Ann Romney: “Military Service, Mormon Missionary Service — Tomato, Tomahto”

Neither Mitt Romney nor any of the five mini-Mitts have ever served in the military.  But all six of them have performed missionary service for the Mormon Church.  And Ann Romney says that’s the same thing.  Enlisting in the Armed Forces and possibly getting killed or maimed in Iraq or Afghanistan, and being a Mormon missionary in Paris:  Ann Romney says these are just “different ways of serving.”

Ann Romney said this yesterday on ABC’s “The View.”  Ann and Mitt were originally scheduled to appear together on the show, but Mittens chickened out at the last minute.  Er, I mean, he had a “scheduling conflict.”

As Howard Kurtz said:  “How is he [Romney] going to negotiate with Vladimir Putin if he’s afraid of sitting down with Whoopi Goldberg?”

Good question.  Anyway, regarding the similarities between military and missionary service, Ann Romney told Whoopi Goldberg:

“Mitt was serving his mission, and my five sons have also served missions. None served in the military…So, you know, we find different ways of serving.”

Ah yes, just different ways of serving.  Let’s play a little guessing game, shall we?  Click on this picture of flag-draped coffins.

Now:  How many of these people were soldiers killed in Iraq or Afghanistan; and how many of them were Mormon missionaries killed in Paris?

"We find different ways of serving."

Equating military service with religious service? Listen up, folks! A Mormon theocracy may be on the horizon.

I'd cancel too rather then hearing Joy Behar's constant screeching!

Besides didn't Mitt serve in the same National Guard Unit as Dan Quayle?

There really is a pervasive shallowness to the Romneys, along with self-centeredness.

Jess: Excellent presentation. The Romneys stuttering and nervous-laughing when things get tense, O'Donnell's challenge to Taggart Romney -- I enjoyed it all. Thanks.

Jerry: A Mormon theocracy -- how many wives would each guy be required to have?

Anonymous: Agreed.

Erik: Mitt in the National Guard? I doubt it. He's worse than Quayle.

SW: Shallow and self-centered, among other attributes.
