In their pathetic attempt to shill for President Obama’s re-election campaign, it appears that the editors of The Washington Post forgot something:

In their attempt to attack Romney as a mean person (I don’t remember similar stories about how nasty John Kerry could be in treating people like peons coming from the MSM in 2004), the Washington Post forgot that there are real people affected (via Hot Air headlines thingy)
(ABC News) Betsy Lauber, one of John Lauber’s three sisters, spoke with ABC News Tuesday night regarding the accuracy of the story.
“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,” she said.
We’re awaiting the in-depth story from the Washington Post on Obama’s days growing up. Perhaps something about his college transcripts. But, then, this is the same media who weren’t particularly interested in a young Obama snorting a Class I drug, cocaine, also referred to as “a felony.”
In their zeal to paint the younger Mr Romney as a mean ol’ bully, the editors of the Post failed to note that the younger Mr Obama admitted to bullying as a kid himself, which, as Karen pointed out, was worse, since Mr Obama bullied a girl.
It’s almost as if President Obama’s re-election campaign — an organization which includes The Washington Post — is trying to throw things out (or up?) there, to see if anything will stick.
It won’t be long now before we’re seeing more, “Psst, did you know that Mitt Romney is a Mormon?” stories.
