Skip to comments.Armed Services chairman: Obama is anti-military
Posted on 09/12/2011 7:44:23 PM PDT by Nachum
The chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, in a harsh attack on the Obama administration Monday, accused the president of viewing American military power as a negative force in the world, and planning to gut defense spending through the congressional deficit-reduction committee. It is my suspicion that the White House and congressional Democrats designed the supercommittee process for one purpose: to force Republicans to choose between raising taxes or gutting defense, said California Rep. Howard P. Buck McKeon, the House Armed Services Committee chairman.

The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Duh Buck, took you three years to figure that out?
About f-in time!!!
Barry’s biggest morale destroyer was putting fairies in the military. I think the Kenyan wanted to bring the military down a few notches. Obama is a scumbag.
He surely isn't bright enough to have come up with it on his own.

Welcome to the party, Buck, that was immediately apparent to most Americans.
Neither Captain Obvious or Dr. Duh were available for comment due to tight scheduling demands.
I’m shocked. Shocked, I tell you.
No, they ALL know it...he’s the one who has said it out loud. Petraeus, for example, is just counting the months until the happiest day of his life which is Obama’s last day 2013, will he finally receive no orders from this a-hole.
Wow...is the military turning against the messiah? I’m not sure I’ve ever heard such a high rank blast the (so-called) Commander and Chief before.
We’ve never had a military coup in this country... yet.
It's in the demoRAT creed.
CALIPH in Chief
And as the old saying goes, if you don’ t know who the sucker at the table is it’s probably you. ... the goal in poker is to find the table where you have a lot of bad players so that the odds are stacked in your favor.”
The Congressional Republicans are so g-d darn slow witted they sat down at ‘The Big Poker Table’ with Senator Patty Murray (D-Wash.), and Congressman Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.)... and Republicans Rep. Howard P. Buck McKeon and Jon Kyl still ended up as the suckers at the table.
That is an abysmal level of incompetence!
We might need a Pinochet.
Obviously all true. But guess what, Buck? You own the House of Representatives. And you guys still let Barry do whatever the hell he wants.
Why don’t you draft some legislation slapping down the “Supercommittee?”
Why don’t you ask the Supreme Court to at least review the constitutionality of outsourcing your job? That would be the job you were elected to do, which is legislate with a full vote of the House, rather than duck your responsibilities by giving them over to an elite few on the Supercommittee.
While you’re at it, why don’t you and your majority in the House do something about the executive branch usurping your legislative powers by granting amnesty by fiat? The House is supposed to deal with immigration. Or is your plan to just keep ignoring that memo?
Why don’t you do something, instead of grandstanding about the obvious?
If they planned to gut it, why have they raised it 44% since 2006 to 5% of GDP compared to Rumsfeld’s 4% of GDP?
Given the forgeries, the multiple social security numbers, the refusal to promptly prove his natural born citizenship, and **now** failure to pass E-verify....I think our very highest military are anti-military.
Is overlooking having a usurper and fraud as Commander in Chief how that watch the backs of our brave, honorable, and dedicated military men and women? Is this the military code of honor taught in our military academies now?
Obamas just having a ball trying to eradicate America’s greatness. It’s the kind of radical inoctrination he learned throughout his life that drives him.
Thanks McKeon -- BTW, did you vote for the debt ceiling increase and 0dumb0's budget that Boehner & Cantor & McConnell were all pushing for only 6 weeks ago? And that included the infamous Super committee that you are now complaining about? How stupid could you & the rest of Repukes be, to have gone along on this travesty. Boehner & McConnell should be tarred & feathers and run out of Washington along with the other Repubs that voted for this travesty. Welcome to daylight McKeon!
And in other news, the Pope is Catholic, and bears do poop in the woods.
