    Hi

    I’ve heard that this fat chichen-hawk named Gingrich didn’t serve in Vietnam, what was his reason?
    He can also become the first fat president in US history, or is he to fat to become president.

    So US can end up with their first fat president. But why didn’t he serve, was he to fat to be fitt for service?

    He was married and had a child.

    No, he would not be the first fat President. Taft and Cleveland were both pretty porky.

    Why didn’t Gingrich serve in Vietnam

    Probably for the reasons that that douchebag Cheney didn't serve.

    And, he's fat and lazy.

    Actually, he probably talked his way out of it!

    "I need one quick follow up. When I was drafted, I was married and had two kids and I went."

    It happens at 3:18

    But Ron Paul served, he was also married with two children. But Ron Paul is more athletic than Gingrich. Their must ba an other reason?
    When I was in the military, fat guys like Gingrich were rejected. Was it because of his obesity that he didn’t serve.

    People always say that, Why didn't he server in Nam. You guys to realize even though it was a long war, the Number of people who ever served there, was vastly smaller than the Number that did not. Just because someone was not in Nam does not mean they had to Dodge it. For Every 1 Person that was Drafted for example 10 were not. Popular Perception today seems to have people thinking Every Able Body man had to Serve there. It Wasn't WWII people. Our Force size Was around 750k at it's peak I believe. and Averaged around 500k.

    Compare that to WWII where we had something like 14,000,000 Under Arms, and landed over a Million People in one Amphibious Invasion. yet Even in WWII it was more likely you never served than did.
