You know, I was going to post this.

I did not because I figured that no one would believe those numbers, or they would claim that members of the military have been brainwashed to want to support McCain.

Obviously Obama does not care what the military thinks of his chances of being the Commander in Chief or he might address that very topic when he speaks to them. That is why his support is so low among the military.

Like you've asked me before. Prove that 'Army Times' is politicaly leaning to the right! Show me another poll that proves that these figures are incorrect! I'm willing to bet that you can't!

I was coming here to post about that very thing. Its almost disgusting in terms of supporting a candidate just because hes the same skin color. I guess 12% know better though.

Find the democrat on this list.

gop.cha.house.gov...

I dont believe people are saying this is the way the election will go. I find it interesting those supporting the military stop supporting them when they disagree. The dem's have tried to suppress this vote for years.

Do you not see the irony. They will fight to register people over and over again. Fight for illegals to vote, fight for bums on the street to vote. Yet where is the fight for the exact people who defend our right to vote. Not there because there not voteing for them.

Oops!!! Hope someone will keep an eye on the Dems so they don't try to have all the military absentee ballots thrown away, like they tried to do in 2000 and 2004. You know they feel that illegals, cartoon characters, and the deceased have a higher right to vote than those who serve this country in the armed services, as displayed by the actions of their federally funded voter registration organization, ACORN. And they'll do anything to disenfranchise the members of the armed services any chance they get.

An American friend said something about this kind of thing to me a while ago, he said that all his military buddies vote Republican because under Republican governments they always get pay rises, and under Democrats they still tend to get the same number of wars, but with no pay rise, so they may as well vote for the pay rise.

Any truth on this?

Gullychief,
There may be some truth in that statement but more to the point. The last time a Democratic POTUS gave a damn about our service men and women was Kennedy. All the rest have done their level best to denude this country of its military heritage and the pride in our nations military personel! When your second or third generation military you tend not to forget this. Pay for our folks has always been a consideration but thats only a miniscule point on the map!

This is all a moot point anyway.If Obama is elected he will probably gut the funding for the armed services.Most democrat presidents have.Force numbers will dwindle down,and in case of a conflict he will have to enact a draft. Besides Obama won't need a standing army anyway.He's going to use diplomacy to diffuse any problems.

Fox News picked up this story several days ago.



It would be the same results except for Obama if you took the poll in San Fran Sicko.


And instead of Seattle it's Sickattle I suppose?

BTW, I noticed how you find it so funny that blacks support Obama..

Haha.

I find it equally funny that the majority of the military is white and they support McCain who is white.

Daddyroo,
25% reduction in military spending has many repercusions people don't realise. When this type of reduction takes place, it puts many of our most highly trained machinists out of work. The US ability to build basic tooling for things we use every day is at an alltime low. Try to find a tool maker that knows his stuff that is under the age of 55. Some companies here in the NE are going to retired toolmakers. Most of these folks are in their 70's. The tool making art is not well taught like it used to be, Aprenticetool makers are almost non-existant. Companies treat toolmakers like overhead instead of assets. They are the first to be layed off when contracts are not renewed and many are just leaving the trade out of frustration. This is a real problem, and the military industrial complex is almost the last bastion of this trade!
