As most of you probably know due to the nauseating family video that Romney's campaign put out, he has five grown sons. Believe it or not, none of his sons have chosen to the enter the military at a time when his father continues to insist that other families should send their sons to fight and die in Iraq. To add insult to injury, Romney's claimed his sons are showing their support for their country by helping him to become President:
Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney on Wednesday defended his five sons' decision not to enlist in the military, saying they're showing their support for the country by "helping me get elected."
"The good news is that we have a volunteer Army and that's the way we're going to keep it," Romney told some 200 people gathered in an abbey near the Mississippi River that had been converted into a hotel. "My sons are all adults and they've made decisions about their careers and they've chosen not to serve in the military and active duty and I respect their decision in that regard."
He added: "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."
Spoken like a true elitist.
