42 Medal of Honor recipients endorsed Mitt Romney today…

    Obviously not significant to many of you, but for those that care...what does this show to you?

      It shows me that not all brave people are especially intelligent. hmm

      The Fraternal Order of Police has refused to endorse Romney despite supporting conservative candidates for every election in its existence except for Clinton.

      That's a group representing 325 000 serving police officers so I think it's rather more significant.

        Probably because they are pretty much a union/lobbying firm. I’m not going to argue with a socialist leaning person about the difference between 42 MOH recipients and 300k+ “police vets”. Last I checked the MOH is one of the highest honors given to the bravest of individuals, and the FOP membership only requires some dues. 
        Clearly you are one of the many I spoke of, sorry that this gesture only brings about sarcasm and dismissal.

          325 000 currently serving police officers in a group that has endorsed Republicans almost every time including Bush for both his elections is entirely more significant that 45 MOH recipients, both groups risk their lives for the good of everyone, and undoubtedly there are many many many medal recipients in the Fraternal Order of Police, by pure numerical basis the 42 pale in comparison.

      While I have a huge amount of respect for these heroes, the honors they have received do not make their opinions more valuable then the average citizen.
