[Whoopi: As first lady, if you get the job, itís going to entail a lot of things, and one of those things is going to be talking to the mothers whose children are coming home in bags, you know, from wars. Now, I know ó I believe that your religion doesnít allow you to go fight.

Ann: No, thatís not correct. We have many, many members of our faith that are serving in armed services.

Whoopi: Okay, um, I say that because when I read about your husband, what I had read, and maybe you can correct this is that the reason that he didnít serve in Vietnam was because it was against the religion. Thatís what I read.

Ann: No, thatís not correct. He was serving his mission and you know my five sons have also served missions. None served in the military.]

Seems Whoopi forgot Barack and Michelle neither served in the military nor as missionaries, but then again, she never asked them. Nice try, Whoop. FAIL.

And when Obama was young there wasn't a war being fought. That's the difference. Romney is just another draft dodging chicken hawk. When the country needed him he ran off to France of all places! What kind of missionary work was he doing in France? Sounds like just another privileged rich kid story to me.

Uh, wow. You have an interesting view of voluntary service. From what you wrote it seems to you there's a difference between enlisting during a time of war and enlisting during times of peace. I'm not sure all the veterans of peace time would be thrilled to know you think so little of their service to our country.
I don't think you really meant it that way. Maybe you just said that to justify the hypocrisy in criticizing Romney and not Obama for neither being in the military.

As for missionary work, you do realize it's not just third world countries that need missionaries, right? Or, is it just that only missionary work done in third world countries counts and missionary work in places not so third world in your opinion is more like a vacation for rich people? Again, I'm not sure the millions of missionaries that have volunteered years of their lives to helping others in less desperate areas of the world would appreciate knowing how little you value their efforts.

So, just so we're clear on this: street organizing in Chicago is commendable, but missionary work in France is for the "privileged". Serving your country in the military during a time of war is brave, but doing so during times of peace, not so much.

Got it.

I'm not talking about enlisting, I'm talking about dodging the draft via a deferment. There wasn't a draft in progress when Obama was of age. And don't turn my words around and say I don't appreciate anyone's service to our country. My husband served 8 years and I've lived on an Army base.

I also understand missionary work and helping others. Romney was in France to knock on doors and spread the words of the Mormons, a religion they know very little about and have very little interest in. Don't confuse what he did over there with helping others because in the end it was just an excuse to keep his behind out of harms way.

Approximately 80Ė90% of 19-year-old mormon men serve a mission (right after high school) I suppose that this tradition started in the hopes that one day a member of their church would be able to avoid the draft.

Face it, your a moron.

I'm a moron? I just see it as Romney putting his religion before his country. While other families, with lesser means, were sending their sons and daughters to war Romney was playing door to door salesman for the Mormon religion. Would Romney put his religion before his country as president?

When has Romney ever given anyone a reason to question that in his capacity as a successful business owner or governor he put his religion in front of his job? Never. This is just class warfare at it's finest.

Nah, he's just repeating the current Obama talking points. Obama said that Romnesia is curable. But only by voting in Obama for another 4 years AND the largest tax increase in the history of the country.

Blue seems to forget that it was SIX years ago when the progressives took controll of the House and Senate, that everything started going down hill.
And that Obama, who took charge after two years of his party controlling congress, just continued the downward spiral.
Four more years?
I hope Not!

oops!, I went off topic,.....

Whoopi Goldberg knows nothing about "class".
Ann Romney has more class than Whoopi will ever know.
Whoopi is a loud mouth classless beotch that knows nothing about "class".
She is just on T-V because of her small acting roll in Roots.
I find it hard to believe anyone even cares what that pig say's.

Sounds a lot like what Obama's Jobs czar Jeffery Immelt is doing with G.E.
The BIG differnce would be that G.E. recieved Billions of our tax dollars to send jobs overseas, and close plants here.
I wonder if the person that connects Romney with Bain Capital is aware that Romney left Bain in 2008?
I think probably not,... since that same person still blames Bush for everything,

Didn't serve because he didn't qualify as a US citizen. Otherwise, I'm SURE he would have volunteered.

Sure. UH HUH.

sometimes you know that the truth is Sensata is being outsourced to China fact! So someone to judge that as being clueless and nuts needs to look it up!Before you post or judge some ones post know what your talking about!Look up (Bain capital and entities under different names)Don't be scared of the truth it may set you free!So if you believe that Romney has a plan for you think of Bush in the 8yrs that got us here!(Clinton surplus)(Bush deficit)(Obama 4yrs )=republican filabuster = no help for middle class in the poor. just what they wanted!!
