Don’t be too surprised. The 35% are overwhelmingly PAC clerks, finance clerks, and general combat service support troops. Jobs that are essentially make-work easy-retirement positions that should have been outsourced or privatized.
The closer you get to the tip of the spear, the faster support for Obama declines.
If you got a link to that, Wolf, I’d be glad to get it from you.
There’s a few vets under the VFW/Legion umbrella I need to show that to.
Thanks from a career spook.
I am still hoping above hope that most people responding to polls are saying they support Obama because they don't want to sound racist, but they will either secretly vote Romney or not vote. I simply cannot fathom how 46% can support a demonstrable TOTAL failure. Even the pompom waivers are having a desparate time pointing out Obama's accomplishments or explaining away the economy.
“essentially make-work easy-retirement positions”
You’re exactly right.
I hate to admit that I personally know anyone like this, but I have an in-law (sort of) who is career Army, and he is the very type you mentioned — and is also a loyal obama supporter (of course).
Judging by some of the conversations I’ve had with him, he has a lot of buddies who are just like him.
And as you said, they’re the office worker types who basically keep busy doing what amounts to nothing.
got that right, thise who you mentioned for the most part only joined t get their VA, fre college etc and yes many of them have told me.
Don;t forget the cross dressers, queers, and others who couldn’t careless about the country but have joined to get a trade like a cook and never do much work.
