Who Is The Real Bully?

Print Friendly Version of this pagePrint Get a PDF version of this webpagePDF
You have heard about the hit piece The Washington Post published last week "reporting" that Mitt Romney had bullied someone nearly 50 years ago in prep school.

You have also likely heard that the family of John Lauber, who supposedly was bullied by Romney, has come out with a statement saying the Post's article is "factually incorrect."

The family of Lauber, who passed away from liver cancer in 2004, said this:
"The family of John Lauber is releasing a statement saying the portrayal of John is factually incorrect and we are aggrieved that he would be used to further a political agenda. There will be no more comments from the family."

John's sister also said, if John "were alive today, he would be furious."

It seems there is no end to which the press will go to advance the far left, secular agenda.

But have you heard about Newt Gringrich's former campaign adviser on MSNBC this past Sunday?

Rick Tyler, formerly with Newt, was on MSNBC's Martin Bashir show Sunday. Of course, Bashir was obsessed with advancing the "bullying" story and evidently felt he could lead Tyler along and in some way use him to re-affirm the hit piece on Romney.


Tyler didn't take the bait.

Instead he said, with cameras rolling, "I would consider things like Barack Obama bullying the Supreme Court, bullying EPA, bullying hundreds of property owners and business owners, bullying donors to the Romney campaign. That's what bullying is."

I have linked the story above, along with the video.

I would add that the President is also bullying Christian people of faith in regard to matters of conscience, and our most deeply held beliefs on the sanctity of life, marriage and the family.

The matter with the Supreme Court is particularly troubling, in that he is trying to fiddle with, and manipulate the highest court in the land---without restraint.

Remember this? Here's how it played out.

After a stunningly bad performance before the Court by Solicitor General Donald Verrilli, Jr., defending ObamaCare, the President tried to intimidate the Justices with public statements about how ”unprecedented” it would be for an “unelected group of people” to overturn a law passed by a “strong majority” in Congress. A month later, the White House claimed Medicare’s payment system would “freeze up” if the Court overturned the law. ”Medicare cannot turn on a dime,” claimed former administrator Don Berwick, Obama’s first Medicare chief. “I would not be surprised if there are delays and problems with payment flow.”

That is bullying in its highest form.

God help us.

Be Vigilant. Be Discerning. Be Prayerful. Be Active. Be Very Active. Be Blessed.


  1. You're taking the word of the family (who wasn't there) over the word of 5 participants? Wow. Seriously, it's pretty common for kids who are bullied to keep it from their parents.

    The biggest issue is not what Romney did in high school, it's that his first reaction is to say he can't remember it.

    I don't believe a normal person could forget an incident like this, so his statement that he doesn't remember it leads me to three troubling possibilities:

    1 - there were so many of these incidents that this one doesn't stand out

    or 2 - he's sociopathic and the victim's trauma just wasn't significant to him

    or 3 - he's lying through his teeth

    1. Good grief, the president states in his book how he bullied and shoved a young lady . He remembered it and we have never seen the media address it .

      You believe Romney is a sociopath , a constant bully, or a liar .

      Your obviously an idiot . Now whats your excuse ?

      Can't remember your an idiot

      Been an idiot so many times it is no big deal .

      Your a mentally ill idiot and we should not blame you for it ?

    2. Wow, I hit a nerve, huh? Whew! This one isn't going away. Do you really believe he wouldn't remember something like this?

      And, yes, I do believe he has sociopathic tendencies. I think anyone who led the leveraged buyouts of the late 80's had to have something to shield them from the guilt of taking a healthy company, bleeding it dry, and laying off all the people. It's a very inhumane way to make money.

  2. We knew that there would be a heavy-hitting attempt to find dirt on whomever the GOP nominated. What I find striking about this is that they haven't been able to find anything more to Romney's disadvantage than something that happened (if it did) 47 years ago when he was a teenager. If acting like a twit during adolescence disqualified everybody from office, there's be darn few candidates from either party.

    If that's the best they can do, then Romney must be pretty squeaky-clean.

  3. He certainly wouldn't remember if it didn't happen. The biggest thing is he can't remember!!! Are you serious? Do you remember every stupid thing you did in H.S.? I'll take the families word for it. Are they lying thru their teeth?
