    Good job Prez. the government is for the people and not tax evaders and draft evaders.

    I recently read about how you grew up with your WWII vet (your grandfather). I don't know if any of the Romney men have served in the army.

    Obama / Biden 2012

      Give me Biden's military history!! Give me Obama's military history. We are waiting! How about Bill Clinton's?

        Gee Steveo President Obama was 14 when the Vietnam War ended. Joe Biden had deferments was later disqualified for the draft due to asthma.

        Now let us look at Romney's record:.in 1966 he protested against those protesting the draft....but here is the zinger...during college he acquired 3 draft deferments on the grounds he was a Morman missionary.

        I see that as very telling about Mitt Romney...he by action was sayng to others "You go die for the country. I have my draft deferments."

        I doubt very much if those you mention who were OLD enough to serve that had deferments (other than Mitt) were actively protesting against those who were protesting because they were being drafted. To me, that sort of sums Romney up as a typical rich kid who is a two-faced hypocrite...."i've got mine...bummer for you."

        Obama-Biden 2012!

        Gee jean, you never heard of Desert Storm? While you are fixiated on Vietnam, don't act like there were NO other opportunities for military service!. Now let me ask you this, Clinton Protested Vietnam while at Oxford! Did you ever have a issue with that? I too was too young for Vietnam, Jean but somehow had a military career. How did that happen?

        July 17, 2012 at 11:25 am |

        OH YEAH JAY? HOW OLD ARE OBAMA'S KIDS? HOW OLD ARE MITT ROMNEY'S KIDS? I THINK THOSE BOYS ARE OLD ENOUGH FOR ACTIVE MILITARY DUTY BUT THEY'RE NOT. WHAT DOES THAT TELL YOU ABOUT MILITARY SERVICE? DIDDLY SQUAT. IT IS VOLUNTARY AND YOU DON'T KNOW OR CAN'T PREDICT WHO WILL SERVE OTHER THAN THE FACT THEY ARE TOO FEW.

      The government is not for tax evaders? Did you forget about Obama's pick for Treasury Secretary – Timothy Geithner? You totally forgot about Bill Clinton? You people only care if a politician did not serve in the military if they were a Democrat.

      The drought in the midwest will not only jack up food prices, but since Obama is converting our military ships to bio-fuels ... now running at $26 per gallon ... he has once again managed to screw the American tax payer, while putting our national defense at risk. Save America ... dump Obama in November !!!

        Biodiesel can be made from many things corn, soy, sugar cane...but it can also be made from pond scum algae and from some types of prairie grasses such as little blue stem. Actually, the pond scum algae and the little blue stem would be the wiser choices due to the fact that they are not used for human consumption, and both grow well without intense fertilization and the need to be planted annually.
        Obama-Biden 2012!

      If God forbid, Obama wins a second term ... and our rights, and economy become decimated ... the only silver lining will be the thought of you Obama stooges ... and your children ... and your children's children, having to live in the third world country, which you are helping to create. If Obama gets reelected ... America is doomed. What a shame.

    It's costing tax payers $10 million in logistics and security to help Obama raise $3 million for his campaign. Sad.

      The 77 round trips to the Crawford Ranch cost $20 million and that doesn't include the cost for the Bush campaign and other trips..

    Gee Steveo and Jay.. Yes Clinton protested against the draft...not for it....like Romney....Clinton was not two faced he wasn't protesting the protestors. He was not saying to those being drafted If Romney felt so strongly why didn't he enlist? He was definitely of age with a draft number. I find it hilarious not one of you fools mentioned Cheney and Bush!

    Romney: "You go serve and die for your country me, I have my deferement."

    http://www.politicususa.com/mitt-romney-draft-dodger.html

    Link complete with photo of him carrying a sign.

    Jay you surely are one historically challenged unintelligent twit:
    Desert Storm time frame 1990 -1995...In 1990 the president was 30, and frankly I don't know of any 30 year old draftees...outside of WWII.

    As for President Obama's father he was a foreign exchange student not elegible for our draft or military...and in 1965 his mother had a 5 year old, and would definitely not be drafted. The President's Grandfather was a WWII veteran who is buried at Punchbowl National Cemetery, in Hawaii.

      Jean ...why don't you and the other Obama stooges, focus on how Obama has destroyed our economy, our energy industry, and our constitution ... instead of focusing on a bunch of meaningless topics, like who served in the military, or who has earned a lot of money. Like Obama, you have to divert attention away from the dismal record of the past 3 1/2 years.

    Geen Jean, We didin't mention Bush nor Cheney because they were not discussed until now. Bush served, ask Dan Rather, or who ever lost their job over that lying report about it!

    Secondly, why are you STIll hung up over a draft. We have had a volunteer force for quiet a LONG time now! There were PLENTY of opportunity to VOLUNTEER!

    Thirdly, it doesn't bother you that Clinton protested American actions while in England? To do it here is one thing, to hide out in England and do it is something altogether different. at east to someone reasonable!

    I find it hilarious you keep deflecting Bush!

    July 17, 2012 at 12:17 pm |
    • Cynthia L.

      Cheney avoided the draft through deferments. He likes war and shoots friends in the face while hunting but, going to war himself? The man is the biggest coward of all because he was/is a WAR PROFITEER through his NO-BID CONTRACTS he had a hand in giving his pet company HALLIBURTON during the Iraq war.
      Romney was happy to have the Dick give him a fundraiser. BUT NO PICTURES TAKEN WITH THEM TOGETHER.

      July 17, 2012 at 10:34 pm |
      • Jay in NC

        Thats right, you lost the argument on the economy so start talking about Cheney.

