500 Generals and Admirals Buy Ad To Endorse Mitt

Tomorrow’s Washington Times, according to the Washington Free Beacon, will include a full page ad of 500 admirals and generals who support Mitt. Says the Free Beacon:

Nearly 500 former military admirals and generals are poised to endorse Mitt Romney…

The group will post a full page ad in the Washington Times on Monday. The advertisement will have the headline, “We, the undersigned, proudly support Governor Mitt Romney as our nation’s next President and Commander-in-Chief,” followed by the names of the former military commanders.

A spokesman for the group emphasized its independence from the official campaign. The Romney campaign has not sanctioned this ad buy, a spokesman said, and the members of the group are paying the fee themselves.

[Emphasis added]

Here’s the ad:

The Free Beacon also links to a story in the Military Times reporting that in a survey of 3,100 of the professional core military, Mitt is favored 2:1 over Obama. Among those that provide the “blanket of freedom,” that’s not even close.

About Paul Johnson:

Paul Johnson is an attorney for venture capitalists and their portfolio companies by day, husband and father of three teenage boys by night. He’s an avid supporter of Mitt Romney for president and, as a graduate of Brigham Young University, a BYU football and basketball fan. Paul also enjoys competing in triathlons. Because he’s in the “Clydesdale” (over 200 lb.) class, he has even had podium finishes from time to time. Paul also has the distinction of being a big enough U2 fan to be willing to travel to Dublin to see them in their native environment.

    This must be being done out of pure intent, wanting to protect the military and courage because I think it is hard for a military man, even though they are former commanders, to go against a Commander in Chief.
