All the complaining about George Bush and war spending that was bankrupting the nation turns out to have been a bunch of hot air.
House Democrats have proposed a war spending bill that surpasses even what the free spending Barack Obama expected. Funny though, the proposal doesn’t include one dime to close down Gitmo. Of course not, where will you put the prisoners? We know Obama wants to turn some loose in your neighborhood, but even he understands there are some that should never see the light of day again. And Gitmo remains open.
House Appropriations Committee Chairman David Obey even threw in a billion for Pakistan, although he doesn’t think they have what it takes to save their country. Throw ’em billion anyway. What kind of useful things could you do with a billion dollars? Keep in mind that money is on loan from China.
That couldn’t be any worse than another $400 million to Mexican drug cartels. Sure, the original plan was for the Mexican government to use that money to fight the drug war. Isn’t that always the original plan?
Democrats can pass just about anything they want at will at this point, so something similar to this mess will end up on Obama’s desk. Obey’s own words pretty much proves that the Dems really don’t have a foreign policy, so they’re just throwing money around until they formulate one. That’s what happens when you focus on school book socialist ideology and not see the world as it really is.
