Out of war money

War Funds Dwindling, GAO Warns (washingtonpost.com)

It goes without saying that George W. Bush is a great wartime president. Unfortunately, that is all he is good at handling. He forgot about where the money to fund war comes from -- you and me. It doesn't grow on trees, you know. There is a limited amount of it. Perhaps this could've been avoided had we not driven the deficit to record highs while continuing tax breaks for the wealthy.

John Kerry would ensure that the domestic issues are straightened out first, so that we are properly prepared for war, should the need arise.

UPDATE:

It seems that Bush is terrible with the military, too. So much for his so-called strength.
