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.

How can Romney’s old pal Stu White tell the Washington Post that he has “long been bothered by the Lauber incident” — and then later admit to ABC News that he was “not present for the prankand “was not aware of it until this year when he was contacted by the Washington Post”?
Maybe he was and is normal.

Just the vindictive who haven't quite accepted their own warped reality.

Yes, they are exactly alike. I mean one makes 350K a year and the other makes 350K a week. One is a Mormon and the other is a christian. One experimented with drugs, and the other experimented with terrorizing poor children. One of them you know and the other, who knows...other than that they are just alike.

People do change, but obviously Romney has not. What he did to that kid was just plain cruel. There are pranks and then there are pranks, but when someone is being outnumbered and overpowered by bullies to the point of having tears in his eyes, that is verging on sadistuic. Romney has endorsed the Ryan plan that goes as far as eliminating "Meals on Wheels". This goes to show that Romney still lacks empathy for the less privileged and the underdog. I've always seen Romney as slimey and this latest piece of his history only further confirms my feelings about him.

That's why the Republican party, representing the interests of Wall Street, can somehow connect better to the common man and get him to vote against his own interests. I can start to see where Reagan Democrats come from. Atta girl!

Well, we already know far more about Romney than we do Obama.
What little we do know of Obama isn't very flattering to him at all. When things finally do trickle out, they're glossed over or completely ignored by his supporters. He can't even get made fun of on SNL even though he's easily the best material they'll ever have.

Sure, one year of tax returns from mittens and ten years from obama. Birfers desperately digging up dirt on Obama for four years and mitten's past is just now being explored. Your statement was true if the names were reversed.

This is spot on and anyone who says otherwise is delusional.

Birthers are long gone for the most part.
Tax returns? Who cares.
You've proved my point. Obama's dirt is being ignored, even to the point of making it sound like we know nothing at all of Romney as an attempt to somehow make it even.

Yes, when they say they don't know anything about Obama. What they mean to say is they have not been able to find any dirt that was true. After 3 years as President, they are still trying to find some dirt. Just not there.

However, this thread is not about Obama. It is about a scary teenager who seems to have gotten joy from terrorizing another boy. A coward who needed other teens to hold the boy down.

This isn't hazing because hazing is that rite of humilation that is inflicted during the aceptance into a special group like a fraternity or an elite military unit. If you can put up with it you've got the right stuff. If not you aren't one of us go away. Assaulting a person because you think he was gay isn't hazing becasue the person they attacked would not have been accepted into their little circle afterwards. The was in todays time iy is a plain and simple hate crime its too bad it wasn't backed up with criminal charges in the 1960s. Hate Criminal should be on Mitt Romney's C.V.
