These guys are carrying some heavy duty stones...bless them all!
*** PING ***
That’s quite an endorsement...A pity active duty can’t jump on the list...
But, but “Colin Powell.”
Small wonder the government keeps ‘losing’ military ballots
I think I read it was supposed to be the Washington Times.
I have a lot of respect for that man and his opinions.
Affirmative action flag officers were excluded from this list. Only those who actually earned their stars are on it.
Sadly, there are many of those. Within the army at least, the policy there WILL BE a minimum of the right groups selected for promotion and just as importantly, selected for schools and command.
I was afraid of that. Whose minds will this ad change? Washington DC is almost totally blue and liberal, full of government employees, lobbyists, political fat cats and their families and gazillions of minorities.
The ad should have run in one northeastern city, one midwestern city and one western city as determined by knowledgeble political advertising experts.
I'm sure this list of retired brass could afford the three ads.
Again, what earthly good is placing this ad in the DC enclave?
Well, yes but at least the ad is being reported by other newssources, people can go find it if they want to.
I know Ron as well. A more honorable man you would be hard-pressed to find.
I refuse to address “COLON” POWELL as a General! He has proven himself to be an “Affirmative Action Fraud” who buttkissed his way up the food chain!
These 160 plus Real Military Retired Warriors know who Obama HUSSEIN really is! an Enemy of America!
And they know MITT ROMNEY, a true Leader of Great Accomplishments and a Man who truly Loves AMERICA!
A Laughing, Yuking it up Hyena!
1. Powell has always been a politician..He was in the White House as a LTC.
2. I am not suprised to see Tommy Franks on the list, but Hugh Shelton does suprise me. He is a big North Carolina lefty.
Agree, WT not ideal placement for swing voters BUT that’s why I’m trying to put it out there... tweeted it all over the place too
There is another list with about half a dozen names of those who are endorsing Obama.
The usual suspects. Colin Powell. Weasel-y Clark. Joe Sestak, the big big Lib ex-congressman from Philly. And someone described as “Admiral Gutter, the biggest JAG in the Navy”.
