Mitt Romney Picked on a Kid in High School – Obama Voted to Smother the Life Out of Live Babies

(Steady Health)

The Washington Post, a liberal rag that never investigated anything on the radical communist-mentored youth of Barack Obama, published a story today on Mitt Romney’s high school days. Apparently, Mitt picked on a kid once.
It was a horrific crime.
The Washington Post reported:

Mitt Romney returned from a three-week spring break in 1965 to resume his studies as a high school senior at the prestigious Cranbrook School. Back on the handsome campus, studded with Tudor brick buildings and manicured fields, he spotted something he thought did not belong at a school where the boys wore ties and carried briefcases. John Lauber, a soft-spoken new student one year behind Romney, was perpetually teased for his nonconformity and presumed homosexuality. Now he was walking around the all-boys school with bleached-blond hair that draped over one eye, and Romney wasn’t having it.
“He can’t look like that. That’s wrong. Just look at him!” an incensed Romney told Matthew Friedemann, his close friend in the Stevens Hall dorm, according to Friedemann’s recollection. Mitt, the teenaged son of Michigan Gov. George Romney, kept complaining about Lauber’s look, Friedemann recalled.

A few days later, Friedemann entered Stevens Hall off the school’s collegiate quad to find Romney marching out of his own room ahead of a prep school posse shouting about their plan to cut Lauber’s hair. Friedemann followed them to a nearby room where they came upon Lauber, tackled him and pinned him to the ground. As Lauber, his eyes filling with tears, screamed for help, Romney repeatedly clipped his hair with a pair of scissors.

The absolute horror!
Ace of Spades offers analysis.

Meanwhile, In September 2008 abortion survivor Gianna Jessen joined Born Alive Truth in an illuminating ad that attacked Barack Obama for voting to snuff the life out of newborn survivors of abortion:

Barack Obama voted 4 times to support infanticide.

Boy, that Mitt Romney sure is a horrible person, huh?

    So Romney put a kid in a headlock once, huh?

    C’mon — Obama ate one! Sheesh!

  • OxyCon

    Obama sucker punched a 7th grade kid in the face, giving him a bloody nose.

  • Patty

    Wow, Romney was a bully. Worse is definitely killing babies, of course.

    I realize the liberals are reaching far into Romney’s youth for hate mongering. And it is really bad when the left didn’t care to discuss Obama’s radicalism. But that was then and it does bother us but now we live in the presence at time where dirt flinging and attacks are setting the stage for a very sick campaign.

    Instead of focusing on adults and their views on this economy and national security, the left is petty and becoming nonsensical.

    Contraception, Abortions, Gay Marriage, social issues that are irrelevant in the Grand scheme of thing.

    Obama has put himself into every news headline, it is like they are picking things from the news and speaking about them, problem is not the seriousness of our nation blowing up before are eyes. And worst of all the Obama administration and the left are creating distractions that have nothing to do with Obama’s immoral and lack of leadership.

    They are cherry picking distractions because this is how the Radicals work.

  • Mitt r’Omni Merely Used Scissors to Cut a Kid’s hair; Obama Voted to Use Scissors to Kill Babies!

    There, fixed the headline for you.


  • George

    Oh my God. Is this all they have. I’m really starting to feel better about 2012.
    What was Obummer doing in highschool? Oh that’s right, the media doesn’t care because he is all about social justice don’t you know. A candidates past only matters if they have an R next to their name. Give me a break!

  • stuart

    And I have it on good authority that Romney, at age seven, stole cookies out of a cookie jar. Really do we want a cookie thief in the White House? Vote for Obama, the light worker*.

    *P.S. When they told me he was a “light worker” I didn’t realize they really meant a light-worker, as in, get up at nine, get breakfast, sign an executive order, then go golfing. A light worker indeed.

    We don’t know what nasty things Obama did in school because he’s sealed everything. And way to put things into perspective – strange what passes for cruelty these days, and what DOESN’T. Babies are people too.

  • mg4us

    The left is getting desperate.

    While Romney was cutting a kids hair, who knows what Obama was doing. . he was wee-weed-up and doing drugs. . hanging out with radicals

    Now that the Washington Post is talking High School. .lets see the school transcripts of both candidates

    At least hair cutting does rate to cutting defenseless babies in an abortion. .or worse, if they are born still living to allow them to die!

