Obama in action

President Obama Holds Firm on Tax Hikes
Claiming his re-election was proof that 'a majority' of Americans agree with his approach, President Obama vowed Friday to only approve a plan to avoid the so-called 'fiscal cliff' that also includes raising tax rates on higher earners.(FoxNews)

In the fierce headline debate over the so-called fiscal cliff, our newly reelected president argues that “a majority of Americans agree with [his] approach.” That approach, according to the president, is “to combine spending cuts with revenue — and that means asking the wealthiest Americans to pay a little more in taxes.”
Well, that’s not exactly what the exit polls said.
To the question “Should taxes be raised to help cut the budget deficit?” only 33 percent answered “yes” while 63 percent responded “no.” Isn’t that interesting? But nobody’s talking about this exit-poll nugget.

Geraldo On The Delay In Reporting Iran’s Attack On U.S. Drones: President ‘Had His Plate Full’ With Election


Just two days after President Obama’s re-election, General David Petraeus, the CIA Director, has resigned from the administration over an extramarital affair. Petraeus was slated to testify before Congress next week on the murder of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens, in Benghazi, Libya. Bret Baier of Fox News just tweeted, "With Petraeus’ resignation effective immediately, he will not testify next week & lawmakers are said to be 'stunned' by the announcement." 


Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has turned down an invitation to testify before the House Foreign Affairs Committee next Thursday on the Benghazi attack.

Not so fast! I have exciting news for you!

I shall keep this website in operation while I mentor a new person who has stepped up to continue the work that has been done here.  In the meantime I will post a few things each day, and I'll ask her if I would be allowed to submit a column now and then.  I'm excited!  I'll have more information to follow.
Boeing announced a major restructuring of its defense division on Wednesday that will cut 30 percent of management jobs from 2010 levels, close facilities in California and consolidate several business units to cut costs.[Next come the lawsuits for not having given them 6 weeks notice, as Obama instructed them to break the law and that if they did so, to help his get reelected, we the taxpayers would pay for ALL the lawsuits which will be brought.]
Two Iranian Su-25 fighter jets fired on an unarmed U.S. Air Force Predator drone in the Persian Gulf on November 1, the Pentagon disclosed on Thursday.
The incident, reported first by CNN, raised fresh concerns within the Obama administration about Iranian military aggression in crucial Gulf oil shipping lanes. [When was this information aired by CNN?  AFTER the election, of course.]
Mitt Romney's campaign got its first hint something was wrong on the afternoon of Election Day, when state campaign workers on the ground began reporting huge turnout in areas favorable to President Obama: northeastern Ohio, northern Virginia, central Florida and Miami-Dade. [Mitt Romney not only lost because of the media and OBama's hateful lies about Romney, but as I see it, for two other big reasons: the idiotic remarks of Todd Akin, and more so Romney's statement that he would actually try to OVERTURN Roe v Wade.  Goodbye black and singles vote right there.  I believe we should support life but not criminalize abortions, for they will occur whether we win or lose the Presidency on this issue.  There, I said it.]

How dare the sun be shining today?

Just to show you that YOU must keep informed, I share what I found on Facebook this morning: Sources confirmed today that hundreds of thousands of military absentee ballots were delivered hours after the deadline for them to be counted, with preliminary counts showing that they would have overturned the vote in several states and brought a victory for Governor Mitt Romney.
Officials say the ballots were delivered late due to problems within the military mail system. Tracking invoices show the ballots sat in a warehouse for a month, then they were accidentally labeled as ammunition and shipped to Afghanistan. At Camp Dwyer, Marine Sergeant John Davis signed for them and was surprised at the contents.
“It’s a shame,” Rear Admiral John Dawes said when asked for comment.  “I expected a delay so I ordered that everyone cast their votes eight months ago. It’s really unfortunate that our mail system failed us and directly affected the course of history.”  [Do you just suppose that the military might have voted against the man who left American military to die in Benghazi?  NO, REAR ADMIRAL, THIS IS NOT A SHAME, IT IS A TRAGEDY WHICH HAS BEEN REPEATED TIME AFTER TIME.  IT IS A DERELICTION OF DUTY.  WHY WAS THE ELECTION CALLED BEFORE THE MILITARY BALLOTS COULD BE COUNTED, AND WHY COULD THE MILITARY NOT VOTE BY EMAIL AS DID THE VICTIMS OF HURRICANE SANDY?  WHY???  WE SHOULD ALL BE AFRAID OF WHAT HAS BECOME OF OUR LEADERSHIP IN WASHINGTON.  MAYBE BALLOTS FOR 2014 SHOULD BE SENT NOW, AND THE MILITARY CAN THEN WRITE IN THEIR VOTES AND SEND THEM AS SOON AS WE KNOW WHO THE CANDIDATES ARE.  IS THAT WHAT IS NECESSARY?

