I listen to the show Morning Joe every morning. In my opinion, Joe Scarborough is the biggest campaigner for the Obama on television. Every single time he gives a reason why his candidate, Mitt Romney, is not able to get traction in this presidential race he is pointing out why we cannot elect Mitt Romney as President. Scarborough has made the following points over and over:
- Romney runs from who is
- Romney cannot express his ideas
- Romney cannot sell his candidacy
I don’t think I have heard the Scarborough mention Romney’s supporting the Vietnam War while evading the draft. That was big news yesterday, and I don’t think that was mentioned this morning...yet—the show is not quite over and I gotta go to work. I didn’t hear Newt Gingrich mentioning it either. Perhaps, because it is the one thing no American can defend. There are some who can defend draft dodgers. There are some who can defend those who didn’t participate because of their religion. There are some who can defend those who simply objected to the war. But, who could defend someone who supported the Vietnam draft and spent most of the war period in France?
Call it Romney bashing or call it fact—its one in the same.
