Why do the troops hate the troops?

One wonders what the neocon Republicrites will do with this little factoid.  According to a recent analysis by the Center for Responsive Politics, troops deployed overseas, especially those deployed to the war zones, have been donating heavily to anti-war candidates.  Barack Obama currently has a 6-to-1 lead over rival John Sidney McCain, with Ron Paul trailing a close second.  Combined, Obama and Paul lead McCain by 10 to 1 over McCain.

And Hillary Clinton?  Not even in the top five.  She lags a very distant 7th, with less than 1/3 of McCain’s contributions.

So, back to the original question.  Neocon wack-jobs and chickenhawks like Sean Hannity, Ann Coulter, Michelle Malkin and Rush Limbaugh have been falsely claiming criticim of the war means being anti-American or “not supporting the troops”.  So, what to make of this?  The troops apparently don’t support themselves!

The answer is quite simple, really.  After the way the Republicans have lied to, failed, used, abused, and betrayed the military they claim to support, how can they expect them to support McCain in the upcoming election?

How can the McCain expect any support from the troops, when he’s promised them nothing but blood, war and death for years to come?  Here’s a news flash for all you “support the troops by keeping them in hell” hypocrites:  they train to fight, but most don’t want to.  War is the last thing a warrior wants to do.  He does it because he’s trained for it and because he trusts that his leaders will make the right decisions.

The Republicans have repeatedly failed the troops and betrayed them.  And now it’s payback time.
