Mitt Romney’s assault on classmate is not a “harmless prank”
While the Seamus and Obama-eats-dog stories are silly, this story about Mitt Romney’s aggression towards a gay classmate is pretty serious.
If they turn out to be true, let us be clear here: these are not “harmless” pranks. Romney committed assault against a person—an action that required the use of force on Romney’s part.
But the bigger question here: has Romney outgrown that “prankster” who would use violence against non-conformists? Judging from his policy positions, he has not.
