CNN, the employer of trashy women, I've had a few of your slutty news reporters, they are tramps who like to suck a mean one, but I won't identify them. Hint, they were all former employees of your communist news agency. How about a topic of President Obama's family members patriotic acts. BTW, nobody sent their sons or daughters off to war. The government sent them to conflicts that need to be resolved. But, the government would rather send soldiers to the region, rather than saturation bomb the place. I can assure you that relentless bombing of the region would be more effective than what is currently taking place. Besides, our economy would improve just from the production of massive amounts of military explosive ordnance believe it or not. If you can identify a CNN reporter, kick their ass. They are traitors to the nation. They also specialize in performing crimes against nature.

Who got us into Vietnam-Truman
Who escalated the war to it's higest point-JFK and LBJ
Who got us out of vietnam-Nixon and final withdrawl under Ford.

Iread this story and it reeks of liberal elitism.
Do you really think that many if any kids of rich liberals joined the armed forces after 9/11? If you do you really need to up your meds.
Since Vietnam the US military has been an all volunteer force and for whatever reason people join that is of their choosing. I grew up in a nice middle class family and went to college but then screwed around to much and bailed at 21 I decided to join the military as it provided me with the structure and discipline I needed in my life. I spent 9 years of service to my country and got as much out of them as they got from me. I earned my college degree which helped me get to where I am today. My wife and I are comfortable middle class and have two children neither one of which went to Iraq and Afgahnistan. If they chose to do so I would support them but they decided to go to college. So does that make them and my wife and I terrible people? According to the slimest of excuses no, only because I am not rich like Romney. But if you truly believe what the individual is writting then it does. It is also easy to say this about Romney as his kids are old enough so it convieiently shields President Obama, all I saw in this article was an agenda and anyone with a brain would be able to figure that out.
PS
Check out how Tricky Bill got out of service in Vietnam!!!
Have a nice day!

We are Sunshine Patriots!!

We were born multimillionaires.

We are special and unique.

War is for the politically unconnected and for those born of modest origins to fight.

We are neither. We are scions!! We are Special and unique!

S*cks to be an average and/or a loser.

We are better than you. We know what's best for you.

We look at you with nothing but contempt. Still,you support our ambitions and shower us with admiration.

We enjoy watching YOU PEOPLE struggle as we coast through life with all of the privileges afforded us.

We are America's Royalty!!

My boys are too good and special to spend any length of their lives in a war zone.

We are men of style and elegance.

We are men of wealth and taste.

We are the Romney's!

We are American Royalty!!

Two words that libs hate.....Volunteer Army....they cannot believe that young people today are brave enough to do what they were too chickensh't to do...serve and protect...there is no higher calling.

Libs recall with shame and embarrassment, their burning of their draft cards, and singing protest songs. And their pony tails.

By spending my draft dodging years in France,I believe that qualifies me to be Commander in Chief.

Btw,men such as myself were not born to spend our lives on the battle front. Men such as myself are chosen by God to send the sons and daughters of others off to fight our battles.

We are special and unique. We are the fortunate sons!

Did Clinton start that war?

Was he against the war?

Mitt wasn't.

A picture taken on May 20, 1966, clearly shows a 19-year old Romney, whose father was at the time Michigan’s governor, standing with pro-war University president Wallace Sterling. To the young Romney, anti-war activists hoping to end the draft — and the senseless deaths of nearly 60,000 young American men — should not sit-in, they should sit down and shut up in preparation for potential deployment.

Mitt is among three generations of Romneys — including his father, former Michigan Gov. George Romney, and five sons — who were of military age during armed conflicts but did not serve.
In seeking 4 deferments, Romney did in fact take actions to remove himself from the draft. In 1970, Romney eventually became eligible but by that point, the United States had begun reducing the number of troops in Vietnam ...

He FOR the war but didn't serve.

Big difference.

The "chickenhawk" teabaggers want to start wars but let "others" do the fighting.

You need to talk to the military about that sir! They can't stand Obama and his disrespect for our country and the military.

President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney may be nearly tied among voters as a whole, but among military members, the former Massachusetts governor is obliterating the president, 66 percent to 26 percent, according to a new poll from the Military Times.

You didn't finish this sentence - In 1970, Romney eventually became eligible but by that point, the United States had begun reducing the number of troops in Vietnam ...

The rest of the sentence indicates he reported for the draft and received a number, but his number was not drawn.

Unlike the 60's, todays military is all voluntary. So only those that choose the military as a career path join, no one is forced in like they were with the draft.

the military is a different demographic. Young military folks don't always pay attention to the news and know who is really looking out for them.

At ease, private.

Some of you got it. Some of you don't. Mitts kids are fee to join or not join as they see fit. Military Service isn't a pre requisite to holding public office.

And really- no one givesashit if the Romney kids served or not. I don't.
