Obama Unveils Defense Cuts While Iran Threatens War

Whose bright idea was it for the president of the United States to unveil his defense budget cuts the cusp of a crisis with Iran and in the Pentagon’s briefing room? — What were they thinking?

Perhaps they think it makes President Obama look like a tough commander in chief to announce he’s slashing the defense budget with the victims standing right behind him.

Perhaps they think it’s a smart political move that will appeal to his anti-war base, cutting defense while keeping entitlements whole.

    So, looks like Goofy Isolationist Gut The US Military GOP/Tea Party Nutso Ron Paul has got
    Der Leader Never Served in our US Military Commander in Chief Barack Hussein Obama totally convinced we need to once again gut the US Military to bone,just like after WW One,
    WW Two, Korea,Viet Nam and After 9-11-2011 and the twin Wars in Afghanistan & Iraq,
    and I hope you people remember how that has always worked out,don’t you? Just Say NO
    to Barack Hussein Obama,77 Year Old Crazy Ron Paul and RINO Mitt Romney in 2012!….
    Since Bain Capital Business Man RINO Willard Mittens Romney will sell or outsource the
    entire US Military to Communist China,Russian and North Korea for a few billion bucks!…
    We must Evict Obama out the White House in 2012 and Vote Every Incumbent Democrat or
    Republican or GOP/Tea Party Member of Congress that Backs Gutting the US Military OUT!

    • Martin Ridens

      Ron Paul’s plan calls for bringing military spending to 2006 levels. If you pull up a graph of US defense spending over the last 12 years it may not seem like such a gutting.

      • Martin Ridens

        But let’s not allow information to have any sway over our emotions.

        • pam

          I SURE DONT UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU SAID, LIKE FORGET EVERYTHING SAID AND GO ON, THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT ALL THE CONGRESS IS DOING. NO ONE IS STANDING UP AND SHOWING THEY HAVE SOME BALLS TO STOP THIS DICTATOR. WE HAVE GOT TO GET HIM OUT OF THERE OR NONE OF US IS GOING TO HAVE OUR GREAT AMERICA BACK. HE IS AN ILLIGAL MUSLUM FROM KENYA AND THEY ARE NOT ARRESTING HIM FOR FRAUD, ANYONE ELSE WOULD HAVE BEEN DEAD BY NOW. FOR GOD’S SAKE WAKE UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

            YOU KNOW WHAT THE BLACKS IN THIS COUNTRY COULD LESS ABOUT WHAT WHITE PEOPLE THINK
            THEY GOT THEIR MAN IN AND THEY KEEP HIM IN THEIR AT ALL COST EVEN IF THEY HAVE TO KILL WHITE PEOPLE.AND THAT IS THE TRUTH.

      • Bob Marshall

        Martian, you are correct. The defense budget has more than doubled since 2001. On Sept. 10. 2001 Donald Rumsfeld announce the Pentagon could not account for $ 2.3 trillion. Later the Pentagon Inspector general said that the military cannot account of 25 % of what it spends. This is the reason they ask for 25% more over proposed defense budget. It was also admitted there is much expenditures hidden from the public because they have no need to know.

        • http://None BenFox

          Its a dangereous world, 1.4 billiion people hate us and our system and this cut, shows we are ready to lay down and accept their religion over freedom, I would tell Chelese Clinton I’m only afraid of 2 things, Obama and yoo mamma.

          • pam

            I BELIEVE YOU BEN BUT I GET SO ANGRY WE DONT STOP HIM, THEY ARE ONLY A FEW. WE THE PEOPLE ARE THE ONES IN CHARGE, LETS MAKE IT RIGHT. GET HIM OUT OF THERE, AND CLINTON, SHE IS A TRAITOR TO. IF THIS WAS GOING TO HAPPEN TO THEM TO, DO YOU T HINK THEY WOULD BE TRYING TO CREATE THIS MESS? SAME WITH OBAMA CARE, I BET THEY ARE NOT INVOLVED WITH IT AND THEIR INSURANCE. I HATE IT, WE HAVE GOT TO STOP THEM. I KNOW THERE ARE A FEW GOOD ONES IN THE WHITE HOUSE BUT WE HAVE TO CLEAN OUT ALL THE SKUM. THE CZARS SHOULD ALL GET OUT,STOP PAYING THEM, ALL RETIRES OUT OF THE WHITE HOUSE SHOULD NEVER GET A RETIREMENT. THEY TOOK US ALL THEIR YRS AND IF THEY COULDNT SAVE OUT OF THAT, THEIR SICK.

