Romney+Ryan And Military Spending

Romney+Ryan talk about cutting federal spending root and  branch except in one area.  Romney has proposed indexing the military spending to 4% of the Gross Domestic Product.  This does not seem to make any sense.  Besides costing a fortune as the years go by, it also fails to plan defense based on real world issues and threats and invites the Pentagon (which has not yet suffered an audit) to spend up to an artifical ceiling.  This NY Times article by Carol Giacomo is worth reading.
