Romney: No Army For My Sons...They Show Patriotism 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."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.

Typical chickenhawk. War is OK as long as I don't have to suffer directly, personally. At one point Romney called the War on Terror the singularly most important fight in our country's history. You'd think if he truly believed it, and if his sons believed it (as apparently they do, as they're working for his campaign), they'd join up.