      • maryanne

        of for God’s sake this isn’t 2006, do you read the papers, do you know about the “arab spring” that isn’t such a spring but a bunch of jihadist taking over the middle east. Do you understand oh pollyanna that if we are weak, we are dead. In a perfect world this world, but if you understand what we up against not only as a country but globally, you don’t cut defense. Understand, don’t cut defense to 2006 levels, we need to be strong and we need to be smart.

        • pam

          YOUR RIGHT MARYANN, THAT IS THE LAST PLACE YOU WOULD CUT. WE HAVE TO STAY THE STRONGEST EVER. I GET INFO IN THE MAIL WHERE OUR GUYS FIGHTING NEED THINGS THEY CANT GET FROM THE GOVERNMENT.
          THIS IS INSANE. THEIR ARE OVER THERE FIGHTING FOR US AND T HEY DONT HAVE ALL THE EQUIPMENT THEY NEED TO DO THE JOB. HOW STUPID IS THAT. ????
          GOD HAS GOT TO HELP US. WE ALL NEED TO DO A LOT OF PRAYING. HE WILL COME T HROUGH AND TAKE THIS BLACK TRATOR OUT OF THERE ALONG WITH REED AND ALL THOSE THAT THINK THEIR DOING SOMETHING. THEY DONT ACT LIKE THEY HAVE A CLUE ONLY TO DESTROY US.
          I CAN NOT BELIEVE WITH ALL THE INFORMATION THEY HAVE FOUND OUT ABOUT OBAMA THAT THEY HAVE NOT GOT HIM IN JAIL. THIS IS INSANE.

    • bellewise

      Geez Louise, this guy is moving so fast it is frightening, combine that with these appointments against the constitution, his saying he wants to hire ex military people in the government, his talk of “a civilian army, larger, better funded and better equipped, then our military” Are these ex military going to be highly paid federal employees, his new “civilian Army”. Add to this “civilian Army” all of the black muslims on his side all the gangs on his side will any of the rest of us have a chance after he declares himself dictator and stops all elections. I knew they would move fast this year out of fear, but this is even faster than I thought. I detest this man and all of his communist/socialist/liberal/democrat followers. I can tell you I hate feeling this way, but we must open our eyes and prepare to defend our own and our Country. NOW How much more time will we waste watching “American Idol” and the Kardasians’ or playing video games instead of learning about what is happening in our own Nation and becoming prepared for anything. This is getting very serious.

      • maryanne

        well said.

        • pam

          AMEN. THIS IS MY KIND OF A GUY.
          I’M ALSO VERY PROUD OF SHERIFF JOE FROM ARIZONA. HE IS A MAN!!!!AND WE NEED THOUSANDS LIKE HIM. HE IS GOING TO GET TO THE BOTTOM OF THE BIRTHCERTIFICATE. WE ALL KNOW OBAMA IS ILLIGAL BUT WITH SOMEONE THAT IS A GOOD GUY AND CAN HANDLE IT, HE IS GOING TO WAKE EVERYONE UP.

        • Bruce

          I couldn’t have said it better. Right on! The man is evil and purposely destoying this country. It is a wonder why someone hasn’t taken him out by now. It is hard to believe there are so many conspiritors backing him.

    • Another Ralph

      I am a Tea Party member. The Tea Party is Pro-Military. At the meetings I attend everyone is pro-military. I’m a Vietnam Disabled Vet. My Two Sons are both in the Air Force. My father was on the Arizona and transferred to the Pennsylvania two weeks before the December 7 attack to be with his brother. I would not belong to any group that is not Pro-Military. This propaganda that the Tea Party is anti-military or isolationist is meant to drive a wedge between conservatives.

    • Doris Carman

      O yeh, makes a lot of sense to cut down with Iran, N. korea, china and russia at odds with us.

