Romney “justifies” sons’ decisions not to go to Iraq

Another example of how some prominent politicians shamelessly twist the truth about why they keep their own families out of wars. Yet they have no problem with sending other people’s sons and daughters to be cannon fodder. These glib, jelly-fish jerks make me nauseated… And I can’t understand what these jerks are doing already campaigning for the presidential elections with over a year and a half to go. Shouldn’t they be doing the job for which the taxpayers elected them in the first place? Why isn’t the American public questioning this farce? Obviously, all that these politicians really care about is getting elected while pandering and spewing inane logorrhea in the process. They don’t give a rat’s ass about the people or what’s good for their country. Don’t the people care about this blatant waste of their hard-earned money?

A Whole New Generation of Republican Chickenhawks! Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney on Wednesday defended his five sons’ decision not to enlist in the military, saying they’re showing their support for the country by “helping me get elected.”
