Treasonous, Cowardly, Un-American Troops Favor Obama By Seven

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

Cackle cackle cackle!Get out your Purple Heart bandages, because it is once again time to remind the American people that The Troops are a bunch of lazy, cowardly, treasonous, unpatriotic, un-American, Kenyan-Socialist-Communist whiners.

If the election were held today, Obama would win the veteran vote by as much as seven points over Romney, higher than his margin in the general population.

The fuck you say! It is almost like soldiers are expressing anger at the toll of a decade of war, questioning the legitimacy of George W. Bush’s Iraq invasion, and worrying that the surge in Afghanistan won’t make a difference in the long run! (And also: don’t really have a hard-on for #WARRING with Iran!)

The GOP’s heated rhetoric, aimed at the party’s traditional hawks, might be expected to resonate with veterans. Yet in interviews in South Carolina, a military-friendly red state, many former soldiers expressed anger at the toll of a decade of war, questioned the legitimacy of George W. Bush’s Iraq invasion, and worried that the surge in Afghanistan won’t make a difference in the long run.

“We looked real cool going into Iraq waving our guns,” said [Master Sgt. Mack] McDowell, 50, who retired from the 82d Airborne Division in November with a Legion of Merit and two Bronze Stars. “But people lost their lives, and it made no sense.”

Now he worries. “I really don’t like the direction we are going, how we seem to come closer daily towards a war with Iran.”

Don’t worry. Tomorrow Mitt Romney will be against going to war with Iran, because. [Reuters]

The troops do realize that a vote for Romney means a free trip to scenic Iran?

JustPixelz May 14, 2012 at 11:13 am

I think that's what the poll just said.

Chet Kincaid May 14, 2012 at 11:50 am

The poll is veterans, not active troops. The naive, idealistic and/or financially-strapped Troops don't seem to get it until they've been shocked and awed.

ElPinche May 14, 2012 at 11:19 am

where every night is the fourth of July!!

Sir_Fartz_Alot May 14, 2012 at 11:21 am

You're a grand old flog.

Don't beat the joke to death.

Two words: Stop Loss.

Barb May 14, 2012 at 11:13 am

The troops know that Romney is saying that Russia is our biggest threat. Who really wants to go to war with Russia for no good reason when there are so many other countries to pick imaginary fights with?

MrFizzy May 14, 2012 at 11:15 am

We really should go fuck up Canada – not only would it be totally easy, but our fighting force could come home for the weekends.

Sir_Fartz_Alot May 14, 2012 at 11:22 am

remember the alamo

Jus_Wonderin May 14, 2012 at 11:42 am

Wouldn't the weather be better in Mexico??? The troops could probably take The Pacific Princess and Issac could mix them drinks.

MrFizzy May 14, 2012 at 12:21 pm

I'm not accepting any Pina Coladas from Isaac until I see his birth certificate.

Biff May 14, 2012 at 11:44 am
MrFizzy May 14, 2012 at 12:23 pm

That's really funny – a great testament to Canada that someone would even think of it. Evidently Canadians have better things to do than build weapons and eat biscuits and gravy while complaining about diabetes. Imagine that.

freakishlywrong May 14, 2012 at 11:18 am

Well the "Soviets", freedom, USSR..blah, blah, blah..

actor212 May 14, 2012 at 11:24 am

WOLVERINES!!!!!!!!!!11!

Chichikovovich May 14, 2012 at 11:25 am

so many other countries to pick imaginary fights with?

And even imaginary countries to pick imaginary pick with. USSR, Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia, Dutchy of Grand Fenwick, ….

And what about the Barbary Pirates? The Founding Fathers™ cared about the Barbary Pirates, and you can be sure Romney will too, unlike The Usurper.

not that Radio May 14, 2012 at 11:49 am

Czechoslovakia? That's like going to Wisconsin.

chicken_thief May 14, 2012 at 12:05 pm

Except Czech chicks are hotter and the cheese is better.

The cheese is, btw, unrelated to the chicks.

horsedreamer_1 May 14, 2012 at 7:00 pm

In the area of Slav women, Slovenes & Princess Leia are where it's at.

doloras May 14, 2012 at 11:26 pm

And beer is 20c a glass.