        July 18, 2012 at 12:52 am |
    • Cynthia L.

      Okay, Steveo here's some beef -
      Two veteran health economists, David Cutler of Harvard and Karen Davis, president of the Commonwealth Fund calculated that the 1st decade of Obamacare total spending on health care will be HALF A TRILLION DOLLARS LOWER THAN THE STAUS QUO.

      The economy had less than 3% growth under Bush (Oh those pesky reminders that the tax-cuts for the top 1% job creators didn't work)

      QUESTION: Your IRA has a $6,000.00 per year deposit limit – so HOW did Mitt get over 100 Million in his??
      .......Happy now?

        That little appetizer was for Jay in NC.

    Steveo you seem to forget you asked for Biden's and Obama's military records....may I ask where are yours...as I see it I was not the first to mention President Clinton (who I might add is not running) YOU DID...but since you did brought it up I pointed outh the chinks in your armor.

    Romney not only had 4 Vietnam war deferments he protested in favor of the draft... a draft not for himself but for others to go serve and die LOL....HOW CONVENIENT! I will point this out again and again.

    Seems you have a bad case of Romnesia! It must be something in all that tea you are drinking.

        No Steveo....Bill Clinton is not running...and you know we know you didn't mean Hilary, you stated Bill Clinton in the second post from the top on this page...and Clinton hasn't ran since 1996. So, you left yourself wide open forme to bring in Bush and Cheney.

        You are about as reliable as Moonves, and a historically challenged mental midge to boot.

        The only thing that has tweaked you and fired you up is you know I hit the nail on the head about Romney. You know it, I know it, and everyone who reads this page knows it. There he is in the 1966 photograph which shows him picketing at Stanford with the poster in his hand...and all the while he had a draft deferment. What a weasel!

      Don't worry not one of them ever comes back with a logical fact.
      Love the fact that they talk about President Obama's girls probably not volunteering, but fail to mention the 5 Romney sons. Overlook the fact that the President is serving as Commander in Chief.
      They tilt at windmills like Don Quixote and never produce a source for their babbling. They even disavow their own sources as hatchet jobs when it disagrees with their position.

      • jean2009

        Oh yeah do I remember the 80's. That is when Reagan tripled the national debt; boy did he crank up the deficit. It is estimatedthat most of our current deficit is dueto Reagan and Bush II. He never balanced a budget...spent like a drunken sailor actually enough to bankrupt Russia plus truthfully also the United States.
        Marginal tax rate under Reagan 50%. Helped create the Taliban and Osama bin Laden. Disregarded the Volker Act. Federal government grew at the rate of 2.5% per year. Gave amnesty to 3 million illegal immigrants.

        Glad you too remember Jean. Nobody said those times were perfect but what you fail to understand is current deficit spending is piling on, more folks are on government assistance today than ever! Minority unemployment is astronomical TODAY! You complain about the GOP and excuse the Dems! Nice!

        As far as Reagan never balacing a budget, when was the last time Obama even produced one that made it through Congress? His own party rejected him! That speaks volumes!

        Btw Jean, since you whine about the dump Bush left Obama, Reagan was left a dump by Carter. You remember Reagan calling a press conference to cry about it?

      • jean2009

        Actually Steveo
        Had the Volker Act policies under Carter been continued....just like if the policies of Bill Clinton had been continued under Bush II the deficit wouldn't have grown 3 times under Reagan....facts are trickle down doesn't work.

        @Steveo Actually Carter was a better president than Reagan and Bush...and if we had followed his lead on alternative fuels research we would today be a lot further along toward energy efficiency than we are.

        now Jean...referencing this hatchet piece is even below you...are you the desperate to dig up trash on Mitt Romney? My great great grandfather was mormon and had two wives like Mitts did...now is that my problem? Next to Mr Romney obama looks like the person he is...a political opportunist without moral or ethical compass and nothing you can reference or say will change that. obama does not have the resume, vision, or ethics to be president...he is a failed political experiment that will set back minorities in this country 40 years....you see we all know who is racist and it isn't the political right..o'barry proved it.

        ... and Obama is related to slave holders. How far back do you want to dig Jean? Liberals have lost the argument on the economy, all they have left is to talk about Gov. Romney's family.

        Yeah, lets talk about Mitt's family. Like his wife's dancing horse hobby that they took a $77,000.00 tax deduction for. And the Blind Trust in his wife's name. You know, the kind Mitt says is an old age ruse you use to hide your money when running for political office.

        Cynthia L,

        Yes! Too bad that deduction was illegal, or was it?

        LOL! Jerry...a hatchet job really?
        A hatchet job about Mitt Romney in Murdoch's New York Times? Do you really want people to buy that? I am not talking about Mitt's grandfather...I am talking about Mitt taking responsibility for his own previous actions...and my take on why I think Mr. Romney doesn't have the necessary character qualities I want in a President.
        I don't want a president who goes all out to get his own draft deferment while at the same time picketing the people who will be required to go die in his place.
        I want a president who believes enough in America to invest his money here not dodge taxes with off-shore bank accounts.
        I want a president who doesn't propose and pass a health care plan when he was governor and disavows it when he is running for president.
        I want a candidate who can explain how anyone retroactivally retires as CEO, when it is discovered his name was still as the owner and CEO on the company documents filed with the SEC 3 years after he left
        To me those traits spell a self-center, lacking in self accountability, flip-flopping opportunist.

        Would you rather have the same reveiw on Mr. Romney from another source? How about the Salt Lake Tribune?
