    If McCain is failing this badly with veterans, his chances of keeping Virginia in the general election are terrible.

    You might have noticed Obama's ratings have been slipping ever so slowly over the last few weeks... The military is generally pro-Republican. I know this because I've been around the military my whole life. Republicans tend to fund the military better. Show me a Democrat who is insane liberal-left that supports troop funding. Then I'll believe this article.

    There's nothing to believe. You're entitled to your opinion.

    You're not entitled to your own facts. Troops want out. McCain wants in. Is that somehow too complex?

    Simple: no one wants a war-mongerer for a president.

    No one wants war period. Who said war was popular? Sometimes it is necessary tho.

    But McCain seems to be the pro-war "let's stay in Iraq" candidate and the troops are obviously reacting to that.

    Apparently violence is down in Iraq, al-Qaeda is pretty much out of the picture now and the Iraqi government is starting to clean things up now, so that might be the best idea now.

    The American public begs to disagree in this case.
