I'm predicting Obama will take an early lead this morning until all the Republicans get off from work.
No worries, the "New Black Panthers" will be making sure all is on the "up and up" and various polling places...
....yes - they are on the loose in Philadelphia:
....and speaking of HYPOCRITICAL Democratic party Presidents who pay "lip-service" and who "loathe the military" - read this one for a good election-day laugh (and listen to the clip I just added above);
Yes - and let's hope we're not all losers with these results. But election results change NOTHING as far as how the Democrats - and especially this president - view the military. The 500+ top military brass didn't come out in support of Romney as a frivolous or flippant exercise of campaign rhetoric. If you add it up, most if not all of these senior military leaders served 30+ years on active duty. That's more than 15 THOUSAND years of military experience serving this country. They know how things work, and they know that - during his first term - President Obama has performed as Commander-in-Chief consistent with the legacy of previous presidents of the Democratic Party. Until a Democrat President comes along who breaks with that "tradition," a GOP Commander-in-Chief will continue to be the preference of our fighting men and women.
Well I believe none of the above matters now, since the election is over, and our sitting President have been awarded four more years. Good thing we use America's Votes instead of Retired Generals, and Admirals. :-)
Sporty: ALL of the above still matters now - regardless of whether the election is over or not. You missed the point of the top brass endorsement of Romney. They weren't endorsing Romney the candidate; they were endorsing Romney THE OPPONENT OF OBAMA. And as long as the Democratic Party philosophy and actions as I outlined in my basic blog post continue, the military will continue to endorse the NON-Democrat every chance they get.
Sure - soldiers will do their sworn duty, but just ask anybody who served in the military between 1976 and 1988 who they preferred, respected, and WANTED to be their Commander-in-Chief. It makes a difference - to soldiers; to their families; and ultimately to the security and well-being of this country.
So it STILL matters - and it always will.
I was, too, Sporty. Next time, you can be sure that unless something changes within the Democratic Party (which I seriously doubt since I've been waiting for it to do so for forty years), our military - active duty and retired - will continue to prefer a REPUBLICAN in the White House.
