I ain’t voting for either one of these guys. David, I figure that you turned out a whole lots better than either one of these guys did so you must have learned something along the way. ;-)

At 22 I was recently graduated, recently married, and just starting out in the real world. We were poor as hell, but life was grand!

At 22 I had been married for 1 year. What I remember most is how much you could buy with a dollar.

degoose, you are one of the most intelligent dumb folk I’ve had the pleasure of being around. We know you are not dumb and I’m sure the folks around you aren’t either (at lease most of them). I’d say it’s where you aren’t from around “here”.... The point is – - – who the photos are of.

degoose – you entered the RAN at 15?

H-Mike – - to be president you have to have run – - If you made the comment about Romney who ran in 08 I would have agreed but that isn’t the OP.

Degoose, there is certain fixation among some Americans on people in flight suits. Others would rather prefer a former head of Harvard Law Review over a 2.3GPA student.
Two problems with the photos (am I surprised!)
1) Obama is 19 in the photo, not 22.
2) Why is C-130 transport pilot posing in front of a fighter plane.
Personally I think that posts #1 through #6, got the meaning of the photos just right.

Viktor,
I think degoose was saying she voted for that AWOL “fighter jock” George “W” Bush. You know, the fighter jock that ran AWOL to daddy so he didn’t have to go to Vietnam like the rest of us.
