Captain Kickass is responding to a question at the G-20 forum in a rambling semi-coherent way.
Go listen if you want to hear even more of the Lightweight than you get from the MSM, but here's a money quote for you.
"Somehow people say, why are you doing that, I'm not sure that's good politics. I'm doing it because I said I was going to do it and I think it's the right thing to do. People should learn that lesson about me because next year when I start presenting some very difficult choices to the country, I hope some of these folks who are hollering about deficits and debt step-up because I'm calling their bluff. We'll see how much of that, how much of the political arguments that they're making right now are real and how much of it was just politics."

He also praised Gates for slashing the military budget more than any other SecDef in recent memory. Probably as far back as Jimmy Carter.
