On Memorial Day Veteran Males Give Romney a 24 Point Lead Over Obama

It’s not a surprise really, considering all of Barack Obama’s antiwar rhetoric over the years.
Gallup reported:

U.S. veterans, about 13% of the adult population and consisting mostly of older men, support Mitt Romney over Barack Obama for president by 58% to 34%, while nonveterans give Obama a four-percentage-point edge.

And, veteran males give Romney a 28 point edge over Obama.

But, they do make a pretty good photo op.

    just have to share email:

    Columnist Andrew McCarthy gives us what probably is the most
    important question regarding the upcoming presidential election….

    “…..if Mitt wins the nomination, as seems very likely, I will enthusiastically
    support his candidacy. For my friends who have hesitation on that score,
    I’d just ask you to keep four things in mind:

    1.. Justice Scalia just turned 78

    2.. Justice Kennedy will turn 78 later this year

    3.. Justice Breyer will be 76 in August

    4.. Justice Ginsburg turned 81 about a week ago.

    We wish them all well, of course, but the brute fact is that whoever we
    elect as president in November is almost certainly going to choose at least
    one and maybe more new members of the Supreme Court — in addition to
    hundreds of other life-tenured federal judges, all of whom will be making
    momentous decisions about our lives for decades to come.

    If you don’t think it matters whether the guy making those calls is Mitt
    Romney or Barack Obama, I think you’re smokin’ something funky….”

    So for anybody who is thinking of not voting because your favorite
    didn’t get nominated, or writing in a candidate who can’t win…

    Well after this election we’ll definately get a good look at the percentages of stupid people who despite Obama’s criminal actions and down-right stupidity, will vote for him. I’m interested what the numbers will be.

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    But, they do make a pretty good photo op.

    Translation: They’re are nothing but tools to him. And when a tool has outlived its usefulness,…

    If you don’t think it matters whether the guy making those calls is Mitt
    Romney or…

    What’s the guarantee that if Romney manages to win that we won’t get another Souter, or a series of Souters?

  • lizzy84

    I’m not happy that Romney will be the nominee but I will do anything I can to support him.
    oBama MUST be defeated.

    PS. Please, Mitt Romney, stop call him a “nice guy.” He’s NOT.

    [Maybe business schools should think about sending their students to
    boot camp instead. A study of CEOs who have served in the military
    finds that companies run by former soldiers are less likely to commit
    fraud than CEOs who never served. But honesty may come at a cost
    to shareholders—the same study finds that military CEOs also produce
    lower returns at the companies they manage.

    With democrats, the question is,….WILL THEIR BALLOTS BE COUNTED THIS TIME?….The last few election cycles the votes of our troops haven’t been counted. It is always some nonsense about they can’t get the ballots to troops on time, even though the official count doesn’t take place until mid December. Stop it, that is bull$hit !!!!

  • Sasja

    Mark, just stay on top of things and make sure your state gets those ballots out on time.
    People, these things are handled at the local level, so if you think your state will not do right by our military than get busy to see it does.

    The time of relying on “others” to see that elections are conducted lawfully are over. Get involved and get busy.

    “What’s the guarantee that if Romney manages to win that we won’t get another Souter, or a series of Souters?”…#6 Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    The only guarantee is that Obama will appoint more like Sonia Sotomayor. Obama’s leanings are blatantly obvious. I’d rather take my chances with Mitt Romney and be wrong than Obama and be right.

  • An appropriate post on Memorial Day. Veterans aren’t the only group moving away from The One. Moderate suburbanites in swing states – women in particular – are emerging as THE key demographic. And if Mitt’s campaign stops last week are any indication, he’s going after them, hard … http://bit.ly/qVdDUt

  • #5 Economan,

    And after we see who it is that voted for Obama we need to take out a class action suet against them to show that they are no longer entitled to vote, on anything, and demand that our Houses pass a Constitutional amendment to allow only those who know right from wrong to have the right to vote. And that is to know the difference between liberal and conservative. If they don’t know the difference then they loose the right to vote. I’m sick and tired of being held at gun point everytime the vote comes around.

    In my town we just had a vote to renew a whole bunch of different kinds of tax renewals. And you would think for sure that after these three and ahalf years of Obama and the price of gas and the high price of everything especially utilities like electricity everybody would vote against any and all taxes I don’t give a damn if it’s a renewal or a new tax. And of course what did the liberals do to sucker voters to vote for the taxes? They said the taxes would be used to build and maintain libraries…….for the children.

