Hey! Military Recruiters! I've found some recruits for ya!
Jenna Bush, age 23 (Dad W is war criminal in chief who sacrifices other peoples children)

Barbara Bush, age 23 (ditto)

Chelsea Clinton, about age 25 (Mom Hillary voted for the war)

Emma Bloomberg, age 26 (Repug Dad Mayor Mike refused to denounce the war)

Jessica Schumer, age about 21 (NY Dem Sen Chuck Schumer also voted for the war)

Any others?

BTW, FDR had four (four!) sons on active duty in WWII. Lincoln's son Robert left Harvard to join Gen. Grant's staff. Eisenhower's son was on active duty in both WWII and Korea.

Oh, and BTW, Al Gore Jr., son of Sen. Al Gore Sr., enlisted in 1969, and served in Vietnam. Although he had a non-combat position, when he is eventually rightfully elected President, he will become the lowest ranking soldier ever to occupy the White House -- the first grunt president.

4. Mitt Romney's little shits
Gov. Mitt Romney, who has comforted the grieving loved ones of soldiers killed in Iraq and promoted National Guard recruitment, yesterday said he has not urged his own sons to enlist - and isn't sure whether they would.

The Herald posed the question as Romney - a potential 2008 White House contender and backer of President Bush's Iraq policy -was honored by the Massachusetts National Guard after he signed a bill extending pay for state workers on active duty.

``No, I have not urged my own children to enlist.I don't know the status of my childrens' potentially enlisting in the Guard and Reserve,`` Romney said, his voice tinged with anger.


Massachusetts residents can enlist in the National Guard up to age 39.Romney's five sons range in age from 24 to 35. Neither the Romney children nor the governor have served in the military, Romney spokeswoman Julie Teer said.

....

``I don't think you should be so `rah-rah' for a war that you aren't willing to send your own family members to,'' said Rose Gonzalez, 30, of Somerville, whose mother, a state employee, was deployed to Iraq in January.``If he thinks the war is so just and so important and we shouldn't pull out, then he should encourage his own sons to go.``

Remember to mention Romney's sons, Ben, Craig, Tagga, to the recuiters went they hassle your children to enlist.

6. I guess I'm pissed off today because my idiot nephew enlisted ...
and shipped off yesterday for basic training. The lying ass recruiter told him he only has a 40 percent chance of being sent to Iraq.

I wish the first the question that every talking head asks every stinking politicianwith draft age children -- especially each one that supports the war -- is "has your son/daughter enliseted and have you urged them to enslist?"

9. Thanks .. his mother has been crying hysterically
He was in his first year of college on a football scholarship and had trouble adjusting and took a leave. I think he just felt so bad and that he had to do something to "redeem" himself, that he enlisted. It was so boneheaded, everyone was furious with him.

I just know they are going to send him to Iraq.
