Military Officers Respond to President Obama on Sequestration and Support Mitt Romney.
In the foreign policy debate last week, President Obama ridiculed Gov. Romney’s observation that the U.S. Navy will soon have the smallest fleet size since WWI.
While it is true that our modern warships are vastly more capable than their predecessors, the President’s response demonstrated a clear misunderstanding of the use of naval power. Capability is essential, but it must be combined with presence to be effective. The most capable ship in the world can still only be in one place at a time.
As our Navy shrinks, the need for a naval presence has not. Consequently, we are demanding more and more of our diminishing resources, placing an ever growing burden on an aging fleet and our sailors and marines. Longer and more frequent deployments are wearing not only wearing out our men and women, but also our machines. Gov. Romney was right, the President was wrong.
Similarly, our Air Force and Army are in vital need of recapitalization. We have used up much of our inventories in the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts. We have not procured new equipment to replace that which has been lost to combat and normal attrition—and what remains is aging rapidly. Further, our Army and Marine Corps are suffering the effects of excessive back-to-back deployments. Shrinking those forces, and denying them the funds necessary to modernize, is a prescription for failure, not success. It will also hurt the USA economy by an estimated 4,5 million job loses
President Obama engaged in an effort to deceive the audience when he asserted that Gov. Romney wanted to add funds to the Defense budget that “the Pentagon had not even requested.” The Pentagon never “requests” more funds than it is allowed to by the White House leadership—no matter how great the need. Those of us who have retired are not so constrained and can speak the truth.
Here again, Gov. Romney was right.
Endorse Governor Mitt Romney for President. Leadership with Strength, Honer, Truth and Respect

During the Debate 3, President Barack Obama was Arrogant, Disrespectfully, Angry, Rude and Condescending to Governor Mitt Romney. Obama did not Act or Look Presidential.
We Feel Governor Mitt Romney Pasted the Presidential Test and is Ready to Lead USA
We Support Mitt Romney, found him to be a Smart, Respectable and Decent Gentleman.
Governor Mitt Romney Looked Much More Presidential, Ready to be Commander-in-Chief.
Mitt Romney said America Needs a Strong Economy in order to have a Strong Military for our National Security right now and the Future. ...... We All Agree.
Women came away from this Debate with a Very Good Impression of Governor Mitt Romney, in that he would be a “ A Safe Pair of Hands.” in Foreign Policy and a Strong Economy. We Trust Him More. Obama lied about Libya on 9 11 ( a 8 hour fire fight, Obama watched did nothing)
In Foreign Policy We feel Mitt Romney is Tough Enough to do what’s necessary, but laid-back enough not to do too much and get us into another war.
Miit Romney Did Not attack President Obama's Policies, he Simply Pointed Out a Few Needed Improvements in a Very Respectable Way.
During the debate Governor Mitt Romney Seemed More Like a Leader, Smart, Respectable, Thoughtful and Considerate. He looked and Acted more Like the New American President that our Nation and the rest of the World Needs so Disparately in These Troubling Economic Times.
Governor Mitt Romney was Calm, Thoughtful, Relaxed, Steady, Looked Like A Smart Gentleman and More Presidential.
Romney Looked and Acted as if he was Ready to Take the Job as Commander-in-Chief ASAP.
President Barack Obama Looked more like a Very Disparate Candidate and Challenger, very Negative, Acted like a Disrespectful Attack Dog Instead of the President of the United States.
Mitt Romney Expressed his Concern about Iran's Nuclear Threat that is 4 Years Closer and the USA Support of Israel, our Good Friend and Middle East Ally. The strained relationship with the Obama Administration.
Tonight Romney Impressed the Ladies Very much, in that a Vote for Him is a Vote for American Security, Peace and Safety, a Strong Economy, a Strong Military, Millions of Higher Paying Jobs, Prosperity for the Middle Class and Others. and a Quiet Peaceful Life for USA and all People.
The World is Much to Scary these days, Americans Aren’t Looking For a Scary Arrogant, Angry. Rude, Disrespectfully and Weak President. Barack Obama is Not the One to Lead us Any Longer
Tonight we Came Away with the Feeling that President Barack Obama is extremely a more Scary Candidate then the President of USA.
We are Concerned about America's Weaken Relationship with Israel, a Nuclear Iran, our Weaken Economy and the Huge 16 Trillion Dollars Debt, that in itself Threatens our National Security.
Americans, Black, White, Latinos, Wake Up, USA Debt is Bigger than our Gross National Product.
We Can Not Afford Four More Years of President Obama's Spending, Borrowing and lies.
We Can Not Afford Another 5 or 6 Trillion Dollars in More Debt From China or Other Countries.
Our Jewish Women's Focus Group of almost 8000 Democrats Therefore Proudly Endorse Governor Mitt Romney as the Next President of the United States of America.

The Obamacare Failed Health Care Plan to cost $1.76 trillion over 10 yrs,
President Obama's national health care law will cost $1.76 trillion over a decade, according to a new projection released today by the Congressional Budget Office, rather than the $940 billion forecast when it was signed into law.
Democrats employed many accounting tricks when they were pushing through the national health care legislation, the most egregious of which was to delay full implementation of the law until 2014, so it would appear cheaper under the CBO's standard ten-year budget window and, at least on paper, meet Obama's pledge that the legislation would cost "around $900 billion over 10 years." When the final CBO score came out before passage, critics noted that the true 10 year cost would be far higher than advertised once projections accounted for full implementation.
Today, the CBO released new projections from 2013 extending through 2022, and the results are as critics expected: the ten-year cost of the law's core provisions to expand health insurance coverage has now ballooned to $1.76 trillion. That's because we now have estimates for Obamacare's first nine years of full implementation, rather than the mere six when it was signed into law. Only next year will we get a true ten-year cost estimate, if the law isn't overturned by the Supreme Court or repealed by then. Given that in 2022, the last year available, the gross cost of the coverage expansions are $265 billion, we're likely looking at about $2 trillion over the first decade, or more than double what Obama advertised.
UPDATE: I've done another post with additional details from the CBO report.
