And now, the inevitable non-apologetic apology.
“Back in high school I did some dumb things and if anybody was hurt by that or offended by that I apologize,” Romney told FOX radio host Brian Kilmeade Thursday. “If I did stupid things, I’m afraid I’ve got to say sorry for it.”
Romney, 65, noted he graduated from high school nearly five decades ago, and said, “I’m quite a different guy now.” He admitted “I participated in a lot of hijinks and pranks in high school and some of them might have gone too far, and I apologize.”
“I certainly don’t believe that I thought the fellow was homosexual,” Romney told Kilmeade. “That was the furthest thing from our minds back in the 1960s.” ...
Romney spokeswoman Andrea Saul told the Post that Romney had no recollection of the incidents in question, which she said “seem exaggerated,” and added that “Anyone who knows Mitt Romney knows that he doesn’t have a mean-spirited bone in his body.”
That's odd. He has "no recollection" of the incident, but at the same time can state with certainty that it had nothing to do with gay-bashing? How does that work?
