November 2012—Bully Or Bulls**t?

Now isn’t this a coincidence? Within less than twelve hours from the announcement that Barack Obama has “evolved” into believing that gay marriage should be normalized, The Washington Post put out a hot news flash that Republican Mitt Romney may have hazed a fellow student--nearly a half century ago! The story takes up pages, and implies that Romney was a gay-basher.

Well, Mitt, that wasn’t a nice thing to do. Naughty, naughty. And if you didn’t like the kid’s bleached blond hair, what would you have done on the beaches of California during the Beach Boys era? Therefore, you are unqualified to be president of the United States. Never mind that the parents of the boy you gave a haircut deny that anything like that happened. Never mind that people who were supposedly part of the “gang” that accosted the boy say there never was such an incident to their knowledge. I refuse to listen to your childhood friend who said he "thought your pranks were funny" but was disturbed by the haircut. Of course he also said he wasn't present at the incident and hadn't heard about it. Hmmmm. You are a bully, plain and simple and you should immediately withdraw from the race. I’m willing to bet you’ve been forming posses to round up gays and cut their hair ever since.

The proof is that immediately after Obama sanctioned gay marriage, you showed your true colors by saying that you don’t approve of such marriages. See—you’re a homophobe as well as a bully. It’s more proof that you haven’t changed at all in forty-seven years since you were beating up on innocent bleached-blond boys. Worse yet, you are a secret hater. When you assaulted that poor kid, you didn’t even have the nerve to shout gay epithets. But it was so traumatizing that he did later come out.

It’s time that we recognize that the proper candidate for the presidency is our beloved Barack Obama. He didn’t do things like that when he was young. He waited until he was a little older, if you don’t count him eating Fido as a child. Now maybe Barack is overstating his credentials, but he is the one who acts as an adult, unlike you. At the age when you were practicing being a barber, Barack tells us in his own words that he tried drugs enthusiastically. See—you should have grown up, quit worrying about hair and started working on your adult drug habit.

Unlike that wuss Bill Clinton, Barack inhaled like a man. And he continued to do so as a college student and man about town traveling in Europe. He also realized that marijuana wouldn’t enhance his need to be an active adult, so he moved on to cocaine (and like a man, he told the tale in his book Dreams From My Father). Before departing for his more mature persona, Barack thanked his “choom gang” in their high school yearbooks (“chooming” is an Hawaiian expression for smoking the weed).

Mitt, where are the mentors in your life who so influenced your political and religious beliefs? Barack has them. There was his communist-homosexual guide, Frank Marshall Davis, who helped form Barack’s lifelong commitment to things which were not the daily diet of middle America. As he got closer to becoming a community-organizer extraordinaire, he formed friendships with Weather Underground leaders William Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn, who were proud of their accomplishment of blowing up “establishment” buildings and killing night watchmen. They even held his first political fundraiser at their house when he decided to be a real man and run for office. Did you, Mitt, ever do anything that bold as an adult?

And while you were attending church at that cult that promotes clean-living, solid families and voluntary help to your fellow man, Barack was going to a real church. He was so bound up in the Christian way that he attended the same church for twenty years, including being married by the pastor. Because of bullies like you, Mitt, Barack had to leave that church which preached black liberation theology and his favorite pastor, Jeremiah Wright just after being nominated for the presidency by the adult party—the Democrats. And God damn America.

Barack does admit that he pushed another kid around when he was young, but it was a girl (named Coretta), so that doesn’t really count. And besides, that was forty years ago, and therefore not nearly as bad as what you did forty-seven years ago. Mitt, sit down and review the last twenty years of your life and compare it to Barack Obama’s adult life, and you will see why you are not qualified to be president and he is. You are a bully, and he is, well, the president.

Additional Note: The New Republic posted a lengthy article positing that gay rights may very well be Obama’s most important accomplishment. The magazine recognizes that bank bailouts, government takeovers of corporations, crony socialism, and Obamacare may soon go the way of the passenger pigeon and the dodo, but the man (The Man?) will have gay rights to put on his list of world-changing accomplishments. Dubious honor? You decide.

