America’s retired military makes a strong statement for Romney

On Monday, November 5, an ad will run in the Washington Times with the names of almost 500 retired military officers from all of the different forces who support Mitt Romney.  I was lucky enough to get an advanced copy of the ad.  The same email forwarding the ad asked that it be shared with as many people as possible, so that is what I’m doing:

Romney–W

    For Pete’s sake, how biased can you get! Shame on you for not being bi-partisan and publishing Mighty Mouse’s great list of military endorsements.  What are you trying to do, influence the election or sumpthin’?
    They are listed below:
     

    Admirals & Generals….

    A good thing they’re retired, active military ballots are somehow still in Bahrain.
     

    Postal officials are investigating the apparent loss of some absentee ballots mailed from Afghanistan.

    A contractor who sent an email to Military Times said his county elections clerk in Texas had not received his ballot or his co-worker’s ballot by Thursday, although they mailed the ballots Sept. 27. “The Bagram Airfield Army post office placed Express mail tracking numbers on them, placed the ballots in an orange ‘Ballot Box,’ and probably in a dedicated mail bag. “If our ballots got lost, how many other ballots are lost as well?” he wrote. Military Postal Service Agency officials are working with the U.S. Postal Service to resolve the issue, said James Clark, chief of the operations division of the Military Postal Service Agency. It’s unknown whether other ballots may have been affected. The contractor stated the tracking information shows their ballots are still in Bahrain, and have been sitting there since Sept. 30

    Oh, when I magnified the list, I see they are all Flag or General Officers.  If they had extended the invitation the list would probably number in the tens of thousands.
    I want use the word hate, but I would say that disgust is a valid description for the opinion of every retired officer that I know.  Worry is a term that also applies.

    Not every person in the military (or veteran) prefers the Republican candidate. When we were stationed at Fort Jackson, my father put a McGovern sticker on the family car. My mother says that she’s never been more embarrassed.

    McGovern is not in the same class as Obama. 
    I did not agree with his Liberalism, but I never forgot that he was a decorated bomber pilot in WWII.
    He was anti-Vietnam war.  I thought he was misguided at the time, but in retrospect maybe he was prescient.  His Democrat colleagues, JFK and LBJ, took us into a conflict that they apparently could not justify to the country, and it turned into a fiasco.  Of McGovrn’s pacifism and belated anti-war activities  may have contributed to the sorry ending.

    Recalling JFK and LBJ’s feckless Vietnam policies (that Nixon brought to resolution, to bitter criticism by the Democrats)…do you recall McNamara’s Whiz Kids? They were the collection of “brainy” Ivy League people that were so smart that they were going to manage the war with no prior experience in the military, just their totally awesome brain power. And they created a disaster.

    Kinda like Obama and his Commissars…er Czars, doncha think? Same mentality, same outcome.

    Democrats are incapable of learning wisdom from history.

    Or maybe the Left got rid of people like McGovern because they were the old old guard of the Democrat party. Back before when it was an actual political party and not just a death cult worshiping religion. The Left infiltrates and subordinates organizations for their own cause, which requires the destruction of American safety and prosperity. The fact that they get to clean out the old leaders from the Democrat party shouldn’t be a surprise given what happened to feminism, black economic liberty, and so forth.

    Danny, any person with Vietnam era military experience remembers the Whiz Kids very well.
    The personification of feckless arrogance.   Hmm.  Maybe they were the template for Obama.
    I mentioned in some forum, or other, that I took a course in Analysis from a young Professor who had worked in McNamara’s Pentagon–although certainly not in the upper echelons, he had drunk deeply of the Kool Aide.  Seldom would you meet a person who was so sure of himself, and knew so little of how the world worked outside of the cocoon of theory.  (I should mention that the USN and the U.S. taxpayers had generously sent me to graduate school.)

    Oldflyer #12  >”Seldom would you meet a person who was so sure of himself, and knew so little of how the world worked outside of the cocoon of theory. ”
     
    Since you said that of the “young Professor”, it amounts to legitimate criticism.  But if you say that of Obama, it is nothing but racism.

    And perhaps it wouldn’t be entirely fair to say that of Obama.  Everything he has tried has failed it is true, but he *does* know quite a bit about the corrupt, crony world of Chicago politics, too.
