Majority in Military Do NOT Support Bush

Is it safe to say that when the military turns against their commander in chief, that that should be a good enough sign that the commander in chief’s war policies are bad?

  1. Taken from the article which you linked to:

    “The mail survey, conducted Nov. 13 through Dec. 22, is the fourth annual gauge of active-duty military subscribers to the Military Times newspapers. The results should not be read as representative of the military as a whole; the survey’s respondents are on average older, more experienced, more likely to be officers and more career-oriented than the overall military population.”

    Having personnally subscribed to the Army Times in the past I found it to be a poor source of any reliable information. It is a newspaper that while catering to the military is not always accurate in dipicting the view of military members or military policies.

    Having said that I agree that almost any one in uniform would tell you that the military is stretched too thin. Between fighting two wars and all of the humanitarian missions that are ongoing, there just seems to be no balance.

  2. I like that the survey is of “older, more experienced” military officers and soldiers. I think their input should have more credibility than some wet-behind-the-ears kid from a Texas hick town.