NOW: Can we discuss the economy, PLEASE?

I think if the SSM issue becomes Obama's legacy, how he is thought of in the future will hinge on the following question: What happens if gay marriage becomes the law of the land - particularly by judicial fiat - and studies show that children adopted by same sex parents have a significantly higher incident of child abuse and or dysfunctional behavior?

Bonus question: Will PC allow us as a society to discuss it it without losing our jobs or becoming a pariah?

November! Why are you waiting so long to get here? What did I ever do to you?

Nice article LawHawk.

Patriot said...

LawHawk = RaCist. Don't you know you Are Not Allowed to question The Won? Anything....... ANYTHING harmful to him, even from his own autobiography, can be explained away like you did.

Poor little Barry pushed the girl because she questioned the fact of his commitment to the Black Nationalist cause, being he was in a private, exclusive prep school. Little Barry was just showing Black Pride and was beginning his fight against the racism that was to follow him throughout his life in a White patriarchal society. Barry stood up to a RACIST so he's exonerated for anything that would he would, could or should do that went against bourgeois society. He's a Civil Rights HERO!

Hawk
You are to nice in your addressing of bo.

In 2008, America elected as President an inexperienced man who spoke well but was neither prepared nor qualified to occupy the White House.

He dropped 15% points in approval just three days after inauguration, when his executive order on abortion and religious views became known to the public. His and his wife's racism has created more racial separation in this country than existed in the 60's. His failed policies have continued to accumulate to today.

His failure is therefore not surprising, yet there are those who refuse to acknowledge the obvious short comings of this president.

Lemmings will follow each other over a cliff, let us pray we are not headed for the cliff ourselves.

Jocelyn said...

Very entertaining article LawHawk. It's sad that the MSM had to dig so deep to get something against Mitt, and then have it slide right off him as what they reported wasn't substantial. Can't wait for November!

LawHawkRFD said...

K: Those are valid concerns. As I've mentioned before, my biggest concern is the left's utter disregard for freedom of religion, so I worry about what will happen the first time a pastor or rabbi refuses to perform a same sex marriage.

LawHawkRFD said...

Joel: I know what you mean. I'm like a kid waiting for Christmas morning. All excited about opening gifts, and at the same time worried that he won't get the one big gift he asked for.

LawHawkRFD said...

Patriot: You've seen the light! LOL

LawHawkRFD said...

Tehachapi Tom: At least now the public has seen some of his background and is likely to see a lot more in the coming months. He had no discernible record or beliefs that the public knew about in '08. That has changed, he's a mess, and the best his team can come up with to draw attention away from the real Obama is that Romney picked on another student forty-seven years ago. Silly attacks like this one will continue throughout the campaign, Romney will slough them off, talk about the economy, and Obama will continue to slip into irrelevance.

LawHawkRFD said...

Jocelyn: The desperation is really beginning to show. The Post article was front page plus two inside pages. They've completely lost it. One rule of yellow journalism is keep the story brief, and short on factual allegations which can be quickly refuted. They just went with an anecdotal story of a teenage Romney forty-seven years ago and are getting laughed at for their failure to produce a story that has any genuine meaning and which is rife with allegations which are unproven or unprovable. If this is the Obama campaign, I see a landslide for Romney in November.

Tam said...

I liked this article about how all criticisms (a.k.a. facts about his past and his character) of Dear Leader 4 years ago were mere distraction but now that he has an actual record, all he can offer are distractions.

http://news.investors.com/article/611227/201205111844/obama-launches-campaign-of-distraction.htm?p=full

And I liked the first comment: "It's so sad to see a great man like Barack Hussein Obama distracted by the distractions that are constantly distracting his distractions from the distraction of going on vacation."

Now, can we please talk about the economy?

T-Rav said...

I read yesterday that now the family of the "victim" has come out, saying that they never heard of this incident and slamming WaPo for trying to sensationalize the thing. Let's hope this embarrasses the newspaper into shutting up.

