he can justify it if he wants but that type of bullying cannot really be justified.
I see many Romney supporters are well known bullies when in high school.

well maybe you can justify yourself as well as fellow bullies in high school as well.
US Ron Paul supporters seem to be more of the intellectual type rather than wasting time bullying others we go and try to learn a skill instead.

sorry Romney supporters that back him on this thread which were former bullies well maybe they still are ahem working on wall street?

well rich bullies anyway thinking they can get away with robbing the world.
are you really going to tell us you did nothing in your early teen years that you look back on and say "OMG" I can't believe I did or said that? Do you cliam to be holier than thou? this is what it sounds like. How many times can we all look back and remember wanting to be part of the crowd, one does something and the rest follow..Of someone suggests doing thus and so and we went along with it. Heck I remember the time, when we just about too old to go trick or treating but not quite ready to give it up. We were 13 or 14, out on halloween and knocked on a door where no one was home. The house had one of those old fashion mailboxes that was in the door. There were 6 or so of us, one gal got the idea to take the garden hose, put it in the mailbox and turn it on. NO, we didn't do it, I don't know why, but many times I look back and think of just what damage we could have done. bTW, I was considered a pretty darn good kid, but I was a kid none the less. I never really got into any trouble, I did pretty much what my parents expected me to do and I ran around with a pretty nice group of kids.

Of course if Romney did this, shame on him, but tell us you did not do anything that would make us say "shame on you" I bet you even your God, Paul did things he would rather not have any of us know about.

What romney did was wrong but he was a kid at the time & it didnt carry on into his adult years. At least he wasnt a mommas boy (idk if obama was).

If he was, it could explain why he obviously has so much more compassion and empathy for others than Romney has in the tip of his pinky.

In a speech during the December 1969 "War Council" meeting organized by the Weathermen, attended by about 400 people in Flint, Michigan, Dohrn said, "First they killed those pigs, then they ate dinner in the same room with them, then they even shoved a fork into the pig Tate's stomach! Wild!"[14] In greeting each other, delegates to the war council often spread their fingers to signify the fork.[9]"

"On June 14, 1968... she was asked if she was a socialist and she replied, "I consider myself a revolutionary communist."[18]"

"A founder of the Weatherman group,.... Larry Grathwohl, an FBI informant who was with the Weatherman from autumn 1969 through spring 1970, considered her one of the two top leaders of the organization, along with Bill Ayers.[21]"

"Dohrn went underground in early 1970, engaging in bombing activities."

Is this all you got?

Regurgitated talking points that have already been posted ad nauseum?

Oh, and lets not forget the "t*tty twisters" and bra strap snapping done by the junior high school boys. Guess what? We all survived!
It says a lot about you that you had to specify that it was "an angry black girl" who cut the girl's pony tail.

You couldn't have just referred to her as a "classmate" or "another girl?"

Or, there was the time Willard escorted a blind teacher right into a closed door.

Mitt Romney’s prep school classmates recall pranks, but also troubling incidents - The Washington Post

... What a surprise! Scratch these privileged little buttoned-down mama's boys, and you'll ALWAYS a bully lurking underneath.

These could be seen as wayward incidents from a youth spent seeking a path in life. Except psychologists tell us our basic nature is set by age five ( Any of us who have raised kids can attest to the truth of that).

These stories will resonate, because they illustrate a central truth about Romney's nature that only get exposed accidentally in bits and pieces when he lets his guard down- that he's got a bossy, sadistic, passive-aggressive streak a mile wide, and he takes it out on people who can't defend themselves, who he thinks are "below his station" in life.

No wonder Romney doesn't "relate" to normal people. He isn't one.
Wonderfully said Gurbie.

Dead ass spot on, every word you wrote. It's why plastic spastic Willard never gave his dog a second thought after he strapped it onto his roof of his station wagon.
