Did Barack Obama impersonate police officer as college student?

Original post made by Barney B Street on Jun 7, 2012

Ummm, no, not Obama, the other guy.

Local news, former Stanford student had state police uniform, used it to impersonate police officer.

From Web Link

"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 ' a crime in many states, including Michigan and California, where he then lived. And he had the uniform on display as proof.

Said Madden in a recent interview, 'He told us that he had gotten the uniform from his father,' George Romney, then the Governor of Michigan, whose security detail was staffed by uniformed troopers. 'He 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.'

In Madden's recollection, confirmed by his wife Susan, who also attended Stanford during those years, 'we thought it was all pretty weird. We all thought, 'Wow, that's pretty creepy.'"

Tis the season for this sort of stuff to be coming out of the woodwork. The typical model is to have it on the shelf, until needed, e.g. the victory of Scott Walker in MI.

Now we have allegations that Romney impersonated a police officer.
Very serious allegations.
These need to be turned over to the authorities for investigation
Right now it looks like there is compelling evidence for Romney's criminal activities.

Huh? What driver would mistake a white Rambler for a cop car? Or any color Rambler?