LawHawkRFD said...

Tam: There are going to have to be plenty of distractions or Obama might have to run on his record on the truly important issue--the economy. So far, Romney has been smart enough to wave off the distractions quickly and get back to that selfsame issue which Obama can't run on. I'm still recovering from finding out that Axelrod says people like me are "contract killers." LOL

Here's your clickable link to a very good article: Distractions.

LawHawkRFD said...

T-Rav: Yep. The whole thing is both anecdotal and silly. The man allegedly involved died a few years back, and his parents both deny knowing anything about any such incident and just want their son to be allowed to rest in peace. The Post is so deep in the tank for Obama that embarrassment and humiliation won't stop them from continuing to do this kind of amateur journalism.

tryanmax said...

T-Rav, as I followed the "Mitt Romney: Bully" story on radio yesterday, I reveled each time one of the claims was knocked down. It was marvelous, like dominoes in slow motion. Much better for the story to painfully fall apart over days than to come crashing down all at once. That drives it into the popular psyche.

Of course, not everyone on RWR was content simply to let the story collapse under its own weight. Ingraham tried to push Romney into the rubble by baiting her callers to weigh in on whether Romney should have issued his apology for nothing in particular. The predictable response from her lingering ABR audience was more than I could take.

LawHawkRFD said...

tryanmax: The less Romney and his handlers say about this story the better. The story is falling apart of its own weight and there are plenty of people to make fun of The Post without Romney having to dirty his hands with it. Bush did a good job of that sort of thing when he said "when I was young and foolish, I was young and foolish." The thrust of Romney's official response, if any, should be "yep, now let's talk about what we've done as adults."

Joel Farnham said...

LawHawk,

You just reminded me of a joke Reagan did on a reporter when asked, "Don't you accept any responsibility of the economy?" Reagan replied, "Yes, because for many years I was a Democrat. Next question."

LawHawkRFD said...

Joel: Let's hope Romney can develop the same kind of pointed sense of humor. He's good-natured, but he doesn't currently seem to be very good at witty repartee the way Reagan was.

K said...

Hawk:"I worry about what will happen the first time a pastor or rabbi refuses to perform a same sex marriage."

I didn't mention that because I find it difficult to believe that the government would do that - then again I wouldn't have believed Catholic hospitals would have to close because they'd be forced to hand out free contraceptives. So obviously it IS a valid concern.

What interesting times we live in.

Joel Farnham said...

LawHawk,

Have you seen this? The conservative was cut-off because he called out the media. This woman "bullys" the conservative.

Just the YouTube Video. What is hilarious is she bullies then cuts the guy off because he was getting on the media's case about the stupidity/distraction.

What would have been perfect is if the conservative guy had claimed Romney acted like a Democrat and then grew up and out of that phase of his life.

AndrewPrice said...

What I found so fascinating by this story was the full-court, coordinated press. The moment this story broke, a dozen bullying/hazing stories appeared instantly at all the news services and they all mentioned Romney. This very much shows that the MSM is indeed coordinating and is working to help Obama.

(Laughably, by the way, the Post actually mentioned that all the accusers did "lean Democratic" but they were sure that had nothing to do with their suddenly coming forward.)

In any event, it's gratifying that no one seems to care about this. This is yet another scandal the MSM is trying to push which just doesn't resonate with voters. No one cares what happened when Romney was a child and the fact Obama is trying to push this tells us how desperate they've become.

LawHawkRFD said...

K: In Canada, people laughed at the idea that the government would interfere in religion when they passed "human rights legislation" and their high court found gay marriage to be a fundamental right. Shortly thereafter, it started. Pastors are kicked out of their pulpits for teaching traditional doctrine, "human rights suits" abound, and the government merrily marches into churches to tell them which doctrine regarding homosexuality they can preach and which they can't. Pastors who resist can be jailed. Canada doesn't have a First Amendment, but so what? This administration routinely ignores the Constitution anyway, and enforcing Obamacare mandates against religious institutions is only the beginning.

