What a Vile Human Being
Saw this on the news earlier this week, and here's a link from the Huffington Post.
WASHINGTON -- Former Vice President Dick Cheney said Monday that President Barack Obama is "devastating" the U.S. military and needs to divert more resources away from domestic priorities such as rebuilding roads and making sure low-income people can get food.
"That ought to be our top priority for spending. Not food stamps, not highways or anything else," Cheney said. "Your No. 1 responsibility as president is to support and defend the Constitution of the United States. [Obama] is the commander-in-chief and he's absolutely devastating the United States military today.”
Disclaimer: in my title for this post I'm using the term "human being" advisedly.
I haven't used or seen the phrase "guns versus butter" of late. It's time to bust it back out, I suppose.
