Which Candidate Supports the Troops?

The troops say Obama:

"Troops serving abroad have given nearly six times as much money to Obama's presidential campaign as they have to McCain's, the Center for Responsive Politics said."

Of course, the McCain people don't like that reality, so they make shit up:

John McCain has been endorsed by more retired admirals and generals than Barack Obama has military donors," McCain spokesman Michael Goldfarb said in a statement.

"We feel confident that many U.S. troops stationed overseas will support John McCain in the election this fall, but we suspect most are too busy doing the important work of defending this country than to make political contributions," Goldfarb said.

Can you get more pathetic than that? Lead off with a blatant lie, and then give an excuse as lame as "the dog ate my homework". Never let facts get in the way of good speculation. Nonetheless, let the record show Goldfarb thinks the 83% of soldiers that contributed to Obama are NOT busy doing the important work of defending this country. One wonders why Goldfarb would make up as to what they are doing? Now who is disrespecting the troops?
