Steve Benen: In a speech on Friday, Republican presidential frontrunner Mitt Romney made an important vow: “As President …. I will reverse President Obama’s massive defense cuts. Time and again, we have seen that attempts to balance the budget by weakening our military only lead to a far higher price, not only in treasure, but in blood.”

…. Here are the Pentagon budgets over the last six years, with the red columns showing defense spending under Bush, and the blue columns showing defense spending under Obama:

I realize Romney can be a little slow on the uptake, but when the Pentagon gets more money – in some cases, even money it didn’t ask for – that’s not a “cut.” If Romney wants to be taken seriously on these issues, he should probably take the time to brush up on these pesky details.
