The grueling health care debate hasn’t robbed President Obama of his dry sense of humor: Taking aim at excess military spending, he announced on Monday that he did not need a new presidential helicopter with a nuclear-proof kitchen. “It would let me cook a meal while under nuclear attack,” Obama said. "Now, let me tell you something: If the United States of America is under nuclear attack, the last thing on my mind will be whipping up a snack." Speaking a bit more broadly, he said, “If a project doesn't support our troops, if it does not make America safer, we will not fund it. If a system doesn't perform, we will terminate it. And if Congress sends me a defense bill loaded with a bunch of pork, I will veto it.” Obama also defended the war in Afghanistan in his speech.
