8. He tried to get out
And he won't admit it, that's the part that bothers me. Didn't this come up in the debate, I don't remember. But at some point this week it came up and he said, again, that he went and got his physical and they rejected him. That's just not true. He intentionally got a letter from his doctor, took it to the draft board early, and tried to get out of Vietnam. He needs to tell the truth about it.

And my problem with him about it all is that he skied through the sixties. Every other candidate was involved in some sort of activist movement or serving this country in some way. Howard skied.
