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.

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.

That may be true, but if you think Socialism is the answer, you have a big surprise coming.

The Dems will leave this country in soup line shambles.

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.
While I understand that there is some resentment towards Middle-Eastern members because of acts of terrorism, please do not paint them all with the same brush! I'm of Mediterranean descent (Greek) and sometimes when I tan people assume that I'm Muslim when I'm in fact Christian.

Now I don't support a lot of what Obama does, and I definately have hostility towards his unpatriotic wife. But things I won't hold against him is his ancestry, color or name.

I thought the membership here on GT was smarter than the average public, I was obviously way off on that one. That Klinton post was maybe one of the funniest posts I have read in a few days. I guess the military loved him too.

If ANYONE believes that Obama is going to end the Iraq war and bring the troops home, you have slipped the surly bonds of reality. It will NEVER happen. You all keep on believing it though and in a few more months maybe Santa will bring you nice presents.

I think your sentiments are why the election will go for Obama. I don't think 2nd Am issues (pro or con) are high on Obama's list. If they do get high on his list it will be after he has fixed the economy and the war(s). And quite frankly, I'd trade hi-caps to return to the same economy, gas prices, and peace that we had under Clinton. I'd rather have both, but given the choice between McCain and continuing the bad econmy/high gas prices/war and hi-caps vs. Obama w/no hi-caps, I'll take Obama.

Obama...fix the economy and the war?

Thanks man, I really needed that. Laughter is good for the soul!!!

But here again we have this liberal history revisionist thing going. Clinton inherited his economy from GHB, he did little except to allow for the increase in money to be delivered through the free housing market act..which if you will note is why we are in the mess we are in today. If returning to a clinton type era is good , then we can certainly expect another 9-11, espcially since it was being planned during Clintons time in office and he failed to take care of business with Osama not once, not twice but three different occassions. The morale of this story is the Dems SUCKETH when it comes to National Security

News Flash..The economy doesn't just change in seconds...it takes months, even years for things to have an effect, unless of course there is a world wide meltdown in ALL countries. Given that GW inherited loss regulations from Clinton, and given that we had a 9-11, went to war, still at war, dealing with many other rogue nations (North Korea, Libya, Iran etc...) I am surprised we have gotten this far without some sort of hickup. You can't do all that America is doing without eventually having to pay. geeeze, we don't even have a draft. OUR country is at war, yet life has been going by in America for most (Military and a few Govs are teh exception) as if nothing was really happening. Kids go to college without threat of serving, little mommys boys still get to have their protests, even though most have never even lived outside our country...Call it what you will..We as a nation are spoiled...The LAST thing we need is Democrat who doesn't have clue who he is telling the rest of us we need change, when he doesn't even know what the change is or will be...

hey, but thanks for the laughs...made my night here in Iraq!!!!
