I am even more troubled by the decision of a cadidate to try to circumvent the Commander in Chief. I wonder what Obama would think if this happens to him. Never mind, he would not recognize it happening anyway.
It was not too long ago that the Clinton administration embarked upon realigning the defense budget after the Berlin Wall came down and the Soviet Union broke up. The Clinton administration called it the "Peace Dividend" and earmarked funding from defense to social programs. Obama is not pro military and would draw down our military even more than the Clinton administration and move more funds into International Aid and Social programs. Be alert to this man and his beliefs, it means a much less prepared United States.
