POLITICO.COM reports:
President Barack Obama is trying hard to win veterans, but it looks like they’d prefer a new commander in chief. The Obama campaign had been hoping that veterans and their families — especially among the post-Sept. 11 generation that served in Iraq and Afghanistan — would be part of their path to victory: They’re a high turn-out demographic and concentrated in battleground states, with nearly 1 million each in North Carolina, Ohio and Virginia, and 1.6 million in Florida.

    This Veteran abandoned Obama the first time I heard him speak. In the old west he would have been called a carpet bagger, or snake oil salesman. Throw the bum out.

    No Veteran ever should be able to abandon Obama! THAT'S BECAUSE NO VETERAN EVER SHOULD HAVE BACKED HIM IN THE FIRST PLACE!!! (But if you did and you have abandoned him now, welcome back to the land of the intelligent!)

    How can any veteran be supportive of a President who tramples on a constitution they have fought for. Obama favors other countries and gives billions of our tax dollars to our enemies. Our soldiers, veterans and their families should be our first priorities. It is sad that we have charities stepping up to help our wounded warriors. Those billions of wasted dollars should be distributed amongst the people who have sacrificed for us, to keep our freedoms! Absolutely no one else is more worthier.

    And why shouldn't they? Barack Obama has destroyed military esprit-de-corps. Veterans know this. Those among them who never had esprit-de-corps, will never understand how important that is. But they are not repeat *not* a majority of veterans.

    I believe so, and I am glad. I also the military as a unit is about to turn against him. I think they should all unite, come home, and take him out, for a long walk.

    Our Veterans are under attack by this administration Healthcare, 1st Ammendment Rights, FREEDOM of speach, 2nd Ammendment rights Gun rights! These fine Americans have laid their life on the line for this country and their families serve as well.

    Its time that the American people stood up with them and thank you for your service. "God Bless you one and all"!

    I want to share a message from our Military to President Obama that I found on a website.
    Its Called "Bow to Nobody": Special Operations for America here is the link:

    Well I am a veteran. I work for veterans. I know of the assistance he has offered for retraining, healthcare, family assistance, transitional assistance. and Job placement, I know of his efforts in ending the Iraq war and winding down the war in Afghanistan. I know about the increase in funding to military personal... Hell man can you give the man credit where he deserves it. Why is it that people like you and those who hate this man include the military? HE HAS BEEN GREAT FOR THE MILITARY.. He did not start this mess but he is doing a good job cleaning it up.

    By quitting, that means troops gave their lives for nothing. I would like to thank you for your service, but remember 911 made is mess. I feel that if our government put our troops in harms way we are obligated to take care of them and their family.

    We have won.. Bin laden is gone.. Iraq did not participate in 911. Tell me friend what is the use. Fighting for what??? NO>>NO>>> Not another life is worth that mess... Let the Afghans settle their issues.. Nation building does not work if the nation does not want to be build.. NOT ANOTHER LIFE> COME HOME SOON>

    The only thing he did regarding Iraq was follow through with the plan the Bush administration had put in place with the exception of the SOFA agreement that Bush tried to get and now Iraq has issues. He has cut the defense budget drastically. He has not done the military any favors.

    Thank you for shaking some real TRUTH. Some Americans may not be aware of.
    This administration has done nothing, but put our troops at risk and it needs to stop right now. :)

    Thanks for serving..
    Iraq is over... Thanks Mr. President. Get us the hell out of Afghanistan. Bin laden is dead. We won
    Please just take a moment and Google defense budget by years and you will find out that he has increased the defense budget every year he has been in office... I disagree with some of his increases, because it goes to war profiteers, but he has made a concerted effort to assist veterans and their families. Just take a minute to look at scholarly sights. Again thanks for serving I am retired now but I work with Veterans and their families on a daily basis.

    And thank you for your service! But they'll just say that whatever he did in Iraq, was just "finishing" what W started. They hate him, for no good reason, so they spit all the lies at anyone that DOES like him. obama 2012
