Let’s put aside the laughable fact that the MSM has had to go back to 1965, when Romney was a teenager, to find something bad about him (or, more specifically, something bad about him and a putatively gay person). This ridiculous attack has naturally generated attacks against Obama and Biden, both of whom, either in memoirs or biographies, turn out to have been bullies when they were children. Not chronic bullies, but they were mean to other children.
This is insanely stupid, and can reflect badly only on the MSM and the general Democrat establishment. As Rhymes With Right says:
I work with kids every day.
At some point, virtually every single one of them will engage in some activity that can be defined as bullying.
That may be because of immaturity, peer pressure, or simply thoughtlessness.
Some continue their bullying behavior into adulthood, and some particularly warped individuals — like anti-bullying activist Dan Savage — even manage to find a way to justify their bullying as morally virtuous.
I distinctly (and with a great deal of discomfort) remember being a bully when I was in school. It probably stands out in my mind because I was most often a victim. Being a skinny, little, glasses-wearing bookworm was not a recipe for social success. When someone came along who was an even bigger target than I was, I gleefully joined in with my former tormenters. I honestly don’t know what I was thinking. Was it just a child’s natural instinct to pick on those weaker? Was I hoping to ingratiate myself with the power structure? The answer is lost in the heavy mists of time.
What I do know is the Greg nailed it: “At some point, virtually every single one of them [kids] will engage in some activity that can be defined as bullying. That may be because of immaturity, peer pressure, or simply thoughtlessness.”
Watching the Dems implode is proving to be more fun than I expected. I only hope ordinary voters figure out what’s going on, and throw the bums out.
