The exit polls will prove her wrong. I doubt that Mr. Obama gets 10% of the non-black military/veteran vote.

The Left doesn't seem to realize it, but they've been accusing me of judging people by their skin color for far too long. They've shot themselves in the foot.

I do not vote for blacks.
I do not hire blacks.
I would not buy a house next to blacks.
I would not want to sell my house to blacks.

I was a very different person 4 years ago. Now I'm all done. If the KKK comes to my door, I'd probably sign up.

Nice going Barack!

Or maybe because they resent being chucked under the bus and being called “bumps in the road”.

I wish the left would make up its mind. Either the Military is mostly white and racist, so it won't vote for the big O. Or we need a draft as most of the Military is poor blacks who join as they can't find a job, and the draft would make it fair. I mean really are they that delusional in thinking that no one notices this stuff?

"Military vets prefer Romney over Obama because most are white"?

Really?

T'wasn't that long ago that the progressive left insisted military service took advantage of poor, disadvantaged minorities. Which is it then?

It's a volunteer force. Conservatives volunteer because their culture respects military service, and knows there are numerous foreign threats to this country.

There aren't that many liberals in the military because they don't respect military service. They would rather surrender than fight. The only Corps they respect is the Peace Corps.

Yeah! I remember that! The Army was using poor ghetto black kids for cannon fodder because they had no chance for a job in racist Amerikkka. Was just a few years ago. Back whan Boosh was President.

Di\dn’t Charlie Rangel want to reinstitute the military draft, because the US military was made up of “poor, urban, minority males”? Now they’re all racist white people? I’m sorry, I’m having trouble keeping the ‘rat arguments straight.

During the Iraq War weren’t the lefties screaming that the military was mostly Black because that’s the only place they could find jobs?

My wife and I are Jewish. She tells me that I am one of only two Jewish man she knows who volunteered for the military. I have only one other on my side of the family*. Most of my generation of fellow American Jews are, frankly, self-centered pricks.

* does not include my Jewish friends who joined the Guard to avoid active duty during Vietnam

Don't take the liberal's bait. Race Bait or any other kind.

Don't engage them on the "facts" or issues they bring up until you vet them. Who are they? What is their credibility? Who pays them and who has paid them? Unless they can prove that they are not inveterate liars, paid operatives and aren't nuttier than squirrel poop based on their past history there is no reason to discuss anything they bring up with them. The press is the enemy and should be treated accordingly.

But the fact that Mr. Setzer supports Ubama simply because he is 7% black doesn’t mean he’s a racist, and even if it does that’s OK because he is a member of the self-declared victim class.

So I guess that any black that votes for Barry over Romney is a racist. Any white that votes for Romney over Barry is a racist. This statement is racist. I guess.

Christie Setzer

It’s no surprise that she went on to serve as the spokesperson for three presidential campaigns—including as Iowa press secretary for Vice President Al Gore, spokeswoman for former Vermont Governor Howard Dean, and national press secretary for Senator Christopher J. Dodd—and countless races across the country. In each of these roles, Christy garnered significant national media attention for her candidates, resulting in coverage on CNN, MSNBC, and ABC’s “Good Morning America” and in the pages of the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Washington Post.

Most veterans really are white, about 70%. Only a little over 15% are black.

Still, Stezer’s comment is patently racist.

Wait, wait, the meme we’ve been dealing with for the last three decades is that the underclass (blacks and Hispanics) are bearing the defense burden for rich white people. How did the veterans all suddenly become white?

No shame with people like this. Very sad, and just an illustration of the worst kind of politics.

What the communist faction and the blue blood country club banking faction of the Washingtonians have done is make it clear that the Washingtonians are about themselves first and foremost.

Every 4 years they put on a dog and pony show and fight out who gets to control and redistribute to their allies the cash extorted by the IRS from us suckers outside the beltway.

Washington will NEVER solve ANY problems no matter which faction is in control.

Washington IS the problem.

They set the races against each other, and the communist faction controls the racial make up of the nation to benefit itself.

The blue blood country club banking faction is too incompetent to stop them, even when they control all three branches of government, because they are afraid to be called racist and God forbid lose their seat in DC.

This is a bald face lie. Many years back, I was privy to a report that stated that blacks, by percentage of population, was large in the military than whites. That even though there are more whites in the population than blacks, the percentage of the Army’s population that was black was larger than whites according to the USA population percentages. If that makes sense to you.

According to Heritage Foundation, blacks are very slightly over-represented in the military, AS ARE WHITES! Hispanics and Orientals are under-represented.

The majority of military casualties are overwhelmingly white. (Blacks tend to serve in support units). The more elite units tend to be whiter. Furthermore, rural and small-town whites from the South and Midwest are very common, really the backbone of the military. Today’s military is being feminized and homosexualized, it looks like they’re going to try to make it more and more uncomfortable for traditional white male soldiers.

Absolutely right. The resultant PC backlash (blacks, in particular, get special consideration for combat arms leadership) can have some rather tragic results (see 5/2 SBCT and COL Tunnell--if he had been white he would've been fired prior to deploying with 5/2, no question).
