Hey Mitt. 55,000 Americans Want You To STFU

Discussion in 'Sports and News' started by Fenian_Bastard, Jun 25, 2007.

  1. Quote of the year, so far, from the Boston Globe's Romney series:

    "I was supportive of my country. I longed in many respects to actually be in Vietnam and be representing our country there and in some ways it was frustrating not to feel like I was there as part of the troops that were fighting in Vietnam."

    I think I can speak for many of the class when I say, fuck you, you smug, lying swine. Where are any of the Five Handsome Sons these days?
    This quote should kill his campaign, but it won't.

    What was he doing, missionary work? (Honest question, I don't know.)

    This guy is the definition of pandering. This guy would order dinner, then survey Republicans to see what they want for dinner, and then change his order to match their's.

    He received a deferment for the duration of his Mormon mission (2+ years) and then drew a high draft lottery number when he returned.

    Not quite as many as Cheney, who received at least five deferments.

    Dear Fenian,

    We don't know, nor do we care who Mitt Romney is. All we want is the head of John Kerry. That is from the Swiftboat boys.

    Sincerely yours,

    The 55,000 Americans who didn't come home alive from Vietnam.

    P.S. - We wish all you of political junkies and panderers would STFU and just support us as people, not a wedge tool.

    Once again, the board is cowed by Yawn's biting, erudite analysis.

    I liked Romney when he ran against Kennedy in 1994. Then I realized he was a fraud all along and all his "liberal" viewpoints were merely to get elected.

    Thank goodness he never got elected to the Senate.

    He's utterly worthless. I say that as a human being, not a liberal.
     

  12. Look it up. The only people who moved on any of the Vietnam issues -- from Agent Orange to PTSD -- were the remnants of the antiwar movement. That was dealing with Vietnam vets as people.
    And I think Mitt's the first one to say that he didn;t go to Vietnam but that he wished he had. Even Cheney's not that much of a swine.
