Where Have All the Swift Boaters Gone?

by Norman Horowitz

In consideration of the grief that the Right gave John Kerry concerning his military service, I offer the following:

Mitt Romney has never served in the military.

Before joining college, Romney had received a deferment from the draft as a Mormon ‘minister of religion’ for the duration of his missionary work in France, which lasted two and a half years. At the time, there was an agreement of sorts between the church and the Selective Service allowing exemptions from the draft for missionaries. Before and after his missionary deferment, Romney also received nearly three years of deferments for his academic studies.

In April 1965, Romney registered with the Selective Service but was not considered readily available for military service until December 1970. When he became eligible for military service in 1970, he drew a high number in the annual draft lottery and at that time no one drawing higher than 195 was drafted.

I can only wonder if Romney became a missionary in France in order to avoid military service.

I have never heard a peep from anyone about this.

NOT ONE SINGLE WORD!

I must ask those from the Right: What did you all have to say when the Swift Boat people tried to vilify a genuine American war hero John Kerry? And what are you now saying about Mitt Romney who, though he probably didn’t break any law, managed to avoid military service?

I have no problem that Romney did what he did. However: Where have the Swift Boaters gone?

Sarah Palin and Froot Loops

by Norman Horowitz

Almost all Americans are familiar with Sarah Palin (SP) and Froot Loops (FLs), but not everyone notices the similarities:

  • Both SP and FLs are good to look at.
  • Both SP and FLs come in a variety of colors.
  • Both SP and FL’s look sweet but have little “nutritional value.”

SP was and is a fanatic supporting “drill, baby, drill.” FLs (and Kellogg’s) are, I gather, silent on this issue.

SP continues her rants in support of big oil and regularly repeats this in paid speeches.

Glibness is easy. Specificity, not so easy.

Taking cheap shots at the President is also easy. Creating alternative economic policies for the country is not so easy.

SP is still a very young woman who has (for whatever reason) captured the “hearts” of many Americans; however, in my view, she will never capture those who as a rule do not consider eating FLs. I’d prefer some granola, oatmeal, or Cream of Wheat.

Bottom line: Had either Al Gore (AG) or John Kerry (JK) been elected President  our dependence on foreign oil would have been reduced. AG has spent a lifetime warning about the polluting and economic dangers of dependence on foreign oil. JK is battling today to wage war against climate change and unshackle the potential of new energy sources. They were right all along. They should have been heard long ago. They should be heeded today.
