I don't give a shit what Romney meant when he was talking. Execution supersedes intention. Fair or unfair, the person running for POTUS needs to always be mindful of his phrasing and choice of words. As he found out, someone is always listening/watching.
I haven't read the thread, and don't intend to, but you think that Romney was including combat soldiers in that group?
I think the young people enjoy it when I "get down," verbally, don't you?