  • oath keeper

    Hey Ralph
    You scared of something ? Oh no Iran might get a nuke, no proof (like Iraq)
    Let’s keep the never ending war going …. Maybe you should hang out in Afghanistan and be a target for people that don’t want us there? That’s what happens when you make excuses and lie to go to war, people tend to hate you. Russia has thousands of nukes yet we managed to stay out of war with them. Iran or ANY other country getting a nuke is as insignificant as a stick in a gun fight. If your so scared of Iran maybe you should be the first over the border, because I think our troops are sick of being killed for being the world police force. Bring them home and out of harms way and put a end to the corporate war machine.

    • CAllenDoudna

      Care to repeat that from the radioactive ashes of your hometown?

      • dannyboy

        I have worked with and around nuclear weapons all my life in the melitary and as a civilian. I know more about them and their detection than the vast majority of Americans. We are highly influenced by Hollywood and the media to have great fear of others having them. However, without a sophisticated delivery system anyone could have one and be of no imediate danger to anyone a hundred miles away. India, Pakistan, N. Korea, China, Russia, and several allies, including Israel, have them. Are we afraid of Pakistan? They are quite upset with us right now because of our illegal intrusions into their country. We need to set aside our emotions and assess why so many countries are angry with America. The answer is, if you meddle into the affairs of all your neighbors they will cease to be your friends. That is a truism on any level from the local neighborhood to the planetary neighborhood. Leaving others alone is not isolationism, it is simply being a good neighbor.

        • Another Ralph

          So Iran is a good neighbor?

        • Anthony San Diego

          Agreed, but that statement means nothing to a war monger. Yet I wonder how they’ll react if we do go to war and their sons, daughters, mothers, fathers, husbands, wives or cousins come home minus a pair of arms, legs or both? I wonder how they’ll react when a loved one comes home in a body bag? War isn’t a game, it’s a way for the Rothschilds, the Rockefellers and anyone who’s part of that crowd to increase their power and their fortune as we commoners spill our blood.

    • corky66

      Look, if those fools in Iran will strap explosives to themselves and go out and self destruct just to kill (and get a bunch of virgins) why then would they NOT send a few nukes to hit New York or Washington DC (the last one would be a good thing) Would you let your child play with fire? Well, that’s what these people are.. STUPID CHILDREN

      • bellewise

        AMEN – Corky

      • Sarge

        Maybe they are just Muslim extremists just like our beloved Ouma.

      • Anthony San Diego

        corky66,
        You know of course that Middle East nations do not have a delivery system and if they did we have the ability to shoot down a nuke.
        You do know that don’t you? Of course I realize that Hollywood has glamorized war, but the smell of death is absent from films, the screams of a wounded service man isn’t as blasé as the silver screen depicts. To be succinct, It must be nice to sit down at your keyboard, safe from the horrors, and bluster how brave you are.

    • bellewise

      oath keeper – that usually suggests ex military, are you? I agree with you in one respect, even if we were justified according to most countries with significant information, fighting to save a group of people who are happy in their ignorance and accepting of their backward religion is a worthless cause. They hate everyone including their own, one muslim sect has been fighting the other muslim sect for thousands of years. They claim to be a religion of love, but they hate everyone, each other, kurds, jews, christians and anyone else who thinks differently then they do. I don’t see many Protestants, Catholics, Baptists and Jews in this Country fighting with a gun and sword against each other over a difference in religious beliefs. You seem more anti American than what most Oath Keepers do.

      • CAllenDoudna

        There is a reason why the cities of the Middle East have walls around them–and it ain’t because they’re at peace.

      • pam

        I AGREE ABOUT THE MUSLUMS, THEY ARE NOT!!!!!! A RELIGIOUS GROUP, THEY ARE A POLITICAL GROUP. I HAVE A FRIEND HERE THAT HAS READ IT OVER GOOD AND THEIR T WO BOOKS THEY HAVE. WILL TELL EXCTLY HOW AND WHY THEY ARE HERE. THEY ARE REALLY A DANGEROUS GROUP AND I WISH THEY WOULD MOVE THEM OUT OF THE US. THEY ARE ALREAY TAKING OVER A CITY IN MICHIGAN. THAT IS HORRIBLE. LOOK AT ALL THE BLDS THEY ARE PUTTING UP. CANT STAND IT.

