    Romney is playing game,he remembers everything he did in high school. If it was about something good he'll scream:"YES I REMEMBER" since it is a bad thing so he does NOT remember. Please give me a break.However,bullying is very serious because it is a very negative act that can cause harm to the victim, as suicidal,so it is a crime.

    Once again, the main stream media fabricates a story to try harm a republican candidate who is running for office. these type stories end up hurting the main stream media more than the candidate. Luckily for a growing number of americans, they are finding alternatives to the main stream media and those alternatives are becoming more plentiful and reliable. The numbers, unlike the main stream media, don't lie.

    When you hold some one down against is will and forcibly cut their hair,and claims he is a good christian, I do not think you just forget this, unless you have a dark side.

    If Romney did bully in high school, and he probably did, that says very little about him. However, his response now does say a lot about him. In police interrogation training, one thing they are taught to look for to know if someone is lying is if they say, "I don't recall the incident." That means that they are lying. In addition, Romney brushed it off so lightly. If four other people recall the incident from high school and, at least one, said that it has haunted him all of his life, it must have been quite shocking. But Romney says, oh so casually, that well, if it happened, I would apologize. His tone said, "It's no big deal." It says a lot about his character when he brushed off something that has haunted someone else all his life. Sounds like a person who finds it easy to fire people and close down businesses and gains by doing so.

    Romney was only lightly vetted by his underfunded Republican oponents. Now Mitts undergoing the Heavy vetting process. I wouldn't be surprised if more embarrassing stories pop up.

    The so called "victim's" sister has actually disputed that the incident occurred as reported. So has one of the Named witnesses. Anything to divert. Attention from the economy. Please fact check and hold the Washington Post publicallu responsible.
