Duncan Hunter should apologize IMMEDIATELY

Duncan Hunter just made the egregious and patently false claim that "only conservatives and members of conservative families" enlist and fight for the United States of America.

What a slap in the face to all members of the American Armed Services. Duncan Hunter should apologize IMMEDIATELY, and he should be ashamed at his lack of factual knowledge and overall incompetence.

Didn't watch the debate, but just reacting to your post... Military personnel are predominantly Conservative... by nature...

Jim Webb and his book "Born Fighting" may prove very valuable for your research into the subject :-)

Spank:
My grandfather is a Navy vet. He's also a Democrat. I'd appreciate it if you wouldn't demean his service.

By the way, you're party hasn't been doing much spankin' recently, has it? Maybe you should change your name to "Wish We Could Spank That Donkey?"

You've misquoted him. He said the majority are conservative, which as far as I know, is correct.

I am a Duncan Hunter fan and also a fan of getting quotes correct.
SK Johnson is correct, your quote is false. From the CNN transcript

"The reason for that, even though people point to the Israelis and point to the Brits and point to other people as having homosexuals serve, is that most Americans, most kids who leave that breakfast table and go out and serve in the military and make that corporate decision with their family, most of them are conservatives."

Why are you posting false quotes? Transcripts are not hard to find and cite. I will now quote you -
"should be ashamed at his lack of factual knowledge and overall incompetence."
Indeed.

Insults from bloggers who don't support the troops beyond a sticker on their car and words on the internet really don't phase me.

But thanks for dropping by.

DAN!!!!!! How's it goin'?

I hate to tell you Jaime.. but the Dems are being Spanked because they are only electing Conservatives to office! Now I will give you Kaine he is a Liberal.

But Mark Warner and especially Jim Webb are Conservatives... Chap Peterson.... Creigh Deeds... Unless the district is packed for an easy Dem victory...

In the short run you guys win some battles, but we are winning the war! I have to run out and buy 1000 rounds of ammo and a couple guns...

And by that he means 1000 tabs of Oxycontin and a couple of black dildoes.

"And by that he means 1000 tabs of Oxycontin and a couple of black dildoes."

It is amazing how some people always sink to the lowest denominator especially when they can be anonymous in a conversation...

of course what I meant was, I got to go and do something really Conservative... and that Jim Webb would really approve of...

The US Military votes 75% to 80% for Republicans.

What Presidential Candidate Congressman Hunter said was true.

Not any more they don't. The military is just as disappointed with the leadership as everyone else is.
