True Class Warrior: What Mitt Romney's draft dodging really means
An old photograph of Mitt Romney has surfaced and I understand why people are disgusted by it. From 1966, it shows the GOP presidential front-runner joining a group of students at Stanford University in a counter-protest of anti-war demonstrators. Romney supported the expansion of the Vietnam War before he avoided the draft on the grounds that he was a Mormon missionary. Like George W. Bush and Dick Cheney, Romney is a rich man who loves war as long as someone else is dying.
