    This sleaze bad is a self admitted terroristic BULLY. He's admitted to being a bully throughout his entire academic career. Why is he getting off with a generic half hearted apology. Zero Tolerance should be in play. John King is the first person say "out loud" that Romney is a Bully. How can the press blow the Martin/Zimmerman issue out of control and let this admission of guilt be ignored???

    This is ludicrous. I'm sure a lot of people did things in high school which they regret today.The issue in question occurred 47 years ago. There is no reason to believe there have been more recent incidents of this type. I'm amazed this even surfaced after so much time.

    POLITICS –  Bullying

    "PRANK"??!!
    It's BULLYing y'all!   Quit playing it down. Romney and the media blew an opportunity for a great teaching moment. It is not OK to hurt others and laugh it off as a 'natural' part of childhood...."kids just horsing around...boys will be boys".   

    Those kids grow up, continuing to bully in new ways  – as adults oblivious to others pain – living selfishly and in denial. Maybe a future member of the one %? A CEO?  A president?
    Where are our values....

    I wonder if CNN is going to talk about Mr. Romney`s charity work in prep school or the fact that at Bain Capitol he shut down the company when an employees child was kidnapped so everyone could help? The answer is no because it doesn`t fit your game plan. Don Lemon exposed your game plan to portray Romney as a bigot and racist. Why am I not suprised. This comment will never be posted because it is the truth which once again goes against CNN`s mission from the Obama campaign, the Whitehouse and media matters the three websites every employee at CNN probally has as their favorites.

    .. doing it the right way?? That doesn't even make sense unless Paw has beocme governor of Mass while everyone was looking away. What one governor does for HIS state cannot be compared to what another governor does for HIS state. Each state has its own constituencies and needs .. what's right for one is not right for another. This is just another example of why Paw is not ready for primetime .. another reason is that shooting poison arrows at someone's back when you can't even defend your words to their face is very unbecoming for someone who wants to be President. Just makes you want to see the person get a real good smackdown, whether you care for Romney or not. Paw should go back under his rock.
