    Did Mitt Romney 'Long' To Serve In Vietnam? | ThinkProgress

    He supported the Vietnam war, then went and got 4 deferments so that he wouldn't have to go.

    He said he had no desire to serve in Vietnam back in '94 and did nothing to remove himself from the draft pool, yet he got 4 deferments.

    He then says later (while running for president) that he wishes he'd been there? This should be an insult to any military member who has served this country during conflict.

    Why do veterans support Romney? When he was eligible to serve this country, he bailed out of it. What kind of CIC would he be? Because unlike Obama, he actually was eligible, Obama was only a kid.

    Here is a predictable response.... but here goes.


    The same way you guys supported Clinton.

    I mean ABS, what other choice do I, a conservative, have right now? Obama???

    Yeah right :eusa_hand:

    What I want to know is how YOU support Obama... a man who is trying to GUT the military and by all intents purposes, despises the military.

    In the article posted it has the difference at 58 percent for Romney, 34 percent for Obama.

    Wonder if the Viet Nam veterans know about this?

    These are the same libs that applauded that piece of shit known as John Kerry and besmirched John McCain and David Petraeus.

    They have zero crediility...

    Since Bill Clinton, this is a non-issue.

    You don't get to have your cake and eat it too.

    Really? Got proof that he despises the military? Because from what I've seen on the news, as well as what I've heard from some active duty relatives, they feel better under Obama than they did under Jr.

    I mean............he got not one, but FOUR deferments during Vietnam, and towards the end of the war quit applying for them because there was a drawdown and his number was in the 300's out of 350, meaning very little chance of being called up.

    Then, he says he's glad he didn't serve in '94 when interviewed about it, but then when he starts up his political career he says he wishes he'd been over there?

    That's an insult to every veteran who DID serve over there.