    And I’ll be damn what did these idiots who have always done the wrong thing? You’d think that since there is a massive awakening going on in America, and everybody and his brother knows all the liberal tricks to get people to vote for stuff they don’t need and shouldn’t be voting for, do???

    THEY VOTE FOR EVERY SINGLE TAX BY A WIDE MARGIN!!!!!!!!! I called the damn newspaper and spoke a “letter to the editor” in hopes I could cuss, so to speak, the citizens of my town and they’d print it, but they didn’t, that my fellow citizens….ARE IDIOTS!!!!! MY HOPES ARE THAT THESE FOOLS ENJOY PAYING ALL THE HIGH *SS TAXES THAT ARE ABOUT TO BE LEVIED ON US AS OF JAN. 1ST 2013 when Obama puts his 1.4 trillion dollar tax on our poor butts. These fools here didn’t and don’t get it that the lower your city and state taxes are the less will come out of our money when these huge Federal taxes come down. But nooooooooo! THEY ARE TO DAMN STUPID TO HAVE GOTTEN IT WHEN THEY HAD THE CHANCE TO SEND THE STRONGEST MESSAGE TO OUR CITIES AND STATES, THAT WE AREN’T GOING TO PAY ANY MORE TAXES!!!

    What’s the best way to stop liberal Democrats from spending money? Cut the money off by voting down every single tax that comes……EVERY SINGLE ONE!! I have voted against every single tax, tax increase, tax renewal, every kind of tax that ever has come before the people since 1980 when I reregistered to vote. I did drop out for awhile because I just didn’t figure it was worth it anymore that these bastards in Washington were going to do what they want to do so what is the use to vote against someone because they are never who they say they are. What I learned though was you have got to contact them after they are in office and stand on their neck!!!

  • #11 BG,

    Yeah, that may be true that profits are lower if owned by a vet, but the deal with military is long term strategy, similar to manuvering around a opposing force. Speed is neccessary but also to looking at the big picture may mean that it may take longer because of the fact that you plan for the worse but hope for the best which if applied to the business means that making money may take longer to build if it done for the sake of profit over the long term instead of going for the big bucks as fast as possible.

    That’s why as a vet I never would project my profits for the year, and then raise my stock prices as if those profits had already been made like most companies on the stock market do these days. Then when the profit report comes in at the end of the third quarter these same companies that claimed they were going to do much better this year than they did last year, didn’t do so well. As a matter of fact not only did they not do so well they fell ten percent below their projected profit that they said was a asured deal back in January when they raised the stock prices 25%. But do these companies give back the money that they stole all year long to the stock holders who just got taken to the cleaners by these bastards in the board room? Hell, are you kidding? They keep the damn money and the stockholders take a bath as the stock drops like a rock as the big boys take all their money out before the floor drops out.

    It really makes me mad when they do that and I’ll be damn if they don’t do it every year, and have been for the past twenty-five years. Wouldn’t you think that by now the stockholders would learn and stop buying that stock by now? Some do, but there’s always a new batch of stock buyers who don’t have any idea what they are doing every year that suck that stock up every time. And as long as there are suckers there will be someone who is ready to take their money.

    Maybe vet owners are more honest but I hope they don’t rip their stockholders off with lies in January and the truth in October.

  • Time

    It is amazing that Oblamer and the rest of the left protest war, claim to be against it yet they are the ones that create war along with the other half,the right. Both sides continue to beat war drums and then condem it .. OBlamer wants everyone to believe war is wrong, he is against it and will bring home our soldiers, but, has he ? Nope, and he will use them up to the last drop of blood is spilled. Again, he sends them into harms way but despises what they do for a living and then seeks the votes of the people that hate war too. He is a hypocrite in the highest regard, using the very action he is against for his benefit. People are not ignorant they are just fools to think of voting for anyone that talks the talk and does not walk the walk. They only walk the walk when it is their vote they want and their dollars they need. Don’t these people feel used and ashamed that they are being used for their money and their vote ? The way it looks I say NOT.. Every body is some body’s fool.. And Oblamer has millions of them…

  • PJay

    Veterans have the guts to answer honestly when asked who they will vote for. I think the general public will “lie” when asked –“will you be voting for Obama or are you a racist?” Just as they will say they support gay marriage (or are you a homophobe?) And when it comes to actually voting, gay marriage is soundly defeated EVERYWHERE that it is on the ballot. If the election is even close to being legit, Obama will be defeated in a landslide.

