Ann Romney Has Most Certainly Worried About Her Boys Overseas

miitary serviceWhile completely ignoring President Obama’s lack of U.S. military experience, critics are bashing Mitt and Ann Romney for never having sent any of their five sons into military service.

This is not a new attack on the Romney’s, and it’s just as tiresome as ever. Mitt Romney has never had anything but high praise for the men and women that serve our country, and he has respected his sons’ decisions to choose their own life paths. What would the liberal media have him do, dictate to his children that they must enter the service because he might decide to run for president someday and it would look good on his resume?

I won't touch the recent flap-up about whether she has ever worked a day in her life. But I can say with certainty that Ann Romney has never worried a day in her life. That is, she has never worried about the safety of her children fighting overseas.

Obviously she have any children of her own, because she seems unaware that all mothers worry over the health, safety, and well-being of their children. There’s a saying that being a mother is like watching a piece of your heart walk around outside of your body, and every mom reading this right now is nodding her head in agreement.

To say that Ann Romney has never worried over her boys is not only insulting to her personally, to all moms in general, but specifically to moms of missionaries. All five Romney boys served missions for the LDS church, as did their father Mitt. I’m sure their parents never worried over their children in foreign countries, sharing their faith with strangers and facing religious persecution and discrimination on a day-to-day basis.

Did you know that Mormon missionaries are only allowed to call home twice a year? They get to talk to their parents on Christmas and Mother’s Day. Of course Ann Romney didn’t worry at all being practically incommunicado for two years with each son as he served his mission overseas. (Insert eye roll here.) 

The idea that Mitt Romney can’t possibly be Commander-in-Chief of the armed forces because he doesn’t know what it’s like to serve in the military, or have a child serve in the military, is not only asinine, it’s hypocritical. Or maybe I missed President Obama’s service records.
