No one is going to cut entitlements anytime soon. Its a fact of life. There is no tooth fairy either.
Speaking of the military, you misunderstand its purpose. Its main purpose now is social experimentation : gays, wimmin, illegals (coming in McCain/Grahamnesty amnesty) not any real purpose.
Hell, drones are cheap. They do all the real fighting now. They can survive some cuts, and the military can still be effectively used to destroy this country morally.
Our national will is being sapped because of: Entitlements
The "Super Committee" would not act because of: Entitlements
Our debt is exploding because of: Entitlements
The military was cut by $487 Billion (over ten years) starting in 2011. They are trying to absorb that cut (that was real dollar cuts, not baseline budgeting), on top of a Continuing Resolution that has sapped the DoD budget. Sequestration is the final knife that will cut 25% in Operations and Maintenance (at least) and has to be cut between March and September.
Obama had actually agreed to a chained CPI COLA reduction for Social Security back in December. It was Harry Reid that who was so angry he actually burned the proposal in his Senate fireplace (true story). The media reported that.
Obama just hinted at the Democrat retreat in Leesburg VA that they might be "angry at him" very soon, but they had to stick together.
I think an Entitlement reform compromise is closer than most people thing. I agree, it is going to be very, very, very difficult. But there is hope. If we don't do anything, we are going to become Greece (or worse) very soon. The problem is not the military budget - it is entitlements.
