THEN KILL THAT BEHEMOTH MONEY-PRINTING BILL
and turn down that thermostat, Orchid Flower. But leave the Armed Forces alone.
When someone says “The Pentagon needs more Stealth Bombers,” this president seems to think they’re talking about Bill Ayers.
Let’s take a little stroll down Memory Lane together, shall we?
It seems like it was only a week or so ago when George W. Bush had “wrecked the military”. We were “stretched to the breaking point”. We didn’t “have enough boots on the ground”. Our Humvees lacked the armor they needed and troops were forced to buy their own bullet-proof vests.
Obama: “You know, I’ve heard from an Army captain who was the head of a rifle platoon supposed to have 39 men in a rifle platoon. Ended up being sent to Afghanistan with 24 because 15 of those soldiers had been sent to Iraq.
And as a consequence, they didn’t have enough ammunition, they didn’t have enough Humvees. They were actually capturing Taliban weapons, because it was easier to get Taliban weapons than it was for them to get properly equipped by our current commander in chief.”
Well, that was then and this is now.
The rest of the government is getting a trillion-dollar raise cause they did such a great job of driving the economy into the dirt.
But the military–who has triumphed in Iraq despite the weather, despite Iran, despite al Qaeda and despite the Democrats–is going to be cut by 11%? And that’s just for starters?
Just last week, Obama swore: “I will preserve, protect and defend the Constitution.”
