You still won't admit that had lets say Romney won, then signed a 700 billion dollar defense bill you would be railing on how stupid he is and how wrong it is. Admit it you Obama just as much of a hawk for defense spending as qany Repub. Sure he may not want to send troops in as much but nonetheless he didn't really want to cut it.
