I'd not read too much into it. People are more likely to respond to a poll when they are PO'd about something.

This may be the reason military people are considered "domestic terrorists" by the Obama administration.  It isn't clear to me, though, if black military people are included in the same category.  If I had to judge by what the administration has done and said in the past, I would have to conclude it is only whites who are the terrorist category.

Sadly that is true...from the few black military friends we have they all support Obama...only because he is black...

To the administration - yes. It's a blind spot of theirs.

I know a lot of black and hispanic Vets in the US, folk I worked with over the years and we keep in touch. They are majorly PO'd by Obama. They go out, risk their insides suddenly being outsides (that hurts), come home and - not only do they have the usual problems about getting a job (It is way harder for a black guy to get a job than a white guy) but now they have to deal with the whole "Veterans are unstable psychopaths" thing as well.

Most of them voted for Obama in '08. They didn't in '12.