      • pam

        BELLWISE, I BELIEVE WHAT YOU SAY ABOUT THE MUSLUMS, THIS PAST WEEK THEY WERE TELLING ABOUT A FAMILY IN MICHIGAN OF THEM. THE FATHER KILLED THEM ALL FOR HIS HONOR!!!!!!!!!!! THE MOTHER AND HIM DEVORCED AND HIS DAUGHTER WAS GOING WITH ONE OF US SO FOR HIS HONOR,
        HE GOT RID OF ALL. THE DAUGHTER WAS BEAUTIFUL.
        HOW CAN THEY CALL ANY OF THAT LOVE????????????????

    • AliveStillKickin

      Keeping your oath to Obama?

    • don

      mr keeper- have you heard any russians straping bombs on an killing them selfs? we are dealing with a completly differnce breed here they want to KILL you -us if you can’t see that they WILL use .. the BOMB. then you sir are blind.

    • T-Texas

      Oath keeper .You don’t seem to remember that Saddam Hussien had weapons of mass destruction and used them against the Kurds an estimated 5000 were killed,He also tried to use them in his war with Iran but the winds were against him and not much success.He knew that he was getting close to being attacked and got the Wmds into Syria or got them buried in the desert.t It is not what Iran can do to us but what they will do Israel and other surrounding countries.And don’t think they wouldn’t attack us within a heart beat if they could.I look for them attack us in the straight of Hoormus with some kind of suicide attack.

    • http://googlechrome David

      It would be really neat if the leaders and their cabinets were the ones who go to war and fight each other. They would all be bowing to one another as Hussein obama does to the muslims.

  • Galderan

    If Iran gets a nuke, they have already said they will use it to annihilate Israel. If that is acceptable to you Oath Keeper, than I have nothing else to say to you. Muslims believe that they will go to paradise if they kill a Jew, so if they nuke israel, and then they are hit and wiped out, that is OK with them as they will be in paradise with all their virgins. Iran developing a nuclear weapon is just as or more dangerous than handing a nuke to Al Qaeda. It WILL be used. You cannot compare Iran to Russia or any other sane country in the world.

  • CAllenDoudna

    Yo everybody! We’re going to cut the Defense Budget but keep ourselves just as well-defended. How are we going to do that? Well each squad will be re-designated a platoon. Each platoon will be re-designated a company. Each company will be re-designated a battalion. And each battalion will be re-designated a division. By thus cutting only the smallest unit–the squad–we retain all our divisions and maintain our strength.

    • bellewise

      You come be this wisdom, HOW?

      • CAllenDoudna

        In case you didn’t get it, it’s a joke illustrating the sort of games Liberals play trying to make it look like their La-La Land pipe dreams will work.

        But Hitler did in fact delude himself with something like this. On the eve of World War II a German division had 12,000 men. Hitler reasoned 10,000 men could do the job and this allowed him to form 20% more divisions. Then he reduced it to 8,000. Then 6,000, and I forget if he finished the war with 4,000 men in a division or if he went down to 2,000. Anyway he had all these divisions he could move around on a map–but he couldn’t understand why they weren’t stomping the Allies. There were 25,000 men in an American division.

  • Laura

    I am not surprised with anything when it come to this man and his minions.

  • Sue

    Iran isn’t threatening, we are. What would life be like without our politicians claiming we need to annihilate some country or another because they hate us for our “freedoms”. We gain nothing and lose much. We don’t win wars, we sacrifice everything because someone said be afraid. DC is the threat. Throw them all out.

    • CAllenDoudna

      Which American politicians called for the annihilation of which countries? By the way, what did we do that brought on 9-11? And what have we done to any of them to merit the title “the Great Satan”?

      • Sue

        You are either deliberately being naive or you simply don’t know history. As for 9/11, whom are you blaming? Iraq? We invaded them right afterward.
        What did we gain after 9/11? A police state? Unending detention?

