Military prefers Obama....

From Huffington's Post Off The Bus:

Young Military Families Quietly Closing Ranks Around Obama
by Diane Tucker

QUANTICO, Va. -- One of the largest U.S. marine bases in the world is located in Quantico, a tidy town with scant election fanfare. Everyone who lives here just assumes Republicans have a lock on the military vote.

So when Obama signs began to appear, tongues began to wag. And according to the Center for Responsive Politics, deployed troops are putting their money where their mouth is too: they've given four times as much money to Obama as McCain.

So Obama is not totally against the $10billion/month we're spending on the war?

Anon..Obama, like most Americans, wants our people out of Iraq as soon as possible. But he wants them out as safely as possible too. Remember there are also a lot of civilians there as well as our military. And he figures...sensibly...that the monthly cost of that war could then be applied to economic problems at home. Do you disagree?
