Barbour suggests reducing Afghanistan presence and defense spending

Ben Smith and others have remarked on the fact the Republican presidential hopeful Haley Barbour is considering reducing American presence in Afghanistan and finding some budget savings in defense. While details are sketchy, he appears to be scouting out a position to Obama's left on these issues. I'd love to have some allies on the right wing for re-evaluating our presence in Afghanistan and casting a skeptical eye on defense spending. And maybe this will prompt Obama to get out faster.
