It was a lie?!?!? Do you have a link?

Even if this story is true, I'm still going to be voting for Romney, both in the TX primary and in the general election, because I don't care about pranks he may have pulled as a teenager 50 years ago. That said, I would love that to be posted for the anti-Romney posters to see.

That is what was first reported but like what happened in Iowa, those reports are being proved wrong. Also by virtue of the fact the MSM reported it doesn't make it so. Now more than EVER the saying, "Don't believe everything you read." applies --especially when it comes to the mainstream media news reports. Read it for entertainment value but don't believe it without verifying the facts and the sources.

I don't know how I'm going to laugh so hard once Paul is out of this race. Reading the Paulbots' posts on this forum has become a huge source of entertainment for me...and I suspect for many others as well.

Prank? Physically assaulting someone, publicly humiliating them and chopping off their hair is a prank? Bullying is NEVER a prank.

Yeah, we will all be waiting for that link that says the story is a lie... Five different people, SO FAR, have independently described the same event. That kinda makes it the truth.

If this story is true--and from the independent corroboration of so many people I believe that it is--I suspect we will start to see more of these stories come out. I think Romney's true character is a far cry from the squeaky-clean image his campaign wants the electorate to believe.

Wrong...

The List: Which presidential polls were most accurate? | Texas on the Potomac | a Chron.com blog

Rasmussen was tied for most accurate pollster in the polls immediately before the 2008 election.

That being said, Rasmussen does frequently seem to favor Republicans and was not very accurate in 2010. However, this election cycle they seem to have results fairly similar to the averages in a lot of the state by state polling (but not in national polling) - a lot more similar to the averages than PPP, which the liberals on the forum seem to view as being very accurate.
