    Would pro war officials send their children to die in Iraq?

    That appears to be a question the US media is increasingly asking, according to this piece, from the Editor and Publisher:

    Gov. Mitt Romney of Massachusetts, a strong backer of Bush policy in Iraq -- who has give sons age 24 to 35 -- heard the query yesterday, from a Boston Herald reporter. Romney, who has promoted National Guard recruitment, replied, a bit angrily, that he has not urged his own sons to enlist -- and isn't sure whether they would. The Herald tossed the question as Romney as he was honored by the Massachusetts National Guard. "No, I have not urged my own children to enlist. I don't know the status of my childrens' potentially enlisting in the Guard and Reserve," Romney said, his voice tinged with anger, the Herald reported.
    If these politicians aren't willing to send their own children to die in Iraq, then they shouldn't expect others to send theirs. See all recent "A Logical Voice" posts
