Washington Post hit piece on a supposed Romney High School prank is falling apart

One of the “witnesses” used in the Washington Post hit piece seems to have thrown a wrench in the narrative. Stu White, a Romney friend, has this to say:

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.

Question that should be asked:

Why is it so easy to find Romney's classmates and not Obama's?

Already, several of Romney's classmates have been available for comment for this high school hair cutting incident. There was even a profile article on Romney last December, which quoted at least 5 or 6 of his classmates--with real names--from Harvard(I think it was The New York Times).

Yet, I've yet to read an article which includes any Obama classmates. From the time Obama campaigned and almost 4 years into his presidency, there has not been a single interview or article quoting or referencing even one Obama classmate.

Very bizarre!!!!

As someone who attended an all-girls private school in suburban NYC in the early 1960s, and who graduated the same year as Romney did in 1965, I can tell you that high school was a very different place back then. The WaPo hit piece on Romney is anachronistic (to say the least) and is, therefore, wrong. A thousand times wrong. And did I mention that it's also calculated, distorted, and vicious?

My guess is that the WaPo author, Jason Horowitz, hadn't even been born in 1965. As a consequence, he doesn't know that "bullying" wasn't in the academic lexicon back then -- except if one student literally beat up a classmate. It was sink or swim, especially in an all-boys school like the one Romney attended.

It's smart for the 65-year-old Romney (now a senior citizen) to say he's sorry for whatever harm he did -- mostly unwittingly and unintentionally -- during his high school years, nearly a half-century ago. Hey, people, how about all of us get together and issue a blanket apology for every dumb, hurtful thing we ever said and did as teenagers?

I take it as a measure of Romney-phobia on the part of the mainstream media that they invest time and money in this kind of absurdity. And, if it's not fear -- if it's just loathing -- fine. I don't care what the MSM thinks or wants. I have to place my bets on the American people -- they're all we've got now. We were all teenagers once. BUT WE ARE ADULT VOTERS NOW.

Obama vincendus est.

Apparently, the article itself was fairly positive for Romney. Many classmates stepped forward and said what a great guy he was.

But that's not the headline they ran with. It's not on the first page (that I read anyway). And it is about an event where the "victim" is no longer around? And Romney doesn't remember the incident (but apologized for, anyway), and the supposed witnesses were not actually witnesses.

Interesting... Sister and family of victim has no knowledge of the alleged attack. This story's legs are being kneecapped from all directions.

The tackiest thing about this is they used a defenseless dead guy to make up this story about. I think Obama's campaign is so far worse than McCain's was in 2008. He is digging a hole deeper and deeper. But I won't complain.
