Questions. I've got questions.

With regard to the latest GOP attack point on Kerry with regard to his support of a reduction of $1.5 billion in the intelligence budge (in 1995) over five years...

Why is it that Republicans are more than willing to decry those who want to "throw money" at social problems. But any attempt to more efficiently allocate resources for intelligence (or national defense in general) is automatically characterized as being "soft" on defense?

That's a rhetorical question of course. It's all about scoring hits on political opponents. It has nothing to do with actual concern about the strength of our intelligence services.

(Thanks to Hesiod for inspiring this question).
