On Memorial Day Weekend, Veterans Give Romney Big Lead Over Obama, 58% – 34%


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.

      I knew a man who was in the Air National Guard during the Viet Nam War. He told me about spending time at Travis AFB, protecting the soldiers returning from Viet Nam from the people who came to spit on them and scream at them and throw things at them. I wonder if those people have the grace to be ashamed of themselves today. And I sure hope Obama would not have chosen to honor Viet Nam era vets today for political reasons. But I think he did.

      Barry would not respect the pledge of allegance to the flag by saluting or placing his hand over his heart nor would he wear a flag pin in his lapel.

      Since he never ever had any military experience, someone had to teach him the proper way to salute. It is no wonder that the troops do not support him. Everything he has done regarding the military indicates how little he appreciates their work.

      [...] The VFW demanded an apology from this gutless, Leftist weasel. It was MSNBC’s version of link baiting. Make some viscous and terrible comment during a time in which honor and respect should be provided to our fallen brave. Then again, for the LEFT this is what they believe, as delusional as the premise might be. Is it any wonder why military veterans support the GOP candidate for President Mitt Romney over the Far left Democrat President Obama, 58% to 34%? [...]
