Lawrence O'Donnell gives us “Another Episode of When Republican Draft Dodgers Run for President”
After taking a shot at Mitt Romney last week for his “evolving” comments on the Vietnam war, O'Donnell took another bite at the apple with Romney's supposed support for the war while obtaining one deferment after the other to avoid actually serving there. This week it was for “utter, nonsensical, gibberish we heard from Romney while out on the campaign trail in Ohio.
ROMNEY: I noticed there weren't as many second World War vets as there used to be at memorial days when I was younger and they're a little older. They can't hold the torch quite as high as they used to. That torch is now going to have be seized by us, by our generations. It's a torch of freedom and hope and opportunity. It's not America 's torch. But it's America 's duty and honor to hold that torch high so it can be seen by the world.
