    KRISTEN ROBERTS: Why did the committee choose to go against the advice of the generals?

    REP. PAUL RYAN: We don’t think the generals are giving us their true advice. We don’t think the generals believe that their budget is really the right budget. I believe that the president’s budget by virtue of the fact that when he released his budget number of about $500 billion, the number was announced at the same time they announced the beginning of their strategy review of the Pentagon’s budget. So what we get from the Pentagon is more of a budget driven strategy, not a strategy driven budget.

    Nobody has an opinion on this Ryan asshole calling our Generals liars?

    So much for Republicans supporting the troops.

    I forget which one but one of the generals came out and cremated Ryan for this BS. Then Ryan backed down, changed his tune and said "Oh, I didn't mean they were "lying", I meant they weren't telling the um, err... well fuck."

    It was Army General Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, that took issue with those comments as one might expect.

    Of course it was General, a more honest phrasing would have been: it was a strategy-driven process to which we mapped to increase our budget.

    You don't know what you're talking about.

    This is just another phase from the left attempting to demonize the GOP for the coming election.

    Generals have to follow orders and Obama is the COC......so anything that comes from the White House is untrustworthy. Everything must be questioned.

    It's interesting that the General was one of those perfumed warriors that came out of Personnel, better known as S-1.

    He's the perfect spokesman for Obama.

    Either they are lying because they are syncophants to the president, or they are incompetent. I'd prefer to believe they are lying to keep the stassi from the door.
