 The Ultimate Chickenhawk 
ROMNEY: “The president’s policies have ... exposed the military to cuts that no one can justify.” He said the military faces “an arbitrary, across-the-board budget reduction that would saddle the military with a trillion dollars in cuts. ... Strategy is not driving President Obama’s massive defense cuts.”

THE FACTS: Actually it was Congress, more than Obama, that set the stage for such a massive cut in the Pentagon’s budget. Last summer’s crisis over increasing the government’s borrowing cap produced an agreement designed to force lawmakers to make the kind of hard decisions that would reduce future deficits. That agreement was passed overwhelmingly by the House and Senate.

Mitt Romney went to a VFW event today and talked a lot of shit.  He didn't mention the three years he spent in France while avoiding his turn to serve in Vietnam.   And, you know damn well from that picture that he was a big fan of fighting that war - as long as he didn't have to fight,  of course.   And, it's the same with those five sons of his.  Big supporters of war as long as their asses don't have to go. 

Romney doesn't deserve the right to speak to veterans.  He's the worst type of coward - he's the ultimate Chickenhawk.  And, he's a liar, too.
