I see nothing about romneys 5 wars in your post. Just more vomit from the RWNJs.
There are NO Romney wars. How can there be Romney wars if he isn't president? He hasn't funded his own private army and invaded anyone has he? "Romney wars" are a lie-beral pipedream,a wishful lie,lie-beral speculation on LSD. Keep up the idiotic fear mongering. Thats what lie-beral do best. Lie. Never met a Lie-beral yet who wasn't a natural born liar. Must be in that defective lie-beral DNA. The lying Gene.

So you ignore romney's words? Of course you ignore the reality of his words. I guess you are more comfortable with the flip flops than reality.

how about someone name an educational children's program that's NOT on PBS?
yes it's not free. It cost $244 million a year. PBS can survive on their own. They don't need taxpayers borrowing money from China for it.
