    As I suspected, the supposed dodging of the draft never occurred.

    Romney received a school deferment because, GASP, he was in college. He then received a deferment because he spent 30 months in France as a Missionary. Neither event being exceptional or dodging anything. Upon his return he went to College again but was in the draft for 69, his high number meant he did not get picked.

    Lets contrast that with Clinton shall we?

    Clinton got an ROTC Col. to write him a deferment letter with the promise he would join the ROTC program. He not only did not join after getting the letter he fled the Country to England to purposefully avoid the draft, which he admitted in the letter to the Col.

    Remind us again which of the two actually took steps to AVOID the draft?

    You mean that Bill Clinton won a Rhodes Scholarship just to avoid the draft?

    That's not "hypocritical".

    The fact of having "religious beliefs" means that you think all the other religions have it WRONG.

    Sure..lets.

    Clinton was against the Vietnam war..protested against it..but eventually registered.

    Romney was FOR the Vietnam war..protested in favor of it...then went to France.

    It's very simple.

    Clinton stated in his letter to the Col he used the Col to avoid the draft and was now reneging on his commitment. He openly admitted dodging the draft by LYING to the Col to avoid the draft. He then skipped the Country after avoiding the draft with his lie. Romney submitted to the draft also and was not selected. Pretty simple concept.

    Clinton's Rhodes Scholarship is worth about as much as Obama's Nobel Peace Prize.

    Bullshit on both points.

    Romney never submitted to the draft.
