CNN Tells Of Harrowing Dangers Mitt Romney Faced In 1968 France (While Avoiding The Vietnam War)
Perhaps you thought Mitt Romney's time in France, in 1968, while raking in Dick Cheney-level numbers of military deferments from serving in Vietnam, was all sunshine and brie. Well CNN's "Romney Revealed" has another think coming at you! “In 1968, France was a dangerous place to be for a 21-year-old American, but Mitt Romney was right in the middle of it," says Gloria Borger. You guys, there were "protests, and there were marches"! There weren't napalmings or burning villages or fraggings or snipers, but there were definitely marches!
Tommy Christopher at Mediaite watched so we wouldn't have to:
[S]ays fellow Romney missionary Mike Bush, “There was no train service, there were no buses, no newspapers. The electricity would go off from time-to-time.”
“There were no letters from home,” Bush continues. “The money at the time came via check. That was our lifeline was getting letters from home.”
You guys, while other people's sons were killing and being killed, governor's son MITT ROMNEY HAD TO WAIT FOR HIS MONEY VIA CHECK. And people say Mitt Romney doesn't understand the plight of the common man.