LawHawkRFD said...

Joel: I hadn't seen that yet, but it doesn't surprise me. Desperation again. The left constantly lectures us about uncivilized behavior, usually while performing the type of act they are supposedly lecturing us about. And that link is a perfect example of how the left "distracts." Publish a silly non-story, wait for the reaction, then magnify the non-story by discussing how everyone is talking about it. The left is just plain puerile, and as a result, wish to relive their youthful triumphs and re-stage their youthful "tragedies" as if they are relevant to today and today's adults.

LawHawkRFD said...

Andrew: That's so true. I don't know if I'd go as far as to call it conspiracy as convenient coincidence. They all had "bullying" stories in their archives, just waiting for one of the gang to publish a story about the enemy of the day, and suddenly there were three-page stories and ten-minute segments MSM-wide. There wasn't enough time for them to have done the research or prepared the segments unless they were just waiting to hop on the bandwagon.

obiwan2009 said...

LawHawk, the only message I have been able to get from what they try to spin on Romney is that hmmm... the guy sounds more and more like me, and better in a few places. On the other hand, I don't know, maybe there's some code in the press that I am not getting. There's also a side of me that hopes for someone to pull a fraudulent story like the Rathergate incident in 2004, but then again, you decide if that's my cynical side talking.

On the bright side, hearing Romney's Red Sox comment really was the quote of the week for me. Yeah, I'm not a Red Sox fan like he is, but it was candid, and sure did strike my funnybone. And oh no, Romney just sounded like a normal person with that one!

tyranamax, regarding the MSM trying to hang Romney, please, that's pretty much denying the interesting truth called forgiving oneself of past shortcomings. It's not like I think about the time I called someone names in high school, much less I couldn't even tell you the pranks by name that I did as a teen/young adult off the top of my head, I move on, and I more than surely think that Romney has the common sense to move on over the course of 40 years.

LawHawkRFD said...

obiwan: I'm with you. I wasn't a physical bully, but I used my nasty wit to cut down defenseless people who were really just easy targets. I matured. Romney matured. Obama evolved (from what, I'm not entirely sure).

Individualist said...

Now Lawhawk

Don't we know that when he was learning at the Madrassa in Indonesia Barack Hessein Obama was on the forefront of asking the Imams there to acknowledge gay rights......

Wait!

tryanmax said...

Joel, Lawhawk, if you are curious but don't want to subject yourself to the harmful effects of the Sunday shows (dry mouth, insomnia, irritability, nervousness, shortness of breath, indigestion, mood swings, thoughts of suicide, blindness, memory loss, and various complications to pregnancy including birth defects) I've been doing a weekly recap on my blog. I have to say, LawHawk, you called it pretty much spot on, including the pun (or not). I expected more backpedaling than there turned out to be, but there was some.

LawHawkRFD said...

Indi: We mustn't be too harsh, now. After all, he's evolving. LOL

LawHawkRFD said...

tryanmax: I will check your blog more regularly now. Andrew does the Economist so we don't have to, I do The New Republic so you don't have to, and now we have you to do the Sunday morning shows for us so we don't have to. That's a large relief.

LawHawkRFD said...

A thought just occurred to me. Maybe Romney wasn't being a bully at all. Maybe he secretly wanted to be a hairdresser but was afraid to come out to his conservative friends. I think an appropriate press release to that effect might get back some of the more sympathetic gay marriage advocates. After all, society forced poor Mitt to deny his real urges, and he was not responsible for his own acts. Is anyone?

LawHawkRFD said...

Andrew: And the fact that I'm a conservative Republican has nothing to do with the fact that I think Obama's next job should be Deputy Dog Catcher for Cook County, Illinois.

Individualist said...

Lawhawk

When a species evolves is it not supposed to get more intelligent, faster, stronger or somehow better suited for its environment.

Why is it I get the feeling Obama is becoming more incompentent as he "evolves"....
