    Check on Sharpton on Wikipedia - I had no idea he was involved in some of the stuff he has been. Just the Bernard Goetz thing is enough for me to hate him, but it goes way beyond that.

    And Romney's running mate is John Kerry.. he needed to find someone that was less of a flip flopper.

    That got me to thinking.

    John Kerry was hammered despite the fact he actually served in Vietnam.

    How will Republicans treat Romney, a guy that got deferments before he dropped out of school and then got more deferments so he could go teach Mormonism in France.

    I can't wait for the spin on this one.

    Where's Jerome Corsi? When will his next best seller be on the bookshelves? Perhaps it will be titled: Unfit for Hypocrisy: The Coming Right Wing Mental Meltdown.

    Our last 3 presidents have had their service or lack of it questioned and criticized. Hopefully, that isn't an indication of a trend (people preferring non-military presidents).

    Before them, we hadn't had a president without military service since FDR in WW II (ironically, we had presidents with no military service during both world wars).

    :upeyes:12smile - I call BS. That's not even funny as a joke and it is not presented as one either. Prove it or retract please.

    John Kerry was hammered for inflating his service with demonstrably false acts of "heroism," and for comparing our troops to the hordes of Genghis Khan in a congressional hearing.

    Sounds like you're the one that's into spinning. :upeyes:

    Clearly, even an April Fool's joke can generate a lively discussion here... :supergrin:

    Jerome Corsi? Quick, name the other Navy man who was/is such a worthless POS that more than 100 fellow officers and enlisted men are willing to sign a letter calling him out for the POS that he is.

    I personally find Mittens to be an utterly worthless RINO, but Flintypoo, do you really want someone to start comparing Mitten's 1960s mission in France with Lord Obama's 1980s missions in Indonesia and Pockystahn? Really?

    Obama has allowed Al Sharpton to be his running mate.

    Obama could have acted Presidential by asking for everyone to wait for the grand jury decision before rushing to judgment but no, he sided with Sharpton.

    The American people trusted Obama would be our President representing the entire nation but that has sadly not happened.
