With Barack Obama’s hidden defense cuts portending a disastrous toll for national security, Gov. Mitt Romney is calling on the President to deal honestly with the American people and quit “dismantling our military.”
Obama’s defense cuts are known only in part to the American the people. And that’s because Obama has yet to explain the exact details of them. What we do know is they are so drastic that even Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) believes the Democrats could lose even more seats in the House over them in November. And Sec. of Defense Leon Panetta has said these cuts “will be devastating to our national security and to our economy.”
So here’s what Gov. Mitt Romney is saying:
A year ago, Barack Obama set in motion the sequestration process that is leading to imminent disastrous cuts in our military might. The President is required by law to tell the American people how he would implement these cuts. But he has chosen to ignore the deadline for doing so. The American people have had enough of evasion and of finger pointing. They just want answers. It’s time the President stops stonewalling, stops dismantling our military, and starts providing answers.
