So he supported his country stopping communism? I don't agree with the draft but there is no reason to name call. This is the left name calling when they are panicking. Have you looked into Obama's college years where he supported professor Derrick Bell? Or are you being bias?

Everyone knows he honored a well-respected college dean like Derrick Bell.  Does anyone who's not Andrew Breitbart care, however?  No.  Supporting the Vietnam War is bad enough, but supporting the draft to the point of protesting in favor of it while you're out dodging it goes beyond words.

That's the leftist point of view but you're entitled to your opinion. Brietbart is an admirable man while Derrick Bell advocated racial differences and class warfare.

If he supported "stopping communism" so much he should have done the patriotic thing and volunteered to join the military.

Obama was in elementary school while Romney was protesting here.

He still never joined. I don't like using the "he never served" in order to make Republicans look like hypocrites. Kerry supporters did the same thing to Bush. There is no need to call Romney names just because you disagree with him on the draft. I disagree and I'm not calling him names. It sounds like someone has a case of class envy.

The silence from certain members about this is very amusing.

OK, "jax47", quit trolling. You had us believing you really were a hard right conservative, but then you went too far in trying to insist that Obama not enlisting for Vietnam as a grade schooler was actually comperable to romney's failure to enlist as a college student. Nice try there, but no sentient person says something THAT stupid. Nice try, joke sock. Now quit posting as a fake conservative or else.

In other news, all these fake avatars are giving me a headache!.  Of course, some around here may think mine was fake from day one. Tongue

No I said that I'm tired of the left using military service as a way to make conservatives look hypocritical. By saying that Obama "still didn't serve" I meant ever not during Vietnam. The left in our country has been doing this ever since Bush ran in 2000.

Speaking as a conservative and as a veteran- I believe it is a legitimate point... neither served but for some one to advocate a nation-building war I believe it is hypocritical not to have served when able...I was sent to Vietnam by men who won world wars. Now men and women ares ent to Afghanistan by men who got five deferments...and those people approach it with an elitist perspective

What I want to say is- Mr. Romney if not you or your sons who should serve in a war you believe in? I do not belive that if you did not serve you can not support military action but those who do not serve do not understand the toll it takes...even on volunteers. This is the same as the DADT debate- I watched Saxby Chambliss- the man who compared MAX CLELAND to Hussein- give a lecture on how military life is very different from civilian life...this coming from a man who sought and was grantd multiple deferments in the late 60s...pathetic

I do hope someone asks Romney about this. I think it is a legit issue about why he protested in support for the draft while he sought deferments.

You are being absolutely ridiculous.  Our point isn't merely that Romney didn't serve, it's that he didn't serve and picketed at a pro-draft rally.  If he had any decency, he would've protested at the anti-draft demonstrations instead, or at least not partaken in any demonstration at all.  I don't see how this is so difficult to understand.

It would be like one of those rich CEOs- who've benefited from not paying any taxes thanks to all the loopholes and tax cuts- going on the street and holding up a sign that says "Help your country!  Pay your taxes!".

Disagree strongly with Romney here -

If a man is unwilling to fight for his country, he should not be sent abroad.

You get a far better army from men who want to defend their country, and you'll get more recruits when it's understood that these are all you will get.

So he supported the draft and didn't serve. I also disagree with him on this. It's not difficult to understand. No name calling is needed. Rich CEO's? That's language from the left. Damn those fat cats, right? How about help your country and cut taxes?
