  •  The answer to that is simple . . . (9+ / 0-)

    we don't hold people "responsible" for what they did as kids . . . we hold them responsible for what they do about it as adults.  We expect remorse to exhibit in corrected behavior.  Romney's problem is that he didn't stop being an abusive jerk, he just escalated it into other realms.

    Fake Left, Drive Right . . . not my idea of a Democrat . . .

      really the incident is rich with unintended sexual connotations
      in Romney's case and it is very significant the other five involved all have memories and regrets about the incident.

      Kudos to the diarist for opening a parallel story that confirms real flaws as an adult that Romney has. That he never dealt with or realized what he had done but went on to do similar things that were much more malignant in his adult, business life is a cautionary, ominous story.  Thanks for this diary, and some bravery in writing and publishing it.
