One of the few campaign promises that Barack Obama has kept was this: "We are going to change the United States of America!"

As in many other cases, those who were thrilled by the thought of "change" seldom seemed to consider whether it would be a change for the better or for the worse. True believers in the Obama cult assumed that it had to be a change for the better.

Now it is slowly dawning on more people that it is a change for the worse-- runaway government spending, under the banners of "stimulus" and "jobs" is not stimulating anything except political pay-offs to special interests. As for jobs, the percentage of the population with jobs keeping on declining, even as the administration points to all the jobs it is creating.

It is of course not pointing to all the other jobs that it is destroying, whether by taking money out of the private sector or by loading so many mandates on employers that labor is made artificially too expensive for many employers to do much hiring.

But the most dangerous and most lasting damage that this administration has done to this nation has been in the international jungle, where it is alienating our long-time allies, dismantling our credibility by reneging on our commitments to putting up a missile shield in Eastern Europe and-- above all-- doing nothing meaningful to stop the leading terror-sponsoring nation in the world, Iran, from getting nuclear weapons.

We could deter the Soviet Union with our own nuclear weapons, but no one can deter suicidal fanatics, whether they are international terrorists of the sort that caused 9/11 or suicidal fanatics in charge of the government of Iran, who have long been supplying international networks of suicidal fanatics.

Threatening to launch nuclear retaliation against the people of Iran will not deter them. They have already shown how little they care about the people of Iran and how much they care about their fanatical beliefs and hate-filled agendas.

How much does our own administration in Washington care about the American people and their national security? This is not a question you would usually have to ask about any administration of either party. But this is not like any other administration, and Barack Obama is unlike any other President of the United States in having come from a background of decades of associations and alliances with people who resent this country and its people.

Against that background, the Obama administration's undermining of our long-standing international alliances with Britain and Israel, among others, while seeking to reach accommodations with nations hostile to this country, raises painful questions and even more painful possibilities for the future.

Gratuitous affronts to both Britain and Israel began early in the Obama administration, including a clear downgrading of state visits from their national leaders. These affronts were pitched at a level unlikely to be noticed by the general public but unmistakable to anyone familiar with international relations, including both our allies and our enemies. But most of the pro-Obama media said little to alert the public.

It is not only in our foreign relations that the administration's commitment to the national security of the United States is open to serious question. Domestically, as well, the same serious and painful questions arise.

After spending hundreds of billions of dollars on political pork barrel projects from coast to coast-- some frivolous beyond belief-- its only major cut in federal spending has been its move to cut $100 billion from the Defense Department's budget.

If there was ever a time when we needed a larger standing army, as distinguished from relying on National Guard troops, taken suddenly from civilian life and sent on multiple tours of combat duty, this is that time. We need a bigger and constantly modernizing military, not a bargain basement military, trimmed down to leave more money for pork barrel spending.

Sometimes small things can give you a better clue than large things. A recent editorial in Investor's Business Daily pointed out that hundreds of captured illegal aliens from terrorist-sponsoring nations were released on their own recognizance within the United States. Are these the actions of an administration that is serious about the national security of the American people?

These people have committed treason against the United States of America

Care about National Security ?

The Borders Wide Open !

"Cut 100 billion from the Defence Budget"

Those are the Best People have

Men and women serving in our armed force's

We don't want leave them out to hang dry !

This Administration is so A***** Backwards F******** up

I do not beleive there is hope for them

Everyone I speak to Despise's our current government

As for myself I think they have not an ounce of Patriotism in their blood, and only care about their own political Agenda

That's what you get when you elect a career Politician instead of Patriot from the business world who Loves and has served this country

Do not elect another politician to the office of President

Say no to the Electorial vote it's crime and take's away your "power of the vote" come election day

Take America Back

Rid the oval office of career politicians :nuts:

Dude, they are trolls. One of the less annoying variety as they don't post porn links or try to sell us Cialis. But all they are here to do is fill political threads with there own high fives and political mistatements to the point of obscuring the original intent of a thread. Even if it is their own.

Just think if Sowell had fear-monger pontificated like this sometime after Bush came into office ... 9/11 and the ensueing holocaust(s) might not have happened ... wait, errrr ...

I think we need new ideas implemented for National Security.

I think Israel has matured as a country into a regional power. They should no longer require special treatment. The British connection comes and goes depending on how the US and UK controlling parties get along. It will be fine.

We need to secure our borders, focus less on other nation's health and more on our nation's health.

We need to change the Income Tax to a consumption Tax and reduce the concern over Tax shortfalls of foreign workers including illegals.

It's not Rocket Science until you include politics:huh:

:cheers:

The statist party has no interest in national security, unless it gives them more control over the US populace.. they run 12 yr old girls through full body scans, and leave the borders wide open for anyone who wants to drag an 80lb suitcase bomb through.

They pat down grandma, while going out of their way to avoid confrontation with 19-29 yr old brown males.

You won't get national security from the statist, because they don't like national sovereignty to begin with..

They restrict your freedoms and put you in jail for "crime", while playing catch-and-release with those in the country illegally.

Get real, the federal gov is bankrupt both morally and fiscally, and it's probably beyond repair..

Barry is doing excactly what he said he would do as president, end the wars (doen't feel comfortable with the term with Victory), Cut Government spending on high dollar military spending (as in F22) and provide lip service to the countries that are against us theorlogically ( as in believing that socalism or dictatorship is better than a republic) and our smart enemies know how big of a joke Barry's word is (bend over):surprised

Bon is absolutely correct. Neither of you give opinion -you give snark. There is nothing to debate.

As for the above ellipses referenced content, I have seen more and more people changing thier viewpoints on this administration and the direction the whole progressive agenda, embraced by both democrats and republicans have taken us. Even though Obama isn't the sole focus of the opposition to he progressive movement, he has become it's focal point, and the rest of his administration has catalyzed what may become the 3rd great awakening for this country.

Granted illegal immigration has been going on for decades, but it hasn't gotten as serious as it has until recently. What concerns me is, this infiltration is only the tip of the iceberg. It's only a matter of time before another serious attack is committed and thousands, maybe millions of Americans die. If this happens it will be a direct result of the derelicition of duty this administration practices in it's misguided attempt to garner the votes of legal minorities.

Right ... some sour grapes neo-conservative makes **** up and then you call it reality because it suits your Tea Party agenda of Obama/Dem/Lib referendum / impeachment ... America has been on to you since the Palin Death panels ...

By the way, where's Cheney on his National Security Obama bash ?