    But Obama does this for his daughters. . .

    In the meantime, the economy collapses, jobs dry up. . .

    They are making a BIG DEAL today that weekly unemployment clains dropped by 1000. . . still over 375,000!!! 1000 is a rounding error. .noise. .will be revised up later. . .

    Look around. . .less jobs, higher gas and food prices. . .sky high taxes coming in 2013!!

    Yeah, I figured Romney for a bad-boy thug who got into politics just in time to stay out of prison and get rich instead. I bet in ’65 he wore a black leather jacket and tight jeans, and chain-smoked unfiltered Camels, and slunk around the high school leering at young girls from beneath a lock of unruly long hair…well, maybe not the hair thing.

    Man. This changes everything.

    Sorry guys. I know I was one of the first ones to start pushing Romney earlier this year, but I had no idea he was hiding this dark secret.
    Of course I have to vote for Obama now.

    There are grown men over 50 walking around my office with pony tails. I know exactly how Romney felt. If this story is even true, that is. Sounds like his buddy Friedemann went liberal, and now he wants his 15 seconds of fame.

    I hope Rush Limbaugh reads this.
    The libs might want to back off Cranbrook.

  • Tim in Cali

    Obama admits to using coke in his youth…..making him a drug addict who advocates selling drugs to youth…two can play this game

  • olm

    You know, the school to which the staffer was chauferring the kids to when Conyers was in trouble for his inappropriate use of staff.

  • Patty

    I suppose I am going out on a limb, here. I won’t throw Granny off the cliff or under the bus.

    Babies AREN’T a punishment, The real crime is the murder of babies and the lack of punishing those who do.

    Thank God is around in my life, and unfortunately, He will be, too for those who have no conscious come judgment day.

    At least, some of us here have morals, it seems when a leader calls himself a Christian, believes in Abortions, Contraception for Catholic Church mandates and Gay Marriage, he has issues that just aren’t Christian. Hope he one day reflects on his decisions and one day regrets his statements.

    These are social issues and they have nothing to do with a President Job. That is my opinion and these things are distractions but we do know where Obama stands and this will be an issue for some come election day. In this respect Obama is typical politician.

  • valerie

    Oh, goody! Now that we have that one out of the way, the Washington Post can turn its investigative powers on Barack Obama, and we will finally get the opportunity to find out whether he lied about his use of cocaine on his application to take the bar in Illinois, or whether he ever even was licensed in the first place!

    Obama is a close personal friend and real estate partner with convicted felon Tony Rezko..making Obama RESPONSIBLE for the housing about it at this website…gateway pundit

    Notice how they describe the school?

    prestigious Cranbrook School. Back on the handsome campus, studded with Tudor brick buildings and manicured fields,

    Like they would ever describe Punahou this way.

    Trust me. I’ve been there. Did a job on campus for a month back in ’88. It’s just as high-falutin’ as Romney’s school.

  • mg4us

    If this is the worse they can dig up. . .cutting a boys hair. . oh boo hoo
    Romney didn’t hit him or beat him up. . .

    Unlike Obama who physically assaulted a plump dark skin gal. . . he scarred her emotionally for life. . .

    But then Obama is half the man a man could be. . .
    Though Slo Joe Biden swears he has a big stick. . .

    And Obama was such a poor student. . . some say a dunce. . . no wonder he can’t do math. . spending us into oblivion.

    WaPo. . enough of the distraction. . .Obama got beat bad Tuesday – – WI, WV, NC. . democrats are on to him as being worse than Jimmy Carter!

    It’s still the economy Stupid!

  • Sasja

    I wonder how long this story has been sitting on someone’s desk just waiting for what was deemed the right moment for publication.

    Romney, in 1965, supposedly cut some guy’s hair. Can’t recall very many guys sporting bleached blond hair draped over one eye back then who would not have been beat down. So cutting his hair; no big deal.

    We all know this is more outrageous than murdering the most innocent in, or out, of the womb. These people are so evil and those who support them are no less so.

    The kiss-Bammy-butt media once again tries to distract from the real issues and once again it will fail. We will have some fun ridiculing this attempt, but will continue to focus on what’s important. Perhaps they’ll eventually learn they are not going to be able to derail our efforts to rid our Republic of this Monster. Perhaps not.

