According to the Military Times (PDF),
just 25% of military members support President Obama's job approval. In
George Bush's last year in office, he held an approval rating that was a
tad under 50%.




In late February, President Obama put together a proposal to cut $12.9 Billion from the Tricare system, despite the fact that the health care of troops has dropped 21%.



Although Gallup showed that military members on active-duty or
veterans are less likely to approve of Obama, they disagree on the
magnitude. But the Gallup poll
was released in May 2011. I see two problems with that poll. 1) It was
taken in the same month of the Osama Bin Laden killing - a great win for
our nation's military. 2) Even Gallup admits that service members may
be less "willing to express an opinion to a survey interviewer,
regardless of what they may actually believe". The Military Times poll
may be more appealing for an honest review or the opposite.

    Ooops, does that mean that OBAMA will disban the Marine Corp, and replace it with his own army? Well, could be. He did say he wanted his own army, didn't he. Well, let the chps fall where they may, probably, this administration will send the marine corp, or CORPS, as Obama will put it, out side the USA do come voting time, he doean't have to worry about them.

    Most anti military president I recall. He's vacationing and apologizing everywhere and they are stuck fighting wars run by civilian politicians with no military experience, bad combination. If he goes where they are they have to pretend to support him. The timeline comes up to exit and he's starting some crap somewhere else. Get the feeling he doesn't want them all here to see the damage he's done and continues to do? Total BS. president evil obama

    President Barack Obama apologized for the burning of Korans on a U.S. air base in Afghanistan as Afghans and NATO troops died in a third day of riots over the treatment of the Islamic scripture.

    At least five deaths raised the riots’ Afghan death toll to 12. The man is responsible for our service men's deaths. He should be put on trail and convicted.

    Does anyone think the military will stand behind a president who;
    cuts military pay and medical benefits for vets
    openly sympathizes with our enemies, and apologizes to them
    never served in the armed forces himself
    want his own armed force, loyal only to him
    would use the military to impose illegal force upon the civilian population (from whom the servicemen themselves come)
    and has broken every promise he made to them?

    I don't see the dislike. I see disagreement with policy.

    The overwhelming approval is for troop withdrawal. The disapproval is for the results of a decade of war. Who can blame them? We should never have gone into Iraq and we should have focused on Afghanistan first and done so thoroughly. It was a botched job.

    I dont think its a servicemans place to say anything about the politicians. Their job is to do as asked and get on with it.. simple as that. You can have opinions sure, you can think what you want.. as long as the job your being paid to do is done without question thats the end of it.

    I read some of the comments in that Marine Times article and I am flabbergasted by the hate spewing from the USMC! Don't they have a code of conduct any more? What kind of low lifes are signing up. Sorry if I am disrespecting any marines here. I truly respect you, but the posters in that article are beyond belief with their hatred. My family (my brothers, uncles, son, cousins, niece) are all USMC. But the posts in this article are beyond belief and shameful.

    He sucksessfully is on target to get gasoline prices as they are in Europe. He sucksessfully paid back his campaign bundlers BILLIONS upon BILLIONS of dollars with "green" energy companies that filed bankruptcy 2 years after receiving tax dollars. He sucksessfully bypassed congress and ordered military operations against Libya. He sucksessfully has divided the country using ideology from the playbook of Saul Alinsky.

    He sure is sucksessful.
