500 Admirals, Generals to Endorse Romney

Nearly 500 former military admirals and generals are poised to endorse Mitt Romney, the Washington Free Beacon has learned.

The group will post a full page ad in the Washington Times on Monday. The advertisement will have the headline, “We, the undersigned, proudly support Governor Mitt Romney as our nation’s next President and Commander-in-Chief,” followed by the names of the former military commanders.

A spokesman for the group emphasized its independence from the official campaign. The Romney campaign has not sanctioned this ad buy, a spokesman said, and the members of the group are paying the fee themselves.

wow, lifetime military men prefer the candidate who wants to increase military spending.

I guess we'll all be shocked when 500 community organizers support obama, right?

Sheeit, choose a year and I bet those same 500 also backed mccain, bush2, Dole, etc.

Defense of the nation is more important than communist organizing moron.   Not that you give a damn though.

???

wait, wtf?

You want to slash military spending in USA by 50% over the next 5 years.  I'm okay with obama limiting spending growth - but no way do I agree with you that 50% of it needs to go.

And I'm the one who doesn't give a damn about defense of the nation?  WTF?   That makes no sense.

I said I would go across the board , never happen though.   Books need to be balanced.

A 50% cut in military spending is reasonable.  For one thing, we don't need military bases in Europe or Japan any longer.  Also, streamlining the military would be a good thing.  Moving away from spending on traditional military implements in favor of a smaller, less bloated and better trained military would result in more efficieny, saving millions, maybe billions in the process.

Romney tax breaks + increased military spending means he will bring us into deeper debt than Obamas policies ever will.

So i guess you will be voting for Obama?

The percentage is meaningless anyways - what matters is the number of electors.
