Romney behavior was egregiousRecently The Forum awarded it’s “Leafy Spurge” to those who criticized Mitt Romney’s vicious actions toward a fellow student, dismissing what he did as a silly prank. The truth is, Romney targeted his victim and committed a physical assault because of his victim’s perceived sexual orientation. That’s far more egregious than an adolescent’s silly prank. In modern nomenclature, that’s a hate crime.
When confronted with testimony from eyewitnesses, Romney callously failed to remember the incident in question with smirky defiance. He’s neither admitted to the atrocity nor offered an apology for his malicious behavior.
That smacks of the character of the man the Republicans consider worthy of being president.
