Campaign rep.: Romney 'unfailingly kind' 03:20

Following the publication of a Washington Post article that reported that Mitt Romney bullied a vulnerable student in high school, the candidate responded by asserting that he doesn't remember the incident, but that he is sorry if he ever hurt anyone.

The campaign also distributed statements from two of Romney's former high school classmates, including one from John French, who said, "Mitt never had a malicious bone in his body."
On Starting Point this morning, Romney campaign adviser Kerry Healey reiterates French's claims, asserting that the candidate is "unfailingly kind," "deeply compassionate," and "deeply concerned about people's lives."
Healey defends Romney's inability to remember the incident and says that "bullying isn't something that [Romney] ever knowingly participated in."
