Those who have been paying attention know that President Obama has been quietly slashing the military to stay consistent with his message that America should play a smaller role in the world.
As if that wasn’t bad enough, over the weekend we learned that he lied to some of his top advisers in the process.
From The Daily Caller:
Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates said Friday in an interview on Fox News that President Barack Obama “double-crossed” him.
Obama pledged to Gates there would be no major changes to the Pentagon budget, Gates explained. That promise, however, was quickly broken. Obama instructed Gates to slash billions of dollars even though Gates had already cut the defense budget down by a significant amount, The Hill reports.
It’s surprising that this revelation didn’t get more media play over the weekend.
Clearly, we aren’t dealing with a president that takes the military seriously.
Since when do Democrats ever worry about spending? When you see liberals cutting spending on something you know they must really despise it.
