I did not feel attacked at all.

I never thought of a proselytizing deferment as cheapening the argument since it is such an odd deferment. I know that Israel gives their Orthodox Jews a deferment. I was simply amazed that you could get a deferment like that here.

Fair enough and well-spoken on both counts. It's always great to have civil discourse. Maybe I've been spending too much time reading the comments on Yahoo. :)

Timothy, you didn't get my point. I meant that the double standards were on the Republican side. While the GOP harassed Clinton ad infinitum about his draft dodging, look how quiet they have been on Romney's draft dodging, or for that matter George W., whose daddy made sure that he "served" in the National Guard in America.

Clinton was a great President.
I am worried for America, because in past situations of adversity, a great leader always restored American greatness and took it to new heights. Reagan after Carter's mess, Clinton after Bush I's S&L mess, etc.

This time, neither Obama nor Romney are of the leadership caliber needed to fix America's mess, and Asia is on the verge of handing out the knockout punch which will have a definitive shift in the global geopolitical balance - in fact this is already happening.

In fact, this almost happened with Japan in the 1970s and 1980s when America with good leadership fought back and kicked Japan into its lost decades where it still is. This time, I am not so sanguine.

Timothy P. Young says: "Kathleen, while it's true Romney avoided the draft by going on his mission, by bringing up his religion you lower the argument. I strongly feel it's best to keep such things out of the political discourse."

How's this then?

Romney dodged the draft and refused to serve his country because he felt he had better things to do... Until he was running for office and it became politically expedient to blather on about how he wished he could have served in Vietnam.

Yeah, all four deferments. Every one he got he could have served, but like the weather vane that he is, it was a better deal for Romney to let others go die and then claim he really, really, oodles, and kaboodles, wanted to go.

He was just too busy with other things to be bothered...

Better?

Why didn't he serve as a Mormon chaplain in the U.S. Army, I wonder?

Because his dad had enough money so he didn't have to.

Yes, indeed. This is a good thing.

Believe me, we're used to it. You've been spamming the forum with that tripe for months now.

Just makes you look like a hypocrite though...

Because that would be "witnessing" somewhere where he might be in danger.

Mittens doesn't do danger well. He needs a full analysis and an outlook report with a "buy" consensus before his pinky will even twitch.

Mittens let the poor people risk their lives because he was too busy "witnessing" in Paris...

BM says: "better start gettin' used to it!"

Why? Is Romney running for PTA president somewhere?

TS, where are you living these days?

I think that is just a by product, rather than the goal, of the government's policies in general regardless of party affiliation.

I can't blame any politician or any citizen, whether they be Democrat, Republican, Independent...whatever, for trying to do whatever they could to avoid the Vietnam war. We were flat out wrong to get involved in another country's civil war that was no threat to our national security or way of life, and the way the war was stretched out and mishandled by Presidents Johnson and Nixon, as well as military generals, was horrendous. We didn't even have a clear strategy for winning that war. It lead to thousands of unnecessary, unforgivable deaths of our fighting men and women.

And to top it off, the young men and women who did go ahead and do what their country told them to do were treated like crap when they came back home, for the most part. It remains a national shame and tragedy.

So, I'm not gonna knock Romney, Clinton, Bush 43, Muhammad Ali or whomever for doing whatever they could to avoid the draft. This wasn't World War II, which had a clear purpose and was a case where our way of life really WAS threatened. This was a case of our national leaders telling us to try and be the world's policemen against a fighting force that was tougher than we could have ever imagined. We were bound for defeat.

Robert, I agree with you except... for those that call other people draft dogers for doing the same thing.

I love how Obama stood by his campaign promise to end the war in Afghanistan.

Point: All politicians lie. Good luck finding the truth in politics as everything is spun to appeal to a certain demographic.

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 11, 2012 3:29:07 PM PDT
dss,

I agree -- those who did the same thing should not cast stones at others for avoiding the draft simply because they are a political opponent.

Blah Blah Blah.

So four more years of Obama and out of control Federal spending is what you want? Yahoo!! In just a few years more we'll be Spain or Greece and our nation won't be able to buy its way out of its own debts. Oh joy...oh joy.

Think the economy is bad now? Four more years of Obama and the Liberal spending habits will wreck our nation's economy.

How about when I say "I always lie".

Am I telling the truth ?

Did you ever hear Mitt saying that he lies?
Of course not. Because he's a congenital liar.
