A message to Mr. Romney from a Petty Officer in the US Navy

Mr. Romney, I am a Sailor of the US Navy, and I am part of the 47% that will never vote for you.

Not surprising that an Obama voter would be this stupid. Of course, being a Democrat means there will be no consequences, so maybe not.

Can anyone imagine what would happen if a Republican-supporting service member did this? Oh, wait.... I think we've already found out.

Mr. Sailor Boy, Romney was not speaking of you. He was speaking of all those lazy assed welfare kings and queens who would not lift a finger to work or defend you and our country as you are doing.

Mr. Sailor Boy, you are not a 47%er.

Regardless, it’s subject to verification since he signed his name.

He’s not an officer, he’s a petty officer.

Petty officer is a non-commissioned officer, analogous to a Sergeant in the Army

When I worked at Lockheed, we had this one executive type who was a retired Army Colonel (ROTC at Rutgers) and he pushed hard to get people to vote for Al Gore in 2000. he guy was full of himself and when I wouldn’t pledge to vote for Gore, he got pissed off. He should have gone back to NJ.

Two things. One, this idiot says he pays taxes yet thinks he’s part of the 47% who don’t pay taxes.

And two, just today my wife said she doesn’t understand why anyone would join the military today.

This is an impostor in older dress blues (cracker jacks). (Proof) Take a look at where his rating is supposed to be, no rate icon or rank shown. It has been removed. This is just another metro sexual jackass trying to promote a worthless agenda.

I spent 4 years in the Navy (3/67 - 12/70). During that period, it was rare to encounter a Leftist although there were plenty of free thinkers (I was a linguist) and lots of politics discussed in the barracks and in the bars. Mostly though, our thoughts and talk turned more toward skirts.

“You don’t wear your hat if you are in the Navy?”

You don’t wear it indoors, never (regs). And your COVER never looks like that one; typically, it has a curve in the sides due to the way you store it.

This kind of behavior is NOT tolerated in uniform.

When you sign on the line that is dotted, you agree to stay out of political BS until you are no longer part of the uniformed services.

Given that Obamacare has not yet kicked in, there is no way that his "brother" got an operation due to this program.

Finally, since Romney was governor of the State of MA, how in the world does he have anything to do with the auto industry in MI? I was born in TN. I now live in WI. I have zero impact on industry in TN. See how that works?

I truly hope this is a fake. If it is real, this Petty Officer needs to punished. You do NOT use your uniform as a prop for political speech.

Of course it is not acceptable in uniform. But if he is really in the Navy (doubtful now, according to fellow FReepers who would know,) I’m sure absolutely nothing will come down from this utterly lawless administration. Count on it.

Not buying it, uh, Sailor. I know a lot of military personnel who will be voting for Obama. It has nothing to do with the 47% misconception. They don’t like Republicans. Many of them don’t like their commanders who are voting Republican. All of them are brave enough not to blame it on the stupid “secret 47% video.”. You’re obviously part of the nitwit crowd that can’t stand on its own two feet without blaming videos. Do you really not get it about what Romney was saying? Man, how stupid can you get? Oh. Yeah. Thanks for your service.

Thx, news to me. The only time I was on a boat was the ferry btwn San Diego and Coronado. I spent my time on C-121’s, P-3’s and A-3s. We wore flight suits or fatigues, typically with no cover at all (Danang).

This Guy is a plant, I was a NAVY Petty Officer and here are a few points:

1)A Navy Petty Officer or any first year recruit for that fact would not be making political speech in his/her uniform.

2)A Navy Petty Officer or first year recruit would know that you don’t wear your cover(Hat) indoors.

3)A Navy Petty Officer would not use the word Petty Officer informal as was always tough that my rate always came first such as ABH-3(my rank)or your last name first. The only time one address a person by formal ranks in the Navy Petty Officer ranks is if they are your superior and even Chief are called Chief, Senior Chief or Master Chief, with the Petty Officer usually left off.

I am a sailor “OF” the US Navy.......

Is that how they ‘talk’ these days?

That is like the emails one gets from a supposed Vet that has millions of (fill blank)’s money and wants to share with you.

I am a soldier in the Marines.

I am a SEAL of the Navy etc etc...

Of course a lot of todays sailors use bathroom for head, kitchen for galley, floor for deck etc etc etc...

Right on about Political speech in uniform...And explain to me how his brother got an Operation because of Obama Care?

Thought it wasn’t supposed to kick in till he was long gone...

The only reason I remember this is because of the fear I had as I walked down the side of the ship toward the wardroom in anticipation of this encounter, repeating over and over what I was supposed to say. All I really remember was that I should not remove my lid contrary to all I had been thought.

On top of that unless Boot Camp and Petty Officer School have changed that much since I wen through them both, all Navy Personal are warned about the Hatch Act and most XO’s warn their sailors about it in election years in the POD.

“The only reason I remember this...”

Thanks, good story.

I remember seeing an aircraft carrier in Subic Bay, standing next to it and understanding how huge those things were...damn. The flight deck must of been a mile up.

Once we were departing Danang to go on patrol and flew over the New Jersey while it was lobbing shells into the southern part of North Vietnam. We were at 7K or so feet and it was a clear day. What an impressive sight!