Callyson May 14, 2012 at 12:10 pm

Except that the beer is about 1000 times better. (Unless Wisconsin has some microbreweries that don't export their product across the country…)

I say we bomb the fuck out of an imaginary country like "The Republic of Texas."

sewollef May 14, 2012 at 11:41 am

Yes, what a good idea. How come no one other than ElPinche thought of that, eh?

But please, please leave Austin out of this…. I've got ACL to go to in October and I'm looking forward to seeing some mighty fine bands.

Lascauxcaveman May 14, 2012 at 11:51 am

And can we do it after football season? My team is probably going to need the easy win over the Cowboys to get to the playoffs this year.

Chet Kincaid May 14, 2012 at 11:53 am

You've got bands coming in for your torn ACL surgery?! That's some deluxe health insurance!

sewollef May 14, 2012 at 1:35 pm

I wish. But in a strange coincidence I have torn my Cruciate Ligament.

However, Oxford — my so-called 'insurance' — refused the preliminaries first go round. It took the surgeon's lackey 45 minutes to talk them round to allowing me to have an MRI and x-ray.

As a European used to universal healthcare, my knee, on hearing the news, went on strike, put up barricades, threw molotov cocktails at the gendarmerie and set fire to the insurance company offices in Union Square.

That was before it decided to feel much better and postpone the surgery 'til sometime later. A bottle of Nickel & Nickel Cab solved everything else.

ElPinche May 14, 2012 at 12:09 pm

Im in Austin, too! We're ok as long as we don't wear their uniforms: http://www.zazzle.com/texas_secede_tshirt-2356903

mormos May 14, 2012 at 12:05 pm

i for one have no desire to go to war with a country that can actually fight back

tessiee May 14, 2012 at 12:15 pm

"Romney is saying that Russia is our biggest threat"

???

Because he's stuck in the 50s with all that commie menace bullshit, or because Russia is the only country that's more broke than the US?

MrFizzy May 14, 2012 at 11:14 am

The troops from Halliburton are voting Republican.

HateMachine May 14, 2012 at 11:36 am

Or else they'll be laid off.

WhatTheHeck May 14, 2012 at 11:45 am

Or is that the other way around: the Republicans are voting Haliburton.

freakishlywrong May 14, 2012 at 11:15 am

It probably doesn't hurt that Barry and his hawt wife are genuinely supportive of Military families. And got booed for that effort at a NASCAR race.

sewollef May 14, 2012 at 11:31 am

Huh? They did…. seriously?

BerkeleyBear May 14, 2012 at 12:02 pm

Jill Biden and Michelle did get booed, but with the way microphones get set up for NASCAR there's no way to tell if it was most of the crowd or just a few strategically placed assholes.

mavenmaven May 14, 2012 at 11:16 am

The people who make the most ultra-aggressive comments in the name of the troops are the people who never actually were part of the troops.

ElPinche May 14, 2012 at 11:28 am

..Nor have a son or daughter in harm's way. In Mitten's case, five healthy sons would prefer to battle it out on the polo field.

ManchuCandidate May 14, 2012 at 11:31 am

They SERVED US AMERICA! By helping daddy's sad 08 campaign.

Biff May 14, 2012 at 11:45 am

Does any aspect of a dressage horse cross over to a polo pony?

Generation[redacted] May 14, 2012 at 12:43 pm

Mitt is against cross dressage. And long hair.

SayItWithWookies May 14, 2012 at 11:34 am

Mittens definitely would've served — it's just unfortunate that he had obligations to his church instead, so he served time in a chateau in France. But it didn't have a pastry chef, so don't think he didn't endure some hardship.

Chichikovovich May 14, 2012 at 11:37 am

He did face the enemy in one engagement while piloting a light-armored personnel vehicle, but all of the casualties were in his unit. Friendly fire.

ManchuCandidate May 14, 2012 at 11:39 am

Poor Shamus.

SayItWithWookies May 14, 2012 at 11:59 am

Seamus got off easy.

