Obama has consistently handed out cash to the unions and his cronies, but he’s planning on stripping the military to its bare bones. This is not the same as trimming the fat and increasing efficiency. Instead, he envisions the American military in say, circa 1917 or 1941. Yes, we won both those wars, but at a terrible cost. Had we been stronger and more pro-active, each might have ended more quickly and with less bloodshed.
Because my brain works in mysterious ways, I have visions of Obama saying that all the kids playing Call of Duty are pretty much pre-trained, making much of boot camp unnecessary. That’s so not true.
Doesn’t Obama’s oration remind you of that old commercial “I’m not a doctor, but I play one on TV.” This SOTU has a soundtrack: “I’m not an executive, but I play one on TV. I’m not a statesman, but I play one on TV. I’m not a Commander in Chief, but I play one on TV.”
