This is almost too hideous to believe. Then again, this is Mitt Romney we’re talking about:
… Mitt Romney did not attend every soldier’s funeral; there were at least two cases where he did not.
And in one of those cases, a Gold Star mother claims that, far from comforting, Romney left insensitive phone messages – messages that she calls “bullying” and her husband describes as “abusive.”
“I can’t believe you haven’t returned my call,” Romney said on one of the voice mail messages, according to Stephany Kern, speaking at her Westerly, Rhode Island home this past Saturday. “Here I am making a second call; I haven’t heard from you.”via Gold Star Mother: Romney Skipped Funeral, Left “Bullying” Messages – Talking Politics.
Well, there are no messages left, and Romney, through a spokesperson, denies the characterization.
But what could a Gold Star mom possibly have against the Governor to the point that she’d lie about an issue regarding her dead son? That doesn’t add up.
Chalk it up to Romney’s difficulty relating to people … to say the very least. Bizarre at best.