HistoriCat May 14, 2012 at 12:37 pm

Continuing McCain's fine tradition …

"a chateau in France. But it didn't have a pastry chef"

Pfffffft!
*dismissive hand flap*
The last place I stayed on a vacation had *no bar at poolside*!
I ask you, what kind of half-assed place doesn't have a bar at poolside?, preferably with a little thatched dealie that looks like a Tiki hut, so you can sip your umbrella drinks in the shade, instead of in the sun like an animal?
If I'd wanted to "rough it", I would have had my people go camping for me!

Puffperney May 14, 2012 at 12:02 pm

I began to notice that at the tender age of 18. That's when I got a free, mandatory tour of S.E. Asia. Since then I've developed a real heartfelt loathing of "chicken hawks", still feeling it today at the age of 63.

spends2much May 14, 2012 at 11:16 am

A vote for Romney will get them all fancy Crusader outfits, as they go off to fight Infidels around the globe, for Jeebus, 12th century style!

I favor our troops over Romney by at least 7 points.

ManchuCandidate May 14, 2012 at 11:22 am

Mittens is sad. He's going to Paris for the weekend because of your callous heartless comment directed at his 1%-ness.

Reginald_Perrin May 14, 2012 at 11:16 am

What is wrong with the troops?
Why aren't they lining up for the glorious opportunity to be posthumously baptized as a Mormon after being killed in Iran?

MissTaken May 14, 2012 at 11:17 am

Why do the troops hate the troops?

swordfis May 14, 2012 at 11:22 am

Excellent

Chichikovovich May 14, 2012 at 11:27 am

Some comments are so perfect in their stilletto simplicity that I can only look on with grateful, speechless awe. This is one.

Mittens Howell, III May 14, 2012 at 12:59 pm

Fucking awesome!

Negropolis May 15, 2012 at 1:44 am

That's it. Close this motherfucker down, already. WIN.

BaldarTFlagass May 14, 2012 at 11:17 am

I knew this would happen if we repealed Don't Ask Don't Tell.

not that Radio May 14, 2012 at 11:23 am

The troops' position on war has never been gayer!

JustPixelz May 14, 2012 at 11:17 am

Romney's running to be Dubya's third term: more tax cuts (aka bigger deficits), less regulation (aka more dead people from avoidable safety lapses), more war (aka Iran, or maybe an Iraq do over), proving his dick is bigger than his Dad's. Like a said, a third Dubya term.

Goonemeritus May 14, 2012 at 11:18 am

It’s almost like the troops don’t appreciate everything the Republican Party has done for them recently. You would think all the travel to exotic destinations and standing up for pay day loan availability would be appreciated.

Sir_Fartz_Alot May 14, 2012 at 11:29 am

needs less body armor

BerkeleyBear May 14, 2012 at 12:03 pm

and insufficiently armored vehicles.

MadBrahms May 14, 2012 at 2:25 pm

and less VA funding.

freakishlywrong May 14, 2012 at 11:19 am

Booing an active duty soldier for being gay probably didn't help.

SorosBot May 14, 2012 at 11:19 am

So wait, our troops hate the troops?

MissTaken May 14, 2012 at 11:21 am

*Ahem*

I guess your cold medicine hasn't fully kicked in yet :)

SorosBot May 14, 2012 at 11:25 am

It seems our cross-country hive-mind has kicked in again.

actor212 May 14, 2012 at 11:25 am

Or maybe too well

Chichikovovich May 14, 2012 at 11:31 am

You two had better make sure that division of snark is thoroughly covered in any prenups you may sign.

Lascauxcaveman May 14, 2012 at 12:02 pm

Seems like I'm always going back to delete one of my comments because I find the 'Bot did the same comment, only better, and two minutes previous to mine.

Nice to know what goes around comes around.

BaldarTFlagass May 14, 2012 at 12:43 pm

I don't even bother any more. Still pick up some tangential p.

Quit copying off your girlfriend's paper!

MLHencken May 14, 2012 at 11:20 am

Interesting how spending time in combat apparently allows for some feeling of antipathy towards the people who sent you there.

MrFizzy May 14, 2012 at 4:17 pm

Including all the voters who put cockwads like Dick Cheney in office.

