“This Is No Way To Run a Government!”

Defense Secretary Robert Gates has seen a lot.

So when he says that the growing deficit is a problem, you better believe him, reports The Fiscal Times.

“We’ve lost the ability to execute even the most basic functions of government,” said Gates.  Appearing by satellite at a panel for the Center for Strategic & International Studies, Gates attacked both the current ‘sequestering’ plan, while at the same time decrying the national debt.

Gates says that no matter what, the growing debt will compromise national security.

Calling it “managerial cowardice,” Gates added: “This is no way to run a government.”