Written by me on November 7: How dare the sun be shining today?  It is the darkest day for America in many decades.  Yesterday those who want our government to do something for them outvoted those who want to do something for our country.  The Era of Entitlement is now fully entrenched and probably won't be replaced until those Americans who actually pay for those entitlements decide to quit doing so - by retiring, closing their businesses along with the jobs they provide, or by having as their goal underperforming instead of outperforming others so that they too can get government goodies.  The people who don't work expect those who do work to do more to support them.  As Margaret Thatcher once said, “The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people's money. ”

Those who have gained all their political news from the likes of Bill Maher, John Stewart, and the mainstream media came, or were taken to the polls, en mass in order to remain on the dole, to receive their free Obama phones, and to have cradle-to-grave support from their government.  Obama had the constituency of those who don't even know who the vice-President is and who don't know American history, much less current events. He has the constituency of those who cannot discuss differences in opinion, who instead castigate with foul language and angry voices those with whom they disagree. A mainstream media willing to lie for their candidate, to actually hide from us any inconvenient truth, to fact check their opponent but not their chosen candidate, is much to blame for this outcome.  Without a Republican Senate, this President may be impeached for his dereliction of duty by abandoning our American military in Benghazi, but he will never be indicted or made to pay for his shameful inaction and lies following this act of war, for the Senate remains in Democrat hands.  The only upside I can find in the re-election of Barack Hussein Obama is that our inner cities will not now be burned down by the radical left, and conservatives are now not in so much physical danger from those who believe our only reason for not voting for Obama is that we are racists.  As was written in a Prague newspaper, "The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency."

The Progressive education being taught in our schools for the last 40 years has done its job.  Back in my day, Nikita Khrushchev said to the UN,  "America will fall without a shot being fired. It will fall from within."  Progressives have indeed infiltrated our government, our schools and our media, just as Nikita suggested at the time.  Allowing anyone to actually vote without proving they are an American citizen, or are who they say they are, is a perfect example of getting their job done.
With a passion which has deprived my family and myself of a normal life in retirement, I have managed my website for four years, 6 days a week, 52 weeks a year.  I have been told not to submit any more columns to my two local newspapers because they do not agree with my message, or "someone" complained.  I have spent 4-6 hours per day researching, writing newspaper columns and letters to the editor, posting columns on and RedState, never receiving anything for my efforts but my pride in having fought the good fight, in attempting to bring the truth to my readers.  I did this to secure a better future for my children and grandchildren.  They at least know that I did all I could think of to do, including spending 9 hours on Capitol Hill and being a poll challenger for 11 hours yesterday, participating in the apparently failed Project ORCA.    Voter fraud is almost always allowed and committed by the left, and military ballots are never delivered on time. 
I am too old to spend the rest of my life fighting on a daily basis for the next four years, so I leave that job to others. It is someone else's turn.  If any one of you is interested in continuing what I have begun, I will walk you through the process.  I have decided that this will be my last post, for I am discouraged and dismayed and see yesterday's election as the terrible tipping point - that Americans would reelect such a divisive, revenge-seeking President, who just last night announced that those who voted for him are "family" - intimating that the rest of us are not just fellow Americans, but are enemies of the Messiah against whom he will seek his stated revenge. As Obama's puppet-master, the Iranian born Valerie Jarrett, said:  “After we win this election, it’s our turn.  Payback time.  Everyone not with us is against us and they better be ready because we don’t forget. The ones who helped us will be rewarded, the ones who opposed us will get what they deserve. There is going to be hell to pay.  Congress won’t be a problem for us this time. No election to worry about after this is over and we have two judges ready to go.”  While I remain a true conservative and will continue to learn the truth for myself, I want you to do the same.  I  leave with you my two must-read websites from which I have received the bulk of my information.  The first is  Lucianne Goldberg is the publisher who had a lot to do with Linda Tripp's taping of her conversations with Monica Lewinsky. Her son is journalist Jonah Goldberg.   The second website is  I encourage you to visit each site daily, if only to read the headlines.

