    At an “Ask Mitt Anything” forum this morning in Iowa, former Gov. Mitt Romney (R-MA) was asked about why his sons have not served in the military. His response:
    My sons are adults. They’ve chosen not to serve in the military in active duty and I respect their decision in that regard. … And one of the ways my sons are showing support for our nation is helping me get elected because they think I’d be a great president.

    Romney equates sons' campaigning to military service.

    Such a supporter for Iraq. But he was "more important".

    This is a perfect example of what I hate about people on both sides of the aisle.

    An edited soundbite does not a point make.

    I didn't join the military - that was a choice I made as an adult, just like Romney's sons. I can't fault him for that, and the fact that all anyone cares about now are "gotcha" moments depresses me to no end.

    Yeah..it was a stupid thing to say.

    Gosh..if Obama said anything close to that..there would be a thread 300 pages long in no time around here..

    And Rush, FOX propaganda and the rest of the right wing noise factory would be bleating this for weeks.

    I was talking to my girlfriend, who is Chinese, about this. The factories that were moved there from America, are desperate because demand from America is low.

    Gotta love it.
