Are our presidential candidates bullies? Should we care?

  • bully Yesterday, a Washington Post story revealed that when Mitt Romney was a child in the 1960s, he bullied students in his school — the exclusive Cranbrook School in Michigan — including an incident where he cut a young boy’s hair against his will.

Can we all agree that Mitt Romney and Obama made mistakes as kids, and moved beyond them? source
