    Over a hundred thousand mormons served during vietnam http://www.cesnur.org/2002/slc/woodger.htm. 589 died while serving. http://www.militaryfactory.com/vietnam/casualties.asp#10.

    So while folks rush to defend the chicken hawk Mitt because of his religion. Just remember that for 589 who gave up the ultimate sacrifice, their Mormon faith did not stop them from defending this country when in need.

    I do not fault Mitt for being a coward. I fault him for wanting to be commander and chief and a coward.

    I have no problem with draft dodgers. No one has the right to force you to fight and die.

    I do have a problem with a chickenhawk, though.

    It never ceases to amaze me how the far left, vehemently anti-war, who rioted and draft dodged and fled the country, can today be so indignant about non service by others.

    So what? John McCain's service in Vietnam did him a heck of a lot of good when it came to running for president.

    The candidate leading in the polls is always the more desperate one.

    That's insane.

    The candidate who constantly shifts campaign strategies towards the end of it always loses.

    lol @neo-cons trying to paint me as a leftist. I am just exposing the fake conservitive that is Mitt Romney for what he really is. Not my fault the Republicans didnt have the balls to put up REAL conservitive against Obama. Reality is that I am far to the right of Mitt and Obama. When I say I support limited government I mean it. Bah that doesnt matter, when they can not counter the truth they resort to attacking the poster... lol

    But that doesnt change the facts about Mitt...

    Mitt Romney is a chickenhawk. He actually went out and protested FOR the war prior to running away like a little (*)(*)(*)(*)(*) to France to get his ass wiped for him. All the while other MORMONS were dying for their country.

    The truth is Romney just used his religion as an excuse to not serve our country when in need. Other Mormons did not use that excuse... In fact at least 589 died without using that excuse. As I said prior, nothing wrong with a man being a coward... but there is something wrong with a coward wanting to be leader of the free world.

    We've already had an actual draft dodger as a two term President. It seems you should have been more upset by that than someone who didn't break any laws.

    Now if you are saying that only Veterans should be allowed to run for President, I'll consider that constitutional amendment, but this "chickenhawk" label is absurd.

    That all changed at the debates...and Romney is going to have to come up with a "are you better off than 4 years ago" moment.

    And that's not as easy as it sounds...because the Romney campaign has been saying that forever, so they can't use it again.

    Romney has to come up with something he hasn't said before, and after 30+ debates in the primary, and waaaaay more coverage and exposure than Reagan got in 1980....how can he possibly come up with something grounbreaking, that he hasn't already said? The numbers have his campaign so worried they surely would have fired off something groundbreaking before now to stop the perception that Obama is pulling ahead. They've tried to capiatalize on the Libya thing...but Fox is the only one talking about that 24 hours a day

    Plus, Carter had poor foreign policy numbers, and Obam doesn't, and Reagan didn't have any 47% moments.

    It's going to be a tall order for Romney.

    The Romney campaign and Fox News love to make the Carter/Reagan comparison...but this one has aspects of Carter/Reagan, Kerry/Bush, and Kennedy/Nixon.

    The election is Romney's to win or lose, on the first debate night, next Wednesday.

    I am saying that Mitt is a chickenhawk and that his Religious "excuse" for not serving is not a good one for someone who was out protesting for the war. If he felt that strongly for the war that he went out protesting Then he should have been like the other Mormons who actually served. But he ran.....
    Chicken hawk

    We have had a lot of bad presidents and we currently do have a bad president. So why the (*)(*)(*)(*) did the GOP pick another would be bad president?

    Oh and yeah, Mitt is no Reagan he has ZERO skills in gaining the trust and conviction of the people. All he has going for him is the opposition to OBama. Reagan on the otherhand had the opposition and the admiration of the American People. His convention speech was remembered unlike the empty chair that was the highlight of Mitt romney's convention.

    The polls are accurate enough...these same polls that folks are dissmissing were accurate during 2010.......crickets

    Obama won as soon as Mitt because the GOP nominee.

    By just looking at the marbros' pic, I can safely say he is not a democrat, but to people who are retarded, anyone who is not for the fraud right, is automaticaly for the left, and if I ask you for proof to your claims, you will fart and walk away.

    Those other criticisms of Romney are irrelevant to Romney being a chickenhawk.

    First, the term is stupidly meaningless. That's like saying you have to have served in the military to have an opinion on a war. Most people are chickenhawks then. So just to be clear, when and where did you serve?

    "Better A Morman Than A Muslim!"

    Our country can't stand four more years of the lying Kenyan Muslim Obama!

    Mitt was not a coward during VietNam like Clinton was. Clinton had people lying for him to get out of the military. Romney did not. Romney did not "flee" to France, but went there as a church missionary. When he got back, the draft lottery was in and he got a high number, and he did not volunteer. Everything Romney did was proper, and those implying differently are lying.

    Maybe Romney "dodged" Vietnam, I don't care. He is better than obama who is trying to fundamentally change (i.e. overthrow from within) the US. I'll take the pansy dodger over the revolutionary socialist.

    Obama is not a Muslim and judging someone’s faith and not their policy’s is disgusting as is calling an American non-American because you don’t like them seems to be an insult to Mormons in there as well you’re a disgrace
