    Here’s the distinction that I think you’re missing. Back in the late 60′s, men of Mitt Romney’s age were being drafted. They went to Vietnam whether they wanted to or not. It was their duty. It was the law. Mitt Romney exploited loopholes in that law in order to avoid that solemn duty, including using his connections within the Mormon Church. He spent three years living it up in a mansion in the south of France, while other men of his age went off to die in French Indochina. He cheer-leaded the war from sidelines while young men who didn’t have the means to dodge the draft did the actual dying.

    By the time Barack Obama was old enough to enlist, the draft had long been abandoned. For better or worse, it was then, as it is now, no longer the duty of young men to fight in America’s wars. Enlistment has become a choice. Unlike Mitt Romney during the Vietnam War who was in his early twenties, Obama would have been thirty going on thirty-one during the time of the Gulf War. The choice to go to war at that age is far more difficult than it is at twenty or twenty-one. I don’t know and you don’t know and perhaps even Barack Obama himself doesn’t know whether he would have dodged the draft like Mitt did had it still been in effect in the 80′s.

    I think it’s pretty clear that Mitt Romney believes that it was not his place nor the place of his sons to fight in America’s wars. That obligation belongs to lesser men; brave, but expendable. The Romneys’ place is to cheer-lead at opportune times and then to ignore.

    I imagine Andrew Breitbart as more of Ser Dontos-type character, except without any of the chivalry.
