Would have thought the USN would have been higher for 'McNasty.'At Coretta Scott King's funeral in early 2006, Ethel Kennedy, the widow of Robert Kennedy, leaned over to him and whispered, "The torch is being passed to you." "A chill went up my spine," Obama told an aide. (Newsweek)

I guess some of those unenlightened fools who voted for Obama do not understand that with an Obama presidency that they may be voting themselves out of a job. Democraps have severely cut troop levels under Clinton, Carter, etc.

We've been getting hit every week by telephone 'pollsters,' who really aren't pollsters. They'll run down a list, "Who would you rather have as President?" Then, they'll play up obamessiah and cut McCain.
We've already voted absentee - for McCain - since we aren't going to be around come election day.
I'll take their poll, agree that the Messiah sits at the right hand of God, and then tell them near the end that we've voted Republican. The last one got a little pissed after spending 10 minutes with the fake poll crap only to hear she'd wasted her time.The poster formerly known as chuck58 on the old board.

And with this information, I'm sure a memo has been sent out from the DNC to all battleground states listing all the little technicalities that can be used to disqualify a military ballot. :mad:
