lack of military service on
Only one is conservative, and four are sharp tongued and not conservative.” Proving his anxiety was a real concern of the campaign the camp cancelled his impending appearance on the show this past weekend due to scheduling issues,and sent out Ann Romney to face the battlefield alone.
Ann Romney came prepared to answer for the “sharp tongued” remark by joking, “No, he said sharp and young.” She also did her best to defend her husband policies, and the highlight of the interview was when co host Whoopi Goldberg asked Ann Romney a question on Mormonism and military service.
WHOOPI GOLDBERG: As first lady, if you get the job, it’s going to entail a lot of things, and one of those things is going to be talking to the mothers whose children are coming home in bags, you know, from wars. Now, I know I adidas originals believe that your religion doesn’t allow you to go fight.
ANN ROMNEY: No, that not correct. We have many, many adidas originals members of our faith that are serving in armed services.
GOLDBERG: Okay, um, I say that because when I read about your husband, what I had read, and maybe you can correct this is that the reason that he didn’t serve in Vietnam was because it was against the religion. That’s what we what I read.
ROMNEY: No, that not correct. He was serving his mission and you know my five sons have also served missions. So we find different ways of serving, and my five boys and my husband did serve missions, and did not serve in the military
GOLDBERG: So when you are facing these mothers whose children have not come back, how will you explain to them that your sons haven’t gone or will you talk about the missions adidas originals they have gone on?
ROMNEY: I would say it’s probably the hardest thing that a president and a first lady probably do, is to comfort those that have lost a loved one and have gone in harms way. I have seen my husband when he was governor of Massachusetts and I went with him didn go to every funeral he went to every funeral of a returning veteran, family person, and it was the hardest thing Mitt had to do.
Romney did not serve in Vietnam because he was serving his church on a two year mission in France, and none of the five Romney sons have served i adidas originals n the military. Josh responded, “That brother has slugged me a couple of times. I’m sure President Obama has nothing to worry about hard when you in this process to see your dad get beat up. There is no one you care about more than your dad than to watch him get up there and debate for Mom.”
“You really don’t like to see your dad get beat up by the media, or President Obama or whatever it is, so you take it pretty personally,” Josh added, assuring viewers that Tagg meant the statement to be “off the cuff, and I assure you he didn’t mean it.” This elicited a quick reaction from co host Joy Behar, who quipped, “I hope so.”
