    When calling out the RW 'chickenhawk' Romney's of this country...

    ...the inevitable comeback from their RW sympathizers (and you can set a watch by it) is, "when did Obama serve?" or "when did Clinton serve?" or words to that effect.

    They completely miss the main point which is the hypocrisy of advocating war-hawkish positions yet not spending one minute in military service themselves (or going AWOL like W).

    They are either this stupid or purposefully trying to change the issue.
    Either way the RW in this country are bottom-feeders of the worst kind.

    3. Yup, Romney and his fell Republican George W. Bush evaded the draft.

    Obama and Clinton didn't.
    Hey dumbass............they did not have a draft when obama was around.....(or atlease of legal age) and so that is not going to work.
    Lets just paint some happy clouds over at the sunshine and lollipop land

    What war policies did Clinton and Obama not support? Clinton authorized bombing the shit out of East Europe. Obama has been using drone strikes all over Pakistan and Yemen, authorized a "surge" in Afghanistan, and even authorized the assissination of a US citizen.

    Neither of them wore white gloves during their Administrations, and to pretend otherwise just shows how foolish... oh wait, nevermind that's long been covered.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    Reading up on Romney's history, he was in college until 66' then went to France for Missionary work, where he was involved in a major car accident. When he returned in 68 he restarted college.

    Romney did receive some defferments but he was involved in the 69' Draft, at which point I guess the his birthday was not selected. The following year his birthday year was no longer in the draft pool.

    So Romney did partake in the draft. He did 4 student deferments, one religious (his missionary work), and actually participated in one drawing (despite his father being a presidential cabinet member).

    It's all political chaff. The Chosen One is loosing ground and is realistically looking to be Unseated come Nov. The lefts loyal useful idiots have received their marching orders to throw any and all garbage they can imagine at the RR campaign.
    The 21st century. The age of Smart phones and Stupid people.

    It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.