Please feel free to make comments or to send an occasional email to me - and please keep up the good fight for America.  She is in extreme danger.

How to destroy America - by Governor Lamm in 2004

A good column for you for Election Day!  Read it and reflect - then go to vote!

Former Colorado Governor Lamm gave a speech in 2004 to the Immigration-Overpopulation Conference in D.C., describing how multiculturalism can affect America.
He stunned the audience with his six plans to destroy America.  I am recalling this speech at this time due to the many “Occupy” protests occurring in America this autumn.  I ponder how his words reflect on today in America.
'First, to destroy America , turn America into a bilingual or multi-lingual and bicultural country... 
History shows that no nation can survive the tension, conflict, and antagonism of two or more competing languages and cultures. It is a blessing for an individual to be bilingual; however, it is a curse for a society to be bilingual. The historical scholar, Seymour Lipset, put it this way: 'The histories of bilingual and bicultural societies that do not assimilate are histories of turmoil, tension, and tragedy.' Canada, Belgium, Malaysia and Lebanon all face crises of national existence in which minorities press for autonomy,  if not independence. Pakistan and Cyprus have divided. Nigeria suppressed an ethnic rebellion. France faces difficulties with Basques, Bretons, Corsicans and Muslims.'

Lamm went on:

'Second, to destroy America, invent 'multiculturalism' and encourage immigrants to maintain their culture. Make it an article of belief that all cultures are equal; that there are no cultural differences. Make it an article of faith that the Black and Hispanic dropout rates are due solely to prejudice and discrimination by the majority. Every other explanation is out of bounds.

'Third, we could make the United States an 'Hispanic Quebec ' without much effort. The key is to celebrate diversity rather than unity. 
As Benjamin Schwarz said in the Atlantic Monthly recently: 'The apparent success of our own multi-ethnic and multicultural experiment might have been achieved not by tolerance but by hegemony. Without the dominance that once dictated ethnocentricy and what it meant to be an American, we are left with only tolerance and pluralism to hold us together.' Lamm said, 'I would encourage all immigrants to keep their own language and culture. I would replace the melting pot metaphor with the salad bowl metaphor. It is important to ensure that we have various cultural subgroups living in America enforcing their differences rather than as Americans, emphasizing their similarities.'

'Fourth, I would make our fastest growing demographic group the least educated. I would add a second underclass, unassimilated, undereducated, and antagonistic to our population. 
I would have this second underclass have a 50% dropout rate from high school.’

'My fifth point for destroying America would be to get big foundations and business to give these efforts lots of money. I would invest in ethnic identity, and I would establish the cult of 'Victimology.' 
I would get all minorities to think that their lack of success was the fault of the majority. I would start a grievance industry blaming all minority failure on the majority.'

'My sixth plan for America's downfall would include dual citizenship, and promote divided loyalties. I would celebrate diversity over unity
I would stress differences rather than similarities. Diverse people worldwide are mostly engaged in hating each other - that is, when they are not killing each other. A diverse, peaceful, or stable society is against most historical precept. People undervalue the unity it takes to keep a nation together. Look at the ancient Greeks. The Greeks believed that they belonged to the same race; they possessed a common language and literature; and they worshipped the same gods. All Greece took part in the Olympic games.. A common enemy, Persia , threatened their liberty.  Yet all these bonds were not strong enough to overcome two factors: local patriotism and geographical conditions that nurtured political divisions. Greece fell. 'E.Pluribus Unum' -- From many, one.  In that historical reality, if we put the emphasis on the 'pluribus' instead of the 'Unum,' we will 'Balkanize' America as surely as Kosovo.'

'Next to last, I would place all subjects off limits. Make it taboo to talk about anything against the cult of 'diversity.' 
I would find a word similar to 'heretic' in the 16th century - that stopped discussion and paralyzed thinking. Words like 'racist' or 'xenophobe' halt discussion and debate. Having made America a bilingual/bicultural country, having established multi-cultum, having the large foundations fund the doctrine of 'Victimology,' I would next make it impossible to enforce our immigration laws. I would develop a mantra: That because immigration has been good for America , it must always be good. I would make every individual immigrant symmetric and ignore the cumulative impact of millions of them.'

