Romney's Memory

Joe Klein: "I fear that I went too easy on Mitt Romney with regard to his high school bullying escapades. It's not the incident itself that troubles me -- though it was, obviously, outrageous and disgraceful -- so much as his current response: He doesn't remember it. This is patent nonsense. How could he not remember it? Obviously, he remembers it or he wouldn't have been so quick to issue his blanket apology yesterday for any and all hurt he may have caused at Cranbrook. And this transparent fudge once again raises questions about his character."

Andrew Sullivan: "I do not believe Romney has no memory of this. I believe he is lying. His absurd statement that he has no memory of the event but that he didn't target the boy for being gay is hilarious for its self-contradiction. A boy who routinely snickered 'Atta girl!' when one young gay kid in his class spoke up is not just bashing hippies. I went to an all boys high school in the 1970s. What Romney did was a gay-bashing."
