Obama Wants a Strong Military... Or Does He?

Today, President Obama spoke at the dedication of Abraham Lincoln Hall at National Defense University.

In one portion of the speech he spoke of the need to keep a strong military to meet the needs of a post 9/11 world.

Now, make no mistake: This nation will maintain our military dominance. We will have the strongest armed forces in the history of the world. And we will do whatever it takes to sustain our technological advantage, and to invest in the capabilities that we need to protect our interests, and to defeat and deter any conventional enemy.

This sounds like a different Barack Obama than the one we saw during the campaign.

So which is it? Well, one month ago Obama requested the defense department to cut their budget by $55 billion.

It almost seems like he says what people want him to say and then acts as he likes behind closed doors.
