Obama's betrayal: No Iraqi peace dividend
Here's a dirty little secret that the liberals won't tell you. (That is, if they are even aware!)
There has been no Iraqi "Peace Dividend" so far under President Obama.
In the first quarter of this year, spending on national defense has declined by 1.1%,yet non-defense spending has only increased by 1,0%--a net loss in overall spending.
On the other hand, in the fourth quarter of 2008, defense spending under President Bush dropped 0.3% from the prior quarter and non-defense spending jumped 3.4%, meaning that President Bush gave the nation more of a "peace dividend" than the current, democratic/liberal president.
Sadly, most Republicans would probably be angry at Bush over this. They're too stupid to see how smart Bush really was!
