Isn't it correct that McCain cannot accept private donations at all? He stuck to the agreement to use the public funds pool and Obama backed out and decided he could make more money privately. Wouldn't that affect any sort of poll on where money comes from.

Besides the fact it appears to be a lie.. that is...

Who cares? He still has a mid eastern name. The United States of America does not need a President w/ a mid eastern name, when we are at war in the mid east. I am still clinging to my religion and guns. I am still proud to be a AMERICAN, unlike his wife. I don't idolize a racist Reverend or Rap Crap spewing singer, then claim to disown them. His middle name is little to be desired. So tell me what he is going to "Change" since he can't! Or maybe I will be told that this is a "TYPICAL" GT'er response. You can replace the "GT'er" w/ what he said, just to remind you. I can refresh your memory. Oh, by the way, don't go there. I really think Gen. Colin Powell and Condolezza Rice would have been a good pick for VP. I actually think Condi is as good looking as Sarah.

Sir, how does this explain Obama out-doing McCain in terms of fundraising as it pertains to the Military???

ArmyTimes is doing currently doing a survey on who we (service members) support in the next election. maybe you should base you opinion on our CURRENT views instead of what you remember way back in the day.

As a current reserve member of the US Navy, I would say opinions are very divided. It is a very heated debate, but the supporters of Obama seem to stick with his ideas no matter what. Overall, taking only my unit at this time, a solid 50% are voting Obama, and the war in general, is not spoken of highly amongst many where I drill.

That is something that myself and some other cadets were discussing out at LDAC this past summer, at Fort Lewis, WA. And much to my surprise, there are actually quite a few "cadets", soon to be 2LTs, who seem to be supportive for Obama. I think that its good we can talk politics here on GT, at the end of the day, its all about respecting each other's opinion even if we disagree.

The fact is, that Obama is going to win in November and the Republican party and its hardliners cant do anything about it. People are just simply TIRED of the way the Republicans have been doing things for the past 8 years. There are alot of moderate people in this nation that are good, upstanding Americans, that are going to vote for Obama because people want change... It might not be the best change imaginable but anything from the way things have been going will be an improvement, even if it is a little bit better.

Ironic that the party that emboldens Christ and faith moreso than the Democrats, or so at least they say in their rhetoric no matter how void in legislation and action, is mud slinging more than ever and using fear-mongering tactics to attempt to retain power... I dont blame them though, its merely a last-ditch effort to retain what they have screwed up in the past 8 years.

It is like the same story,vote republican and get screwed,vote demo and turn the economy around.I am just afraid that w are to the point of no damn return,I dont think anybody is gonna be able to fix this.

The American public is going to overwhelmingly elect Obama. Mark it down. People have had enough and McCain and Palin are not the answer to our nation's problem and the vast majority this nation know it.

Hmmm - I am over here right now...and I call BS. BHO has his supporters, but in my very small sampling, he is outdone 3 to 1 on most of the FOBs I have visited....In fact most of the mil guys are ready to move on to Afghan...Its too quiet now in iraq, and that means boredom for the troops...

Deomcrats tried to block overseas military votes in 2000.

It would be surprise me to see the same group support Dems now.
