Mitt Romney, draft-dodger

By Comrade Misfit

In the campaign for the presidency in 1992, there was no shortage of Republicans bleating that the Democratic candidate, Bill Clinton, was an immoral draft-dodger.

In 2012, the GOP candidate, Willard Romney, used several deferments to avoid having to serve in the Vietnam War.

The same war that the GOP was sooo upset that Clinton didn't serve in.

Worse, Romney was such chicken that he ducked out of an appearance on The View, fearing his reception by women who are not GOP drones. So he sent Wife Of, also known as Queen Ann, who stated that to Mormons serving as Mormon missionaries is the equivalent of serving in the armed forces:

[W]e find different ways of serving, and my five boys and my husband did serve missions, and did not serve in the military.

It's good to know that according to the Romney Worldview door-to-door proselytizing in France was the same as spending a year humping a rucksack and carrying an M-16 in the Mekong Delta.*
* Not that the son of a powerful politician would have done anything like that in the first place.
