Because of the humanitarian relief an aircraft carrier group can provide, like air lifts, hospital facilities, food and water, unlike some, I support using our resources to assist our allies in Japan after the devastating earthquakes and tsunamis. So does Obama, apparently, as he sent the Reagan (without mentioning the name, btw) to the scene to provide such assistance.
In the same press conference, however, he said we shouldn’t be looking to defund Headstart (welfare) and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (leftist government propaganda machine), but should be looking at cuts to Defense. He enjoys using Defense for his benefit but doesn’t wish to fully fund it.
This press conference was a disaster with lies, deflection and a media uninterested in exploring the defeat of the Community Organizers in Wisconsin yesterday. He outright lied about Oil production having increased during his tenure.
A journey through the ocean of his soul would not get your feet wet.
