Barack Obama: CHANGE U.S. Defense Back to Clinton and Carter Days

"This video -- presumably made for a very, very, very liberal audience -- is evidence that Barack Obama is ill-prepared, at best, to serve as America's Commander-in-Chief."
--Doug Ross

Obama's "change" sounds like the "same old, same old" from Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton.

Doug Ross has performed a much-needed public service.

Must watch video: Barack Obama Promises to Disarm America

Doug posted the above video and information on what "hope" looks like--through the eyes of Democrat presidential candidate, Barack Obama.

The above video and Doug's list of how Obama has voted in his short time in the Senate on important issues is must-read for anyone thinking that they might vote for the junior senator from Illinois.

Highlights from the video

...I will cut investments in unproven [sic] missile defense systems...
...I will not weaponize space...
...I will slow development of Future Combat Systems...
...and I will institute a "Defense Priorities Board" to [prevent] 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 development 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...
Barack Obama's plans for America in a dangerous world.

Should Obama make it to the White house, it would seem that after his above "changes", America's best defense would consist of: hope.

Hope that Iran doesn't nuke us.

Or Russia.

Barack Obama is for "change". But his rhetoric sounds like the same old Democrat line whenever it comes to defending American interests.

After Jimmy Carter, the American military had to re-tool. After Bill Clinton's "peace dividend", the same was true.

When you take military and defense options away from yourself, you leave little room to maneuver in an emergency.

Neither president had much of a will for a strong defense.

Carter's response to the invasion of Afghanistan was to boycott the Olympics. His military response to the Iranian hostage crisis was--do you really have the time?

Clinton's response was always to bomb and fire rockets--sometimes at empty buildings.

Re-watch the video and read the Doug Ross story.

And think about Obama's "change" in America's national defense.

Does the U.S. military have time in this dangerous world to recover from an Obama presidency?
