They also put blame on Obama.
The GOP is bluffing against itself, and losing.
Mr. Obama is hardly blameless. Hes the commander in chief, yet in signing off on sequestration as a forcing mechanism, he embraced a political calculation that implied national defense was more of a Republican worry than a Democratic one. The Pentagon was already planning to trim a manageable $450 billion from its spending plans over the next decade. If sequestration happens, and continues over a decade, that figure would more than double. As a result, the United States could have to terminate major weapons programs and would be left with the smallest ground force since prior to Pearl Harbor, according to estimates by Defense Secretary Leon Panetta.
Check. Well there you go, folks!
It’s all the Republicans fault. Obama is blameless.
I think we should have defense cuts. We have a communist running the department of defense to the benefit of the Obama brotherhood. Nothing good is going to come of the department of defense so long as the communist in chief is in charge.
Starve the beast...
It’s not like we cut defense and get invaded tomorrow. There is a ton of fat.
Does anyone second the motion?
