“In May, Obama was actually leading Romney among Afghanistan and Iraq veterans.”
I don’t even know how this could be possible. Under obama, there have been more NEEDLESS American deaths than throughout the entire rest of the war in Afghanistan, not to mention handing Iraq over to Iran making all the deaths and mutilations and sacrifices of our Troops utterly in vain.
Yeah. They gave a few speeches. Whoop de doo.
Is this the first time neither presidential candidate is a vet?
Obama sends form letter to parents of Seals killed in Afghanistan, but sends personal letter to dead rapper’s family:
I also seem to recall a letter sent by bereaved parents of a soldier killed in Afghanistan. Can’t find it on the web, but the jist of it was something like this:
We could understand if our son was killed in battle. But he was killed by supposed fellow Afghan soldiers.
In other words, due to your failed policies, Mr. O.
The GOP talks about helping soldiers, raising their pay, giving them what they need on the battlefield. The Democrats talk about helping vets after they leave the military. My theory is, the Dems want as many dead and crippled vets as possible so they can turn them into another dependent class. That’s why Dems always cut funding for the DoD, why they always say “the war is lost”, why they do their best to lower the morale of active-duty soldiers during the war.
Regardless of how many senseless deaths or budget cuts, regardless of what a pantywaist Obama is, there are a lot of black people in the military and they are going to vote for him.
34% of military still likes him...go figure.
Maybe they need to deploy to Afghanistan some more
I would add another reason; a go-nowhere Afghanistan strategy that is costing American soldiers their lives.
