At first glance it looks like hazing.

When it all boils down, there are two kinds of people in the world. Those that want to build others up and those that want to tear others down.

This article is just more evidence of Romney being the latter kind of person. If he had grown up poor, he might be in jail right now.


If you are dealing with a child being truly bullied, you need to understand the difference in a practical joke and bullying. They are not the same thing at all. One is done with malice and the intention of really destroying someone else to make yourself feel superior. The other is a prank that is just a joke...the sort of thing kids and even playful adults do. There is a world of difference.

This is a pathetic thread that shows how low certain people will go or have to go to discredit someone. It is stupid and meritless. The debts that someone will go to discredit a candidate make that person look less than intelligent.

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.
And Obama was a toking Muslim Communist...now what.

You guys are desperate. LOL

Barack's cocaine use is A-OK, but let Romney get out of line and watch out! We've got a liberal meltdown!

I would hate to see what stories my classmates would tell about me if I were running for president...I'm not a Romney supporter by any means but this article is just...stupid. So he made fun of other kids at school when he was 14; are you all the same people yall were when you were 14? How many people can honestly say that they never once made fun of another kid when they were in middle school? There are plenty of real issues to go after Romney for. This isn't one of them, and it isn't news.

True, but confirms that he's a D-bag.

Apparently you have never had anything like this done to you or a friend or family. You would most likely look at it different if you did. Quite a bit of difference in trying out a few lines of cocaine as a youth and by choice (romney) assaulting a person in a gang style attack.

Good thing the cowardly elitist punk ($Romney) didn't go to my high school.

Would've gotten his a*s kicked on a daily basis...