        • Bob Marshall

          Sue, you have to remember that many people don’t bother to research. If any country had done to the US what the US has done to the people of Iran we would have attacked them for any of these events committed in the following.. No need to know what the CIA and other intelligence agencies along with western powers did to the Iranian people in 1953 to return the Iranian oil field back over to Britian or what the US did in the Iraq-Iran war supplying Saddam with weapons of mass destruction to be used against the Iranian people and the Revolutionary Guard or what the CIA, has been doing in Iran the last two years. Israel is more than capable of taking care of Israel. The fourth most powerful military and nuclear power in the world. In 2009, 342 US troops committed suicide. In 2010, 462 US troops were killed in Iraq but 468 committed suicide . Why? To die for the right to be free and to protect our homeland is one thing, but to die for Israel and corporate America is another. 90% of the people that have died in the Iraq and war in Afghanistan have been men, women and children. not to mention the number who were displaced and who lost their homes and posessions. America still has too many citizens that have been dumbed down by the corporate controlled news media for years and years.

          • Sue

            Bless you, Mr. Marshall! I completely agree. Too many don’t know Iran used to be an ally.

        • pam

          i heard the 9/11 was helped with some of ours. really scarey. i thought about it and it could have been done. the planes hit the top of the building right??? the basement have big steal gurders, they could not have burned hot enough to melt and let the building down. they were interviewing people that heard explosions after the planes hit and they know they were blown with explosives. now that is sick. the heat may have done all of the top, not the steal gurders. they said cia had something to do with it. i dont want to believe that.

    • Dan

      WHAT the HECK are you spoutting off????????? GET A CLUE!!

    • bellewise

      DEAR SUE: Where in the World is there a War that doesn’t involve Muslims? If we had acted decisively and immediately to their prior attacks on us 9-11 would never have happened. Sticking our tails between our legs and ignoring them only emboldens them. Thus the massive invasion of this Country by Muslim visitors who stay forever. Who have firmly planted themselves in varies regions around our country. 500k in Virginia, 500k in Michigan, 500k in Tennesse, 500k in Texas, California, etc etc. 35 Plus Muslim war games camps across the Country. Dear you will fight them here or over there. Because we ignored their bully attacks on us. They hate everyone and we are at the top of their list, next to the Jews and other Muslim sects.

      • Sue

        Dear bellewise, I am sure you want the best for our country and are a sincere person. Bully tactics? Why did we invade Iraq when they had nothing to do with 9/11? Why are we threatening Iran when they have followed the rules of the NPT unlike Israel? Why do we stand idly by when Israel attacks their neighbors all the while claiming they are the victims? Please take a look at http://www.ifamericansknew.org/
        If your family was constantly being provoked, would you not get angry too?
        All I ask is for you to take the time to look at both sides not one view of it. I believe you might change your opinion. If not, it couldn’t hurt anything. Certainly the more you read the more you’ll know.

        • maryanne

          Hey Sue: don’t believe everything from if americans knew.If you have ever been to Israel you would have a better understanding of this tolerant country. Do you understand that a country surround by hostile people needs to protect itself. Do you know that israel is constantly bombarded with bombs, do you know that they needed to put up a wall to stop the suicide bombings. Did you know that if a person/terrorist is injured on israeli soil that they bring them to a hospital. Did you know that when they let out over 1,000 terrorists for for 1 jewish prisoner, that one of the gals after she tried to blow up israel and was treated in their hospital and saved, then when she left, she vowed to come back and strike again. Did you know that the palestinians sing how to kill jews lullabies to their children. Sorry Sue, I am jewish, I have visited Israel, we are held to a higher standard, namely G_d, we do not inflict pain and suffering on children, Israel will let the Palestinians know where they are going to bomb prior to so the children can be removed. Unlike the palestinian men who hide behind their women and children. It pains me to see websites like this. Unfortunately, Israel and the rest of the Jewish community will never suffer another holocaust without “fighting for their lives.” I am sure you would agree with that.

