    He went to France for three years but "longed" to be in Vietnam? I wonder how many guys sitting in Vietnam were longing to be in a place like France?

    It's a little insulting to have someone stand in front of you and tell you how they wish they had gone to the fight, when you know they did everything that they could to avoid it. If you didn't go, you didn't go; it's as simple as that.

    If he is still "longing" to stand by his countrymen and fight, I know of this great little spot nestled away in the Hindu-Kush...

    Oh dear, here we go again.

    If having a draft deferment is a fault worthy of not being in office, we'd have to clear out half of Washington, including the women because they had an automatic "Uterine Out".

    Lots of people choose not to be in the military. Most in fact. Even those that do end up in the military will tell you, being there does not make you a hero. Hell, look at John Kerry.

    It'll be something people have to think about I guess.

    I was really hoping after the last election we would be done with the whole "what did you do during Vietnam" thing. I guess it ain't over until the Boomers are all in homes.

    I'm sure someday down the road, when one of his kids are running for office they will have "longed to be in Iraq or Afghanistan". But, alas they were too busy trying to help Daddy win election. I'm sure they support the wars, just not THAT much.:steamed:

    Do you guys know that Obama never served in the military.

    Obama is the most anti-military president since Jimmy Carter.

    He has never said a kind word about the military (at least words that weren't written for him at some military event).

    Obama would severely cut the defense budget and end all military retirees pensions, in order to pay for his socialist healthcare.

    Obama has never indicated in any way that ever wished he'd joined the military.

    And yet you guys rag on Romney for implying that he wished he'd been in Vietnam.

    I just wonder how many of you are secretly Obama supporters, just posting here to try and discredit Romney?

    Kinda makes you wonder. Like it or not there are only two choices now. Either Romney or Obama will be in the White House. I guess a lot of folks want to Obama get a couple of SCOTUS nominations and continue wrecking the economy.

  13. Yes. I would like to see him make two more SCOTUS nominations. And the economy was wrecked when he took over.

    Well, at least your half way honest. The economy was in trouble when he took over, and he has consistently made it worse than it had to be.

    In my opinion military experience is not a necessary ingredient in a good president. But saying he "longed" to go to Vietnam just makes him another mealy mouthed politician. A kind of Republican version of John Kerry I think.

    You know, I know several wheat farmers that received farming deferments during WWII and never once have they said that they longed to be there when talking to my grandfather about his time in the the European Theater in the 101st Airborne. Nope, they all said that they were happy, happy to stay home and farm.
    If Romney got a deferment from that stupid war, good for him, own it. A lot of others didn't, including my father, but to stand up in front of veterans and say "I longed to be there" is sleazy, the kind of sleazy thing that would come from a low life used car salesman's mouth.

    A lot of people wished they were "there" once it is over. Some don't. I'm glad that I went to the places I went. I learned a lot about myself and humans in general.

    Yeah, I gotta give you that, even if he did long to be there, that is something better left unsaid.

    They are all liars and the republic would be better served if they were running for office in Zimbabwe.

    Yes, in many respects. Just not in the sense of actually volunteering to go there. It seems that is the lie that must be told to get elected, so there you go.

    Having said that, it puts him in the same boat as most of the other candidates. The wealthy and connected always found a way to avoid service, no matter how deeply they longed to serve. Amazing they have managed to avoid post traumatic stress as a result of the anguish they must have felt as a result of not serving.

    Zimbabwe has enough problems. :rofl:

    I don't get it, nothing was stopping him from volunteering. He got a deferment, didn't have to serve, and that should not be held against him. But to say you longed to to join the meat-grinder, and had a chance to sign up but didn't, comes across wrong IMHO.
