Oh Lord, I see the Romney campaign hasn't gotten any better at this whole "connecting with the common folk" thing. Their first-pass response to the Romney bullying report:
Yes, that will help. Get everyone from Mitt's old, crazy-expensive prep school for rich people to come forth as character witnesses. Because that's the one thing the Mitt campaign was really lacking in: A bunch of wealthy, born-into-privilege people explaining to the common folks about what a ripping fine fellow that Mitt Romney really is, regardless of whatever nasty or creepy behavior you might previously have heard of. More of that, please.
I'm not sure the results are necessarily going to be to the Romney campaign's liking, although I'm sure they'll screen them as best they can. Here's fellow Cranbrook classmate Michael Barone, now at the American Enterprise Institute (because apparently this school is the training ground for children of the wealthy to become governors and/or obnoxious conservative think-tank assholes), giving a rousing endorsement of Mitt earlier this year:
"I have to say that I've always had trouble taking him seriously as a candidate because I have this memory of him as a 14 year-old boy, um, who was kind of a jerk, the way most 14 year-old boys are. Myself included."Truer words were never spoken, no doubt.