SexySmurf May 14, 2012 at 11:21 am

In related news, Ron Paul wins the support of veterans who wear three coats and yell at garbage cans.

Lascauxcaveman May 14, 2012 at 12:04 pm

Since RoPaul's the only truly anti-war candidate out there this time, I would think the normal soldiers would give him more attention, too.

MadBrahms May 14, 2012 at 2:27 pm

Thanks to GOP funding for veteran's psych treatment, that's a formidable block!

horsedreamer_1 May 14, 2012 at 7:02 pm

All of them (from the Vietnam era), Katie?

ManchuCandidate May 14, 2012 at 11:21 am

Maybe it's because Obama's trying to bring them home instead of sending them out tour after fucking tour to get shot at.

PS: I hope that fucking photo haunts that fat ugly bitch with the purple heart bandage forever.

actor212 May 14, 2012 at 11:47 am

I like to imagine that, in 2006, a grandchild or nephew ran off to fight in Iraq, and came back missing an arm or a leg. For the rest of her brief and pathetic days on the planet as she hears from this brave soul about how his lieutenant swooped in and singlehandedly made sure his platoon got back to the forward ops base where they were able to save his life, altho his leg would never be repaired, somewhere deep inside her, a little voice is reminding her that was the story she made sport of in 2004.

BerkeleyBear May 14, 2012 at 12:05 pm

Only in the remake the looey is both the ghey and blah – just to triple kill the bitch.

Chichikovovich May 14, 2012 at 12:57 pm

No snark. If those events actually had taken place, I guarantee you that she would never, ever, ever make that connection even if people pointed it out to her directly.

actor212 May 14, 2012 at 11:22 am

Oh dear! Well, I mean, I guess you come home from war with the army you have, and not the blindly obediant automatons you want.

MadBrahms May 14, 2012 at 2:28 pm

And this, this is why they made Cylons.

Ducksworthy May 14, 2012 at 11:23 am

As a veteran (U.S. Army 1967-1969) I would like to ask, WTF is wrong with the treasonous cowards who dodged the draft while encouraging others to go die. (I'm looking at you Willard.)

ManchuCandidate May 14, 2012 at 11:28 am

War is fun when you're a Rear Echelon Motherfucker in the rear with the gear and not when you're neck deep in the shit.*

*read too many 'Nam histories.

BerkeleyBear May 14, 2012 at 12:08 pm

Fucking Willard didn't have the balls to be a REMF – fucking cock sucking pro-war protest supporting "missionary" and "student" and "married" deferment taking shitbird. And the GOP had the balls to say Obama wasn't patriotic since his blah ass didn't volunteer to be in the peacetime army of the 80s (never mind that he actually served in the far more dangerous front of trying to get shit done without political connections on the South Side of Chicago).

Spurning Beer May 14, 2012 at 11:34 am

Hey, it was no bed of roses over there in France. Being a missionary. In France.

Sir_Fartz_Alot May 14, 2012 at 11:41 am

the crusty baguettes and moldy cheez! mon dieu

Chichikovovich May 14, 2012 at 11:43 am

It was tough. One time when he got to the part about "no wine, no coffee, no cigarettes, no extramarital whoopee" he and his adjutant had a door slammed in their faces so fast Mitt got a bump on his noggin.

And another time, when he was preaching the "Blacks are marked by God as inferior and interracial marriage is a horrible sin" bit, a couple of Senegalese veterans of the Army of Africa happened to be walking by and overheard. Romney and his mini-me hardly made it to their car before a righteous thrashing rained down on them. And Mitt ripped his blue blazer.

Negropolis May 15, 2012 at 1:47 am

I don't know. Being a Mormon in sensual France does sound a bit like torture.

Isyaignert May 14, 2012 at 12:04 pm

What's even more disgusting is that when asked why none of his five sons served in the military, he said that their highest and bestest use was helping him become president. What an arrogant prick! Fuk you Mittens (early morning Republicon turrets kicking in – fuk I hate those fukkers).

ElPinche May 14, 2012 at 12:12 pm

The Nuge is still wiping his ass.

