Creepy Young Mitt Romney Impersonated A Police Officer
When Mitt Romney was a college freshman, he told fellow residents of his Stanford University dormitory that he sometimes disguised himself as a police officer â a crime in many states, including Michigan and California, where he then lived. And he had the uniform on display as proof.
So recalls Robin Madden, who had also just arrived as a freshman, the startling incident began when Romney called him and two or three other residents into his room, saying, âCome up, I want to show you something.â When they entered Romneyâs room, âand laid out on his bed was a Michigan State Trooperâs uniform.â
Madden, a native Texan who graduated from Stanford in 1970 and went on to become a successful television producer and writer, has never forgotten that strange moment, which he has recounted to friends over the years as he observed his former classmateâs political ascent. The National Memo learned of the incident from a longtime Madden friend to whom he had mentioned it years ago.
Said Madden in a recent interview, âHe told us that he had gotten the uniform from his father,â George Romney, then the Governor of Michigan, whose security detail was staffed by uniformed troopers. âHe told us that he was using it to pull over drivers on the road. He also had a red flashing light that he would attach to the top of his white Rambler.â

Years ago, there was a guy in my town who was impersonating a police officer and pulling over women. Then raping and killing them. Just sayin.

There's probably alot of stuff that will come out about him. He just seems the type to have many skeletons and rotting corpses in his closet. Besides that however is the fact that every word out of his friggin mouth in a complete lie. That should be sufficient enough to prevent him from the Presidency but maybe that's the Pollyanna in me.

I'm not interested in hearing about every asinine thing Mittens did when he was young.
His downfall needs to be about his record and the fact that he's a flip flopping, soulless, out of touch empty cipher.

That doesn't seem to be going anywhere, R12.
The DNC went after Romney's Bain record and it totally flopped. Everyone from the media to Cory Booker came to Romney's defense.
And people know all about his lies as Governor of MA and that doesn't seem to be hurting him either.

Let's not go there - the Republicans will say two things
1). Why doesn't Obama run on his record?
2). There is increasing information that shows Obama used drugs extensively (and many would view that as perhaps more serious than this)
I can see the response to "Creepy Young Mitt Romney Impersonated a Police Officer" - "Creepy Middle Aged Obama Impersonated a President" followed by a bunch of pseudo-facts

R26. Romney has no core, no sense of humor, no ability to relate to others.
As a result, his humor and antics come from these so-called pranks that are either at the expense of others or some weird, strange thing he does where being this entitled douchebag, he probably expects others to laugh and find the humor too.
Instead, Romney comes off looking weird, creepy and unfunny--perhaps with this big grin on his face, but no one else is smiling.

No but he admitted he used drugs in his autobiography.
|by Anonymous||reply 32||06/07/2012|
Based on their relative ages, it is far more likely Mitt Romney has been a cocaine abuser than Obama. Cocaine was already a bad drug to be avoided when Obama came of age. When Romney was a young Boston professional, cocaine was considered a business aid and nobody of his age and class NOT EVEN A MORMON would have gone without partaking.

Add to that the fact that Bill Bain founded Bain Capital probably the no. 1 reason was to launder cocaine money from Colombia and Central America, and that Romney almost certainly knew this -hence his hesitation taking the job - it is almost impossible that Romney was not a cocaine addict throughout much of the Reagan years.

That Obama (or Bush or Clinton or anyone) used drugs is not nearly as big of a deal as anyone impersonating a police officer.
|by Anonymous||reply 36||06/07/2012|
Some young people experiment with drugs; and of course, many don't.
But unless it's Halloween or some theatrical event, hardly anyone dresses up and impersonates a police officer, which is just sort of taboo in our society. Dressing up like a cop is simply not done due to all the creepy, misfit, sociopath type of behavior it conjures up.
People may dress up as a lot of other professions as a joke, but police isn't one of them.

On the contrary R51, George W. Bush would never have done anything so weird and psychotic. Only a rapist or a murderer would do something like this in college.
Bush might have done the haircut thing, but nothing like this.

Is Romney the Zodiac killer? Think about it. Same kind of M.O. Dresses up as police, approaches kids having a good time. Shoots them. Same kind of bullying prank thing. After he returned from France he moved to Provo to finish at Brigham Young, but he knew the Bay Area from his time at Stanford. Now he's married and pinned down to a woman who preferred someone else. The sexual revolution has passed him by. It's not such a long commute.
|by Anonymous||reply 55||06/09/2012|
Think about it. The Bay Area murder stopped after he left Provo for Boston in 1971. There was maybe one in Tahoe and another in Santa Barbara later.

Plus the cryptograms, the Most Dangerous Game shit....all signs of an educated high status person.
"On September 27, 1969, Pacific Union College students Bryan Hartnell and Cecelia Shepard were picnicking at Lake Berryessa on a small island connected by a sand spit to Twin Oak Ridge. A man approached them wearing a black executioner's-type hood with clip-on sunglasses over the eye-holes and a bib-like device on his chest that had a white 3"x3" cross-circle symbol on it."
Ritual bullshit. Exactly what someone raised in a cult like the Mormons would be into. Symbols. Did the Sons of Dan have a symbol?
