As some struggle to bring federal spending under control and restore fiscal sanity to our country, we see a Defense Department cut that even the most aggressive of hawks can support. Meanwhile on the Left, liberals shamelessly reach for human shields to defend their government-god and keep his largess from being cut. What they don’t realize is that the Left no longer has a monopoly on the media, and the American people are awake to the need for us to get our fiscal house in order.
