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.

No, Chris, Senator John Kerry wants to bailout the Boston Globe and other newspapers to guarantee favorable left-wing coverage of events.

Does that sound self-perpetuating?

More dead trees for the benefit of the LEFT.

What will Al Gore say?

How much do you need……?
