“It ruffles our feathers when someone claims that Barack Obama doesn’t support the troops, because the Obamas have gone out of their way to understand the military, its families, and its veterans,” Stephanie Himel-Nelson, deputy director of outreach for Blue Star Families for Obama, told OffTheBus. “In fact, Michelle Obama has adopted military families as one of her causes.”

Military support and funding for essentials is a very important issue to me. Particularly since this is something McCain campaigns so strongly on. The Rolling Stone’s recent article “Make Believe Maverick” really does a great job of spelling out yet another reason why anyone with ties to the military should be shocked and appalled by McCain’s assumption that HE is the pro-military candidate. He has never done anything in his life that helped another veteran unless it first aided him in his personal ambitions to be better than his father.

I know military heroes, Mr. McCain. I am related to military heroes. And you, sir, are no military hero.