In the last minute of his speech, Governor Lamm wiped his brow. Profound silence followed. Finally he said, 'Lastly, I would censor Victor Hanson Davis's book 'Mexifornia.' His book is dangerous. It exposes the plan to destroy America.  If you feel America deserves to be destroyed, don't read that book.'

The second "Greatest Generation"!


One hundred years from now, history books may proclaim that the year 2012 is the year when Americans rose up to defeat the creeping liberalism of many decades to restore the vision of the Founding Fathers; the year that the Silent Majority finally got involved after seeing their beloved America destroyed by Progressive policies; by ousting leftist radicals of the 60’s who are now leading our nation in the office of the President and in his radical appointees.

We all know that the generation which came together in America to endure the Great Depression and then went on to defeat the worldwide takeover of Nazism and Adolph Hitler has been rightfully dubbed by Tom Brokaw as the Greatest Generation.  I’ll add here that this apparently didn’t make Michelle Obama proud. America lost the many lives of those in uniform to gain the world’s freedom, and Americans at home came together to support the war effort. They saved the world.

As those heroes, both military and families of military, are leaving us through old age and death, perhaps we can leave those remaining with the solace of watching a new generation of Americans stepping away from their apathy and comfort zones to save the world once again.  It would make them proud.

The election of 2008 gave us a stark choice between a new, hopeful, soaring candidate whom no one really knew and upon whom we could all project our hopes for change, versus a Viet Nam prisoner of war, scarred both by that battle and many battles during his years in the Senate.  There were many citizens who chose to just stay in the comfort of their homes on Election Day because they didn’t really like either choice.

By now much information has come to light about just who Barack Hussein Obama is, the radicals who mentored him during childhood and young adulthood, and his great dreams of total redistribution of our income, his Total Transformation of America.  We’ve learned that he views our country to be arrogant, no more special than any other country deems itself to be, and a country which should be brought down to the level of others.  His hopeful, naive hand of friendship to our enemies has proven to only make America weaker against those enemies, his hand bitten off at the wrist by a Middle East which is rife with violence and protests against the man they deem to be the worst of Infidels, the one with a Muslim name who has repeatedly bragged about having killed their hero Osama Bin Laden. They holler “We are all Osamas, Obama”.  The world is far more dangerous after the last four years of his stewardship.

We have witnessed a President who truly believes that when Congress does not give him what he wants, he has the authority to just write the laws himself via his many Executive Orders and Regulations which mostly countermand the votes of Congress and sometimes even his own pen signing a bill into law.  Some examples of this would be his recent refusal to prosecute illegal aliens, even giving up to 1.5 million their work permits, totally against the votes of Congress.  Other examples are his refusal to uphold the Defense of Marriage Act, his current preparation of an internet security law, and his recent gutting of Bill Clinton’s successful program of requiring able Welfare recipients to either work or prepare themselves for work. 

Democrats, liberals and Progressives had two years in control of both houses of Congress under Obama, so claims that the President didn’t fulfill his promises because of those rascally Republicans fall flat, for during that time all he was working on was a government controlled health care system which is intended to gradually create a single payer system such as Canada’s or Great Britain’s, a system broadly disliked by Americans.  The many promises of our President regarding the cost of Obamacare and our ability to keep our doctors and our current insurance have proven to be empty words.  Republicans cannot be blamed for the fact that Obama’s budget plan was defeated in the Democrat Senate 100-0.  Repeated bills offered by the Republican House were never allowed to be voted upon in the Senate, while the Senate has not produced it’s Constitutionally mandated budget for more than three years.

We have witnessed this President’s silence when hateful, untrue, divisive and inciting descriptions of Republicans and the Tea Party are spoken.  This is not surprising since this President is the leader of efforts to pit one American against another, one group against others.  In fact he once declared that Democrats and Hispanics must “punish their enemies and reward their friends”, speaking not of the world stage but of those in America who don’t agree with his agenda.

Now we Americans have the opportunity to end the ongoing efforts to rewrite not only duly passed laws, but the planned rewriting of our very Constitution.  We have the opportunity to turn back the heavy hand of government, the favoritism shown by this Administration to his donors and to unions, and Democrats’ plans to punish further the successes of those who create businesses and provide jobs. 

