Romney: My Sons Show Patriotism By "Helping Me Get Elected"
Not to be accused of fathering chickenhawks, Mitt Romney has publicly defended his sons' decision not to serve in the military. The strapping young Romneys (ages 26-37) have a more patriotic duty at hand--and it's not continuing their father's Vietnam-era missionary work. Ben, Craig, Josh, Matt, and, um, Tagg, are dutifully doing what Giuliani only dreams his wayward offspring would do: "helping me get elected."
The Five Brothers, as they are known on the Romney campaign website, post sunny dispatches from across the land, where they are traveling in "the famous Mitt Mobile" (it's a Winnebago), to busily preach the gospel of Dad.
Not that it's all work work work all the time. A recent post by Josh expressed excitement over the butter cow and other attractions at the Iowa state fair.
"From what I hear you can get any sort of deep fried treat you'd like at the fair," he adds. "I'm hoping for a Snickers."
Kind of like the troops!
