Mitt Romney: Campaign says gay teen bullying at prep school report 'exaggerated'

There are 421 comments on the news.nationalpost.com story from May 10, 2012, titled Mitt Romney: Campaign says gay teen bullying at prep school report 'exaggerated'. In it, news.nationalpost.com reports that:

As a high school senior at an elite all-boys boarding school, former governor Mitt Romney bullied a presumed gay teen, having his friends hold the boy down while he cut off his hair, the Washington Post reports. The incident was told to the newspaper independently by five students, one who said that Romney, the son of then-Michigan governor George Romney, had it out for a younger boy because of his long bleached-blond hair.

One day in 1965 Romney had his friends tackle the boy, named as the now-deceased John Lauber, while he repeatedly cut his hair with scissors. Lauber cried and repeatedly called for help during the incident, the report said.

“It happened very quickly, and to this day it troubles me,” Thomas Buford, a retired prosecutor, told the Washington Post.

Dog is very tasty, meat eaters are a strange bunch. You don't have to be "hungry enough" as they are good eating. Horse is eaten (and prized) and Europe, and (many) Americans are squeamish about eating rabbits.

Would that be your obama who is still trying to prosecute the same military and CIA personnel who were interrogating and risking their lives to find out where bin ladin was?

Would that be the same obama that just last year, was trying to court martial three navy SEALS who punched a terrorist leader they were apprehending in hostile territory?

Would that be the same obama who would not give our CIA/Military any time to study the intell we captured from bin ladin's compound? Can you say warning to his muslim freedom fighters?

Would that be the same obama who followed bush's plan for withdrawal from Iraq to the letter and then claimed it was his success?

Would that be the same obama who took pride as a senator in blocking the budget for our military while they were at war?

Would that be the same obama who dodged any military service by claiming he was barry sorento, an Indonesian national and then submitted one of the most blatant fraudulent selective service registration documents as barrack Hussein obama?

Would that be the same obama who supports any muslim brotherhood uprising?

Would that be the same obama who canceled and refused to hold a national day of prayer because the Christian service could offend other religions but holds a Ramadan celebration each and every year by inviting muslim leaders who absolutely hate this country to the white house?

Would that be the same obama who threw his face to the ground in reference to his muslim king in saudi arabia?

If that is the Obama you are talking about, then yes – He is a muslim and a POS.

You have to vote! If not then you are voting for obama. Too many of us have served in the military to defend your right to vote! I have seen Iraqi's walk for miles just to have the right to vote and risk their lives in the process! I am not a fan of Romney and he is not my choice for the GOP candidate. I really do not know what Romney will do as POTUS but I absolutely know what another obama term will look like so I will hold my nose and vote for Romney.

Excellent, since the race is neck and neck, then you will help ASSURE Obama's reelection. Keep up the good work.

Thousands of people have died to assure American ctizens the right to vote and you will be sitting home like a petulant child who wants more candy and if she can't have it, then tosses herself across the bed to weep in self pity. Shame on you.

You aren't worth those noble heroes' sacrifice.

ABSOLUTELY! Bush was a fool and the same people who owned him, own obama! Obama is about to get us involved in Syria and Iran. Do you agree with that? There is no reason why any of our soldiers are still in the middle east! I WISH our POS POTUS had kept his campaign promise of bringing our soldier home in his first year as POTUS. Obama is nothing more than an empty suit filled with lies, half-truths and incompetence.

The Obamaniac doesn't stand a chance of winning Arizona's electoral votes. I'll certainly vote, but it will be AGAINST the Marxist-Leninist-Stalinist Obamaniac.

You are full of crap.

You should try to update your crap more often.

PS: The US military isn't allowed to assault prisoners, if you served this country, it's something you would have known already.

Correct. Shooting them in the head 115 times with .50 ammunition is fine as is blowing a hole in them with a 120mm HEAT round, or slitting their throats with a bayonet. Just don't slap them too hard.

You know, you really need to listen more and talk less, then you would not prove to everyone just how much of a moron you really are. The SEALS apprehended a terrorist leader inside his area of operations or in hostile territory. He began to yell, kind of like when you take it in your ass, so they punched him to shut him up, kind of like your boyfriend does, only harder. This punch completely offended and outraged your POS POTUS, not the fact that this terrorist leader was responsible for the wounding and killing of US personnel and innocent civilians, the fact he was not asked kindly to escort the SEALS to a US compound and was treated too roughly. Obama and holder had these SEALS removed from combat operations and returned to the US for trial. Thank God word got out and your marxist heros were forced to drop all charges against these SEALS due to public outrage. Bareass, you are a lying POS and uphold the mission of DNC brilliantly. Keep up the good work, you posts convince me daily of just how evil the leftists really are!

Parasite: the US military isn't allowed to assault prisoners.

If you served this country, you would know this.

Stick to what you know: bringing your boyfriend to a climax as you and your powerful suction can.

PS: this 'story' is from 2009. The purpose of a court marshal is to determine whether or not members are guilty or not. Obama had not a thing to do with the prosecution of these SEALS outside of being the Commander in Chief.