Mitt Romney is a decent man who pays his taxes as Congress has written the laws, has provided many thousands of jobs through his investments in companies, has held two big jobs for which he took no income (donating $1 million to the Olympics and also donating his $1.4 million in salary when he was CEO of the Olympics, and then taking no salary at all when Governor of Massachusetts) and he donates far more to charity than most could imagine.  He has quietly assisted those around him who needed it.  He possesses all the characteristics and morals of a man who, with reverence for America’s history, its Constitution and its best values, should occupy the White House.

I shall be voting for Mitt Romney because among other things he holds beliefs, principles and values consistent with what has made this country the light of the world.  He has proven experience in both the private sector and government and has spoken of his belief in the goodness and greatness of America, the real challenges which we face, and his deep love of our country and way of life.  The top 10% of wage earners in America are now paying 70% of all income taxes, while 47% pay no income tax at all.  Mitt Romney is not attempting to further “redistribute income just to make it fair” as does Obama (even after being told it would decrease government revenues), for he knows that beyond a certain point high taxation changes the actions of those who are having their money confiscated, resulting in less revenue to the government.  While conferring high value on those who do build a business, he seeks to raise the poor into the middle class and to raise the middle class into greater success, as has been the long tradition of America. It would appear that the current President is aiming to put as many Americans on government dependence as he possibly can, just as in 1997 he declared those “folks” to be the perfect  majority base for getting a progressive agenda passed and Democrats elected.  Mitt Romney seeks to bring Americans together instead of driving them apart in envy and hatred.

So I thank President Obama for clarifying for us just what needs to be done.   Become active for these last few days, spread the truth, do some phone banking, and encourage others to vote!  To all of those who stayed home in 2008 because you could not vote for John McCain – get out of your chairs and be part of history!  Don’t miss the chance to say, “I helped do that!”  Vote for Mitt Romney!   Become part of the Second Greatest Generation!
Saying all you need to know about the Benghazi deleliction of duty of this President and his administration is Judge Jeanine Piro in this video, as her 4 minutes tells it all:
Documents obtained by former Muslim Brotherhood member Walid Shoebat reportedly demonstrate the Obama administration is to blame for the deaths of Americans in the Benghazi consulate attack because it effectively empowered the Islamic terrorist organization al-Qaida to take over governance of Libya.
Shoebat reports a group of anti-al-Qaida Libyans in exile have come into possession of some highly classified documents that, in their view, “will bring the Obama Administration down.”
“Obama gift-wrapped Libya, handed it over to al-Qaida,” the group asserts, “and we can prove it.”
Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta announced on Sunday that General Carter Ham Commander of GOC Africa Command (Africom), headquartered in Stuttgart, Germany. (U.S. Africa Command is one of six unified geographic commands within the Department of Defense unified command structure.) for refusing to obey orders not to assist the US personnel in Benghazi on the night of September 11. Army General David Rodriguez has been appointed by President Obama to become replace him.
Gen. Ham refused to take responsibility for the decision not to provide essential air coverage and other support for the beleaguered personnel at the Consulate. After the information was leaked last week that three urgent requests for support were denied to the Americans trapped in the Consulate and the Annex, President Barack Obama said on Sunday, “The minute I found out what was going on, I gave three very clear directives – Number 1, make sure that we are securing our personnel and doing whatever we need to.” According to the highly decorated, four-star General, Carter Ham, the President is lying.

Obama campaign defends his comment to voters to get 'revenge', saying it was in response to Republican 'lies' about people losing their jobs.  {Well, that makes us feel so much better, after the many lies of Obama and his minions, such as Romney being a murderer and a felon, just for starters.}

As Election Day nears, Obama supporters step up riot threats

Posted at 9:18 pm on November 2, 2012 by Twitchy Staff
Beware out there! 
Some members of the military serving in Afghanistan were given “incorrect ballots” and may not be allowed to vote in the presidential election, according to the father of one of those soldiers.

Michael Boynton, of Valrico, Fla., told Fox News that his son is one of the disenfranchised soldiers who may not be able to vote.
“He said they gave out the ballots and before they could do anything — like mark them, they were ordered to return them,” Boynton said. “He said they were told the ballots were incorrect — but they were never given the so-called corrected ballots.”

