No surprise seeing how the Military Times poll shows the Soldiers favor Romey over Obama 66-20

Didn't this or something similar happen in the last election?

They should get it fixed. But if you look at a more recent article all of the service people received ballots.

http://www.maciverinstitute.com/2012/10/update-romney-campaign-may-sue-to-guarantee-wisconsins-military-voters-ballot-access/

"There is a difference between sending out ballots 45 days before the election, and the ballots having 45 days of transit time (because the ballots can get back by the Friday after the election).


"All but six ballots were sent out with 45 days of transit time.

"Of the six, five were emailed to the voters, so they received them immediately. The sixth voter is in basic training in Georgia, and his ballot was sent to him by mail on October 1. He did not have an email address. He also received information about how to use the new MyVote.WI.gov site to receive an absentee ballot immediately online.

"Our office has been diligent in following up with the clerks who failed to meet the deadlines.

So, is this Obama's fault or the fault of the WI municipalities that failed to send out the absentee ballots? Are you saying the the Obama administration controls the actions of these WI municipalities?

No, the state Democratic party does.
They also control the "bi-partisan" GAB, or Government Accountability Office.

In addition, the state Democrat party is leading an effort to make sure all incarcerated personnel are getting registered.
And the GAB will not check for felons.

Prisoners Voting----YES
Military Personnel Voting--not so much

Making excuses of any kind for even 1 service man not getting to vote is

BRAVO SIERRA!!!!!!
Anyone trying to rationalize this is pathetic.
We should go above and beyond to take care of those standing the line for YOUR freedom you are so willing to give away!!!!:(

BS again... Every election the dems try every trick in the book to stifle the military vote because it is heavily Republican... Kind of funny since they always say that only the minorities and poor get "stuck" in the military and have to go to war etc... Sort of what you would think would be the DEM base...

The GAB in WI is the body that upholds election laws at all levels.
They have refused to do anything about this blatant repeat violation.
Some of these same municipalities have done the same thing in recent elections, no penalty involved.
If it was thought that these voters would be voting in line with the Democrat controlled municipalities that committed this crime, you would be screaming.

Jeez Stan...I woulda thought that with Walker in control all the ducks would be lined up.

Pesky democrat county clerks screwed things up again.

Lets see.. Dem convention over 9/6/12. County Clerks get official notice of convention results a few days later. They are only part timers mostly, so a couple more days. Draw up ballots...proof read 'em...a few more days.... send 'em out to get printed...KINKO'S screws 'em up... proof read 'em again. Plus they won't take a municipal CC cause it's maxed out. List of absentee voters needs to be sorted by military vs lazy old folks.... a few more days...then when ballots are printed they need to be labeled, address checked and USPS postage labeled....a few more days.
Then they are dropped at the good ole USPS where they sit for a few more days....Whoops... its now past the 22nd of Sep.
45 days gone to hell.

Question, was this a conspiracy?

Were any of the county clerks R's?

Or....Was this just business as usual?

I agree, the military should have the right to vote by absentee ballot....as long as they show a state issued photo ID...Right...?
We don't want to mail an absentee ballot to mohamed the cook at APO xxx Afghanistan. Do we?

In WI the Governor does not preside over the precincts voting procedures.
The GAB does.
The officers of the GAB are appointed by the Governor.
Currently, the sitting members were appointed by former Governor Jim Doyle, a Democrat.
The munici[palities that did not send the forms out on time are all controlled by Democrats.

In WI we the people voted for a "Voter ID Law."
1 judge in Madison WI has stopped the law, perhaps you know this, perhaps not.
Either way the reference is foolish.
Having said that, in case you didn't know, all military personnel have picture ID's, so not an issue there, is it?

So......as usual, your smarmy, sullen, skewed perspective is a tad off the mark in regard to the facts.

But we have come to expect nothing more or less from you.

Have another one, and try to make sense.

Good luck in OK..............

He would need to HAVE some respect for those men in order to show any.

You've never seen anyone with higher rank in a conversation with someone walk by someone of lower rank and not stop their conversation? You must live in an alternate universe.

I wasn't talking about "someone". I was talking about Obama. The man can barely bring himself to face the flag during the national anthem. He has no respect for the military or the servicemen. To pretend otherwise is just deceiving yourself.

A pictured ID has nothing to do with a state issued ID. Kind of stretching it a little aren't you. Do you really hate our men and women serving our country that bad or do you just hate voters having to prove who they are.

They stopped their conversation every time they were saluted to respond with the appropriate greeting that went with the salute.

For a salute is only the first half. Good morning, afternoon, evening sir/ma'am is the second half. Every officer in the Marine Corps (since I was in the Marine Corps I will only use the branch of service I am familiar with) has and will respond to the appropriate greeting. It is called manners and showing appreciation for the respect given.

You are off the mark on this statement.

It's inappropriate (military protocol) to salute while talking on the phone. BTW, I live in a military universe.
