Good to see that spreading "freedom" has succeeded

U.S. Military Budgets 1948-2015
Obama FY2010-15 $663.4 billion per year
Bush Jr FY2002-09* $634.9
Clinton FY1994-2001 $418.0
Bush Sr FY1990-93 $513.4
Reagan FY1982-89 $565.0
Carter FY1978-81 $428.1
Ford FY1976-77 $406.7
Nixon FY1970-75 $441.7
Johnson FY1965-69 $527.3
Kennedy FY1962-64 $457.2
Eisenhower FY1954-61 $416.3
Truman FY1948-53 $375.7

It seemed that under Obama, more money was spent on technology than on building ships and weapons for soldiers. That increase in advanced technology fed the technology jobs and big aviation contractors with very expensive aircraft and the creation of expensive technical ships that didn't seem to work the hottest.

Obama spent most of the budget on a few advanced technology businesses, probably good contractors that donate to the Democratic party the best. Ship builders seem to spend a lot on labor, not expensive computer systems where there is much less physical labor charge. Technology was gobbling up all the money in Obama's administration.
