Ashley Parker of the New York Times has a statement from the family of John Lauber, the man the Washington Post claimed Mitt Romney bullied in high school. She tweets:This was a coordinated hit on Romney, coming just one day after Obama announced he'd "evolved" on gay marriage. My guess is this story had been prepared long in advance and they were waiting for word from the White House as to the timing of the release.
And just like every other attack the left has launched on Romney, this one is backfiring (Obama Ate a Dog). A little more mining of Obama's first memoir revealed a story of him admitting to bullying a girl. If the left wants to play the campaign this way, we're going to fight fire with fire.
