What the article is saying that CIVILIAN EMPLOYEES contributions are being combined with the REAL MILITARY'S contributions to come up with this number. Each branch of the military hires civilians to cover certain jobs for them and these employee's contributions are being combined with the REAL MILITARY to come up with this number. GOOD reporting would separate the two and report them individually. Crappy reporting like this combines them together so produce an end result that is in accordance with standard liberal media doctrine of "All things work together to the good of Obama, even if that means we have to thrown out our integrity, our math skills and everythign we learned about doing complete and accurate reporting." These are civilian employees who are most likely loyal union drones carrying out the wishes of thier overseers and paying thier tithe to Obama and the union.

So someone is attempting to make us believe the military overwhelmingly supports Obama?

I swear I come to this forum just to see what the next daily outrageous comment will be.

The military is strongly Republican. Has been for some time. Anyone that states otherwise is simply banking on the fact you are too stupid to do your own research and blindly believe what they say.

I agree the military often runs right but I will never understand why.

I think the point was this

"Despite the fact that Paul once raised almost twice as much as Obama did from the military,* the president has received $536,414 from military donors, compared to Paul's $399,274 and Romney's $287,435, according to research by the Center for Responsive Politics. These numbers are based on donations greater than $200, as reported to the Federal Election Commission."

It's about Armed Forces contributions COMBINED with government workers who live off of tax dollars...



Now if they SEPARATED the two and showed how much of these contributions were from the ACTUAL Armed forces ALONE and how much of it were from "civilian employees" ALONE we'd know the truth...
Jabbo works for the Armed Forces as a civilian. You just have the wrong idea what The Armed Forces actually is. It's your failing, not the headline's.

If I were to take a SWAG, I would say the Armed Forces alone would show 88.39 for Romney, and 7 for Obama. The rest would be undecided.

The article is one in which they hope to trick you into believing the opposite from what facts and reality tell us. They are basically banking on us being stupid and blindly believing something in hopes we are not the types that think for ourselves or know how to do research.

Here is the low-down. The vast majority of our men and women in uniform lean conservative. Democrats hate this fact so do anything they can to attempt to make you believe otherwise.

The title of this article is a blatant lie.

Last poll I saw and posted showed Romney with a forty-point lead over Obama with active and reserve military.

maybe in times past but I don't see how that could be so today. They are an all volunteer military and different education levels and demographics. I suspect they have just as diverse a viewpoint as the rest of Americans. I always thought they might tend to run with the installed POTUS but even that's not true so much anymore. BUT there are those who would like for us to believe that I'm sure.
