these statements alone will win millions of votes for McCain. This Obama novice is a rank amateur idealist with zero understanding of the world we live in.
So, how's the satellite that was heading for Earth doing?
Mr. Obama is a child when it comes to the world.
He thinks that all we have to do to succeed in the world is hold talks with governments that hate our guts.
To state his foreign policy in a nut shell: “Talk is precious, action is cheap.”
He is a very, very dangerous man. America must remain strong militarily. Period.
So by change, he apparently means that he will weaken our nations ability to defend itself from enemies sworn to destroy us. Fools.
Democrats gut our military and Republicans have to spend the money to build it back up.
Clinton “coasted” on the Reagan defense build up.
If you want peace prepare for war.
Was it Cicero or one of the Cato’s who said that? It was true over 2000 years ago and history has shown, over and over and over, that it is true today.
Obama’s position is typical leftist claptrap. It will lead inevitably to more violence and war and not less.
Obama is a fool.
McCain has so much material to use...but will he use it?...or will he run a lame campaign ala the senior’Bush and Dole?
CAREFUL ON CDI>>>Theresa Hitchins appears to be another of the Commie Arms Control types awa on the Editorial Board of the notorious Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists.
Besides her duties as CDI director, Hitchens leads CDIs Space Security Project. The author of Future Security In Space: Charting a Cooperative Course, she also continues to write on space and nuclear arms control issues for a number of outside publications. She serves on the editorial board of The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, and is a member of Women in International Security and the International Institute for Strategic Studies.

I will cut investments in unproven missile defense systems.It has proven itself, both sea based, land based, and air launched, over and over again. He is either criminally ignorant, or an out and out liar.
I will not weaponize space.While our adversaries do so.
I will slow our development of future combat systems. I will set a goal of a world without nuclear weapons. To seek that goal, I will not develop new nuclear weapons....and put us all at ultimate risk as our adversaries continue to develop theirs.
As Thomas Pain said about guns in general, "The supposed quietude of a good mans allures the ruffian; while on the other hand, arms like laws discourage and keep the invader and the plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property. The same balance would be preserved were all the world destitute of arms, for all would be alike; but since some will not, others dare not lay them aside...Horrid mischief would ensue were one half the world deprived of the use of them..."
Is there anything these piece of mussie-dung wouldn’t do to favor the enemy? Please name something so I can figure out why any US citizen would vote for this gasbag.
If you believe America is a bully, that we are in a hopeless mess due to entrenched, unamed political/corporate elites, that we are no better than other cultures or lands, and that foreign dictatorships have moral equality with our own - then these statements make perfect sense.
So, he is running on a platform of intentionally and dramatically weakening the United States in an increasingly dangerous world. Good luck with that.
Obama aims to polarize America, probably leading to violence in the streets before the election.
Therein lies the most important question
Obama knows what he’s doing: surrendering oue nation to his faith.
Note, "I will end it" not, "I will win it". Democrats. Is there any not to question their patriotism?
It all makes sense when you realize Obama is rooting for the other side.
