    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.

    Obama's speech text from Democratic National Convention 2012 in Charlotte | abc7chicago.com
    Obama cuts military health care benefits, leaves unionized civilians untouched

    Ron Paul: Obama's proposed cuts to veteran healthcare 'unjust and immoral'

    VA secretary vs. Obama and his lousy record on vets
    should I continue, or do you get the picture???

    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.

    Hardly. We'd welcome and respect President Romney.
    Clinton.Carter.Clinton - loathed the troops.
    Feelings were mutual.

    Perhaps the pussy OP should enlist to verify.

    Did you check the date on the charts? its from 2/23/12, so before Romney was even the candidate. Obama was 100% assured to be the dem candidate, and Ron Paul has his own true believers.

    Politifact would call this "Pants on Fire"

    Im sure Mitt Romney would be shocked. After all, he treats people with respect.

    Obama steals the military successes and benefits for his own selfish and socialistic ambitions.

    barry really told a whopper when he said he wouldd stop the war and use that money topay down the debt. Only problem with that is that currently the wars are being run on borrowed money.
