Yet again Hopey making up lies.

Yes the did ride horses into battle.

Monument honors U.S. 'horse soldiers' who invaded Afghanistan

The U.S. special operations teams that led the American invasion in Afghanistan a decade ago did something that no American military had done since the last century: ride horses into combat.


But despite what President Obama might suggest, both are still used as tools of battle to this day.

Well as long as we are debating who really knows the military, Fox for some reason overlooked this nugget

Romney made the sort of mistake that makes Marines cringe: early on in the debate, he called our troops overseas “soldiers.” That drives Marines up a wall. The Army consists of soldiers. The Marine Corps consists of Marines. Both exist under the umbrella of American troops or forces serving overseas. This distinction has been so noxious to the Army that in recent years, it has capitalized its troops — Soldiers — to match the Marine code. I would guess that Fox News may have gotten a few e-mails about that, unmentioned by Fox.

This may seem petty, but it is part of the other-than-reality-based world of RushFoxland

http://swampland.time.com/2012/10/22...fect-symmetry/

And there is this

After saying in an interview during his failed bid to unseat Senator Edward M. Kennedy of Massachusetts in 1994 that he had no interest in military service as a youth, Mr. Romney said in 2007 during his first run for the Republican presidential nomination that he had sometimes longed to join the troops in Vietnam.

At Stanford, Mr. Romney was exempt from the draft, holding the 2-S student deferment then given to most undergraduates. He kept it but one year; like his older brother, Scott, Mr. Romney left Stanford early to serve for 30 months as a missionary abroad, as is customary for devout Mormon men.

During that period in France, from 1966 to 1968, he held another draft exemption as a missionary — a controversial one, as critics complained that it disproportionately excluded Mormon men from service.


The Selective Service eventually limited church districts to one religious deferment every six months, sharply reducing draft exemptions in Utah. But in Michigan, where Mr. Romney grew up, the small Mormon population made it unlikely that others competed for the mission that Mr. Romney accepted, said Barry Mayo, a counselor at the time to the district bishop. (After returning from France, Mr. Romney transferred to Brigham Young University and again secured a student deferment.)

HIgh above the Alps my Gnome has heard that Donald Trump will announce that he has unearthed divorce papers between the Prez and his wife.


https://twitter.com/DougKass/status/260765577713418240

This isn't the first time the divorce rumor has reared its head during the campaign. Unbiased newsman Ed Klein wrote in his most recent book, The Amateur, that during a rough patch in the Obama marriage in 2000, Michelle Obama "actually had divorce papers drawn up."

So "Vincent" - are you really Donald Trump?

Obama wasn't the one claiming he often thought of serving in Vietnam while rolling up the student deferments

My point is that the GOP talks a tough game about supporting the military and had great fun about Clinton being a draft dodger but its leadership that had a chance to serve in the military took a pass - in addition to Romney being indifferent to serving in Vietnam before he suddenly remembered he longed to serve around the time he was ramping up his 2008 campaign for President we had known tough guy Dick Cheney

Cheney's Five Draft Deferments During the Vietnam Era Emerge as a Campaign Issue

Mr. Cheney this week again questioned the credentials of Senator John Kerry and his ability to be commander in chief. Mr. Kerry, who was decorated in Vietnam and has made his service there a central element of his campaign, fired back.

Putting Mr. Cheney's record in the spotlight, Mr. Kerry said that he "got every deferment in the world and decided he had better things to do."

[cheney] told the Washington Post that he had sought his deferments because "I had other priorities in the 60's than military service."

If you are going to talk the talk then walk the walk - otherwise these chicken hawks
should have a cup of STFU rather than prance around and claim their selfless devotion to the military which they regard as the hired help
