Yeah he will get his four more years. At what costs, thats another question to be answered. Its already building; what you gonna do when all your little dreams pop because the infrastructure you believe you have seized control of ether fail, or leave. You cannot ignore reality. The bubble that is being created by Big Government will pop both in the economy and in society. Enjoy.

Dude, if they'd cut the rest of the budget by 50%, then I'd be just fine with 50% from the military.....

.....but we both know they won't do that.

Also cutting defence by 50% will not cut The Deficit by half. Maybe 5%, but I would have to look closer at the stats.

I don't have a problem cutting offensive force budgets.

But cutting of the military budget must be done in conjunction with a common sense plan that take the current threats into effect.

Don't forget the cuts that need to happen in the rest of the Federal budget

50% would be required there also..

It's okay, PMA! Obama has "class, leadership and intelligence" because he's having dinner after winning!!

You've established the new bar for presidential excellence. Forget about the budget! Forget about everything! And forget about the fact that your own Secretary of Defense--appointed by the hero having dinner after winning--said 50% cuts would be a catastrophe!

Forget it all, PMA! He's having dinner after winning! He's so bold! He's so courageous! He's so heroic!

Dead on correct, James. And that's why I like Ann's idea of making sure Obama has to eat it. Let him have his way, since any opposition we put up only brings us the blame for all of it.

James - You want 'small' government, right?. Cut the military's huge offensive budget by 50%, not 90% as some would suggest. And that reasonable cut alone will reduce the deficit by half.
We need a real DEFENSE budget not this runaway offensive budget.

One bright spot of Barack Obama's re-election was knowing that unemployment rates were about to soar for the precise groups that voted for him -- young people, unskilled workers and single women with degrees in gender studies. But now the Democrats are sullying my silver lining by forcing Republicans to block an utterly pointless tax-raising scheme in order to blame the coming economic Armageddon on them.

Democrats are proposing to reinstate the Bush tax cuts for everyone ... except "the rich." (Why do only tax cuts come with an expiration date? Why not tax increases? Why not...
