Barack Obama can give all the speeches he wants to the military, the fact of the matter is that they can see through such pandering. According to a recent Gallup poll, US military veterans, 13% of the US population give Mitt Romney a huge edge 58% to 34%. The remarkable 24 point advantage is nothing in comparison to the 60% to 32% that Romney has with Veteran men over woman vets.
Mitt Romney delivered a Memorial Day tribute in San Diego.
Mitt Romney thanked the sacrifice of servicemen and women while warning of the grave dangers around the globe, remarking frankly that “the world is not safe” before ticking off a list of grave security issues around the globe.
“I wish I could tell you that the world is a safe place today,” said Romney, speaking before a crowd of nearly 5,000 which included servicemen and women in uniform. The sizable crowd is one of the largest Romney has ever drawn. “It’s not. Iran is rushing to become a nuclear nation. As the national sponsor of terror around the world, the thought of missile material in the hands of Hezbollah or Hamas or other terrorists is simply unthinkable. Pakistan is home to some 100 nuclear weapons.”
The antiwar rhetoric from Obama over the years has a way of defining what an individual really thinks of the troops. As as we are reminded by the Gateway Pundit what Barack Obama thinks of America’s finest, they make a great photo-op.
