If that is true, at least we know what choice he made and a little of his past pre-politician record.
Excellent dodge and spin on RMoney's deferment from the draft as a Mormon 'minister of religion' for the duration of his missionary work in France. He must love France too.

I do not agree with President Obama on many political issues, but I think he is absolutely correct in honoring veterans today.

(By the way: Thank you veterans everywhere for the sacrifices you have made on behalf of America. We have a lot to be grateful to you for, and you deserve more recognition than you often receive in my opinion. May God Bless You!)

Come on, wake up people .
Am I the only American on this blog site that remembers the 2010 midterm elections ??????

Where THESE liberals/democrats were doing everything they could to block the military from voting !
Claiming how the military tends to vote Republican .
And I believe that it started in Illinois . Where they purposely sent the military ballots late, knowing they wouldn't return in time !
I am so sick and tire of all these lying ass liberals and illegal aliens putting down the American people, calling us these horrible names while lying to us !
This election is it people , we have to show these liberals that we Americans run America ! They are destroying our country !

No, but you are the only teabagger so far who has pushed that BULLSH!T claim.

Under President Obama, the Demcoratic lead Hose and Senate passed the MOVE Act in 2009 as part of the fiscal 2010 defense appropriations bill., which establishes deadlines states must follow in order to ensure that overseas and military votes get counted. States unable to send out ballots in accordance with the law’s requirement that they be sent 45 days before the midterm election - usually because they held primaries too close to the deadline - had to apply for a waiver from the DOJ and the Department of Defense must also approve.

SOME counties is SOME states were slightly late in mailing out absentee ballots under the new guidelines. Those states included: Kansas (7 counties), Mississippi (22 counties), Alaska, Colorado, Illinois (6 counties and the DOJ ordered extension to the voters in those 6 counties.), the District of Columbia, Hawaii, Nevada, North Dakota (13 states up to 6 days late), New York, New Mexico (6 counties- 4 days late), Wisconsin, U.S. Virgin Islands, the territory of Guam.

Teabaggers will throw veterans under the bus if it means debasing the PRESIDENT.

Thank-you Veterans.

Here's an illegal alien lying to us. Read this criminal and click the link :
We-the-People now have an actively race-biased Department of Justice and a DOJ that seems bent upon suppressing as many "non-minority" (aka "white") and US Military votes as possible in the upcoming general election. Political Correctness and an overt bias in favor of Marxist Democrat totalitarian leaders keep the ObamaMedia (ABC, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, CBS etc.) from reporting on anything negative about The Obama. Although a few members of these media are now placing their little toes in the water and offering "tee-ninesy" (that's VERY little, folks) criticisms of the American Stalin, most still refuse to report the truth about anything — let alone their revered dictator-in-chief. But, as ugly as some find it, the truth MUST be reported.

BULLSH!T opinions from Alan Keyes' Reich-wing POS site is simply that: BULLSH!T opinion by a bunch of Reich-wing teabaggers. But they do appeal to the hate-mongers, race-baiters, intellectually challenged, and totally brainwashed misinformed teabaggers who are too dumb to know BULLSH!T opinion based on an absurd premises, BALD FACED LIARS, and hyperbole crap is just BULLSH!T opinion.

If it had been a big deal Dubya's DOJ would have criminally prosecuted those thugs. Interesting to note NO VOTER has ever claimed they were intimidate by those guys and the cops on the sence just told them to move on.

But paranoid Reich-wing hate-mongers, red-neck crackers and teabaggers really get their panties in a wad. Show the power of Fuxed news on the mentally challenged.

However, it is not all good news. Some 29% of active duty military voters said they never received their requested absentee ballots, an increase of 16% over the reports of 2008. This indicates a remarkable disenfranchisement of some 120,000 potential voters.

Alaska, Colorado, Illinois, Nevada and Wisconsin – some of the fiercest battlegrounds of the of the 2010 midterm election -- are among the 14 states and territories singled out by the U.S. Justice Department for not complying with the federal law that says absentee ballots must be sent in time for overseas soldiers, sailors and airmen to have their votes counted.

The Military Voting Protection Project, working with law students in 14 states, found that numerous state and local governments failed to comply with the Military and Overseas Voter Enforcement (MOVE) Act, signed by President Barack Obama last year, to address the long-standing problem of getting ballots to members of the U.S. military in time for their votes to be counted.

"Illinois is precisely the reason why you can't wait until a week before the election to try and resolve a clear violation of military voting rights."

- Of the nearly 2 million military voters residing in the states covered by the report, only 89,887 or 4.6 percent cast an absentee ballot that counted in 2010.
- While 310,625 military voters requested an absentee ballot in 2010, only 31 percent of those ballots were returned to be counted by local election officials.
- There were widespread failures by federal officials—in particular, the Department of Justice—to implement and enforce a new federal law designed to protect military voters. These failures had a clear and undeniable impact on military voters.
