latest Romney outrage: claims sons show support for their country by “helping me get elected”

BETTENDORF, Iowa – Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney on Wednesday defended his five sons’ decision not to enlist in the military, saying they’re showing their support for the country by “helping me get elected,” writes the estimable Glen Johnson for the Associated Press.

Romney, who did not serve in Vietnam due to his Mormon missionary work and a high draft lottery number, was asked the question by an anti-war activist after a speech in which he called for “a surge of support” for U.S. forces in Iraq.

Romney, the former Massachusetts governor, also saluted a uniformed soldier in the crowd and called for donations to military support organizations. Last week, he donated $25,000 to seven such organizations … more.

To compare the partisan self interest of the Romney sons to those who fight and die in foreign lands—this is beneath comment.

The supreme arrogance of Willard Milton Romney develops apace. How low can this man go? Here be the video courtesy of Vide08.
