If you are wondering whether the press plans to fully vet Mitt Romney in a manner it failed to do four years ago with then-Sen. Barack Obama, have a look at this article from the Washington Post.
It’s goes into extraordinary detail about Mitt Romney’s days as a prankster in prep school. The author seems to have dug up every kid who might have known Romney – including almost literally dug up one who has died.
That person was a homosexual youth to whom Romney, according to the testimony of his classmates, was abusive.
The event is worth knowing about, though it doesn’t seem to fit with the rest of the portrait, which is of a mischievous youth also capable of plenty of good deeds. But of course, the egregious incident, which Romney says he doesn’t remember, is the centerpiece of the tale.
I’m just wondering. Does anybody remember an article of similar detail on the life of Obama from 2008? I don’t.
