We live in tense times, and there are many threats to America's national security - North Korea, Iran, bioweapons, suitcase nukes, Al Qaeda and more.
But according to Admiral Mike Mullen, the chair of the Joint Chiefs, the single biggest threat to our national security isn't Osama bin Laden, but "Obama's been Spendin."
As of 2012, just the annual interest taxpayers have to pay on the National Debt will be $571 billion dollars... as much as our entire military budget. And as money grows ever tighter, it is the military that will get budget cuts before bloated social entitlement programs.
But even putting military spending aside, it's perfectly possible that Obama and the democrats can simply spend America into true and absolute oblivion... destroying the country as completely and utterly as any external attack or internal act of terror.
Hope n' Change applauds Admiral Mullen for his candor, and willingness to speak truth to power. And we won't be shocked if Obama gives his job to General Petraeus too.
