I think it's clear that Romney not only doesn't care about vets and currently serving soldiers, he has open contempt for them. So all you republicans with your magnetic ribbons on your SUVs can go fark yourselves.

/that doesn't even get into the fact that he has every intention of invading Iran and basically anything Israel tells him, by his own words
//President Romney= a shiatton of dead soldiers and nothing for the ones who make it back
///brilliant move, vets for Romney.

It is a shame that Senator Webb is retiring or at least not running again. His moderate voice will be missed in the national debate.

What you libs fail to acknowledge is Mitt Romney's hardships during the Vietnam war, like having to deal with the ghastly French and having to acquire cash via negotiable instruments sent to him by his family.

Where is his parade?

"There were no letters from home," Bush continues. "The money at the time came via check. That was our lifeline was getting letters from home."


Sure, the guys in Vietnam were hiding out in a steaming jungle and getting shot at, but I won't minimize the difficulty of cashing a non-local check in France.

More likely, one to many invasions of countries that had absolutely nothing to do with 9/11 and that ended up costing us a trillion dollars while destabilizing the Middle East even more.

I've got a batshiat insane Marine (is there any other kind) friend that varies between that and Republicans forcing God on everyone. It gets bizarre at times.

Does anybody seriously believe that Romney has any respect for people that go into the military? He sees them as poor people that are just trying to soak up more government tax dollars.

not true - i'm sure Romney views the military the same way most GOP insiders see them: as expendable resources. see, you need poor people - if you can't put them into workhouses (yet) then you can give them the illusion of hope and slightly better pay...and point them at your enemies. that way you channel aggression away from yourself, cause your enemies all sorts of problems AND might even gain new resources for your corporate machine.

of course, the problem is that not all of your expendables are going to end up dead...but that's ok, you just have to keep tabs on 'em and make sure they don't organize once they're out of the military. cut medical services and encourage them to believe that seeking help for mental health issues is a 'weakness', then flood the streets with cheap addictive and highly illegal drugs. that should lock them into a cycle of addiction/shame and keep them off your back.

easy peasey, up and easy.

And to compound our national shame over Vietnam, it looks as though we'll never elect a president who served there. The American political class like to talk about having "skin in the game" when it comes to taxes, yet as a body they sure seem to be resistant to life choices that could give them the perspective of the troops they claim so much to care about.

Romney is a morally bankrupt sub-human sack of shiat. His supporters are pig ignorant farkwits dragging down the entire human race, and that's the good ones. The remainder are evil scum who should be incinerated or driven into the sea.

from way back. He's one of the founders of the Project for a New American Century, and along with Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and others authored the PNAC letter to Pres. Clinton urging the removal of Saddam Hussein from Iraq.
He's also known in DC as a 'superlobbyist' and one of his clients is Ukraine, which explains why Romney keeps mention Russia.
It is abundantly clear that Romney has surrounded himself with Bush/Cheney neocons, itching for a fight with Iran.

Romney said "47% of the people who will vote for the president" meaning 47% of the people who will vote for OBAMA.

No, you farking disingenuous troll.


"There are 47% of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47% who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it. That that's an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what.
"And I mean the President starts off with 49, 49...he starts off with a huge number. These are people who pay no income tax. 47% of Americans pay no income tax. So our message of low taxes doesn't connect.
"So he'll be out there talking about tax cuts for the rich. I mean, that's what they sell every 4 years. And so my job is not to worry about those people. I'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.
"What I have to do is convince the 5% to 10% that are independents, that are thoughtful, that look at voting one way or another depending upon in some cases emotion, whether they like the guy or not."

It's true. Everyone else is dumb and you are the only one smart enough to figure it out. Like Copernicus you stand, alone and brave, the truth's true champion and defender.

It's a shame Webb is leaving. From what I've read he just doesn't have the temperament to be a politician and simply hated the bullshiat.

If for no other reason, we owe him a debt of gratitude for getting George Allen out of public office, hopefully permanently.

That's due to a quirk in State Law. There isn't a limit on the terms you can serve as Gov, but there is a limit on consecutive terms you can serve.

It's a shame a principled person is retiring from politics, regardless of where they fall on the political spectrum. However, we have all too many moderates - they're 95% of the Democratic party. What we need are some fire breathing liberals rather than just blue dogs and those who are cast as liberal simply because they aren't as extreme as what the GOP has become these days.
