As Obama slashes the military, he warns that Republicans had better not carp
Evidently, he feels his 30-something percent approval rate — coupled with a decision to downsize the military in a world growing increasingly dangerous (thanks in large part to Obama, Hillary Clinton, and John Kerry, who love them some Muslim Brotherhood folk and some communists, to boot) — gives him great power of the GOP.
And he’s right. Because the contemporary GOP is a bunch of go-along-to-get-re-elected (and eventually, on to K street!) pussies who are more interested in waging war with the conservatives who make up the party base than the leftists who are working diligently to turn a representative republican into a Potemkin democracy run by a king, a permanent ruling aristocracy, and a bureaucratic enforcement apparatus — all of which have the backing of activist courts and the media.
They’ve been bought and paid for, and not rocking the boat is what they’re all about. Because rocking the boat — like evil Ted Cruz and crazed Mike Lee do — means that some of those gold pieces may fall over the side and be lost, when they really should be in the pockets of the pirates captaining this god forsaken ship of state.
