So, the flip-flopper-in-chief flip-flops on his promise to remove all US Troops out of Afghanistan. You know, the same promise he made on Iraq. Now we live in a world where liberals change names and are calling our US Troops “advisers.” If you are in a military uniform and are carrying weapon in a war zone you are a US soldier, not an adviser. However, we know most liberal are stupid and can’t figure out the difference.
From USA Today:
President Obama made good on his threat to veto a $612 billion defense policy bill Thursday, bringing the fight over domestic spending into the realm of national security.
Speaking to reporters for four minutes in a rare public veto message, Obama said the bill fell “woefully short” because it kept across-the-board budget cuts in place, blocked needed military reforms and prohibited him from closing the prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. With a pen stroke of his left hand, he sent the bill back to Congress, saying, “My message to them is simple. Let’s do this right.”
So, let’s get this straight. Both Democrats and Republicans supported this bill and passed it to Obama. Big Baby Obama then vetoes the bipartisan defense bill because it blocks him from closing down Guantanamo Bay. Obama has been hell-bent on bringing terrorist to US soil so he can give them rights just like the average US citizen is granted.
So what’s Obama’s problem? He wants more government spending…because you know adding close to $9 trillion to the National Debt just doesn’t phase this guy at all
Obama’s main objection is that the bill anticipates off-budget spending to increase the defense budget without increasing domestic spending first.
This is the same guy who complained about Bush adding $4.9 trillion to the national deficit and then goes on to spend more than the other 42 presidents combined ($19.1 and climbing). The media will make this about how Obama is showing Republicans who is boss but won’t report that it was a bipartisan bill that was passed by a 270-156 in the House and 70-27 in the Senate.
Then the idiot Obama supporters will keep claiming Republicans are “obstructionist” because they forget that Democrats have controlled at least 2/3rds of the government from 2007-2015.
The veto of the National Defense Authorization Act was an extraordinary
