Romney counters notion he bullied gay classmates



Published: Thu, May 10, 2012 @ 12:14 p.m.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Mitt Romney is countering the notion that he bullied high school classmates and insists he didn't know some were gay.

The Republican presidential candidate apologized today to anyone he may have offended by what he said were "hijinks and pranks during high school." His comments in a hastily arranged radio interview followed a Washington Post report today that he had held down classmate John Lauber and cut off his bleached blond hair. The Post suggested Lauber was bullied because he was gay.

The newspaper also reported that Romney shouted "atta girl" at a different student.

Separately, Romney told Fox News that the people involved didn't reveal they were gay until years later. Romney said he participated in many pranks and that some, in his words, "may have gone too far."

Said before, said again:
Republicans-
if you don't choose Mr. Newt Gingrich for the nominee, President Obama will be reelected, 100% guaranteed.
Mr. Gingrich is the Republicans ONLY opportunity in 2012.

That's because Barry Soetoro was born in Kenya and grew up there.

Billy_Bob,
The birth certificate produced by the president indicates he was born in Hawaii. However, the young Barry Soetoro did live in Jakarta where he enjoyed many meals of dog. So, the question would be if he bullied any Indonesians? Gay or otherwise. That being said, it's refreshing to see that Mitt had a regular high school experience where such pranks on all types of individuals are common. Most of us look back on those years, realized we did stupid things and are glad we matured. Quite frankly, I'm getting quite bored about all this bullying crap. Kids are very mean; nothing new there. Grow a pair and get on with it!

Mitt Romney is a vile creature. His slick used car salesman persona makes me ill. This isnt surprising at all, hes a very narrowminded fool.

It took 2 years for them to release the birth certificate. Look at it closely, it's obviously forged...
