Are Romney's Five Sons Gay?

News & Politics
This post, written by Howie Klein, originally appeared on Down With Tyranny!

Although Romney has flip flopped on everything else that has come up, one issue he does seem firm on is support for the occupation of Iraq and for Bush's disastrous escalation policies. When I woke up this morning, CNN seemed to be in the midst of a "Mitt Romney Day" series of mini-interviews with the slippery Mormon. Some are even calling the perpetual 4th placer "the frontrunner," because he has so much money to spend in Iowa and New Hampshire. The Mormons, a wealthy and secretive cult, will spend any amount to get one of their own in control of the White House.

This morning when CNN asked him why none of those strapping, toothy Romney brothers who he's tried to make the face of his Iowa campaign have served in the Iraq occupation he loves so much, he had a rather bizarre response: "Each of my five sons gave two years of their life to the service of their church, and I consider that service to be laudable. But I very highly value those who serve in the military. But it is a volunteer military and I hope that we keep it that way." Each of his five sons, aside from being a cult member trying to proselytize among the Maoris, Bantus, Tutsis and the French, is also a multimillionaire-- thanks to daddy's vulture-capital "investment" buy-out business-- so they don't have to "volunteer" to protect the nation-- or whatever Romney, Cheney and Bush claim our soldiers are doing in Iraq. Instead they can grow the very profitable Mormon business model which can then re-invest in candidates like... Mitt Romney.
