A Bad Answer To A Stupid Question

Via just about everyone, comes this, on the campaign trail with Mitt Romney:

Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney on Wednesday defended his five sons’ decision not to enlist in the military, saying they’re showing their support for the country by “helping me get elected.”

Call that whatever you want, but if it’s not the definition of asinine, I don’t know what is. The woman who asked the question, the name of the organization she was identified with raises a huge red flag, but still I can’t help but agree with what she said later:

The woman who asked the question, Rachel Griffiths, 41, of Milan, Ill., identified herself as a member of Quad City Progressive Action for the Common Good, as well as the sister of an Army major who had served in Iraq.

“Of course not,” Griffiths said when asked if she was satisfied with Romney’s answer. “He told me the way his son shows support for our military and our nation is to buy a Winnebago and ride across Iowa and help him get elected.”

Progressive Action for the Common Good…I think that pretty much says it all. But as for Romney’s sons thinking he’d make a great president, well, there are more of a few of us in the Republican base who beg to differ and think that his sons are indeed NOT doing the country any kind of good — on the contrary. It would seem that in addition to being a panderer, who will do or say just about anything to get elected (click here), Romney’s a bit of a narcissist. I read a comment somewhere that that particular remark from Romney sounded like something John Kerry would say, and that sounds about right to me. He’s just one more RINO that needs to just mosey on back to his lefty refuge.
