is a friendly gesture)
F) He is sorry (about them being offended not his own actions)

What a surprise it's only been a couple of hours and he already has taken every position on this issues.


Except the one where he admits being a big douchebag and offering a real heartfelt apology.

Yeah but the other kids, who were involved feel bad about and many have apologized for it. Romney doesn't even remember, thinks it's normal fun and doesn't give a shiat.

He seems like a sociopath unable to empathize with other human beings.

Most of them don't run for president. And then pretend they don't remember instead of just saying "I did stupid things when I was a kid, they were wrong, I'm sorry". And then change their story later that day and start apologizing for the thing they claim they don't remember.

I just think that it's ridiculous that this "gotcha" bullshiat has sunk this far.

Yea. The real problem here isn't that a serious bullying incident that escalated to physical assault came to light in relation to a person asking us to give him the keys to the entire country. It's not that he just pretends he doesn't know about it even though five other people seem to vividly recall the incident. Or that he then changed his story when he realized people weren't buying his argument of "selective amnesia".

The real problem here is that it came to light at all and forced Romney into a position where he had to actually show some actual character. Something he promptly failed to do. Because republicans hate gay people and will only think better of him for the bullying.

Yea. Mitt Romney and republicans. They're the real victims here. Let's not forget that.

Bullshiat. Most kids would have been kicked out of school for what he did. Minimize it all you want with the lame "all kids do stuff like that", but, no, most kids don't come close to doing things like that.In fact, most kids (even back in Romney's day) avoided kids like Romney because they recognize a sociopathic asshole when they see one.

I want everyone to know the rumor that Mitt Romney raped and murdered a young boy in 1990 is not true. It's a malicious lie that should not be spread. Nor is there any truth that this event was part of a secret Mormon ritual.

Anyone who spreads such lies are sick twisted bastards!

Most of the bullying done by most people is a lot tamer than holding someone down and hacking off their hair with a pair of scissors. That's not "the sort of bullying everyone does at some point". That's the sort of bullying hardcore bullies do, especially at a well off prep school.

It's like one of the final scenes in a Stephen King novella, and those kids are not going to be redeemed. They're going to be eaten by the demon-clown, and the audience will cheer.

I don't know if you have children or not, but if your kid came home from school with their hair shaved off because of a classmate "prank" how would you react? I doubt you'd be as forgiving as you seem to be in this case.

Oh my gosh, no. They need to be helped to convert them back to a normal orientation.

If they can't or won't be normalized, then well... we tried. Homosexuality is against nature. And if nature takes its course, who are we to interfere with the order of things?

WTF are you talking about?

I have definitely been guilty of being an unsensitive adolescent to some of my peers back in the day.
But...

To fuggin' pin someone down and assault them?
Cut their hair?! How degrading and humiliating.

That is something I can't EVER imagine being the instigator of.
It shows a basic deficiency in character and morals.
Remember, though, at this time Romney believed that black people were literally Satanic (see Mormon doctrine).


That you can relate to Romney on this is farked up.

Back then? No......I was bullied (preachers' kid) incessantly, we moved every two years or so. Not a single time did any of the bullies ever get punished. I was always told to "man up" or "it wasnt that bad.

[hpronline.org image 428x648]

Mittens has been very outspoken on his anti-apology stance.

unless of course the voters really want apologies. in that case, he'll apologize for anything and everything.


Somebody better write the apology for him, because if even once in his pampered, entitled existence, Romney actually turned a critical eye to his own behavior, from bullying kids to making millions by putting people out of work, the sheer force of the sudden revelations of just how disgusting and vile he is may very well cause his head to explode.

Sorry, but you don't know me, like I don't know you. Dont presume otherwise. Was bullied constantly, beaten up, as a kid, until I finally fought back and broke a football jocks' nose. Was beaten to a pulp for it, but no one ever messed with me again.

Can we marry Joseph Smith off to another Mormon? Or should we go outside of Mormons and say announce he posthumously married Hitler?

Not defending anyone, I'm just saying, like the initial time I posted, that stuff like from this 40+ years ago ought not to have a bearing in political campaigns today, for candidates in either party.