WE THE PEOPLE - VOTE!; Obama's words inspire us; More Obama rules and regulations

Offer to take someone to the polls with you.  Encourage others to vote.

Be part of the SECOND GREATEST GENERATION - THOSE WHO TOOK A STAND AGAINST THE FUNDAMENTAL TRANSFORMATION OF BARACK OBAMA AND HIS PROGRESSIVE COHORTS !!  Those who turned back the radical, liberal agenda of those who have worked for decades and almost made their dreams come true are those who will be voting for President Mitt Romney!

Please open my Smilebox for inspiration!
Our President once said, “When we don’t pay close attention to the decisions made by our leaders, when we fail to educate ourselves about the major issues of the day, when we choose not to make our voices and opinions heard, that’s when democracy breaks down. That’s when power is abused. That’s when the most extreme voices in our society fill the void that we leave. That’s when powerful interests and their lobbyists are most able to buy access and influence in the corridors of power –- because none of us are there to speak up and stop them." Indeed, Mr. President.

[Does this seem like the right person to be investigating?] Obama-Appointed Benghazi Investigator Calls America Hotbed Of 'Islamophobia'

“Data shows that those Americans who do not know Muslims, who do not know much about Islam, are the ones who harbor the greatest feelings of prejudice,” he said.
There is a “strong, continuing, and perhaps, in an unfortunate way in some areas, growing, prejudice against Muslims and Islam,” he said.
[Direct from the White House website, August 9, 2012:] THE PRESIDENT:  I said I believe in American workers, I believe in this American industry, and now the American auto industry has come roaring back and GM is number one again.  So now I want to do the same thing with manufacturing jobs not just in the auto industry, but in every industry.  I don’t want those jobs taking root in places like China.  I want them taking root in places like Pueblo.
Last week, Obama asserted a kind of ownership of the storm by touring New Jersey in the now infamous embrace of Republican stalwart Governor Chris Christie. Now that we are all appalled by the lack of food, gas, water, heat, and the basic essentials of life throughout the storm zone, Obama’s government doesn’t look so good anymore.
Why didn’t FEMA stockpile food, water, and gasoline? We had a week’s notice to prepare for Sandy. There was no shortage of time. Did the government not realize that people needed to eat, drink, and drive?
All throughout America, we are asking these questions of our television sets as we watch the evolving story of human misery.
Meanwhile, Obama has resumed the campaign trail, pounding the opposition in the same relentless and partisan style which he used before the storm. When Obama said that voting was “the best revenge,” he threw away whatever presidentiality he displayed in touring storm damage earlier in the week.
Here are just some of the headlines concerning Sandy:

Obama's Cleveland Rally Attendance 20x Lower than 2008 [80,000 now 2800]


There's no reason to act surprised about the Administration's handling of this crisis,  after all.  Did you assume as apparently pundits like Peggy Noonan and David Brooks did that a community organizer known largely for voting "present" was up to the task? Or did they miss this luftmensch's   blather in 2007?
"In 2007, Obama was asked in a Democratic primary debate what he would do if terrorists launched an attack on US soil, and we knew it was the work of al Qaeda. Although Libya is half a world away, given that the consulate is sovereign US territory, it isn't completely incomparable.
Obama responded thusly:
'Well, the first thing we'd have to do is make sure that we've got an effective emergency response, something that this administration failed to do when we had a hurricane in New Orleans. And I think that we have to review how we operate in the event of not only a natural disaster, but also a terrorist attack.
The second thing is to make sure that we've got good intelligence, A, to find out that we don't have other threats and attacks potentially out there; and B, to find out do we have any intelligence on who might have carried it out so that we can take potentially some action to dismantle that network.
But what we can't do is then alienate the world community based on faulty intelligence, based on bluster and bombast. Instead, the next thing we would have to do, in addition to talking to the American people, is making sure that we are talking to the international community.

500 Admirals, Generals to Endorse Romney

The group will post a full page ad in the Washington Times on Monday. The advertisement will have the headline, “We, the undersigned, proudly support Governor Mitt Romney as our nation’s next President and Commander-in-Chief,” followed by the names of the former military commanders.
The list comes as a Military Times survey revealed that active duty, National Guard, and military reserve members support Romney over Obama by a two to one margin.
