The day after President Obama made his announcement that he supports gay marriage, an announcement accompanied by no perceptible change in policy, Obama received $70 million in donations from the gay community.
The Washington Post, apparently coincidentally…uh-huh, came out with a hit piece on Mitt Romney from 1965, WHEN HE WAS IN HIGH SCHOOL and they are trying to connect the prank to gay bias.
What happened is this – Romney and some of his friends might have cut a student’s lock of hair in a bullying incident. The victim might have been bullied at other times and he might have grown up to be gay. He is deceased so we can’t ask him. From there the details get murky.
The Washington Post quoted an eyewitness who said he wasn’t there at the time and did not actually see the episode. They also quoted participants in the incident, all but one of whom are Democrats. The other is an Independent who once worked on a campaign for a Republican.
The victim’s sister didn’t know anything but could tell from looking at Romney’s photo that he was a bully according to some in the lamestream. This quote appears to be completely inaccurate because the Lauber family doesn’t want Mr. Lauber’s name dragged through the mud for political expediency.
Christine Lauber, the older sister of Romney’s classmate, John Lauber, claims she has no knowledge of the bullying incident involving her brother, who passed away from liver cancer in 2004. When ABC News showed Christine the story, she became agitated and somewhat emotional.
“Even if it did happen, John probably wouldn’t have said anything,” she said. “If he were still alive today, he would be furious [about the story].” the Blaze
To add even more absurdity to the article, the Washington Post cites that the bullied student later became a homosexual insinuating that Romney was supposed to somehow know this. As one who grew up in the sixties, I can tell you that no one discussed homosexuality freely in the sixties and most never even thought about it.
We all have things in our past that were character slips but not necessarily indicative of who we would grow up to be because we learn from our mistakes. I’m certainly not the person I was in 12th grade and would hope most people are not.
The media won’t discuss how Romney saved peoples’ lives as an adult on more than one occasion and they won’t discuss his missionary work to bring balance. They will only talk about a couple of negative childhood incidents which might be untrue while ignoring Obama’s mistakes as a youth
Washington Times: In Dreams From My Father, President Obama talked about bullying an unpopular girl in school –
In his own auto-biography, “Dreams From My Father,” he talks about a classmate by the name of “Coretta” who is picked on for her weight and who he later shoves. (Book audio above H/T Badger Pundit):
“I’m not her boyfriend!” I shouted. I ran up to Coretta and gave her a slight shove; she staggered back and looked up at me, but still said nothing. “Leave me alone!” I shouted again. And suddenly Coretta was running, faster and faster, until she disappeared from sight. Appreciative laughs rose around me. Then the bell rang, and the teachers appeared to round us back to class.
Greg Pollowitz at National Review cites another passage of the book where Obama’s mean streak comes out:
I went out and ordered Dreams from My Father on Kindle and discovered young Barack’s horrific treatment of his fellow college student Tim.
The future president wrote that Tim wasn’t a “conscious brother.” He “talked like Beaver Cleaver” and had a white girlfriend who, Obama guessed, listened to “country music.” What’s worse, Obama thought Tim’s real name should be “Tom.” As in Uncle….Keep reading…
Obama admits to doing cocaine and getting drunk among other things. No one seems to care. I’m not saying they should care but simply pointing out the hypocrisy and the propaganda element in the way these two stories are being treated by the lamestream. The dog story was more of the same.
In fact none of these nonsensical stories have anything to do with the issues. It isn’t journalism when the reporters are in cahoots with the President and work as his campaign workers.
If they have to go back to Prep school in 1965 to find something on Romney, they are desperate. Nothing about the economy, nothing about jobs and why aren’t we hearing about Obamacare?
I have an explosive Romney exposé here –
