I know life on the campaign trail is supposed to be hard, but I didn’t think it equated to serving in Iraq. However it appears Mitt Romney does:
At an “Ask Mitt Anything” forum this morning in Iowa, former Gov. Mitt Romney (R-MA) was asked about why his sons have not served in the military. His response:
“My sons are adults. They’ve chosen not to serve in the military in active duty and I respect their decision in that regard. … And 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.”
He should’ve stopped after explaining they’re adults and it’s their decision and I would’ve been fine with that, but that extra bit just makes him sound like a pompous ass.
