Romney, lifetime hunter--NOT

o hear Mitt Romney talk on the campaign trail, you might think the Republican presidential candidate had a gun rack in the back of his pickup truck.

"I purchased a gun when I was a young man. I've been a hunter pretty much all my life," he said this week in Keene, N.H., to a man sporting a National Rifle Association cap.

"I purchased a gun when I was a young man. I've been a hunter pretty much all my life," he said this week in Keene, N.H., to a man sporting a National Rifle Association cap.

Yet the former Massachusetts governor's hunting experience is limited to two trips at the bookends of his 60 years: as a 15-year-old, when he hunted rabbits with his cousins on a ranch in Idaho, and last year, when he shot quail on a fenced game preserve in Georgia.


Romney did buy a lifetime membership in the NRA last August as part of an effort to obscure his history of being pro-gun control

Romney's father was considered to be a leading GOP Presidential contender in 1968 until he broke with LBJ's Vietnam policy and used an unfortunate expression, saying he had been brain-washed. Seems to me, that Mitt is trying to brainwash the Republican electorate.
