    Pentagon budget 'loaded with fat'
    July 1, 2011: For lawmakers on the hunt for budget savings, the Pentagon's $500 billion budget is a great place to start.

    I sincerely hope Obama has the cajones to veto this.

    I agree, and it wouldn't make any difference what party is in power - unfortunately.

    This is what you get for not passing a budget because it might make you look bad when you have a supermajority in the House/Senate... This is what you get for taking every chance to take shots at the Rep party. Lets get real though, Obama wants this budget because it grows Government, now he gets to say “Reps spend too much and love military!” And that’s why Obama is a run of the mill politician, no leadership qualities, every word is meant to divide and every Bill is meant to Grow Government, Republican or Democrat bills.

    We need a real leader with intelligent on matters that are relevant to the job.
