I am an American, a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps, and a member of the Republican Party and I am outraged at the irresponsibility of the GOP's reprehensible and shameful use of misinformation to divide our country and pit American against American.

This divided America has a number of people who are clueless and narrow-minded. There are Americans who fail to demand facts, issues or well-reasoned arguments. Rather than research issues from independent sources and make intelligent decisions on their own, there are those of us who absorb the self-serving language of such people as Sean Hannity, FOX News, and Rush Limbaugh.

This is unfortunate because Senator Obama has proven to be a dynamic leader, with a vision to achieve real fiscal responsibility, develop intelligent foreign policy, re-build our military and restore, support and defend the U.S. Constitution.

Why do I support Barack Obama? He has the (1) judgment; (2) temperament; (3) vision; (4) and true American values to be a great President.

Thank you for your service, and for your common sense.

You clearly are way ahead of the average Republican in critical thinking skills.

Welcome to the winning team!

This eerily sounds like an Obama Campaign post. No military guy is this shallow to make that switch easily because of FoxNews.

I know military people. They are hard on their ways.
