    I remember before the 08' election they published a list of endorsements of the candidates.

    I don't see this anywhere. I wonder if anyone has one.

    It's funny now that Romney is getting what looks like a lion's share of the endorsements we don't have the press washing our faces with it.

    Military Endorsements Hold Greater Benefits for Democrats, Study Finds

    October 15, 2012 — As the presidential campaign focuses increasingly on President Obama’s performance as commander in chief, a study released Monday finds that he benefits from endorsements of retired military officers more than Mitt Romney does, particularly with coveted independent voters.

    Support for Mr. Obama increased by nine percentage points among independents who were told by surveyors that most members of the military and veterans backed him, compared with those who were not told. Among independents who said they did not follow foreign policy news closely, the president’s support increased by 14 percentage points.

    By comparison, Mr. Romney did not pick up support with those groups when they were told the military mostly backed him. Republicans historically have enjoyed the public perception of strength on national security, so the three academics who conducted the study concluded that the party’s public image is less affected by validation from veterans. Since Democrats traditionally have struggled to win public trust on national security, endorsements matter more.

    They probably have an idea of what it would feel like to be left to a bunch of terrorists trying to kill them, and their commander is sitting in the situation drinking coffee saying let them die. Of course, they are for Romney. He is for America
