  •  how about addressing the fact (2+ / 0-)

    that Romney only came close to Obama in the debates on these issues is because he ran hard left.

    stop playing.  we aren't stupid.  your comments should at least be honest.

      Who did not expect that to happen?  

      During the primaries, they go to the right to satisfy their base.  During the general they swing to the left to try to get the Independent votes.  

      My comment was not dishonest, I just had no idea wtf you were talking about since your comment had absolutely nothing to do with mine.  Now can we get back to the point? Do you have a coherent response to the actual comment or not?

        But the idea of a trillion dollars in cuts through sequestration and budget cuts to the military would change that.

        romney again:

        The Navy said they needed 313 ships to carry out their mission. We're now down to 285. We're headed down to the — to the low 200s if we go through with sequestration. That's unacceptable to me.
        First of all, the sequester is not something that I proposed. It's something that Congress has proposed. It will not happen.
        obama is expressing his belief that a deal will be reached.

        maybe you are referring to this, instead, since that's where he actually specified defense:

        The budget that we're talking about is not reducing our military spending. It's maintaining it.
        he was talking about how not increasing it by another $2 million (romney's proposal) isn't reducing it.  that he is all about making the military better, not necessarily the most equipped:
        And so when I sit down with the secretary of the Navy and the Joint Chiefs of Staff, we determine how are we going to be best able to meet all of our defense needs in a way that also keeps faith with our troops, that also makes sure that our veterans have the kind of support that they need when they come home. And that is not reflected in the kind of budget that you're putting forward, because it just don't work.
        this administration has expanded the hell out of veterans programs.
