Washington Post Romney Hit Piece Implodes

JT For Political Reform 2012/05/12 15:46:45

Today’s unconscionable Washington Post story, which implied
without evidence that Mitt Romney was a homophobic bully to one John
Lauber back in his high school days five decades ago, has totally
imploded.

It was irresponsible of the Post to run the hit piece in the
first place, especially given its obvious bias; to retract a critical
phrase and replace it without noting the retraction is just as bad.




But it gets worse.
Tonight, Christine Lauber, John Lauber’s sister, said that she didn’t
know anything about the bullying incident. More importantly, she said
that the story had factual inaccuracies. Betsy Lauber, another of John’s
sisters, told ABC News, “The family of John Lauber is releasing a
statement saying the portrayal of John is factually incorrect and we are
aggrieved that he would be used to further a political agenda. There
will be no more comments from the family.” Said Christine, “If he were
alive today, he would be furious [about the story].” Jason Horowitz, the
reporter on the Post story, did speak to both sisters and quoted them in the story – but apparently still botched the facts.

But Lauber, at least according to his obituary in the South Bend Tribune,
led an incredibly full life. He graduated from Vanderbilt, became a
member of the British Horse Society, had his seaman papers, was a
licensed mortician in three states and head chef at the Russian River
Resort in California, and even served as a civilian contractor to the
troops in Iraq. This does not sound like someone crippled by a
supposedly crucial incident back in high school.

    President Obama and his administration have to be the most heartless group of frauds to ever sit in the White House. This is criminal to indicate any such thing as this fraudulent piece of trash news. Anyone that voted for this clown should be totally ashamed of themselves. Reminds me of the Duke incident years ago, blame white people for things that never happened. Lies and deception are all this administration can achieve, they sure as hell aren't doing a damn thing for this country but making it a laughing stock to the rest of the world. Go ahead lefties, vote for this moron fraud and further destroy a great nation. It's time to vote in people that will help this nation not tear it down with stupidity. VOTE OUT THE FRAUD IN NOVEMBER.

    And yet people are still talking about the "bully" Romney is. This was, from the start, a non-story but the libs sure tried to make hay out of it.

    This story comes out at the same time as the President's "evolution" on gay marriage.

    Nothing in the media or politics is happenstance.

    Not the first "hit piece" of the silly season, and be assured it will not be the last. Shoddy journalism, or out-and-out fabrication, within the various media leaves much to be desired.
