    He got three college deferments and one religious deferment for a total of four.

    Point he registered for the draft.
    Point he requested deferment and they were granted.
    Point he was entered in the lottery right along with the rest of us after he no longer was granted deferment.

    Shoot I got 2 deferments before I enlisted.

    What were you doing during the “war”?

    Is it just me or is Romney ordering two tickets for himself and Ann to the French Open?

    Well good for you. So did I but having been raised on the water – my Pops was a fisherman and fished out of may port your homeport – I opted for the Army.

    So were you on board during the tour in the S China Sea? Did you travel the Panama Canal in 1969? If you did then we were in the republic of Panama at the same time since I was stationed at Ft Clayton then on my wat to the RVN.

    All that aside dude the fact remains that Romney followed the law in effect at the time unlike some here who hot footed it north of the border.

    Jeff, I assume the tank is going to the left. Why then is the flag wafting to the right?

    The difference is that Romney was a cheerleader for the war while being a chickenhawk about fighting. He was a cheerleader for later wars while never letting his sons enlist. Obama and Clinton both actively opposed the wars that they weren’t willing to fight in. Obama (being my age) was never subject to the draft, and pursued another way of supporting America.

    " He was a cheerleader for later wars while never letting his sons enlist"

    How do you know what went on in the Romney household? If the sons were of age then Mitt could not prevent them from enlistment if they so desired. AND we have a volunteer armed service so you have no point at all.

    We have an almost all volunteer armed services. Ten daays before his enlistment was up, my nephew was sent to Iraq for his third tour. You get out when they want you out. He is now 100% disabled.

    If the goal is a commentary on Romney’s speech in Newport News, Va. this week and how he felt he might use military influence, this was not Mr. Danziger’s best work. Tho the artwork has an unusual crispness to it.

    Hmmm…Danziger DRAWS A PICTURE of Romney to make him look like Dukakis, and the collective mind says “look…Romney looks like Dukakis!” The collective mind is a funny thing.

    This is Mitt blaming the President for the arbitrary cuts to the military budget — and the same amount from social services budget — that his fellow elephants agreed to.

    He earned his money. All inherited money went to his church. Doesn’t anyone listen anymore? Read everything not just main stream media and then think for yourself.
    Oh gosh, I forgot, the government doesn’t want you to do that!

    The general in charge of the failed F-22 project said, to paraphrase: “Of course they’re expensive, but if we didn’t intend to USE them, we wouldn’t buy them.” MItt is calling for a TREMENDOUS INCREASE in “military” spending. If he plans to buy them, WHO does he intend to use them on?


    It’s time for Americans to demand a reasonable REDUCTION in “defense” spending, especially on building up a bigger Navy, and “weapons systems”, we do NOT need, as we’re already many, many, times ahead of any potential “enemy”. Also, while some technology IS good, it should be noted that our great military “planners” are calling for fighters that ONLY have missiles, no guns. The Chinese air force can run them out of missiles by sheer numbers of aircraft they have, leaving those expensive weapons of ours, USELESS!


    It’s time to use more intelligence, and economy. Another case in point: a Hellfire missile costs $68,000, a bullet can do the same job in most cases, for $8!! Think about it.

    @Bruce4671

    They didn’t give me any deferments, I didn’t escape to a foreign land. Mittens did and is calling for more war and bigger military spending. We already spend too much on military and not enough on America’s infrastructure.


    Or as mittens one published, “Amercia”.
