This is actually a serious issue. Cheney has been running around for months talking about how Kerry tried to make our country less secure by voting against this and that, cutting the military budget, etc. Now, everyone *knows* that Dick Cheney presided over a massive post-cold war reduction in the size of the military, the number of military bases, etc... But, still, Dick gets on TV and talks about how Kerry hates our military. It's really quite sad that we have such a dishonest Vice President.
From Atrios It's bizarre really. He cut the budget, cut the personnel, cut a lot of weapons systems.
