In light of my bullying post from yesterday, this is why I don’t like Mitt Romney. The guy could be a humanitarian, philanthropist, work in homeless shelters or orphanages, walk little old ladies across the street, whatever, but when I read this story a few months ago: http://www.newyorker.com/online/blogs/closeread/2012/05/mitt-romney-bully.html, I was instantly turned off. I especially don’t like his response, specifically the part where he says, “You know, I don’t remember that particular incident [laughs].”
I’m sure you are fibbing about that, Mitt, just trying to CYOA for political reasons, and I’m sure you remember it quite well. Unless, of course, you bullied so many students that they are all a blur to you. But even if you really don’t remember this particular incident, you know who did? John Lauber, the person you bullied. According to his sister, it haunted him his entire life, up until he died of cancer in 2004. Mitt, you came from a wealthy political family, and you used your influence and power to bully—no, torture—another student. And you laugh about the incident now, saying you don’t recall it? Come on, man.
If you, the reader, didn’t read my post from yesterday, I suggest you do. Perhaps then you’ll understand why I would NEVER vote for Mitt Romney. I may or may not agree with him politically, but any person who bullies another person and laughs it off like it was nothing should NOT be a leader, ESPECIALLY the leader of the most powerful nation on the planet.
