Putting the Romney "bullying" story into the right perspective

A couple of days ago I puzzled over how much people were paying attention to the Washington Post story about Mitt Romney's high school hijinks. Now, the excellent op-ed columnist for the New York Times, Charles M. Blow, sets me straight. He points out that how Romney responded to the story makes it yet another revelation of Romney's personality, and Romney's lack of perspective on how things are seen by different people. As Blow puts it, Romney blew not only an opportunity to act human but also to plainly declare that bullying is bad. Blow's commentary is worth a read.
