    Ann Romney making excuses for her sons not serving in the military.

    What a joke! Morman missionaries aren't serving their countries. They are serving and promoting their religion. There is no problem with that but there is also NO COMPARISON whatsoever to serving in the military.

    And some people really do want this family in the WH? So privileged and totally out of touch? There is also nothing wrong with that except that they should not attempt to lead this country or tell the "peons" what they should do, etc.

    Mormons serve humanity during their missions.

    Which makes them objects of derision as far as lefties are concerned.

    Seems like Romney served uppers in his religion, driving them around and such.

    About 2% of the US population are serving in the military at any given time.

    I would imagine that "No sons in the military" is a pretty common 'affliction'.

    Find something worth bitching about or STFU.

    Let's see, it's not okay the Obama and Biden didn't serve (Biden's son did) but it is okay for Ann Romney to say Mormons serve their country like the military does AND for her 5 sons to not serve in the military as well as Mitt himself not to serve. I get it. Double standards!

    The point I was making is that this family is out of touch. How would it go down if Obama said I served my country as a community organizer which is another way of serving besides being in the military?

    And I said, nothing bad about Morman missionaries except that the comparison to serving in the military and losing your life and loved ones is not at all the same! She shouldn't have compared the 2.
