Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Romney's backstory is disassembling. Friend says Romney was like "Lord of the Flies".

Romney's classmates from Cranbook are not rushing to his defense.

The guy who introduced Mitt and Ann is passing on rushing to Romney's defense.

White, in an interview with ABC News, said that he is “still debating” whether he will help the campaign, remarking, “It’s been a long time since we’ve been pals.”

According to White, he knows of several other classmates that have also been approached by the campaign to counter the article. White declined to name the fellow classmates.

Romney often mentions White on the campaign trail as the friend who threw the party where Romney met his wife Ann, whom he has now been married to for more than 43 years.

One former classmate and old friend of Romney’s – who refused to be identified by name – said there are “a lot of guys” who went to Cranbrook who have “really negative memories” of Romney’s behavior in the dorms, behavior this classmate describes as “like Lord of the Flies.”

The classmate believes Romney is lying when he claims to not remember it.

“It makes these fellows very remorseful. For not to remember it? It doesn’t ring true. How could the fellow with the scissors forget it?” the former classmate said.





One of the things that I pointed out at the beginning of Romney's campaign that he didn't really have a lot of close friends, either from the past or in the Republican Party. Alot of Republicans are going to enjoy letting him strangle in the wind because he while he has been writing big checks to the Mormon Church he hasn't been writing checks to help get Congressman and Senators elected, and he hasn't been running around the past 4 years getting people elected.

3. Well Pawlenty is about to go on suicide watch.


They are going to have to keep all sharp edges away from him.

He could have been a contender, lol.

5. Given his behavior at Bain, he's gonna have a hard time discrediting this.

And that's the perfect pivot for Dems, when asked what they think of it. They weren't there, so they can't speak one or the other as to the truthfulness of the claims being made, but in light of his business behavior which also shows insensitivity and a supreme disregard for the well-being of others, blah blah...