    • maryanne

      go negotiate with Iran and see how well that works out for you, remember the 3 idiots that we spent $1 million on to get back and then they came back and badmouthed our country, I would have sent them back. Hope you aren’t gay, because if you are, bye-bye, hope you aren’t christian or jewish, bye-bye, if you aren’t muslim or at least a good practicing muslim bye-bye and if you are a woman, put on your burka, shut your mouth, because you can’t drive, you will be sexually mutilated, so will your daughter, and your daughter can be married at any age, as long as it is consummated by 9. so there are you options, you like Iran and the above freedoms, move there and see how that works out for you. FREEDOM, you never lived without it. Ask any immigrant from the middleeast who moved here for it. Take out nonni darweesh’s books, y ou may understand after that.

  • RHSchumann

    What Obama makes imminenet sense. After all, should we invade Iran with our Army and Marines?
    Of course it is easy for those who have no personal stake in it to demand that our brave volunteer Army be sent into another hopeless and unnecessary war. Anybody who rattles with a saber should volunteer.

    • CAllenDoudna

      Well I served.

    • Leslie85223

      Oh, and Obama now has the “right” to form his own personal military of one million that will take orders only from him . . . This “right” was somehow thrown into the Health Care package . . .

    • maryanne

      obviously you didn’t have a personal stake in it, so ask one of our troops how they felt?
      you will get a different answer.

  • BobG_of_Iowa

    Obama ain’t stupid! He’s cutting the military to Iran the edge. Right now the US military have enough troops to fight two wars and maintain a presence in Korea, Sergia, Germany and several others countries. After his proposals, we’ll be lucky if we can protect ourselves here at home. Congress needs to take action against this liberal/communist/socialist/marxist usurper of the Constitution and impeach him!

  • cheryl

    Obama is just asking Iran to attack us. He cuts defense in half which I’m sure Iran is very happy about. I’ll bet obama is counting on a war with Iran just before the election so he can get re-elected. If this happens I hope Iran sends the first missle right thru the oval office.

  • Eli Jones

    Patriots, what Obama is doing is this! Obama is weakning our US Military while he builds his personal army with our money. Obama is a Fascist Dictator planning a hostile takeover of America. Obamacare is funding “Obama’s Personal Civilian Army” called the “Ready Reserve Corps” It is authorized in section 5210 on page 1312 in “The Affordable Healthcare Act” . This is happening NOW! Remember, during his campaign, Obama called for his personal Million Man civilian army to be loyal only to him. Obama also stated that his personal civilian army should be more powerful than our US Military. Watch This Short Video And Be Informed Of What The Nazi In The White House Has Planned For You! Look at the Thugs pledging their loyalty to Obama, they are shown in the video. Spread The Word to our fellow Patriots! This is very important!!

  • bellewise

    Cheryl: If they attack before the election, there will be no election and Barack Hussein Obama will become our last elected President, he will declare himself re appointed to a Dictatorship. He is poking and poking and poking, not only our enemies but the American people hoping that we will do something that will allow him to postpone elections indefinitely or establish martial law. The question is, is his army large enough or devoted enough to get rid of the rest of us as Hitler’s loyalists did. He need only kill a few publicly to scare the rest of us and make us hide in hole like the majority of the Germans did. He has the club carrying Black Muslims on his side as well as many of the prisoners being released and maybe some of those laid off soldiers and those Mexican gang members who are joining our military in record numbers to learn how to fight. He was counting on another four years, that may not happen so they must all move more quickly. Keep your eyes open everyone.

    • Leslie85223

      Unfortunately not enough people understand this Socialist agenda that was well planned out MANY years ago. It very well could happen and Obama doesn’t seem the least bit worried about not being president in 2012 . . . Of all the Unconstitutional moves made by Obama, none have been contested or overturned. I’m not surprised but I am very disappointed in those who could have put an end to Obama’s folly.

  • ARMYOF69

    ” Strike while the iron is hot” is not something our leaders believe in.
    Bush senior took months telegraphing what he is going to do to Saddam Hussein, and this current idiot in the White House does not have the balls to shut down every facility that may be housing a future nuclear weapon in Iran. We shall ” have to wait for a nuclear weapon to go off here in the USA, to see what’s in it”, to quote PISSLOSI.

  • Jim Agans

    This may be the winner of the most idiotic statement the media can make, and it is clearly targeted at those people that do not have even the most basic information about the US and what we spend a year on defense. I am sure it has changed to some degree from two years ago, but when the politititians in DC started their latest scare tactics. We (The US) was spending 684 Billion Dollars on Defense for 2009-2010 That would be $ 684,000,000,000.00 That is about 220 dollars for every man women and child in the US per year.

