    No it was not.

    I've seen various permutations of that over and over again here at DU.

    It's not true.

    Yes, there was a different culture. but what Romney did wasn't acceptable back then. And it is germane to the campaign today.

    It demonstrates a streak of cruelty and callousness toward others who are different from Romney. That is actually part of the narrative against him- that he can't empathize or understand people who don't live in his privileged gilt lined world. It's a prominent thread in the fabric of his life.

    We shouldn't just dismiss it or say that it's no more relevant than Obama smoking pot when he was a kid or eating dog when he was 8 and lived abroad.

    Mitt Romney was a thoughtless, cruel bully and he still is.
    LOL. It kind of defeats the accusation when they have to go back 50 years to find an example.

    Meanwhile Obama was a doper (and maybe still is, who knows) and a bully, but they don't think that's applicable.
