    CNN: quote, "I have never in my life had a more powerful experience than that spiritual moment when the spirit of Christ testified to me that the Book of Mormon is true,” Larry Echo Hawk told the audience." If Mr. Romney speaks with the elegance of a theologian -at Liberty University- then _why_ is he a mormon in the first place? Since they believe -according to him- exactly as the Scriptural evangelical believe, what promotes him to find solace in a mormon faith? This is a paint job. He finds comfort using the evangelical vote, quite simply...put.....

    If Romney "doesn't remember" instigating a vicious assault on student suspected of being gay but doesn't deny it either does that mean that there were many such "pranks" and he doesn't remember this particular one?

    "none of us are the sum total of our worst moments"

        hmmm, after reading another story about Romney in high school, my opinion may be wrong.
        sounds like a bully incident if the story is true, guess will never know.

          Sounds like OBIMBO SNORTING COCAINE as an adult sounds true.

          If you have to go back 50 YEARS for something as petty as an exaggerated bullyiing incident that is getting DESPERATE.

    The high school story about Romney is stupid, and shows how stupid the Demo reporters and CNN are. The real bullies is Oboma, CNN and the other TV networks orther than FOX. Thank God for FOX, the grown up station for grown ups to watch.

    It doesn't matter. He was wrong no matter what it was. No one should ever be treated like that in school no matter who they are or might be. Many times those with excess tend to belittle those around them just to find something to do. I know I would not be that way just to fit in.

    I know what it is like to be harassed in school and it is not right EVER. He has a long way to go to make up for this and I don't mean just throwing money at it to make it go away. He needs to make sure that those involved and the rest of America know and accept that he has changed.

    It doesn't matter if he was a prankster or a bully. What he did was wrong and stuff like that should never happen at a school. I put up with students like that when I went to school and took some of them a long time to finally realize that I was a worthwhile human being.

    He has a long way to go to make up for what he did and I don't mean just throwing money at it either.

    Lol, that quote doesn't fly in the face of the initial account, and when in the Hell was Breitbart worth ANY attention. It's also resonating, because Romney has done a terrible job of handling the matter.
