    $1Million in "donations" - so yeah, whether or not it's lining the pockets of their uniforms they are receiving money.

      the millions they likely were paid by the right wing billionaire plutocratic cabal whom will spend any amount of money to bring Obama down. I can see Freedom Works writing a $3 million check for each retired seal to work actively to get this new "swift boat" message out to the public.

        The super rich have so much money to throw around, I'm sure it's not even a second thought to them.

        Witness Sheldon Adelson who I believe said he would be willing to spend 100 million dollars to defeat President Obama.

        Got to ask yourself, what is his ultimate goal besides defeating the president? That is a boatload of Venetian hate and influence in our presidential election. The swiftboating of the president is just an extension of all the other fetid lies being peddled by the wealthy.

        Class warfare has been declared by these plutocrats and we are left unprotected. The Republicans have been handed their marching orders by the likes of Adelson and others. Romney & Ryan are their puppets in empty suits eager to steal what is left of the middle class, aged, sick and poor.
