Troops overwhelmingly support Obama.

Come again? I thought Obama was the soft Ivy League liberal, McCain the POW war veteran? Oh, wait, maybe military families care about how their sons and daughters are cared for by their government after returning from overseas. Maybe they’re offended that McCain’s voted against some basic protections for our returning soldiers. Maybe they’re offended that Mr. Bush doesn’t attend military funerals, as has been Presidential tradition? Here’s the video, with thanks for the tip to Mat Gerson:

    ron paul received more campaign contributions from active military than ALL other candidates (when he was still in the race)…too bad corporate media ignored him. paul should be the GOP nominee, not mccain.

    This actually surprised me. If only all the people who talk so loud & proud about how they “support the troops” actually listened to those troops, or actually gave them the benefits and care they deserve (or voted for bills that help them… ahem, McCAIN!) we’d be getting somewhere. Hopefully these vets and their families will continue to speak out about their dishonorable treatment. They could play a key role in turning the tide in Obama’s favor.
