Defense Budget and Obama


Obama will inherit an out-of-control defense budget because of the wars, all the new systems and equipment, and the corruption of the contractor system.  If he attacks this head on, he will be accused of being weak on defense.  To avoid this he should first start investigating waste, fraud and abuse.  This should be done with no fanfare until there is a sufficient number of successful cases.  This will help prime public opinion as well as make DOD officials more cautious in going after him.
