Romney Gets Served On Service August 8, 2007Posted by fitsnews in 2008 Presidential Primaries.
HOW OUT OF TOUCH CAN A POLITICIAN BE?
FITSNews – August 8, 2007 – So flip-flopper extraordinaire Mitt Romney was asked why his five sons don’t serve in the military at a campaign stop in Iowa this morning. Ready for his answer? Here it is, straight from Jonathan Martin’s blog on The Politico:
“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 said … Romney (then) specifically cited the efforts of his son, Josh, who has taken an RV dubbed “the Mitt Mobile” to all 99 of Iowa’s counties this summer.
Uhh … is that your final answer, Mitt? No lifeline? Because you could have seriously said that they were gay or blind (or gay and blind) and probably gotten a better reaction. Needless to say, the woman who asked the question wasn’t picking up what Mitt was throwing down:
“He told me the way his son shows support for our military and our nation is to buy a Winnebago and ride across Iowa and help him get elected,” Rachel Griffiths said.
Yowzers. We have no idea who Rachel Griffiths is, but we’re guessing she was the girl in elementary school who could always circle the “main idea” in a paragraph no matter how long or how hard the paragraph was. Damn those annoying critical thinkers … who knew there was a difference between a working class kid dodging bullets in a hostile war zone and a spoiled rich kid dodging dandelions on an Iowa roadside?
