Just a few quotes from respected Military High Ups about Gannet Newspapers attempt to influence the military....

"The Military Times Media Group may get their opinion out, but it wouldn't be respected even if it is persuasive! "

"The Army Times and that entire group do not, repeat do not speak for the military. They might speak for some politicians who happen to be currently on active duty in the military."

Careful what you read, and or beleive....

You're right Echo. Click on the link, and you get this:

The results of the Military Times 2008 Election Poll are not representative of the opinions of the military as a whole. The group surveyed is older, more senior in rank and less ethnically diverse than the overall armed services.

So...what the poll says is that old white guys with fat gubmint checks coming in like McCain. Now, there's a shocker.:D

They're typically scewed left.........

so it must be significantly more in favor of McCain than indicated above.

I'd say it is given the many soldiers I come in contact with everyday.

I'd say there's a higher probability that there are millions of fat Americans looking for a free gov't handout, something like the income redistribution plan Obama is pushing.
