No Sacrifice too great...

Presidential hopeful Romney, like all Republican candidates, vigorously supported sending more of our loved ones to Iraq. During his recent "Ask Mitt Anything" tour in Bettendorf, Iowa he was asked: "Are any of your five sons currently serving in the United States military and if not, are any of them planning to support the war on terror by enlisting in the United States Military?" Romney's answer was: "We have a voluntary army in this country." "There are a variety of ways you can show your support for our soldiers. My sons are showing support by trying to get me elected as the President of the United States." “My son Josh bought a Winnebago and is driving across the State of Iowa to get me elected." Romney wants OUR loved ones to go, but not his? Driving a Winnebago is fighting the “war on terror”? Romney avoided serving his country in Vietnam during the 1960s. He sought and received deferments through his church as a Mormon "minister of religion" for the duration of his two and a half years of "missionary work" in France and also sought and received nearly three years of deferments for academic studies. Just what we need in the White House...another chicken-hawk patriot for whom no sacrifice is too great...as long as it’s ours and not his.

NCDP was showing how much of a coward Romney is today

by helping some real American heroes.

Democratic presidential candidates have kids in the service ... and a few of the lesser Republicans.

But it could be worse ... his kids could have endorsed Obama ...

Here's the video.

Romney said it with a straight face. I guess Iowa is a lot more dangerous than I thought!

If Romney was a pacifist

I wouldn't have such a problem with his comments...although what he said was pretty silly. What I have a problem with is someone who is a hawk advocating endless war...who conveniently dodged the war of his youth and whose sons are doing the same. Hypocrisy in its highest form.

Heck

Some of the Winnebagos I've seen look like they have better body armor than the stuff our soldiers have now. Maybe the Romneys can donate theirs.

I agree with Stan. This guy is a hypocrite of the worst kind - advocating for other people to fight the war, and equating his son's road trip around the Midwest to what real heroes are doing.

I am totally against the war. Totally. But I cannot abide someone devaluing the sacrifice of brave American soldiers like this. I hope that the Democratic candidates have the balls to call him on it.

Robin Hayes lied. Nobody died, but thousands of folks lost their jobs.
