If the Republicans allow RINO Chuck Hagel to be confirmed, the military will surely decline.

Even New York Times columnist David Brooks understands what Obama is doing with the Chuck Hagel appointment.

As the federal government becomes a health care state, there will have to be a generation of defense cuts that overwhelm anything in recent history. Keep in mind how brutal the budget pressure is going to be. According to the Government Accountability Office, if we act on entitlements today, we will still have to cut federal spending by 32 percent and raise taxes by 46 percent over the next 75 years to meet current obligations. If we postpone action for another decade, then we have to cut all non-interest federal spending by 37 percent and raise all taxes by 54 percent.

As this sort of crunch gradually tightens, Medicare will be the last to go. Spending on things like Head Start, scientific research and defense will go quicker. These spending cuts will transform America’s stature in the world, making us look a lot more like Europe today. This is why Adm. Mike Mullen called the national debt the country’s biggest security threat.

Chuck Hagel has been nominated to supervise the beginning of this generation-long process of defense cutbacks. If a Democratic president is going to slash defense, he probably wants a Republican at the Pentagon to give him political cover, and he probably wants a decorated war hero to boot.

Comments Comments Off on The Three Stooges of the Obama Administration Via Michael Ramirez

Chris Muir’s Day By Day cartoon is down for a few days for upgrades, so I will bring you one of my other favorite cartoonists, Michael Ramirez.

Ramirez’s point is that shouldn’t the President be discussing more substantive issues with the state of the nation as it is?

But, remember Obama’s primary goal is to win re-election. Why talk policy if the media will allow you to do “fluff” interviews and coast to victory?

I am feeling that even should Obama win re-election, that he will be a “lame duck” the minute he is sworn into office. Now, can Mitt Romney step up his game in the next 43 days and hold Obama accountable?

Somehow, I doubt it.

Political cartoonist Michael Ramirez has it RIGHT.

Why would any American voter choose to re-elect President Obama over Mitt Romney?
