The obama plan
Spend trillions and trillions on leftist schemes and unions.

Cut our national defense
Turn NASA into a Muslim rear-kissing agency
Cut our missle defense shield
Cancel important research and development of advanced weapon systems.

Obama truly is the first post American president

C'mon folks. There's not some waste in the defense budget???

All kinds of organizations are trimming bureaucracy and learning to operate lean and mean. Who better than the military to show the way? If the officers' ranks are bloated, it's time for downsizing.

BTW, the only person I heard on the news all day about this was Defense Secretary Gates, the guy George W Bush gave this job to. Would a fine Republican like Mr Gates be party to godless commies re-imagining the defense budget?

I doubt it...

That's right, lay off hundreds of thousands of American citizens.

The money they save will go to support ILLEGAL MEXICANS.

The government spends over 10 BILLION dollars a year on ILLEGAL MEXICANS.

This is rewarding the ILLEGAL MEXICANS for murdering over 2500 American citizens every year.

Remember, the ILLEGAL MEXICAN BABIES of today, will be tomorrow's murderers of American citizens.

Yep. Biliary did the same thing; at the end of his presidency, he gutted the military. The only difference between Clinton and Obama is that Obama has to act now, since he will not be serving a second term.

Wow .. you almost sound like a right winger ... If you were talking about OTHER big government bureaucracies.

I do agree waste can be found in anything of this size but I find it interesting the left never talks about cuts in certain pet areas either.

There is waste in every program.

We need a strong military, but cuts have got to be made.

Stop sending aid to foreign countries, concentrate OUR tax money HERE in the USA.

Perhaps, if we kept the trillion dollars to Israel, the $800 million to Palestine,
the $400 million to Mexico,
the $400 million to Hait,
the $20 Billion in Millenial Goals money,

and all other 'aid' we give to other countries, let alone the Climate Scam, which will decimate this country.

Get out and vote in November. We need to REbalance our country.

It is NOT good to have a one party domination like the democRATS have:

House-Pelosi
Senate-Reid
Executive Branch-Obama
Judicial nominees-Obama
Vote on Judicial nominees-Democrats

That is UNbalanced! Vote out ALL democrats. Do it locally, cause your locally elected democrats give Nancy Pelosi the numbers to continue as Speaker.

And as Speaker, Pelosi controls the bills, programs, policies are voted on.

RE-balance= NO to ALL democrats

and remember Senators serve 6 years-NO to democrat senators.

We don't need 6 years of Clintonistas

The Guiding Light of Freedom will be extinguished when this closes. Our future leaders will have a lack of training, which will allow those who despise us to trample us. It is all a grand scheme to systematically destroy America one brick at a time.

How do you like that change now?

Have you bothered to check how much defense spending was cut when Gerald Ford was Commander-in-Chief?
