Yes, it is a lie but why did he had FOUR deferments to go to Vietnam?

Romney did say the phrase that he was too important to go to Vietnam during an interview. This was a press event where he was questioned about his support for U.S.A military involvement in other countries.

False, according to Snopes. This comes from a satirical FreeWood post, not designed to be truthful. The report's satirical context is here: http://www.freewoodpost.com/2012/06/07/mitt-romney-i-was-too-important-to-go-to-vietnam/

Yes, it is a lie and I'm not sure who else beside the writer asked it-- but-- why did he have FOUR deferrments?
Report as
He was on religious work for 3 years. The last deferment was for education.
Report as
Regardless, he had 4 deferments

Available to all for same reason. I had one deferment durin the same time and had 3 high draft numbers, so I served 1977-1997.

Three for being on a 3 year Mormon mission, one for education.

As did Bill Clinton, Joe Biden, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Al Franken, Al Gore, Muhammad Ali, Howard Dean, Bruce Springsteen, Henry Waxman et al.
Why is it wrong that he was deferred and the others are allowed. You can't have it both ways. Here's the link.
