A 'military vote' that doesn't really exist

May 29, 2012 Myth 1: President Obama will win the military vote because Osama bin Laden was killed under his command. Myth 2: Mitt Romney will win the military vote because he wants to build up the armed forces to be "so strong no one would ever think to challenge [them]." Truth: There...

In Wisconsin, Romney likely to join battle against public employee unions
