    for his presumption of being gay. Says it in the article. Why did you feel compelled to be an apologist for the main assailant of this young man?

    cheers,

    •  I'm not apologizing for anyone... (0+ / 0-)

      ...I just think we need to focus on the issues that we face in today's political climate and not on things like what Romney did a long time ago, as horrible as they were. Of course, it's always hard to know exactly where someone is coming from on the basis of one response to a posted diary.

        ou were dismissing it as just Romneys dislike of the guys hair style and ignoring in the article that the victim was constantly harassed for being gay in the eyes of his fellow students.

        Why did you feel the need to try and downplay it, and do so in contradiction of the fact that the article did indeed talk about how the victim was harnessed for seeming to be gay?

        cheers,

        •  Because of the voting booth. (0+ / 0-)

          We need to ensure that Obama is re-elected. To do this, we need to bring voters to our side. To do this, I think focusing on things like the incident in question will not help as much as keeping the focus on Romney's political philosophies and policies. And I don't think that we can effectively focus on both of these things because many of the voters in this country are, unfortunately, very one-track minded.

          That's pretty much it.

        •  Mitch appears very motivated to pick fights (0+ / 0-)

          with anyone in this thread who dares suggest there are more relevant issues regarding Romney to discuss. Or that anyone else may have done something unsavory in their past.

          Why is that?
