John McCain: He Served and Leads - Mitt Regrets.

Mitt sent his Regrets - One of the two Regrets in his life - what was the other one?

6. a note expressing regret at one's inability to accept an invitation: I have had four acceptances and one regret.

Regrets - I had a few but then again Too few to mention , but Hell I never had more than two nickles to rub together. If I had Mitts dough I'd have Regrets A'Plenty!

Regrets came close on the heels of an action. Mitt, regrets to inform the American People that Senators are just legislators and not Leaders! I suppose this could be considered Mitt-picking, but:

But, then he did his patented "Charles Foster Kane!!!!" -

This part was a doozey!

I do believe that as people over the centuries have considered who ought to lead our country, they don't look to senators. They look to governors. And they look to governors because they have the experience of being executive leaders.

They're actually leading something. They're making something happening. They're running something. They're leading an organization.

Senators and congressmen are fine people, but they're legislators. They sit in committees. They're committee chairs. And they call that leadership.

Yeah, Mitt - Harry Truman - Senator; JFK - Senator; JBJ- Senator; Gerald R. Ford - U.S. Congressman!

More Regrets from the conclusion of the debate by Mitt:

Military Service - Mitt Romeny Regrets He will be Unable to Attend!

VANDEHEI: Let's turn that around. Even today, Rudy Giuliani endorsed John McCain and said that there would be no better commander- in-chief. What makes you more qualified than John McCain to run the military as commander-in-chief?

ROMNEY: You know, I'm sure that are those who'd say, you know, to be the commander-in-chief you have to serve in the military. And one of the two great regrets I have in life is I didn't serve in the military. I'd love to have.

But I don't believe that you have to have served in the military to be a great commander-in-chief or to be a great foreign policy expert. I think you're going to see in our foreign policy and in the military, we're going to face challenges not like the challenges of old, where I'd liken it to playing checkers with the red side and the black side.

Did Mitt actually try -actively - to enter military service? I know I did not.
I did not get drafted! I am thrilled not to have been drafted, but I am as Yellow as a Duck's Foot!

Mitt said that a military background does not preclude being Commander in Chief - true enough.

Regrets - Tell that to Miss Otis.

Reminds me of 'some of my best friends are negroes'.

Both vaccuuos, fatuous, unctous, specious, hollow and patronizing.

Which sums up Mitt Romney rather nicely.

As a Vietnam vet, had I ever intended on voting for Romney, that single statement alone would've insured my vote for McCain.
