Was that before or after Romney served in France?

Fess up Mittbots, your boy's only advantage is he is campaigning against Obama.

So, tell me, why didn't Romney die in Viet Nam?

Do not forget Romney’s five sons served their country by campaigning for their father too.

Well just darn ~ so none of them serve in our armed forces. How about Mexico's armed forces ~ did any of them serve there?

Just who are these people.

Well, we know they are not soldiers, marines or sailors. They are “campaigners”. They sacrificed for their country, don’t you know?
