The Washington Post’s Extreme Bias & Its Lies About Mitt Romney

Yesterday the Washington Post released an overly extensive story that claimed Mitt Romney was a bully 50 years ago. Many are calling this a strategically timed hit piece to follow Obama’s coming out for gay marriage.

The piece attempts credibility with four named sources recollecting an event that took place when when Romney was in high school. Romney allegedly attacked a homosexual boy hair and cut his hair.

Romney’s campaign spokeswoman Andrea Saul defended Romney, saying “anyone who knows Mitt Romney knows that he doesn’t have a mean-spirited bone in his body. The stories of fifty years ago seem exaggerated and off base and Governor Romney has no memory of participating in these incidents.”

Romney appeared on Fox News on Thursday and said he didn’t remember the incident but apologized for pranks he helped orchestrate that he said “might have gone too far.” 

Then, last night on ABC News, Betsy Lauber, one of John Lauber’s sisters, supporting Romney’s claims.

“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,” she said. “If he were alive today, he would be furious.”

Betsy Lauber’s claims are a contradiction of WaPo’s failed hit piece. This is the second contradiction of the story, the first being a correction they had to make for misquoting one of the so-called witnesses (who as it turns out did not witness the incident) to make the story more dramatic.

While the Washington Post is desperately trying hard to smear Mitt Romney they have seem to forgotten the current President’s bad behavior as a child.

As Breitbart’s Big Journalismblog pointed out today, in “Dreams From My Father” Obama describes a scenario in his past about a black girl in his class that he bullied.

“Her name was Coretta and before my arrival she had been the only black girl in our grade. She was plump and dark and didn’t seem to have many friends.”

Obama goes onto explain that they were playing on the playground on school when students begin to tease her, Obama then yelled at her multiple times and shoved the girl down.

It seems as if the media also skipped over the part of Obama’s book where he openly admitted he did drugs, including cocaine.

Although the Washington Post’s attempt to make Mitt Romney look like a homophobic bully was pathetically creative, within 24 hours most WaPo’s story has been proven to be a lie.

The extreme bias of WaPo and the publication’s amnesia of the activities Obama’s admittedly participated in as a young adult, proves their publication is unreliable.

Furthermore, it makes the Obama campaign’s recent claims that “the media,” and the Washington Post specifically, is “trying to make it harder, not easier” for Obama to get reelected look even more bogus than they did before.

    Interesting post. So, basically Obama gets a free pass for bullying, taunting and physically assaulting a fat girl. Of course the war on fat people is an obsession with Obama and his ilk. Trying to get gays to re-consider their lifestyles is a hate crime. Guilting fat people into changing their ways is “patriotic.”

      it should have been ankle irons raehtr than platinum parachutes with the level of corrupt practices the previous govt performed, not that the current one has changed anything much for the benefit of the people who want create jobs, and help rebuild our once great little nation and get us back into the top 20 OECD nations again.Why is it Holden that you assume right wingers hate science and knowledge? Is it a blanket hatred? Or is it just a hatred of corrupted scientists and their phoney results?Are you basing your knowledge on the bible belt of America and some of those people having a belief in Creationism, and categorising them as right wingers? Would you consider a muslim capitalist a right winger? Their holy book describes embryology and cell structures and all manner of biological science. Is someone who believes in evolution too intelligent to be a right winger? Are all those capitalists who developed every advancement e.g. medicines, treatments, computers, software, fertilisers, efficiency enhancing or problem solving devices etc. and took them to market for the betterment of mankind whilst earning a buck for their efforts, are they all left wingers because they believed in a piece of science or knowledge, and hence they were obviously too bright to be Right winger creationist Neanderthals?
