If Republicans love the military so much, why don't they have more than one veteran running for president?

Don't answer with an attack on Liberals....This question is about the GOP, so your answer needs to be about Republicans only.

    The question doesn't make any sense...A) Republicans don't "love the military"--we just know we have to have a strong and effective one, which seems to escape liberals; B) Even if we did love the military, it is libs who are always looking for civilian oversight of the military--you should be thrilled.
