Is Obama Destroying the Military?

It is often said by conservatives and Tea Party groups that Barack Obama is anti-military and, according to neoconservative scholar Dinesh D'Souza, an anti-colonialist. This critique of Obama (though false) is sometimes used to attack the non-interventionist mindset.

Laurence Vance writes on this in his new article:

"I am not a fan of Barack Obama. But since there are a lot of things that could be said about the president—all of them bad—it was perplexing to me why some far-right conservative Christians would lie about him when expressing their displeasure. It was perplexing until I realized that their real agenda was honoring their true god—the U.S. military.
"I think the only good thing that could be said for Obama is that he apparently loves his family. I have written on several occasions about his radical associations, his life spent in the service of racial preference, his aberrant Christianity, his warmongering, his welfare statism, his abominable heath care act, his economic ignorance, his disregard of the Constitution, his drug warring, his dangerous views on gun control, his destructive foreign policy, and his overall extreme left-wing views. I believe Obama to be one of the worst presidents in American history. He is almost as bad as George W. Bush.
"I have seen it written by conservative Christians that Obama is gutting the military. Well, since the Bible says to “prove all things” (1 Thessalonians 5:21), I think we need to take a look at some facts and figures to see if this is the case or if these conservative Christians are just polluting the air with lies about a man that an abundance of negative things could already be said about."

I concur with Vance on everything he says. I agree that Obama is one of the worst presidents in American history, next to FDR, Woodrow Wilson, Teddy Roosevelt, Herbert Hoover (who was actually a statist, despite the claims made to the contrary) and Lincoln (who really didn't care about slavery and fought a fundamentally preventive war; Tom DiLorenzo, Jeffrey Rogers Hummel, and Charles Adams have shown the truth about the Civil War and Lincoln). And don't forget George W. Bush, who laid the foundation for Obama, just like Herbert Hoover laid the foundation for FDR.
