  •  An alternative progressive view on R at Defense (4+ / 0-)

    When I talk to vets who were in the army during the Clinton years, they strongly dislike what "Clinton did to the army",  ie the impact of his defense cuts meant they went on fewer offensive actions.   When I talk to special operators in the military now, they strongly dislike what Obama has done in Iraq , and it is the same complaints as the Clinton vets.

    Compared the the orgy of no bid contracts and deficit spending during the Bush years, Obama is poised to make relatively huge cuts to defense spending.

    Now in this context, who better than a Republican to lead the implementation of Obama's policy of defense cuts?

    Bonus fact -- the USA guarantees the military safety of over 60 nations!
