    Shocking no one, Mitt Romney is a dick to our troops



    Asked by a friendly news outlet why he didn't bother praising our troops in his speech, Romney responded:


    When you give a speech you don't go through a laundry list, you talk about the things you think are important.
    Wrong answer. You thank the fucking troops. They are not a laundry list. And while Romney might not think they are important, they kind of are.

    Romney then goes on to claim that he talked about a "strong military", which was totally the same as thanking the troops for their service. Except that it's not. One of them speaks to the institution, the other speaks to the individuals who do the work of the institution. It's the same distinction as corporations and the people who work for them -- a distinction that Romney famously fails to understand.

    Presidential aspirants should ignore the military in their acceptance speech? :lol:


    If a Democrat ever did that, wingnuts would howl.

    Yes, I'm sure if Obama didn't thank the military the right would be up in arms, and it would be just as silly if they complained about it.

    Suddenly the left is concerned about respect for the troops the same left that gave us this full page ad.