This is good news for John McCain!

edgydrifter May 14, 2012 at 11:26 am

Illegal Kenyan Marxist infiltration of our armed forces has become shockingly rampant since recruiters stopped demanding long-form birf certifimicates.

Joshua Norton May 14, 2012 at 11:26 am

Only manly-man culture warriors like Mittens, Gingrich and Santorum should be allowed to serve.

ManchuCandidate May 14, 2012 at 11:30 am

Be the worst army ever… since the Kiss army.

sewollef May 14, 2012 at 11:37 am

They may be allowed to serve, but they sure as shit won't be doing any serving.

Armed forces and getting shot at or blown up is for suckers.

MadBrahms May 14, 2012 at 2:29 pm

Gingrich will only serve if they let him be High Commander of Moon-Based Special Operations.

Ducksworthy May 14, 2012 at 11:29 am

Isn't ironic that the people who have to fight wars hate wars but the people who universally avoid having to fight wars love them? Or is it something else, more hideous than ironic?

johnnyzhivago May 14, 2012 at 11:30 am

Romney not only is now against war with Iran – he ALSO is now saying that the desert there is the perfect color, the palm trees are just the right height and the camels are the friendliest in the entire world!

Jus_Wonderin May 14, 2012 at 11:33 am

"…and the camels are the friendliest in the entire world! "

Where is SkoalRebel when we need him???

tessiee May 14, 2012 at 12:33 pm

I guess he per-fers good ol' American cows and sheep to muslin critters like camels (except maybe Joe Camel).

MissTaken May 14, 2012 at 11:36 am

Camels are horrible creatures. if I had the opportunity to take out some camels I would happily go to war. Fucking smelly camels with their spitting and biting.

Biff May 14, 2012 at 11:57 am

They're just a horse designed by committee. Or US Congress, not sure which.

SorosBot May 14, 2012 at 11:31 am

But the media has always told me that the troops are all conservatives! And our great media could never be wrong, it's not like most of it is just a Republican propaganda outfit these days or anything.

Biff May 14, 2012 at 11:58 am

I really can't imagine a more socialistic organization, they should all be flaming lefties.

johnnyzhivago May 14, 2012 at 11:31 am

Mittens fought the French in France so we didn't have to fight them here.

starfanglednut May 14, 2012 at 1:34 pm

He ate delicious food, wandered the streets of one of the world's most beautiful cities and ogled gorgeous women…. For freedom!

I support the troops…having a hardon.

Gunner Asch May 14, 2012 at 11:32 am

This is encouraging and surprising news. My son-in-law's EOD unit is chock full of RWNJs. I was afraid they were all too representative.

johnnyzhivago May 14, 2012 at 11:35 am

EOD? Explosive Ordinance Dismantlement?
Extra Ordinary Demolition??
???

Gunner Asch May 14, 2012 at 11:49 am

Explosive Ordnance Disposal. I thought I had some long schools back in '67, with Advanced Individual Training of 42 weeks for electronic spy schools. This takes 46 and has a very high washout rate, so presumably those who graduate are not the biggest idiots to be found (milling around near HE aside.)

johnnyzhivago May 14, 2012 at 12:07 pm

Takes a lot of balls too, or ovaries or whatever!  I get nervous unloading the gas cartridge from my bb gun….

DemmeFatale May 14, 2012 at 11:47 am

EOD?
Right Wing New Jerseys? Huh?
(I'm too old to know.)

Gunner Asch May 14, 2012 at 11:53 am

Right Wing Nut Jobs. Sorry, I thought it was a universal acronym. I guess EOD isn't either.

el_donaldo May 14, 2012 at 11:34 am

People tend to associate the military with the right wing, forgetting the large numbers of troops drawn from minorities, for one. Plus, an ethic of service doesn't actually predispose one to GOP policies.

The officer corps, though, is I think a different thing altogether. Those guys are dicks.

Spurning Beer May 14, 2012 at 11:44 am

Even some of the dicks in the Officer Corps are non-Republicans. You'd be surprised.

Now, white southerners in the military are another matter, as are retirees.

