    Deficits have no good or bad designation rather, necessary or unnecessary. Is a deficit's purpose to build our defense capabilities or to foster Socialist agendas? BHO's track record is self evident.

    Your chart illustrated two things, how our economy dwarfs theirs and that to maintain #1 status in the world, you definitely need the biggest and most bad arse war club available.

    The linked article illustrates BHO's record on our military.

    Thank you for providing a link that proves you wrong. You sound like a liberal trying to argue that the solution to everything is more money.

    From your link...
    The most recent Obama budget proposed a 7.8 percent increase in the base Defense Department budget between 2015 and 2016. The spending bill enacted this fall puts the defense budget on a path to start growing in fiscal year 2016, up about 6 percent from the previous year.

    "It’s still not quite as much as the president requested, but it’s much closer," said Todd Harrison, director of defense budget analysis at the Center for Strategic and International Studies.

    ^^^ Try quoting the entire article which clearly indicated serious reductions in the part of the military that holds ground. I calculated you'd cherry pick to slant as well as obfuscate to be disingenuous by ignoring the total picture. The fact BHO wanted to increase nukes while decrying them provided clear evidence of more of his duplicity.

    Additionally, consider this in light of BHO's push for more nukes:

    Putin
    HRC
    Clinton Family Foundation
    Uranium One

    Didn't he push for more nukes in the second term? What was it he said to the Russian PM (Medvedev) whilst on a hot mike?

    Follow the money?

    If anybody knows how to use and abuse money it’s the Military.
