...but, but it’s not true! Of course the Treasury will do what the Narcissist says and maybe won’t pay them, but the lack of pay really has nothing to do with what Congress is doing now. 0 isn’t supposed to have a say-so.

(and, yes, I know y’all know that, but I had to say it anyway)

A principled general would resign on the spot when given this order.

Mullen is a disgrace to the uniform, and should have told the soldier that he will do everything in his power to pay his men.

If Obama stops sending checks to the troops, he may as well resign, because even the Dems will try to save their own asses and tell the truth about who exactly is using the troops’ pay as a political weapon.

Don’t know what percentage of troops get paid twice a month, we get paid once.

Shameful, Shameful. Somebody on the Armed Forced Committee needs to call Mulligan and ask if the idea was his or Obama’s

Utterly shameful.

Effing A Right.

Joysus. What an A$$hat.

He wouldn’t even have to resign. If he just laughed in O-A$$holes face and said ‘you do it’, he would have the support of the nation and would never face firing.

Good Lord.

Well, most of Obama’s welfare voters have access to guns, and they are overseas.

Notice how Barry isn't mentioning welfare checks not being issued to the dumb and the lazy.

Do you know how much money is in the US Treasury? Nobody does. Senator Hatch has requested this information numerous time and they won’t tell him. Wonder why?

I'd contact my congressman about this, except my congressman is/was/ismaybe David Wu, who is quite literally insane.

When Mullen gets back on US soil, I'd like to see the GOP members of the Armed Services Committee bring him in and ask if he supports welfare recipients getting paid over his own troops fighting in theater.

The military made a mistake when they carried Obama’s water against the guy who wanted to burn a Koran.

Now Obama takes pleasure in using them like a little b*tch anytime he likes.

Another treasonous act by the Usurper...hopefully this will push the military to siding with the American Patriots against the foreign revolutionary anti-constitution Marxists when push comes to shove..

Damn right.

At least Gates had the smarts to bug out from the commie freak in the WH, and was soon replaced by another com symp Panetta.

Mullen will burn bright for his complicity in implementing faggots in the military.

DADT was working just fine.

No, I don’t know how much money is in the US Treasury, but “they” pay for everything else, and then some. Maybe they could “borrow” the money from some of those fat-cat banks WE bailed out.

I'm not a fan of Mullen but he was being honest here. He cannot guarantee where the cuts will be in the event of default. I would like to think that military pay would be prioritized and I'm sure the admiral agrees but its not up to him. I believe that I will get paid on the 15th and was willing to take the risk of urging my congressman not to cave. But like Mullen I don't know and can't guarantee that I will receive a check on the 15th.

What a leader. The ONLY way this subject should ever come up would be if he promised that before he let that happen no czar, cabinet member, member of congress or WH staff including him would lose all pay and benefits FIRST.

We knew this was coming because the DIMS always take hostages during “negotiations.”

At the very start of the debt debate, the House Pubbies should have pushed through a bill stating that the elderly and military would get their checks, no matter what, and dared the Senate and Zero to oppose it.

Yet another missed leadership opportunity by Boner.

If if wanted to demoralize troops, I’d threaten not to pay them. (The troops will be fed and sheltered, but they will now lie awake at night and wonder what will become of their families.) Then, I’d go home and get ready for a Birthday Party to end all parties, so that every corrupt, Marxist SOB in the country can be there to celebrate destoying the greatest democracy the world has ever know.

I probably won’t have many friends (or customers) left by the elections, but I told them last time that they were about to vote for a Marxist; this time, I’m going to get in their faces and ask them if they’re pleased with the result.

Mullen is a disgrace to the uniform. A product of a Hollywood insider family and a complete careerist and opportunist. The only thing on his mind is keeping on the good side of politically connected contractors. Watch when he retires to see if he doesn’t snag a very lucrative position with some outfit such as Carlyle Partners.

The generals who were intimidated by that three year old are even more contemptable. Scratch that: the generals are acting like the bureucrats that they truly are.
