zero is dangerously traitorous.

No military
No NASA
No economy

SecDef Hagel just opened his remarks with thanks to an underling named Hale for creating this budget and wishing him a happy and well deserved retirement which Hale is beginning forthwith.

Translation: the buck stops with a Pentagon retiree.

John Bolton and Ollie North are slamming this budget on Fox right now.

“an end to large-scale foreign wars”

Who knew that budget cuts could end these types of wars?

Or perhaps they mean our ability to fight large-scale foreign wars will end.

“Obama officials say that the smaller fighting force reflects budget realities”

That’s political B.S. because the “budget realities” are from his chosen increases in the government entitlement state.

Second, the DOD needs to moderate any impact on the pay and benefits for soldiers by first drastically cutting the bloated DOD bureaucracy in Washington D.C.

Shut down the A10? Pure stupidity. That is one helluva fighting platform for front line support.

Cut the fighting forces and leave the bureaucrats? That is not surprising, coming from this criminal enterprise administration.

Zero is working feverishly to complete his ‘fundamental change’ plans prior to ending his term...if he ends it.

Just sayin’

I thought less than 16% of the Army were combat soldiers? Are these cuts that targeted?

Bureaucrats make the cuts. They’re not gonna cut their own jobs or their friends jobs. Much easier to cut people you don’t know. Recency, familiarity bias in action

This is the idea; reward bo’s parasites, and penalize our working warriors. Bo and his criminal allies know that the military workers are not his friends. They love America and hate Kenyan faggots. go figure.

Direct the cut at the high rank officers and civilians who sit in the Pentagon.

Those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it. This is a repeat of ‘how many times in the past’? And, how we have paid for this stupidity, every time.

War fighters, not bureaucrats bear the brunt of cuts

Then the next war we fight, we send a division of Pentagon bureaucrats to fight it.

That should put the fear of G_d in any enemy.

This might come back and bite dear leader in the @$$, since all of those men and women entering the workforce will make unemployment go up.

Israel should put a Bid in for those A 10s.
A lot of displaced soldiers and Marines will be hitting the job market at a bad time. There will be no Unemployment benefits for them. They wont be counted with the Millions of other people looking for a job.
Thanks Obama. You just created a new Voter Bloc for conservatives.
