    Surprising, they must really like extended tours in foreign shit holes and cuts to veterans benefits.

    Vast majorities of our men and women in uniform don't want to be led by someone who never ran so much as an Hotdog Stand in his life before becoming their boss.

    That surprises you?

    Frankly, yes, but then again, remembering my own service they tend to be a rather authoritarian bunch who respond better to a dictatorial loud-mouthed tough talking style of leadership.

    The US Military rolled over Japan and Germany in 4 years.

    We've been in Iraq for 9 years and Afghanistan for 11.

    Now either the US is completely fucking up the "strategery" or we're just there for the War Profiteering. Which is it?

    I think the Military knows.

    Dishonest post. It wasn't a poll of the military, it was a poll of subscribers to the Military Times Group, a demographic that is overwhelming older, white, male, and self-selected to like the Gannett semi-tabloid newspapers.

    Being a veteran, I recognize Obama's competance as CIC. I'm also repulsed at the way the weakling conservatives so often try to hide behind the skirts of the military. And I don't do the military-worship thing so common in conservative chickenhawks. A military opinion is no more valid than any other, and only scary authoritarian type minds think military opinions are superior.

    Great. Now even more oversees military ballots will be sent late, if at all.

    Most active military I know subscribe to or buy the Air Force times.

    Sucks to be you, mammary:

    The 3,100 respondents — roughly two-thirds active-duty and one-third reserve component members


    LOL