  • Mr. President Obama, sir, it would have been nice and proper if your staff did a very close study of the family situation at the Viet Nam Memorial during Memorial Day and you of all people should have given the respect and courtesy to these families, to pay their respect first before you decide to make your appearance or better yet, rather than orchestrating your own crowd you should have entertained your appearance in front of all of the family members that showed up there during Memorial Day. This way, these people would see that you really cared and that you then can send the proper message to them that you are honoring these fallen comrades and that You are doing this for that purpose and not just to boost your voting score. I am really concerned because I know that some of these people traveled from distances, not to mention the ones that came from overseas. We all learn from our mistakes but I hope that this lesson will wake you up to realize that what your Secret Service and the Police did to keep these family members from paying their respect to their fallen love ones is a major blunder in your important event for that day. Sincerely, Tony Aquiningoc SGM (R) US Army Special Forces, Candidate for Senator, Guam USA, Republican Party.

    Warren Buffett, in a recent interview with CNBC, offers one of the
    best quotes about the debt ceiling: “I could end the deficit in 5 minutes,” he told CNBC.
    “You just pass a law that says that anytime there is a deficit of more
    than 3% of GDP, all sitting members of Congress are ineligible
    for re-election.”

    The 26th amendment (granting the right to vote for 18 year-olds)
    took only 3 months & 8 days to be ratified! Why? Simple!
    The people demanded it. That was in 1971 – before computers, e-mail,
    cell phones, etc.

    Of the 27 amendments to the Constitution, seven (7) took one (1) year
    or less to become the law of the land – all because of public pressure.

    Congressional Reform Act of 2012

    1. No Tenure / No Pension.

    A Congressman/woman collects a salary while in office and receives no
    pay when they’re out of office.

    2. Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social

    All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the
    Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into
    the Social Security system, and Congress participates with the
    American people. It may not be used for any other purpose.

    3. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all
    Americans do.

    4. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise.
    Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.

    5. Congress loses their current health care system and
    participates in the same health care system as the American people.

    6. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the
    American people.

    7. All contracts with past and present Congressmen/women are void
    effective within three months. The American people did not make these
    contracts with Congressmen/women.

    Congress made all these contracts for themselves. Serving in
    Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers
    envisioned citizen legislators, so ours should serve their
    term(s), then go home and back to work.

    Pass this and I know our Great Country will continue!!!

  • He has divided the nation one group at a time. I was in the first group as a former Police Officer. He made all of the uniformed Officers stand behind the bus so he would not be seen with one. He didn’t even have the courtesy to them himself, he ordered the secret service to do it for him. He wanted them for protection only.
    Take time to read the entire Article
    If Obooma were a statue this man has found and highlighted every crack and crevasse that will eventually cause the statue to crumble. If the statue is reelected for another term, America will crumble along with him. It will take a strong President and Congress working together to pull us up to even to our former stature.
    Please clean House and Senate

    Subject: Fwd: Psychologist’s view on Obama


    This man’s view should be discussed and evaluated and, if true, should have significant impact on the 2012 election. Professionals in the field should weigh in on this view and his conclusions.

    Israeli Psychologist on Obama
    Dr. Sam Vaknin is an Israeli psychologist. Interesting view on our president.

