A few years ago FrnakJ said, “I’m not saying Obama is out to destroy America, but his actions make more sense if you assume that.”
“Right now,” Odierno said, “we have in the Army two brigades that are trained. That’s it. Two.”

Obama has no fucking idea about how anything but marxist, chicago-machine politics works, he’s shirking the one duty that the Constitution allows him to do and Minitrue is refusing to report on that.
You’ll see lefties claim under Obama the federal gov’t actually shrank.
They’re possibly correct about that. He increased the bureaucracy even more than Bush, but he’s busily cutting the military to the bone.
So as the world is going to hell, he’s slashing our military’s size and readiness.
