    The bottom line is the only thing that matters. If that impacts children, vets, guinea pigs, whatever - if it improves the bottom line they don't care who gets hurt.

    I was drawn to the flame because of the light, but got lost in the smoke.

      This seems to me to be far more political; just raw politics at this point, rather than attention to the bottom line.  There are a hell of a lot larger line items in the defense budget that could get the Bain Capital mindset further along. (Like aid to Israel, see david mizner's comment above).
