re: #628 albusteve

The O’s just announced a 10% cut for the defense budget, while the overall budget deficit has just risen by two trillion dollars. That may signal a Carteresque drawdown in our burdened military. This is not the time to lower our guard, but like Jimmy Carter, the O administration is betting against history.

Some lizards yesterday said that that was a load of crap; that Obama has actually proposed an 8% increase in defense spending and that Fox News, which first reported the 10% cut just got it WRONG. Sorry, no links to those comments and their links - but ya can find ‘em on LGF - for yesterday.
