Still Breastfeeding?

My Dad had this to say in 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."


First off, we all know why Josh isn't in the Military but if no one asks me I won't tell.
Romney noted that his middle son, 36-year-old Josh, was completing a
recreational vehicle tour of all 99 Iowa counties on Wednesday and said, "I
respect that and respect all those and the way they serve this great country."


That's alot of rest stops and a lot of service if you know what I mean.... anyhoo...

"My sons are all adults and they've made decisions about their careers and they've chosen not to serve in the military and active duty and I respect their decision in that regard."
He added: "One of the ways my sons are showing
support for our nation is helping me get elected because they think I'd be a great president."

I guess the message is: you can help America as long as you suck off your Daddy's teet until you are well into your thirties. I must not be helping America because I have my own job (technically, I am in between jobs but since I am a self-employed entrepreneur, even more technically "down time" is part of my job) that Daddy hasn't given me.

If I weren't in the middle of some fairly complicated real estate transactions (there is a lien on a property I own in Irvine and another has been foreclosed upon- not my fault btw but more on that later) I would be in Iraq right now.

FYI guys, you could have headed to Iraq 4 years ago before the Presidential run (or what you call the Daddy Work Project). I would have but we were in the middle of a huge real estate boom and because I have to work for a living I had to seize the opportunity.

Anyway, let's face it, Tagg/fagg, Matt, Craig and Ben are chicken shits. Huge chicken shits. I beat the crap out of Ben one time (long story( I did a Tae Kwon Doe move on Tagg/fagg and he totally coincidentally moved and I accidentally head butted Ben and knocked his tooth out) that took place at a wave pool in Ohio) so hard that Craig cried. The only one with any balls in this family is me and Josh (the irony of course is that those would keep him out of the service).

Seth, I think you could get attention if you had a same sex partner and you asked John Edwards to mention you both in the next debate. Or better yet, make an announcement that you are the father of Mary Cheney's baby. Is Dick Cheney really going to deny that?

Mitt's answer was sure a lame and dumb one! But as for the sons: at present, you either are regular army or you are in the National Guard ofr Reserves. Most go into the National Guard to pick up extra money. The Mitt's kids seem not to have this need. So, then: they would be silly to go into a war that Bush initiated by joing the regular army when there is so much money in the family and service is not needed. In fact, lots of guys are not serving. But Mitt alas called attention to his silliness. Besides, how can you support a guy whose first name is named after a baseball glove?

"would have gone, but there was money to make" is supposed to place you in an entirely different category from Those Other Guys? I mean, there are plenty of reasons to go or not to go, but that's an uber-lame one. most of the folks Over There have families living hand to mouth in their absence...