    Now if anyone with even a moducum of intelligence thinks that cutting 10 billion over 10 years from what we spend will “GUT” the military, as stated by the IDIOT Leon Panetta, and the other idiots that blab their ignorance on this and other forums you need to either stop smoking what you are smoking, or start smoking a lot more.

    I am beginning to think that we start these stupid wars all over the world just to justify the money we rip off from the american people.

    Now before you call me a commie, I fought in the Vietnam war for this country, A war trumped up by Johnson, supposedly in an attempt to control communism, a political system that has died on the vine in every country where it has been tried,and will die wherever it is tried because it flies in the face of human nature. Johnson, the guy who entered the whitehouse without a dime and left with about 15 million in the bank. Gee, where do you suppose that came from????????

    Iran is a pimple on an elephants rear end, has antique military hardware, and poses about as much of a threat to the US as an ant does to the aforementioned Pachyderm.

    • Old Faithful Geyser

      If you would take the time to look at a map of that region, I think you’ll understand WHY President Bush had troops in both Iraq & Afghanistan.
      Iran is position right in between the two and has been a festering sore in the region since the fall of the Shah in the 70’s. Remember the hostages that Carter tried to get released? the reason he couldn’t get them released was he wasn’t repected by anyone in the world. When President Reagan took office, they were immediately released.
      Now Iran has a true DING-BAT in charge and we have someone that is of equal STUPIDITY leading our country. This is truly NOT THE TIME TO CUT FUNDING nor is it time to leave Iraq or Afghanstan, because we can contain that regional MAD MAN while we are there.
      If he shuts down the Straits of Hormuz, the price of oil will be the elimination of economies around the world. Countries that are on the brink of failure will collapse and our economy wil be in a shambles that will take decades to recover from.
      Also, Iran is trying to set up missle sites in Venezuela that would put this country in easy access of ICBM type missles that could possibly contain Nuclear warheads. (Think Cuban Missle Crisis all over again, but dealing with Two Maniacs)
      Our LUNATIC LEADER will not let us explore or drill our own oil reserves here in our hemisphere, nor mine our own coal or produce our own electicity with fossil fuels or nuclear fuels, BUT will give Brazil BILLIONS to drill in the GULF of Mexico.
      There is something fundamentally WRONG with that kind of thinking, Don’t you agree?

    This President is nuts. He refuses to cut spending for the Cowboy Poetry Contest and yet guts the defense budget — an area where the government SHOULD rightfully spend. Hope the defense department can withstand these cuts — do away with some of the paperwork and not have to cut the salaries and numbers of the troops. Obama is a total jerk.

  • Mike H

    It is mandatory that in his mind “Dictator Obama” weaken this country militarily to a 3rd world level so the Islamic and Communist enemies can dominate where we lack military influence.
    All part of his plans to destroy our country which he hates. A salute to his dead Islamic-Marxist father and those who helped his rise to power.

    Get rid of all the waste in this country, (or at least close to it) stop giving money away to countries that hate us, get rid of special interest groups, cut down just on govt waste, make govt smaller, we would have enough money to keep a strong military and improve things here at home. Start tapping the resourses here at home that create jobs, etc etc etc
    The world is not going to get any safer, look whats going on all over the world. look at europe, asia as example. I have no trust in osama, never have, He along with both sides of the congress are taking this country down the wrong road. We need to pay better attention to is coming into this country. etc etc

    Only a fool pulls his pants down, bends over, and then wonders why he got poked. We shouldn’t be the world police, but this is a very dangerous world and we need to be prepared for whatever we can “within reason”.

    And the sad part of all ovomit is doing is the fact that NONE of those elected to SERVE THE CITIZENS are willing to do anything about that mentally disturbed muslim socialist in the White House. However, if people would start writing letters and send them to their congress and senate members and let them know they WILL NOT be elected unless they take positive action and investigate and start impeachment proceedings now before he can do any further damage to our country, our Constitution, and our freedoms. I sent my member of congress and senator this information already.

