John Lauber comments about Romney's bullying him in school...

Sometime in the mid-1990s, David Seed noticed a familiar face at the end of a bar at Chicago O’Hare International Airport.

“Hey, you’re John Lauber,” Seed recalled saying at the start of a brief conversation. Seed, also among those who witnessed the Romney-led incident, had gone on to a career as a teacher and principal. Now he had something to get off his chest.

“I’m sorry that I didn’t do more to help in the situation,” he said.

Lauber paused, then responded, “It was horrible.” He went on to explain how frightened he was during the incident, and acknowledged to Seed, “It’s something I have thought about a lot since then.”

Lauber died in 2004, according to his three sisters.

1. Mitt Romney has always been a punk and likely will always be a punk.

Like *, the sheen of religion won't cover up or disguise his true character.

8. These are the kinds of things kids are committing suicide over...

To me that is what makes this an even more horrific incident.

3. I'm betting that they'll now be a smear

campaign against the victim. Just watch.

4. Republican bullies.

 

It's the only move they have left, so you are probably right.

15. I dug into that forum that is the last place allowing homophobia

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2882218/posts

They say: the timing of this story is a setup beginning with Biden's remarks about gay marriage, Obama is worse because he was fed dog meat in Indonesia (hello? What about Romney's dog on the roof of the car?)

6. Limbaugh must think Romney is looking more like a real Republican today

Limbaugh is the very image of the Republican coward who bullies others to make himself feel good.

7. I don't believe he didn't remember. I'd remember something if I did that. It is

 

an extreme act to do and he is probably very embrassed.

9. Not to worry, Mittens has probably arranged to have the guy "baptized"

so he can apologize to him on Neptune (or wherever dead Mormons go) when he dies.

11. Mittens is very cruel. If there is a god and I am sure there is he'll get his justice.

13. doesn't his claim that he doesn't remember make it WORSE?

Was assaulting and terrifying a fellow student just a matter of routine for him?

Seriously--I think his claim about forgetting makes this story even worse. It's undeniable that the attack happened but it evidently didn't affect him one bit.

14. It was horrible for the victim, but Mitt can't even remember it. What's that tell you?
