Let's see here. The president-- going back over two decades now-- has routinely admitted to past drug use as a teenager and college student. Something about half of all people have done themselves. It's also extremely well known he spent time in a foreign country as a child, a situation in which he had no control because he was after all a child. This means he needs to learn to be American?
As a child Willard Romney grew up wealthy, the son of a longtime politician. As a teen and college student, he simultaneously spent his days cheering on the war in Vietnam and dodging the draft. When he was of prime fighting age, and during a time when his country needed him the most, he fled to France and spent his days living in a mansion valued today at $12 million.
Here's how fellow Mittens Mormon described the French estate:
Although he spent time in other French cities, for most of 1968, Mr Romney lived in the Mission Home, a 19th century neoclassical building in the French capital’s chic 16th arrondissement. “It was a house built by and for rich people,” said Richard Anderson, the son of the mission president at the time of Mr Romney’s stay. “I would describe it as a palace”.The only thing Republicans hate worse than Democrats are the French. Does the Romney Campaign really want to talk about time spent as a youth and who is more American?
