Retired generals and admirals overwhelmingly prefer Romney

Over at Maggie’s Farm, Bruce Kesler provides a partial list of the nearly 500 retired senior military officers who are placing an ad Monday in the Washington Times indicating their support for Mitt Romney’s White House bid. And that is not the entire universe of military leaders backing Mitt. Kesler knows “two former top Admirals who wanted to sign but were not reached”.

Still, he reports that this is the “largest assemblage” ever of retired top military leaders organized to back a presidential candidate. By contrast, only 5 former generals and admirals are backing Obama.

That’s almost a 100 to 1 margin.

Active duty military also prefer the Republican. According to the Washington Free Beacon, “a Military Times survey revealed that active duty, National Guard, and military reserve members support Romney over Obama by a two to one margin.”



  1. I would trust these guys more than some pundit on the issue of foreign policy.

  2. Of course they prefer Romney and Republicans. These military Gods with their six figure retirements get huge salaries from sitting on the boards of giant military contractors. No war, no big bucks.

    These persons are shameless and disgusting.
