This is simple: A non-military veteran is a candidate or office holder who says he was in the military when he wasn’t so he’s a non-military veteran.

Kind of like a non-Indian Indian - a candidate who says she is an Indian when she isn’t.

I am a non-rich rich person, because I’m not one.

What are the rest of you because you aren’t whatever? I pinged Lazamataz, so stay tuned, I’m sure he has a long list of what he is because he isn’t.

Exactly!!

The ‘pukes’ that went to Canada have been known to claim they should have Veteran ‘status’ because they suffered just as much trauma and had to leave their families etc.

Sadly useful idiots such as B Clinton, carried their water and remember Clinton basically referred to USN/USMC/USAF enlistees as “draft dodgers” because they picked another branch of service rather than be drafted.
Even Dick Cheney (one of my favorite people) reportedly had said he had ‘better things to do’ than go to VN.

The saddest moment was when Ford initiated the granting of amnesty to Draft Dodgers and to really spit in our eyes, todays Pols named a ship in his honor.

I can imagine if and when the D’s take complete control again the naming of ships for Clinton, Frank and Obama among other damnable people.

QUANTICO, Va. -- A Marine Corps sergeant was sentenced Wednesday to 18 months confinement and fined $25,000 for pretending to be an injured war hero to get free seats at rock concerts and professional sporting events

and then there's this guy, also an Obama supporter:

I’m no fan of Ford, but I think it was Carter who granted amnesty to the draft dodgers who went to Canada.

the new poll shows that Romney’s male advantage may be attributed to his lead among veterans, given that one in four men in the United States have served in the military. When taking into account only non-veteran men, Obama and Romney are essentially tied, the poll shows.

Among non-veterans overall (both men and women), however, Obama holds a four-percentage point advantage, 48%-44%, over his Republican rival.

That is what he said. I know what he meant. He meant non-veterans. He was standing outside and sweating pretty badly, so maybe the heat was just getting to him.

Ford started the ball rolling and Clinton made it one of his first signings when he took over.

If I remember correctly he brought up the idea during a debate and started pushing it, writing legislature and WJC signed it into law....probably figured between the bums and their families it would push him over the top.

If Obama has a voted edge with them they can’t be to bright.

I would consider using that term for civilian family members of the military veterans. This can’t be who he was think of because they would tend to against Obama.

"That is what he said. ?????

You WROTE "Obama has a lead over Romney with non-military veterans"

The reporter did not SPEAK with a hyphen, you decided/interpreted where to put the hyphen in your transcription.

As I replied he could have meant it as "non military-veterans."

"What is a non military vet?"

I don't know about today, but about 40 years ago, they were many of the TRAITOROUS, Bottom-Feeding, Rat-Bas-Turd, Snake, (John "F'n" Kerry's) so called "Witnesses" from which he purportedly received accounts of their having witnessed or participated in "attrocities" and/or "war crimes" while serving in Nam.....

KerrySenate

....EXCEPT, it was later learned that MOST of those phony, lying, POS, scumbags, had either never served in Vietnam or even been in the Military.

Yeah, these DESPICABLE, Leftist Tools would support and vote for Dear Leader.

No, that’s not what he meant. The pollster said it was non-veterans, and that who was polled. It was purely a slip of the toungue.
