Topic is 100% mittens and his gay bashing bullying, raising Obama is reflecting to worm your way out of an impossible situation.

What Romney did would be considered gay bashing today and a criminal offense.

While most boys did so some mischief few organized a group as a hate mob and attacked an individual for the way he looked.

Romney, a mormon, and an outspoken anti-gay person may have a hidden agenda. Now that he's grown out of gay bashing he may concentrate his efforts on other groups like the poor, the working folks, and seniors.

Oh dear, now it turns out "the source" of the Washington Post story never witnessed the incident nor did it come to his attention until recently after the Washington Post contacted him.

"The Washington Post story reports: “I always enjoyed his pranks,” said Stu White, a popular friend of Romney’s who went on to a career as a public school teacher and has long been bothered by the Lauber incident.”

But ABC News, says: “White was not present for the prank, in which Romney is said to have forcefully cut a student’s long hair and was not aware of it until this year when he was contacted by the Washington Post.”

It's actually pretty funny that we can now call a preppy nerd like $Willard a "bully".

If he would've tried to pull his 'my sh*t doesn't stink' act at my high school, he'd probably still be taking all his nourishment thru a straw...

This is wasted energy, but...You didn't respond to what I said. You didn't say anything, really. "Speak for yourself?" None of us are speaking for ourselves. We're arguing about the motives of a dumbass high school prank Mitt Romney pulled in the 60's. You just want to argue, and obviously you haven't actually been reading any of my posts, or maybe just selectively reading them. I have said like 8 times that I'm not a right winger or a Romney supporter. I'm just not so far to the left that I can't see the need for fairness when it comes to these exaggerated, bogus hit stories. I posted basically the same thing on the "Obama did drugs" counter thread. Real mature about the Arkansas public schools thing, by the way. These political threads always dissolve into 8th grade name calling...People, these days...

And the family of the alleged "victim" has now come out and claimed this portrayal as incorrect:

"...now, the family of the purported victim is speaking up and slamming the story as a political ploy."

And yet, they don't deny that the incident happened. They only say that their brother would be furious that the story came out. Understandable from the family's perspective, but it does nothing to change the original story.
