got an obamacan down my block who proudly flew a bush sign in 00 and 04. he's voting obama unless hillary's on the ticket.
my father in law also falls into this type. hates hillary (irrationally, of course), but loves obama. same with my mother in law. same with the 20 or so obamacans who showed up to caucus in my precinct.
i know all this is merely anecdotal, but i've been running into obamacans for at least a year. they are psyched about voting for him. the only thing that could possibly get them to pull the lever for mccain is if we add hillary to the ticket.
i imagine that hearing that is incredibly frustrating for clinton supporters. frankly it's frustrating for me too, because all the hillary-hate is completely irrational. but their minds are set against her and there's simply no changing them. believe me i have tried.
there are many reasons people sign up to go into the army.
for one, some are gung ho to kill some folks. but for many many others they join because it's the only way out of a life of minimum wage jobs and struggle. my hubby is one of those. he joined in the 90s and was blessed to serve it clinton's peacetime army. he is proud of his service. i would hope that his time served would be respected just as much as someone who joined during wartime.
and for many who joined the army after 9/11, they thought they are going to get shipped to afghanistan to go after bin laden. bush then pivoted - as we all know - and started sending our folks over to a sand trap for lies.
so ya know, if he joined up after 9/11, doesn't he have every right to be resentful that he's fighting in a civil war instead of trying to put bin laden's head on a stick?