    I wonder what life would be if FDR had lived. He was in office for 16 yrs and died in office had he not died what would our Country be like today? And he’s one of obama’s favorite.

  • Don Poleto

    A pre-emptied strike will a great chance at this time…………all the reasons are there. BESIDES…..How can A CIVILIAN give orders to the Military,,,,,,,,when this person (?) has never served OUR country,,,,,,and is an ILLEGAL,,,,,,,,,,A Commander -In-Chief MUST be a person who HAS SERVED in the Military. Let the Joint Chiefs make military decisions.
    Lastly…If the USA is a REPUBLIC,,,,why do We have a DICTATOR in Office????

  • msbets

    THIS LITTLE FREAK IS JUST BEGINNING TO WIND THINGS UP AND IF IT’S ELECTED AGAIN, MARK MY WORD IT WILL BE THE LAST FREE ELECTIONS IN AMERICA, IF HE GETS FOUR MORE, WE ARE SCREWED, THIS PIG WILL CASTRATE THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AND THROW US TO THE MUSLIM PIGS!!!!

  • Gloria Wedemeyer

    Every time I hear of something Obama is doing, I cringe. But I think this tops all of it. Men are giving up their life for this country. Obama will not tackle the entitlement problem but save some money on our defense. He would rather give the money to unions, do-nothing freeloaders etc. I think our military men should be No. 1 on the list of those needing the money.
    I grew up during World War II and was just barely more than a baby, so I didn’t realize the danger then. But in the 70 years since, I feel our country is more at risk from terrorists, especially since 9/ll happened here on our own soil. This man and I will not call him my president as I feel his main objective is to destroy our way of living and freedom, needs to go.

    Biggest Threat to US Comes From Within Our Own Government!
    A Tyrannical Dictatorship! Dictatorships with the military might to yield on US soil with the reversed Posse Comitatus Act! And now with the NDAA passed into law the powers that be can have their way by hook or crook, as well as use the mere suggestion that anyone can be deemed “enemy combatant” because of a person’s belief and/or opinion that can be considered rebellious if it’s not the same as the Tyrannical Dictatorship’s view.
    This Violation should Never Happen Again! Impeachable! http://www.exposeobama.com/2012/01/04/video-new-hampshire-legislators-fight-obamas-eligibility-fraud/
    Now, you can help make the corrections to Our Republic, Help Save Our Constitution!
    When the people fear the government, that’s Tyranny!
    When the government fears the people, that’s Liberty!
    All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing!
    Now Is the Time for All Good Men and Women to come to the aid of Our Country!
    Make the Difference and Take a Stand with other Good Men and Women.

    How about cutting 58,401 jobs at the TSA, that would be a damn good start at reducing this nations security jobs, and a much better place than reducing the military numbers.
    If you want security at the airports, have the military stand guard.
    I can remember a time when we could fly anywhere we wanted without being subjected to being felt up, undressed, questioned like crimnals, gropped, and stripped of our rights as citizens. A time when our military personel were respected for protecting our country and this country was THE BEST HOPE for FREEDOM in the world. We were respected by our friends and allies AND our enemies, because they knew we had the pride and determination to defend our friends and ourselves.
    Now we have an IMPOSTER that has absolutely, 0 (zero) experience in running anything, except his mouth, trying to get re-elected, because he likes to fly all over the world and around this country and live the “HIGH LIFE” like some kid of sultan or king, destroying everything that took over 250 years to establish.
    He is a FRAUD, IMPOSTER and worst of all, a MARXIST MUSLIM. If thats not reason enough to eliminate him, then there is something very wrong with the citizens of this Nation.

  • d brady

    We have how much crap that has to be done through military sources and we have that much less to use for it. Who the hell does he expect ot actually give cash money to those people that are actually doing all the work ?? He’s long since cut that funding down to nothing with the other cuts he made to our budget. Maybe that is the point he let china and saudi buy our military why let them have a chance to actually have a job too? The man in the white house is now and has been a traitor He needs to be replaced with someone that actually has a purpose in making the country run smoothly not this. Never before has a president allowed our weapons to bought on this scale by frenemies. Its a disaster waiting to happen
