Romneys Five Chickenhawks

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.

I suggest you send Hillery the address of the nearest NY recruiting office so she can pass it along to Chelsey.

Then she will have the same CHOICE as the Romney kids.

Or, as an alternative, contact Obama with the address to the nearest Chicago recruiting office so he can send it along to his two daughters.


marc: have you no shame?

5 strapping lads against 3 bottle-assed girls:

Uncle Sam needs strong backs.

The war machine is overheating.

(Nice opposition research on Obama's offspring BTW; never knew of the daughters before. Fine typing!)

But seriously: are Romney's boys pussies or what?


marc! gotta see this! true classic!

marc: have you no shame?

Turn about is fair play...

Have you no shame? Is "bottle-assed" anyway to describe any "girls?"

Not to mention you haven't a clue about or ignored the fact the U.S. military is and has been co-ed for a very long time.

BTW, what about Joe Biden's two sons and one daughter? Shouldn't they join up?


"Have you no shame? Is "bottle-assed" anyway to describe any "girls?"-marc"

It's an old westernism.

Have you ever noticed that almost all girls after puberty, even the petite ones, kind of clomp around?

And that they often are suprised to find their mate suddenly, noiselessly "there", because men DON'T clomp around due to higher upper-body weight distribution?

(I'm dubbed a 6'0, 200#, "snake".)

WELL: In the olden days out west, when families went to the general store, with those cheap wooden elevated floors, females were more liable to upset the myriad bottles of whatnots off the cheap wooden shelves. Clomp clomp jiggle crash. "Quit bottle-assing around, Bessie!"
So the term alludes to motor inefficiencies due to weight distribution which are relevant to physical aptitude. Nothing sadder than watching a mixed army formation march. Fat butts and military bearing don't mix.

"BTW, what about Joe Biden's two sons and one daughter? Shouldn't they join up?-marc"

The sons? Why not? All the top-tier candidates of both parties are hawks, including Biden. Feed the beast, hair plug guy!

Besides it being on-topic, the 5 Brothers deferral is just so screamingly obvious and is one hell of a political weapon to be fired for effect from points offshore and by locals and auxiliary pickets, paid and unpaid. Or just for fun. If moonman comes to town, I'm making a hiding5romneys (or something)sign. A parody of the famous 5 Fighting Sullivan Bros, with the "fighting" crossed out and "hiding" below or over it. It writes itself.
