    First Read - Romney warns of perils of shrinking military at Memorial Day event

    USA to Dick Romney, "we have had the LARGEST military int he world, second to none since 1944, and yet we haven't won a war since WWII". WTF is this guy thinking? HE wants to be our POTUS, and doesn't seem to care who knows that he is a warmonger. We need to stop looking to pick a fight. Enough already!

    Using Memorial Day to do an informercial for the defense lobby?

    How is that not as bad or worse than what Chris Hayes said?

    Interestingly, it reinforces the point that Hayes clumsily tried to make.

    We won Desert Shield/Storm and Iraq.

    We could have won them all, if dems would quick starting wars and then not following through.

    But, our military needs to shrink to within our boarders. Seems dems love closing bases and putting Vets into the streets, but closing foreign bases seems to be a no no.

    So we go from proven war monger obama to possible warmonger Mitt.

    6 of one, half dozen of the other



    should of supported Paul

    No war is "winnable" for dems...................Thats why they always leave the hard work up to others more capable........

    4-5% of gdp for defense spending is perfectly acceptable

    And the thousands of lives lost for our "victory" in Iraq? Is that perfectly acceptable as well?

    :lol:

    Well, Bush, then Obama claimed we won.

    so...

    And Paul supports your desire to shrink the military and leave others alone.

    So if he's and idiot and you think like him.....