I treat a lot of active duty military people for PTSD, and a lot of them talk about how alienated they became in Iraq and Afghanistan. Some of them talk about how the Iraqis and Afghans "hate us." One talked about seeing acres of new SUVs parked at FOBs unused. Somebody made a lot of money.

Jus_Wonderin May 14, 2012 at 11:50 am

And A LOT of that money just walked right out of Afganistan. Fuck it all!! Why the fuck don't we "nation build" here????

Sorry. I ranty.

el_donaldo May 14, 2012 at 11:50 am

I'm an army brat from the south, so I have some latent bitterness about it all.

BaldarTFlagass May 14, 2012 at 11:46 am

I went to a reunion of my old ship a couple of weeks ago, and was pleasantly surprised to find that the Chief Engineer I served with, a crusty old salt if there ever was one, is quite a liberal. But then, he was prior enlisted.

Maman May 14, 2012 at 11:35 am

Imagine that! Being used like props for the better part of a decade makes the troops mad.

johnnyzhivago May 14, 2012 at 11:40 am

At least I'm able to tell my kids that I am in fact, a veteran – of the war on ignorance…

Sir_Fartz_Alot May 14, 2012 at 11:42 am

hey mitt! how many ghey mimes did you kill?

Jus_Wonderin May 14, 2012 at 11:56 am

I bet he just pantomimed holding them down and cutting their hair.

actor212 May 14, 2012 at 11:42 am

Those are lifers, and that sort of divorces them from the concerns of day-to-day living in America.

freakishlywrong May 14, 2012 at 11:43 am

A couple of Mitten's huge-toothed sons needs to enlist. Then, maybe the rank and file would have a little respect for him.

Biff May 14, 2012 at 12:02 pm

Even the inbred Royals from Knifecrime Island understand this.

Guppy May 14, 2012 at 11:46 am

Maybe "the troops" realize that defense spending is less "men" and more "materiel."

How's the VA budget looking?

Jus_Wonderin May 14, 2012 at 11:47 am

"You go to an election with the candidates you have—not the candidates you might want or wish to have at a later time".

SayItWithWookies May 14, 2012 at 11:48 am

Don't worry, Mitt Romney won't go to war with Iran — he hasn't even campaigned on that. That would be like Dubya having his first security meeting focused on Iraq.

The vets they polled don't live in the wingnutopia I spent last week in. A place called Colorado Springs that wouldn't exist except for the voluptuous teet of the federal gov't. I was regaled with tales of killing brown people – for FREEDOM!

The Air Force doesn't count. Way too corporate.

I think she was actually laughing about Ann Coulter joking about Max Cleland getting his limbs blown off. But yeah those purple heart band-aids sure were clever! That really put that patrician Lurch in his place, HAH!

I see Bill Ayers and Saul Alinsky have gotten to the troops.

Having been at the very point of the spear (showed a picture of this at the Los Angeles party to the man cuddling with the Editrix in the photos) and having a permanently disabled son who was also at the very point of the spear, let me just say, "Fuck the Republican Party." As a group, they are war profiteers, cowards, war criminals. Everyone who wore one of those Purple Heart bandages should have had it slapped from their faces.

Don't worry, Mitt. Dick Armey still supports you.

What the hell? After all the "thank you for your service" and parades and public applause, these soldiers turn on the Republicans like a pack of weasels? And just at the time we need them for the War on Women, the War on Marriage, the War on Christmas and other wars to come. Need moah wars.

I imagine the troops are more open to voting for Obama since, you know, they have to actually work, eat and sleep everyday with people that aren't uptight, white, Christian, born with a spoon in their mouth, frat boy pricks.

But, then again, maybe there's just being brainwashed by the liberal press.

Not a great surprise, good firemen always tell you to be careful with matches.

Not surprising to me since Mitt's kind of a pussy.

Suddenly, the GOP is in favor of disqualifying late arriving military absentee ballots.

Honestly, if you add in Ron Paul as a third choice, I would not at all be surprised to see him carry a plurality.

Gee, it's almost as if soldiers don't actually LIKE getting shot at for no good reason.

Just within an inch of its life.
