Dave Weigel reports that Republican presidential candidate Tim Pawlenty argued against cutting the military earlier today at a speech and press gathering at the Cato Institute in Washington, D.C.:
Cato doesn't have a reputation as being home to stalwart proponents of a big and strong American military, so it’s good that Pawlenty didn’t try to deliver a crowd pleasing answer, instead. And, of course, it’s reassuring to see that this Republican candidate doesn't plan to run to the left of President Obama on foreign policy and homeland security.
