Romney served his country when called

Paul Ryan stated yesterday that Romney served his country when called by leading the Olympic committee. Ryan forgot to mention that Romney was too chicken to serve in Vietnam. I hope the families of the 58,000 Americans killed in SE Asia will remember.

Romney is a Chicken-Hawk.

He favours war but he would never put himself in the line of fire although he is willing to send soldiers to their deaths in capricious and illegal wars.

Romney is a hypocrite

Mitt Romney was a strong supporter of the Vietnam War in the mid-1960s, going so far as to counter demonstrate at an anti-war demonstration. Mitt picketed against the demonstrators at an anti-Vietnam war demonstration. Mitt Romney loved Vietnam draft he purposefully avoided He's so clean cut.
He is a low life scumbag!!

Willard Was born In 1947.

By '65, he was the right age to serve his country (in an undeclared and illegal war, as enumerated by the Constitution).
That was about the time when President Paul was serving in the best fashion, as an Air Force doctor, stitching up the boys who were forced to fight in the 'Grand Chessboard'.
Of course, Willard was perhaps incapable of either serving, or COMPREHENDING, as he was busy doing the recruiting for his Corporate Church, which always demands fresh donations (they like to call it 'tithing') from unsuspecting pagans.
Did the NEOCON RYAN really state that the Romulan 'did his duty to country', because he was the CEO of the SLC OLYMPICS?

I heard on the MSM that the Brits are offering the beanbag thingies that people used to sit on for the London Olympics up for sale...at $200 (FEDSCRIP), and the folding chairs that the 'olympic officials' used to sit on, while 'presiding', at $300 (fedscrip).
Yes, YOU TOO can 'service your 'country' by buying old, sat-upon chairs, that the asses of the masses have been made comfortable with.

While Dr. Paul was on a mission for his fellow men, back in Vietnam, Willard was on 'mission for god' (and the eventual profits from the SLC Olympics).
Perhaps Ryan and Romney could auction off the chairs THEY have sat upon, just to help the NEXT cause of 'patriotism' (raising money for the RNC). The scent of a 'holy' ass or a 'neocon' ass, I suspect, is much the same. BOTH are extremely smelly and unpleasant.

Hope this isn't too graphic, for those who post Mormon/Neocon stuff here.


Romney served his "pocket of Banksters" and of his "own" and he

still is....and not of his country.

He served a 2 year mission

He served a 2 year mission for his church. If I lived then and had the choice, I wouldn't have gone either.

that isn't an excuse--

many Mormon 'boys' couldn't get missionary deferments, but Romney could and did--

it would be less offensive if Romney had not protested against the protesters when he was a student in California--

there are plenty of Mormon men in their 60s whose bodies and minds are crippled from Viet Nam! Shame on them, if they vote for Romney!

It is obvious by the choices Romney has made that he believes in war, but only if he (or his family) does not have to fight. The man is a whited sepulchre full of dead men's bones--

Matthew 23:27--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

Right on

We have plenty of legitamate concerns with Romney. Not going to risk your Life for a meaningless sherade is not one of them.

Also it is not the Libertarian way to preach self sacrifice as some responses to ryno.t1985 suggest.

True but

Romney as we all know is one who is willing to send thousands of young men and women into these damned wars that have no bearing on our safety here at home and thusly is a murdering hypocrite!

" In Thee O Lord do I put my trust " ~ Psalm 31:1~

ah, I didn't read your response before . . .

posting above--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

Yeah but we're not asking to be Commander In Chief

And that I find extremely hypocritical.

If men are good, you don't need government; if men are evil or ambivalent, you don't dare have one.

Yea, must have been hard to

Yea, must have been hard to go to France.

Honestly though, had he gone to somewhere like Africa for humanitarian purposes that would have reflected a hell of alot better on him. Of course, he didnt do that, he practically took a vacation in France.

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.

In the LDS church, you don't

In the LDS church, you don't choose to go where they send you. You are called to serve in a certain district by the Church.

This is true.

well of course

but you are not trying to send more kids to war, Romney is

Excellent point. Romney will

Excellent point.

Romney will not win this one, he has doggedly pursued the presidency as an attempt to outdo "daddy", IMO.

I wouldn't have gone either

I wouldn't have gone either and I would encourage my sons if there was a draft, over one of these trumped up wars, to hide or leave the country. Romney though is willing to let others go fight in the wars he promotes.

merciful heavens--

these people could get up and start speaking in nonsensical rhymes, and nobody would respond!

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

you are counting on boomers to be not totally oblivious?


Yeah I think this has to do

Yeah I think this has to do with a generational thing. I remember my grandfather who was from the Greatest Generation and served in WWII was anti-war. The Boomers have known nothing but conflict their whole lives.
