Obama Nation

With events in Georgia over the past week, it is time to revisit Barack Obama’s stated views on America’s defense needs. In the video above, Obama pronounces a McGovernite disarmament credo:

I will cut investments in unproven missile defense systems…

…I will not weaponize space…

…I will slow development of future combat systems…

…and I will institute an independent “Defense Priorities Board” to ensure the quadrennial defense review is not used to justify unnecessary spending…

…I will set a goal of a world without nuclear weapons…

…and to seek that goal, I will not develop nuclear weapons…

…I will seek a global ban on the production of fissile material…

…and I will negotiate with Russia to take our ICBMs off hair-trigger alert…

…and to achieve deep cuts in our nuclear arsenals…

Isn’t it time for someone who covers politics for a living to ask Obama about this credo?

JOHN adds: When Obama refers to “unproven missile defense systems,” does he mean the ones we’re installing in Poland?
