    JFK lost his older brother Joe in WW2. I'm not to sure abut Bobby's and Teddy's service. PT109, still a good movie to watch.

    If being in the military were the litmus test on whether or not someone was qualified to be President then John McCain would be POTUS not BHO....I sure as heck didnt want Colin Powell or Wesley Clark as our President, now Stormin Norman S might have been one heck of a POTUS

    Romney was born on March 12, 1947. When the draft was changed to the lottery, his birth year was included in the first lottery. His drawn number was 300 of of 366. The highest lottery number that was called to service during Romney's year was 195. In short, all the talk about Romney avoiding the draft is codswallop.

    Now on the subject of Ron Paul. Representative Paul got a government grant(!) to attend medical school. Upon completion, he appears to have entered the USAF under what was called the Berry plan. What was required of him was 2 years of active service and 3 years of guard or reserve or 3 years of active service. His was a 2 year active stint. As I recall, no, repeat, no physician entering the USAF as a 2 year Berry plan doc went to VN. Some 3 year folks did but not the two year ones. Heck, it took the first two year tour to learn they couldn't salute with the left hand. Seriously, taking physicians into the Air Force was a major "socialization" problem. It took two years to get that accomplished and to get the ascension (grant, travel, and training) costs covered.

    Didn't Clinton actively avoid the service by some chicanery regarding the ROTC at U of Ark.

    So buzz posts a LIE, knows its a LIE, but keeps the post up. Super classy there buzz. I have zero respect for people like you. Then there are people like poor Murral that can't comprehend that it is a LIE and keep repeating it as true.
    Typical dim debate techniques. Can't win so you just keep making shit up to fit your agenda until the sheeple get in line behind you.

    Yes he did, he took a College deferment, it was a major focus during the election, just Google "Clinton draft dodger" and you'll get about 12,000 hits.

    I remember years ago, in a very similar case when 'Joe S' "quoted" a couple of his moron minions and replied......"Your not helping". I can only assume an educated Buzz must enjoy the fact he can post a lie and then watch a couple of fools run with the baton.

    Rhetorical? I think we all know the answer to that.

    You guys should have figured out by now that when you call these foolish, hypocritical, left-wing nut-jobs out they run and hide. They seldom answer any question with a rational response.
