    It s time to take back the veteran and military vote from the republican party.

    Lets show vets that Democrats mean business not just rhetoric when it comes to "Supporting the Troops"

    Obama should be able to say that one difference between him and McCain on the military is that while he did not serve he supports the troops while McCain who should know better screws the troops.

      It will take some time, but the ingredients are there -- there was a strong buyer's remorse toward the administration among the troops where I was stationed last.

      A key feature: getting the constant diet of "hate the Democrats" off the air.  As I posted elsewhere, at least an hour of every day on Armed Forces Radio was devoted to Rush Limbaugh.  When that's the only English-language station available, as it often is overseas, you've got a captive audience being bombarded with Republican propaganda.  And it's everywhere -- in your car, in the workplace, in the barber shop and commisary and exchange and so on.

      through the backroads of beautiful upscale Chagrin Falls and there was a house with a yard sign t hat said "Support the troops. End the war." Don't think we don't have a shot at taking this district (Oh-14) come November.
