    Remember when conservatives pointed out that President Clinton didn't serve during the Vietnam conflict? Remember how the conservatives derided President Clinton for accepting a Rhodes Scholarship and going to England instead of protecting America from the falling dominoes in SE Asia?

    Remember how conservatives scorned Sen. Al Gore for his service in Vietnam as a photographer? Remember how conservatives lambasted Sen. Kerry whose service in Vietnam earned him a Purple Heart?

    Now it's our turn.

    Guess where Gov. Romney spent three years during the Vietnam Conflict.

    Hints to follow.

    When I think of Clinton I think of Anita Broderick, Monica Lewinsky and Democrats full support, can we talk about that?

    Of course, I'm not into censorship. So, 'talk' all you wish. Aren't you a wee bit curious about Mr Romney's whereabouts as Clinton studied in England and Bush politicked in Alabama?

    Hint #2

    Si vous svp, eau-de-vie fine avant mon dessert, dame.

    As I've always said (and written) conservatives are the least curious of the human species.

    You lefties missed the point as usual. The liberal media not only covered up Clinton's border line criminal draft evasion they covered up his serial abuse of women including credible allegations of class A felony rape. Al Gore couldn't take the pressure of the typewriter corps and convinced the Chaplain ...sob...sob that he needed to get out of Vietnam early so he could enter the Seminary. It was a lie of course. Nobody would have analyzed Kerry's self recommended Silver Star if he didn't use it for political purposes. It didn't hold up and neither did his self recommended Purple Hearts.

    Pretty lame dude, but run with it if you want to. I looked it up, Romney was in school at BYU and did a mission to France in 1969 or thereabouts, which every Mormon apparently does.

    The thing you said about curiousity, do you think your worldview is just a little bit biased?

    Are you sure Clinton was derided for not serving? As I recall it was more an issue of something about his organizing demonstratons against his own country while in England, and rumors that he had burned a US flag while there....

    From Clinton's letter to Colonel Holmes
    And also unproven but hinted at; what he may have done when he visited Russia in late 1969 early 1970:

    Some people are saying he spent three years in France, you know the place Freedom Fries were named after.

    Well, I certainly won't hold some time in la belle France against Romney.

    By the way, "Si vous svp" is redundant. "S'il vous plais" (for which svp is short) is often translated as "please," but it literally means "If it pleases you," so your phrase there would be "If you if it pleases you," which doesn't make sense. Just "svp" by itself is sufficient.

    Also, while "dame" is technically, grammatically correct, properly one should address a woman politely as either "madame" (literally, "my lady") or "mademoiselle" depending on her marital status.
