Walter Lippmann
1943

Lippmann, who has become best known these days when vilified by Glenn Beck, probably deserves vilification. But he did make a valid point here.

It comes to mind as the FIRST cuts the Obama Administration seeks are in our, at war, Defense Department.

I can easily envision cuts in our military apparatus, just not before a few hundred billion elsewhere.
