Of all the articles I've read about the defense spending announcements, this is the first guy to pull back the covers to see what is really going on. All this outrage from the left and right is ridiculous. The left wants to keep those wasteful contracts in their states and the right is trying to make everyone believe we are now vulnerable to attacks. Those politicians on the Hill know none of the proposed changes will degrade the nations defensive readiness. We have enough bombs to destroy the world several times over so what's a few more going to do? What those politicians are really doing is putting on a show for the lobbyist and defense contractors whose pocket they dwell and to their constituents to say they tried their best to oppose the presidents agenda... The nation is buying into the biggest floor show in history. Hook, line and sinker... http://www.latimes.com/news/opinion/editorials/la-ed-defense7-2009apr07,0,6842364.story Why won't this nation see the light, I don't agree with everything Obama does but in this case he is making good decisions toward cutting wasteful spending and the nation just don't want to admit it. Am I the only one who sees the truth?
