Russia has invaded a sovereign neighboring state and threatens a democratic government elected by its people. Such an action is unacceptable in the 21st century.

Which one are you referring to?

The one that says that the pundits who ALL make over 250k a year will continue to insist that Obama will raise everyones taxes, or the one that points out that Hillary's menopausal minions are *goshdarn* crazy and bitter?

It's a meaningless statistic.

MOST campaign donations would come from the Mrs. or Mr. watching the homefront.

My guess: Active duty leans 2/3 to 3/4 Republican.

Obama got $60,642 from 134 troops there, compared to McCain's $10,665 from 26 troops -- a 6-to-1 edge.

maybe i trust the media too much, but it says from troops there, i'll take it at face value.

It's not about 'Trusting'. I have no doubt that the numbers are real.

It's about being able to think critically about what you just read:

That's 160 troops donating to anyone out of 140,000 (more or less). < .02 percent, and less than .01 pct are donating to Obama.

It's a number so low as to be meaningless....
