The Mormon Church officially got a draft deferment for Mitt Romney so he wouldn't have to go to Viet Nam.
Romney got his draft deferment by serving as a mormon missionary in...
Nobody has to make stuff up where republican presidential candidate are concerned. Well except for their campaign managers.
So Mitt Romney got a deferment because he was carrying the word to french chefs.
George Bush got out of going to Viet Nam because his daddy got him in the National Guard and he quit going when they told him he had to take a drug test to keep flying planes.
Dick Cheney got deferment after deferment, mainly because he was just too damned evil to be allowed anywhere near a war zone:
"...we learn that Cheney was at the heart of the soul-deadening practice of torture to extract information from our enemies."
"Cheney and his allies, according to more than two dozen current and former
officials, pioneered a novel distinction between forbidden "torture" and
permitted use of "cruel, inhuman or degrading" methods of questioning."....Washington Post
No way the United States of America is going to torture people, nope, nope, nope...We're sticking to...
"cruel and inhuman methods of questioning."
Antonin Scalia, Justice of the Supreme Court of the good old USA, told people that "torture works. Jack Bauer saved everybody in Los Angeles by torturing."
Oh great...We have a Supreme Court Justice who can't tell the difference between real life and a fictional TV program. Next thing you know, republicans will run a candidate who is totally unqualified to be president but it'll be ok because he's played one on TV...Oh, wait!...
Makes you proud to be an American.
