Romney not only ‘hypocrite’


In answer to Diane Daiute’s letter to the editor (July 11) in which she complained about Mitt Romney’s lack of military service.

Just how much time has President Obama spent in the military except for being the commander in chief? Zilch, nada, none.

He has disrespected every branch of our military in one way or another. Even a fifth-grader knows that the “P” in Marine Corps is silent, but not the commander in chief and even a fifth-grader knows that when you salute the flag the hand goes over the heart, not the crotch; but then that’s our president and we are supposed to respect him.

For the past 68 years, all presidents, except Obama, have paid tribute to the fallen soldiers killed on D-Day. This year he made a campaign trip on Air Force 1 to California to raise funds for the upcoming election. He did not honor them in 2010, or 2011 either.

Obama did not even have the guts to vote for or against the Iraq war – he voted present; quite the leader, huh?

Obama is the only president to ever give his support to a foreign nation in a lawsuit against one of our own states. Talk about allegiance to our country. Talk about your hypocrisy

So before bashing Romney, I think you should take a very hard look at the present Democratic choice for the next four years. I may not like Romney but I dislike Obama even more. Four more years of the “liberal’s dream come true” will destroy the two-party system; but then, again, hasn’t that been the goal of the liberals all along?
