Mittens rode a sissy bicycle in France during the Vietnam War

Mitt Romney, pictured at left in 1968, told supporters he had experienced austerity using a bucket for a lavatory and a hose for a shower

Mitt Romney actually lived in a mansion while he was in France in 1966 to 1968 . 

The Daily Telegraph reported that Mittens lived in a  “palace"

It featured stained glass windows, chandeliers, and an extensive art collection. It was staffed by two servants – a Spanish chef and a houseboy.

Although he spent time in other French cities, for most of 1968, Mr Romney lived in the Mission Home, a 19th century neoclassical building in the French capital’s chic 16th arrondissement. 'It was a house built by and for rich people,' said Richard Anderson, the son of the mission president at the time of Mr Romney’s stay. 'I would describe it as a palace'.
Mitt Romney fully supported the Vietnam War but got four draft deferments to avoid it. 

While real Americans were giving their lives in Vietnam, Mittens was riding a sissy bicycle in France!
