Obama on Pentagon waste: If US is nuked, I won’t be ‘whipping up a snack’

Ok. Now a fair question would be, “What will you be doing, Mr. President?” Seriously, though, he’s cutting small things here and there, and making a big show of it. At the same time, military spending continues to go up and both wars continue (even as we continue to hear talk about standing down in Iraq). The main thing is the “show;” stay on the tv, spew clever rhetoric, and keep the braindead supporters entertained.

From Raw Story:

PHOENIX, Arizona — US President Barack Obama, taking aim at costly military programs of questionable value, said Monday he really did not need a new presidential helicopter with an Armageddon-proof kitchen.

“It would let me cook a meal while under nuclear attack,” he mused.

“Now, let me tell you something: If the United States of America is under nuclear attack, the last thing on my mind will be whipping up a snack.”

Obama’s comments came as he pledged to put up “a fight” against “exotic projects that are years behind schedule and billions over budget” in a speech to the Veterans of Foreign Wars service organization.
