Romney Clueless...? Or is it Carl Levin?

I found it odd (and rude, of course) that Sen Carl Levin would call Romney "Clueless" about the military when our own president didn't have a clue about anything about running a country when he was Levin's candidate...I also took issue with much of what Levin said about the military because I've watched so closely the military cuts debate, etc.  Something didn't ring true, SO, I emailed our friend Mustang about THIS ARTICLE's information and he straightens Levin (and us) out (as usual):

"When you look up the word ‘dishonest’ in the dictionary, you’ll see that Carl Levin’s picture accompanies the definition.  This is why I have such contempt for the man.  Actually, all the armed services receive “budget guidance” from the administration (Department of Defense) at the beginning of the budget cycle.  It could be something as simple as, “Reduce operating budgets by 25%,” or “reduce R&D by 20%.”  Thus, the service chiefs know not to ask for more than a certain amount in each of the budgetary areas.

When Levin tells anyone that our military leadership decided to reduce expenditures, therefore, he is lying. 
By the way, did you know the ranking minority member on the Senate Armed Forces Committee is John McCain?  This is noteworthy because McCain finished at the bottom of his class at the U. S. Naval Academy.  In effect, then, a liar and a moron are supervising the entire Department of Defense.  I feel comforted."

Do you feel comforted, too?   Ya, me neither.   God help us all.

Is that true for every Cabinet department?

Ugh.

And I just woke up.

A synonym for liar is Democrat.

The DoD is the only department to take real cuts. Levin is clueless, but then he's a democrat, so I'm being redundant...

New meaning to the word idiot.

Unfortunately here in Michigan the Union Zombies have declared Levin to be just shy of God. It is going to be hard to flush him.

Shoprat, I hope you open WHAT HE SAID again :-)

You all are so right in your comments (literally and figuratively!)

Spreadeagle..good one!

That's probably true, however the soldiers on the ground have more brains than the morons, so that's a good thing.

Ah..poor old Carl. He looks just plain awful and with those little reading glasses perched down low on his nose...well, I think it all speaks for itself.

Unfortunately there are always ding bats running things .
It's why we're in the mess we are in.

Usually, when they start talking cutting spending in D.C. , it means gutting the military.
Almost always.

As usual, Mustang's comments are spot on. I certainly miss his blog.

Lying and Politician I believe are synonymous with each other. :-)