    Dr. Vaknin has written extensively about narcissism.
    Dr. Vaknin States “I must confess I was impressed by Obama from the first time I saw him. At first I was excited to see a black candidate. He looked youthful, spoke well, appeared to be confident — a wholesome presidential package. I was put off soon, not just because of his shallowness but also because there was an air of haughtiness in his demeanor that was unsettling.. His posture and his body language were louder than his empty words. Obama’s speeches are unlike any political speech we have heard in American history. Never a politician in this land had such quasi “religious” impact on so many people.
    The fact that Obama is a total incognito with Zero accomplishment, makes this inexplicable infatuation alarming. Obama is not an ordinary man. He is not a genius. In fact he is quite ignorant on most important subjects.”
    Dr. Sam Vaknin, the author of the Malignant Self Love believes “Barack Obama appears to be a narcissist.” Vaknin is a world authority on narcissism. He understands narcissism and describes the inner mind of a narcissist like no other person. When he talks about narcissism everyone listens. Vaknin says that Obama’s language, posture and demeanor, and the testimonies of his closest, dearest friends suggest that the man is either a narcissist or he may have narcissistic personality disorder (NPD).
    Narcissists project a grandiose but false image of themselves. Jim Jones, the charismatic leader of People’s Temple, the man who led over 900 of his followers to cheerfully commit mass suicide and even murder their own children was also a narcissist. David Koresh, Charles Manson, Joseph Koni, Shoko Asahara, Stalin, Saddam, Mao, Kim Jong Ill and Adolph Hitler are a few examples of narcissists of our time. All these men had a tremendous influence over their fanciers. They created a personality cult around themselves and with their blazing speeches elevated their admirers, filled their hearts with enthusiasm and instilled in their minds a new zest for life. They gave them hope! They promised them the moon, but alas, invariably they brought them to their doom.
    When you are a victim of a cult of personality, you don’t know it until it is too late. One determining factor in the development of NPD is childhood abuse “Obama’s early life was decidedly chaotic and replete with traumatic and mentally bruising dislocations,”says Vaknin. “Mixed-race marriages were even less common then. His parents went through a divorce when he was an infant two years old. Obama saw his father only once again, before he died in a car accident. Then his mother re-married and Obama had to relocate to Indonesia, a foreign land with a radically foreign culture, to be raised by a step-father. At the age of ten, he was whisked off to live with his maternal (white) grandparents. He saw his mother only intermittently in the following few years and then she vanished from his life in 1979. “She died of cancer in 1995.”
    One must never underestimate the manipulative genius of pathological narcissists. They project such an imposing personality that it overwhelms those around them. Charmed by the charisma of the narcissist, people become like clay in his hands. They cheerfully do his bidding and delight to be at his service. The narcissist shapes the world around himself and reduces others in his own inverted image. He creates a cult of personality. His admirers become his co-dependents. Narcissists have no interest in things that do not help them to reach their personal objective. They are focused on one thing alone and that is power. All other issues are meaningless to them and they do not want to waste their precious time on trivialities. Anything that does not help them is beneath them and does not deserve their attention.
    If an issue raised in the Senate does not help Obama in one way or another, he has no interest in it. The “present” vote is a safe vote. No one can criticize him if things go wrong. Those issues are unworthy by their very nature because they are not about him.
    Obama’s election as the first black president of the Harvard Law Review led to a contract and advance to write a book about race relations. The University of Chicago Law School provided him a lot longer than expected and at the end it evolved into, guess what? His own autobiography! Instead of writing a scholarly paper focusing on race relations, for which he had been paid, Obama could not resist writing about his most sublime self. He entitled the book Dreams from My Father.
    Not surprisingly, Adolph Hitler also wrote his own autobiography when he was still a nobody. So did Stalin. For a narcissist no subject is as important as his own self. Why would he waste his precious time and genius writing about insignificant things when he can write about such an august being as himself?
    Narcissists are often callous and even ruthless. As the norm, they lack conscience. This is evident from Obama’s lack of interest in his own brother who lives on only one dollar per month.. A man who lives in luxury, who takes a private jet to vacation in Hawaii, and who raised nearly half a billion dollars for his campaign (something unprecedented in history) has no interest in the plight of his own brother. Why? Because, his brother cannot be used for his ascent to power. A narcissist cares for no one but himself.
    This election was like no other in the history of America . The issues were insignificant compared to what is at stake. What can be more dangerous than having a man bereft of conscience, a serial liar, and one who cannot distinguish his fantasies from reality as the leader of the free world?
    I hate to sound alarmist, but one is a fool if one is not alarmed. Many politicians are narcissists. They pose no threat to others. They are simply self serving and selfish. Obama evidences symptoms of pathological narcissism, which is different from the run-of-the-mill narcissism of a Richard Nixon or a Bill Clinton for example. To him reality and fantasy are intertwined.
    This is a mental health issue, not just a character flaw.
    Pathological narcissists are dangerous because they look normal and even intelligent. It is this disguise that makes them treacherous. Today the Democrats have placed all their hopes in Obama. But this man could put an end to their party. The great majority of blacks voted for Obama. Only a fool does not know that their support for him is racially driven. This is racism, pure and simple.
    The downside of this is that if Obama turns out to be the disaster I predict, he will cause widespread resentment among the whites. The blacks are unlikely to give up their support of their man. Cultic mentality is pernicious and unrelenting. They will dig their heads deeper in the sand and blame Obama’s detractors of racism. This will cause a backlash among the whites. The white supremacists will take advantage of the discontent and they will receive widespread support. I predict that in less than four years, racial tensions will increase to levels never seen since the turbulent 1960’s.
    Obama will set the clock back decades. America is the bastion of freedom. The peace of the world depends on the strength of America , and its weakness translates into the triumph of terrorism and victory of rogue nations.. It is no wonder that Ahmadinejad, Hugo Chavez, the Castrists, the Hezbollah, the Hamas, the lawyers of the Guantanamo terrorists, and virtually all sworn enemies of America are so thrilled by the prospect of their man in the White House.
    America is on the verge of destruction. There is no insanity greater than electing a pathological narcissist as president.
