Use of deferments is not draft-dodging.
Use of FIVE deferments that were procured with political connections after demonstrating for the war and for the draft is.

And those of us who have served put Romney's draft dodging in a class of his own.

I understand why you don't understand.

Your statement is a lie and a slur born of pure liberal partisanship,
Romney protested for the Vietnam war and supported the draft.

Pictures posted; proved.

Romney then got a string of deferments. Fact. Posted. Proved.

These deferments- he (like all Mormons) was a "minister" and he got with the help of his father: his father, the governor. Like his father and his grandfather and like his five sons: not a one has served.

And like many on the right wing, tea bagger Romney (as someone who is now 65) says he was "frustrated" as he recalls being in France... not having the 'opportunity' to serve.....COUGH COUGH COUGH though of course he had to ask for these deferments and if he could carry and demonstrate for the war, he could have walked down to the recruiter's office and signed up or at least not taken the deferments and risked getting drafted like everyone else of age during the war.

Romney is the quintessential draft dodger, more so, even, than Rush Pimple Limpballs.

Madeline was rewarded with the position of Secretary of State after that.

For every rotten deed a Republican president has done I can also cite one done by a Democrat. Get over it.

“That is why a coalition of countries is holding the Iranian government accountable. And that is why the United States will do what we must to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon,” the president added.
Even though Obama said that he believes in peaceful resolution of the Iranian nuclear crisis, he also underscored that the time is not "unlimited." And if diplomacy doesn't succeed, the US “will do what we must to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon." The Nobel Peace Prize laureate didn't say the word "war" but his intentions — and the urging from Israel — are all too apparent.
The U.N. is a synonym for shytstirrers.

I think it's funny how a peacekeeper instigates so much violence.

Not "funny" funny, but hypocritical funny.

Hi Christine
If I can maybe add this sentence to you post:
Just because we MAY say something, does not mean that we SHOULD.
As civilized human beings, we should be able to voice differing opinions or make videos without fear of some rabid idiot trying to kill us for it.