  • Loral Orow

    I have a hard time with these idiotic reports. Obama allowing abortionists to kill the baby if it’s born alive….nothing wrong with that huh? Yeah, I’m happy to know Mitt Romney can get mad. I’ve only known him to be gentle and calm but sometimes mad is helpful!

    This is a very interesting hit job by the Washington Post and their friends in the Obama Administration and the DNC.

    I am a graduate of Cranbrook, class of 1953, a foster child who received a full boarding scholarship for his Junior and Senior years at Cranbrook [Fifth and Sixth Form.] Since Stevens Hall is mentioned, my first year was spent living in Stevens Hall and our resident Master was Ben Snyder, who was a very strict disciplinarian. We had a number of boys who were Jewish, catholic and from the Middle East [Christ Church Cranbrook is Episcopalian.] In my two years at this wonderful school which changed my life I never observed any discrimination of anyone on the basis of religion or race, and for that matter, the several boys who were somewhat effeminate and about whispers were stated.

    Was there teasing, absolutely yes, just what you would expect from teenage boys. I ended the teasing with a thorough beating beating of my oppressor in the boxing ring with gloves on and adult supervision. I cannot believe that the alleged Romney action took place in Steven’s Hall, because Ben Synder would have been on it in a “New York Minute.”

    Oh, and directly below Steven’s Hall is the Cranbrook Store as well as the barber shop which was operated by the incredible EV! P.S. It was not uncommon for Cranbrook to give full boarding scholarships to students

    my pulmonary doctor also graduated from Cranbrook on a full boarding scholarship, and he is of Middle East heritage. [Have the fourth stage of COPD, and just waiting!]

  • sandy

    While the media dutifully tries to destroy Romney for cutting a boys’s long blond hair —

    In Dreams of My Father Obama talked about routinely getting high. “Junkie. Pothead,” he wrote. “That’s where I’d been headed: the final, fatal role of the young would-be black man.” But, according to Obama, he only got high because he was contemplating deep matters: drugs could “push questions of who I was out of my mind.”

  • bigL

    #46 Charles- prayers and wishes for yr health. thx for the comment.

    I have an Idea. Lets have no candidate for the 2012 and just crown Obama in as the King.

  • Bob

    This is just another fabricated story to try to focus away from Obama’s dismal record on the economy, unemployment, out of control debt, and government overreach through czars and regulation. So they make up things to draw attention away form the real issues of this campaign


    The reason Romney can’t remember the incident is because it may not have ever happened. Here is what is coming out the next day:

    1) One of the men who accused Romney in this article is a member of Obama’s campaign and we are finding out he may have lied about this incident.

    2) Another of the so called accusers wasn’t even there (Stu White) and only learned about the so called incident when the reporter brought it up. The post has since changed their article to save face after this came out.

    3) The “victim” never talked about this with his family or anybody else and there are questions now if this ever really happened. The victim’s Sister said in a statement “If it (the event) did happen…” meaning that they didn’t even if it ever did, and “the portrayal of John is factually incorrect and we are aggrieved that he would be used to further a political agenda.” Most likely meaning that the victim wasn’t gay as has ben characterize by the post.

    4) Classmates that new Romney at that time even refute that Romney would have done something like this.

  • Alpha2Actual

    I graduated from Cranbrook in 1963, two years ahead of Romney. I don’t recall any interaction with him but I did have occasion to engage in conversation with his father who would have his hair cut at school. Ev, the school barber, was an institutional legend and ran his shop for as long as anyone could remember.

    Hazing of underclassmen by upperclassmen occurred, as it does in all boarding schools, but generally it was of a constructive nature correcting some misbehavior or social faux pas. I don’t recall any truly malicious incidents of bullying. Actually hazing at Cranbrook was quite tame compared to my experience during Officer Candidate School, Marine Corps.

    You should illustrate this photo with a live infant — perhaps the infant Obama. That photo you have there is fine for an abortion story, even if liberals will call it an “unviable tissue mass,” but here we’re talking about SMOTHERING ACTUAL INFANTS.

  • Gwenb

    Okay so lets see. Romney picked on a kid back in the day and put his crated dog on his car roof. The media and liberals go nuts on him.

    Obama was chain smoking, coke snorting, bullying little black girls, and eating dogs. The media and liberals praise him.

    Sick sad world.
