Virginia has a heavy military presence so it's hard to fathom why they would ever consider voting for a draft dodger. Romney spent Vietnam hiding out in France eating baguettes. His 5 sons have never served either. Mitt claims "they're serving their country by helping to get me elected." Seriously?!
So a candidate who's family has no military service wants to be Commander-In-Chief.

It makes no sense that Virginia is taking him seriously at all. What is going on in this world??
