So I love stories with an explicit bullying element, as they always provide loads of confirming evidence.
So, Romney as a 17-year-old prep school kid coming in with his friends, holding down some child and cutting his hair off. Forgive me, if this run long, but to me, this shit is gold:
BO Stinkss will start us off:
And he’ll kick Obama’s little effeminate a** too!ansel12 remembers what a badass vigilante kid he was back in the day:
At his age I was an anti-bully force, to have come on to a scene like that would have required action from me, I would have introduced Romney to a conservative sheepdog type.blackdog is not clear on what bullying is:
When I got my first job back in 1974, I received a letter in the mail from the employer. It explained that before I showed up for work I had to have a haircut, and proper attire. The employer explained that they expected a certain standard of appearance and behavior. That was the requirement for $2.15 per hour...............and a job. Funny I never felt bullied?dfwgator is pissed the media is forcing him to defend Romney:
These bastards are going to force us to rally around Mitt, and that sucks.redpoll knows everything happening now is orchestrated:
It’s all scripted. Biden’s remarks, Obama’s “reversal” of opinion, now this. All scripted. I expect more.dennisw laments how back in the day, bullying was not only awesome, it helped people to behave!
The difference between now and 50 years ago is that 50 years ago the kids who were bullied were tough enough to take it and maybe strike back. No way was this John Lauber traumatized by having his hair cut by some boys. He may have even adjusted his attitude for the betterRedMonqey also laments how soft we are now.
Calling this prank “bullying” just shows how the feminization has changed America. This wouldn't rank a 1 out of 1 to 10, on the bully scale, 10 being an absolute beat down, requiring hospitalization and arrest. I've had worse “bullying” by my brothers and friends just by horseplaying around. When we got hurt and whined about it, we were told to "Stop being such a Pu@@y" and get over it. God help America if we ever get into another WW2. We are all Frenchmen now....Vigilanteman has fond memories of beating up hippies:
FWIW, an military buddy of mine grew up on the Wind River Reservation near Riverton, Wyoming. A popular sport for male bonding of the local cowboys and Indians was to go into town on a Saturday night, lasso longhairs and give them the sheep sheer treatment. Sometimes it was fueled by alcohol, sometimes it was just for fun. The local law enforcement people were very worried one night when a gang of motorcycle hippies from Denver threatened to ride up one summer night and teach the whole town a lesson. The local cowboys and Indians were waiting for them and a fight ensured. No injuries beyond a few scratches and bruises, but the final outcome was one broken storefront window and a motorcycle gang of newly minted short-haired hippies limping out of town southbound on highway #789 to the raucous singing of a combined cowboy and Indian chorus. Shearing hippies was evidently a fairly popular pass time in that era, especially in Rocky Mountain ranching towns.citizen somehow decides this was a lie, and moves on:
This so-called incident has been debunked. Shown to be nothing more than a screed built of fabrication, exaggeration, innuendo and political skulduggery. This is only the beginning. During the summer and fall, as Obama’s re-elect numbers continue to be dismal, as I believe they will, no lie against Romney and other Republicans will go untold.a fool in paradise lists all the made up crap the media isn't reporting about Obama.
Barack Obama had drug fuled sexual encounter with a man and the media is silent. Barack Obama called patriotic Americans “teabaggers” as a homophobic slur and the media is silent. Identity politics only matters when you serve The Party. The Occupant of the White House associated with a known traitor and terrorist and the media said “big whoop”. The Occupant of the White House sat in Jeremiah Wright’s church for 20 years and the media said “big whoop”. I don’t give a fig about this “controversy”. The Media needs to grow up.Sarah Barracuda has a new go-to "argument":
And Obama eats puppies..guess its worse being a fag hater then someone who eats our precious petsYep, just yell "Dog eating" and then drop the mike - no one can top that!
apillar also hits it:
Obama was eating Fido in Indonesia while worshiping Allah at the local Mosque. I'll take some American High School Hijink anyday over that.Scotswife, in contrast relies on an old standby:
why doesn’t Obama react when Jill Stanek testifies about a downs syndrome baby left to die? Is it because the little ones are beneath his contempt?muawiyah doesn't know what dramaturgy is, and I think believes Romney is gay:
Doesn't matter. Homosexuals, when they're not homosexualizing do a lot of pretend whining and crying. They are all into dramaturgy ~ real and imaginary ~ Right now they have been given a mission to prove that Mitt is not gay and that he did not create gay marriage.Sirius Lee hates Romney so much, he turns his outrage machine on him!
Or it's genuine psychopathy. It's all there. The Bullying, the selective memory/denial, refusal or inability to admit error, the shadenfreude...the guy is a disaster for the GOP. He is to the GOP what Obama is to the DNC - a total arrogant jack@$s fluster cluck on a power trip. America is xcrewed.
