Dick Cheney: Obama would rather spend money on food stamps than the military

It’s quite simple really: If voters continue to elect and re-elect those who insist on turning America into an entitlement society, it must come at the expense of something else. Dick Cheney’s statement caused controversy, but he merely pointed out the obvious:

Former vice president Dick Cheney went on Fox’s “Hannity” show last night to discuss the recent plans to reduce the Army to levels not seen since 1940 — through a reduction in personnel and removing a class of warplanes from the field — in an effort to cut budgets after a decade of war, calling the decision “over the top.” He told host Sean Hannity that President Obama would “much rather spend the money on food stamps than he would on a strong military or support for our troops.”

But, like I said in the intro, I wouldn’t put this all on Obama — the blame can be shared among millions. “The One” was elected and re-elected. This one’s on voters too, and unfortunately the rest of us who see what’s coming are forced to go down with a ship they’re poking full of holes.
