A friend of fallen former SEAL Glen Doherty describes Mitt's shameless pandering (I know, I know...he panders as easily as he breathes.)
Elf Ellefsen met Glen Doherty skiing in Utah when he was 19, and the two men remained friends for more than 20 years.http://mynorthwest.com/...
"A guy living life wise beyond his years. Always trying to be progressive as well as do the right thing. Always challenging himself to his greatest ability," Ellefsen remembered.
He last saw Doherty a week before the final mission to Libya. "I stayed in his house (in California), we paddled out in the ocean together, spent some good quality time."
Ellefsen said Doherty recalled meeting Mitt Romney years ago, but the account was much different from what the Presidential candidate retold in Iowa.
According to Ellefsen, Romney introduced himself to Doherty four separate times during the gathering.
"He said it was very comical," Ellefsen said, "Mitt Romney approached him ultimately four times, using this private gathering as a political venture to further his image. He kept introducing himself as Mitt Romney, a political figure. The same introduction, the same opening line. Glen believed it to be very insincere and stale."
Ellefsen said Doherty remembered Romney as robotic.
"He said it was pathetic and comical to have the same person come up to you within only a half hour, have this person reintroduce himself to you, having absolutely no idea whatsoever that he just did this 20 minutes ago, and did not even recognize Glen's face."
Ellefsen described Glen Doherty as a humble, non-political guy, and said it was ironic for him to be used during a presidential campaign.
Well, Glen's mother Barbara has caught wind of Willard's shameless, decrepit exploitation of her son's death, and she is none too pleased.
"I don't trust Romney. He shouldn't make my son's death part of his political agenda. It's wrong to use these brave young men, who wanted freedom for all, to degrade Obama."http://www.kpbs.org/...
Remember, folks, this is the same Mitt Romney who demonstrated in favor of the Vietnam draft, and then sped off to France to live in castles and carve love hearts in the sand while his Non-Fortunate Son contemporaries (including my father) did their patriotic duty and served their country during that contemptible time. The same Mitt Romney who couldn't bother even a solitary throwaway line to recognize the troops at war in his GOP acceptance speech.
This man, and I use the word "man" loosely, lacks the character to even be within 100 miles of the White House, let alone living in it. He's banking on stupidity and ignorance. Don't let the bastard get away with it.
Any draft dodger willing to exploit dead soldiers deserves a special place in hell.
