Source:The Young Turks– Dick Cheney, versus Dwight Eisenhower. One led us into the 2003 Iraq War. The other led us to victory in Europe during World War II. Who do you playing for you?
“Former Vice President Dick Cheney said Monday that President Barack Obama is “devastating” the U.S. military and needs to divert more resources away from domestic priorities such as rebuilding roads and making sure low-income people can get food.
During an event sponsored by Politico, Cheney said the next president needs to “turn around the whole trend” of cutting defense dollars.
“That ought to be our top priority for spending. Not food stamps, not highways or anything else,” Cheney said. “Your No. 1 responsibility as president is to support and defend the Constitution of the United States. [Obama] is the commander-in-chief and he’s absolutely devastating the United States military today.””* The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur breaks it down.”

“Dick Cheney: Spend More On Defense, Not On Roads Or Food Stamps”
From The Huffington Post
Darth Vader Dick Cheney on the loose. So no I don’t like Dick Cheney or have much respect for our former Vice President, but Cenk Uygur in this video is the perfect example of why I don’t use The Young Turks as a credible news source other than to hear what the Far-Left and the rabid partisan left-wingers in the country are thinking.
Dick Cheney didn’t say we should pay for our defense and national security at the expense of everything else in that interview. He said that: “National defense should be our number one national priority. Not Food Stamps or infrastructure.” Which is a huge difference.
Now here is where I agree with Cenk: Dick Cheney is: “the living embodiment of what President Dwight Eisenhower’s feared” in his Military Industrial Complex speech. That some people especially in the military and people who have worked with the military as Dick Cheney did first as Secretary of Defense and then later as Vice President of the United States, someone who would put no limits on what we should spend when it comes to national defense. “That there is no such thing as waste in the defense budget. And there aren’t many if any limits to what our military can do in the world.”
