Viet-Nam Era Romney---The Seeds of a Hypocrite

Last edited Sun Jul 15, 2012, 06:48 AM - Edit history (1)

Not serving in Viet-Nam (or Southeast Asia) during that conflict is not something that deserves condemnation.

Serving in Viet-Nam (or Southeast Asia) during that conflict does deserve to be honored.

However, to be in favor of that conflict when you were of age to fight and seeking deferments (while able bodied) to avoid that conflict does deserve condemnation as the height of hypocrisy.

Mitt Romney (like Cheney, Rumsfeld and Bush) deserve to be called out for being the jingoistic hypocrites that they are. Mitt Romney supported that war in college while others dissented. He had that right. But when it came time to put "his money where his mouth was" he showed himself to be the chicken hawk he truly is. He hid behind his religion as a Mormon missionary. The poor little rich kid avoided service while he supported the war where others died (or were maimed). To add insult to injury, he performed his missionary service by attempting to convert the French to be Mormons. Yeh, he really had it tough preaching in Paris. I wonder how many Parisians he converted to Mormonism.

What a scam artist.
