I'm not saying I agree with Bannon (much less Roy Moore) on much of anything, but I thought Bannon's criticism of Mitt Romney for going on an LDS mission to avoid Vietnam war was a topic worth discussing here. Quoting from http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/steve-bannon-set-join-roy-moore-alabama-rally/story?id=51586835
"But Bannon saved perhaps his more stinging attack for former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, who he accused of hiding behind his religion to avoid service in the Vietnam War."
"'Judge Moore served his country in one of the toughest wars we've ever had, Vietnam,' Bannon said, 'Mitt, that's honor and integrity, and by the way Mitt, while we're on the subject of Vietnam and honor and integrity, you avoided service brother. Ok Mitt, here's how it is brother, the college deferments that's we can debate that, but you hid behind your religion. You went to France to be a missionary while guys were dying in rice patties in Vietnam. Do not talk to me about honor and integrity.'"
I'm a little confused by the attack though. Has Mitt come out against Roy Moore?
In any case, it's interesting to see how outsiders (to the Morg) view the issue.
