359 U.S. generals and admirals support Mitt Romney

Update (Nov. 5, 2012):

The 359 has now grown to 500 retired U.S. generals and admirals who are explicitly endorsing Gov. Romney, including 5 formers members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

On the eve of the third and last 2012 presidential debate — on foreign policy — comes news that Governor Mitt Romney has the support of more than 300 retired U.S. generals and admirals.

The Mitt Romney campaign announced Wednesday it has formed a Military Advisory Council made up of 359 retired generals and admirals, each of whom has expressed his willingness to support a President Romney by providing expert national security advice if called upon to do so.

Gov. Romney said in a statement: “I am deeply honored to have the support of so many of our most accomplished military leaders. Together we will restore our military might and ensure that America can defend and protect our interests, our allies, and our people, both at home and abroad. I will never forget that the greatest responsibility of an American president is in exercising the role of commander-in-chief. That role is sacred, and when I am president, I will never put my own political interests ahead of our military and our men and women in uniform.”

Among the better-known military men on Romney’s Military Advisory Council are Army Gen. Tommy Franks, the key architect of the military plan to oust Saddam Hussein, former Commandant of the Marine Corps Gen. James Conway, former Pacific Command chief Adm. Timothy Keating, and former Joint Chiefs Chairman Army Gen. Hugh Shelton, who was the top military officer at the end of the Clinton administration and who led the planning for the 1999 intervention in Kosovo. Shelton had endorsed Hillary Clinton for president in 2008.

Gen. Franks said: “I’m proud to be supporting Mitt Romney in this critical election about our nation’s future. Governor Romney is committed to restoring America’s leadership role in the world. Instead of playing politics with our military, he will strengthen our defense posture by reversing the president’s devastating defense cuts. The fact of the matter is that we cannot afford another four years of feckless foreign policy. We need level-headed leadership which will protect our interests and defend our values with clarity and without apology.”

Gen. Conway said: “I consider the unprecedented national debt amongst the five greatest threats to the security of our great nation. And yet, I see no indication the current administration, if re-elected, is intent on changing that trajectory.  Clearly defense should bear a portion of the burden in order to regain control of our debt, but the idea of massive military cuts — at a time of increased global instability — should not even be in the cards. As I listen to Mitt Romney, I am convinced that he ‘gets it’.”

  2. The troops supported Ron Paul while he ran for Republican primary, he had more troop donations than all other candidates, including and especially Obama, combined. I wonder if this show of solidarity from the military leadership is a continuation of that spirit onto anyone other than Obama, or if they actually would choose him over the Third Party candidates who want to end the imperialism and bring them home.

  4. Mr Romney, this is a distinct honor. You have some tall orders to fill. These fine men and the American people are going to hold you to your word. Trust has to be earned along with respect. We will be watching you, like a chicken on a bug. Every step of the way.

  5. I believe that Ron Paul had it right, with less government in our lives. Obama is trying to bankrupt the country…..He is a traitor. All this talk about Romney being rich…..shit…Would you rather have a president who has done nothing but mooch of the system for his whole life, or someone who actually knows how to do business?

  6. Ghost Of Cromwell

    Well, it looks like we just might get a military state under Romney after all. I suppose we should send all our children to military academies in the deep South as well. How about that one close to ole Miss?

    The funniest one is number 218: Rear Admiral Patrick David Moneymaker, USN, (Ret.). I almost burst out laughing.

    But don’t forget Sherman, that war is hell. Don’t forget George McGovern, veteran of 35 bombing missions over Europe in WWII, and one of our best Liberals. Don’t forget Smedley, deflecting the plot against Roosevelt. Please forget all of your chickenhawk conservatives.

    • Hey, “Ghost of Cromwell” Passerby1,

      Pretending to be someone else doesn’t fool us ’cause — GASP! – you have the exact same IP address in Seattle, WA, as that religious bigot and fallen Catholic Passerby1.

      As for your at-once hysterical and childish comment (“The funniest one is number 218: Rear Admiral Patrick David Moneymaker, USN, (Ret.). I almost burst out laughing”), I’m embarrassed for you. Seriously, at age 47, you really should try to grow up.

        Thank you for your expertise in the fine art of accurate troll stomping.
        Perhaps we can give this move a name, like “Accu-Stomp”.

      • Ghost of Cromwell (yeah, that guy)

        Re “Ghost of Cromwell” moniker: I wouldn’t necessarily say “troll”, as I have blogged in the past, and I know, that you know, that this is coming from the same IP. I was just seeking a moniker that seemed to fit how I really feel, as I think Cromwell is one of history’s most interesting figures, and like it or not as to his methods,, he at least rendered to the American colonists the idea that there existed the possibility of establishing a country not under the British crown, or some kind of overwhelming power. In that way we still stand on the shoulders of this giant. There is a great 1970 movie about him starring Richard Harris. As per the admiral, I am sure he is a fine fellow, but I do have a sense of humor and was laughing with, not at. Don’t you ever laugh? I’m sure you’ve seen Letterman or Leno.

        The chickenhawks referred to are the clique in the previous prez administration who were avid for war, and for sending others to war, but had shirked the draft themselves. I think Smedley had something to say about this kind of phenomenon in his 1935 book. And yes, please feel free to add a previous Dem president to the chickenhawk list if you like. I really don’t mind. And note, nowhere have I said anywhere that I am actually a fan of Barack Obama. And, by the way, we do have the (natural) right to accept or reject any religion, and reason against any one we would like, or at least last I thought about it. We are not “permitted” it by the government, we have it already as a natural right.

        Well, this election is shaping up to be close. May the lesser of the two evils win? And, if you’re ever in or around Seattle, enjoy one of the fine microbrews.

  7. This is great news for many reasons. The reason I value most is that they stand as a barrier to the use of any military force against American citizens. Our volunteer military is made up of people who will say no to a Commander in Chief who issues an evil order to round up conservatives.

  9. Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this most wonderful post! I hope that Governor Romney can state his support tonight from all of this top brass military personnel. And, the picture of Obama not saluting the flag and standing there reluctantly looking bored, tells us so much of the amount of disdain and hatred that he has for our country. Even Hilary is saluting the flag with reverence. Amazing!

  10. Bush III arrives. But watch out for the corporatism after the war and worsening Human Rights potential. That and the Mormon Xian fundo factor which the top brass should be very wary off. Obama on the other hand has spend too much time among those of a faith not exactly in love with USA’s liberalism.

  11. Perhaps to assuage the USA and world’s secular voters, how about Obama making an example of an ambivalent fundo state like Malaysia and putting out the Muslim based Apartheid in law and constitution they have there?

  12. I just want to throw out the fact that a group of retired Generals / Admirals agreeing to support and advise any American President who calls on them is NOT the same as a group endorsement of a specific candidate for President, no matter how much the Romney campaign wants to spin it that way. True, one or two have spoken favorably of Governor Romney, but most are strictly unpartisan.

  13. This is unprecendented in the US. This means the US Military is gravely concerned about the direction of the US.

    You only see endorsements such as this in third world countries and in my experience is a veiled threat of a coup d’ etat. I don’t think this is the case in the US but for a professional armed forces like what the US has, this means these generals have gotten feedback from the current serving officers and they are expressing their concern through these retired officers.

    This is absolutely unprecedented and just means it is absolutely imperative that Romney is elected. What I see this to mean if Obama wins is that the next division that Obama will foster will be to divide the military.

    That seems to be the motto of Obama – divide and conquer just to get elected.
