Before the Presidential election in 2008, I didn’t think Barack Obama was qualified to serve as President of the United States. Look back into the archives of this site and you will find numerous posts where I questioned his experience and the constant changing of his responses.
It’s now April of 2010, and I still don’t think he’s qualified to serve as President of the United States. Put aside any differences about health care, immigration, or any other social issues. Put aside any differences on his Marxist ties, his socialist views, or the fact he is working hand in hand with Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid to kill capitalism in America.
To prove my point, you only have to listen when he speaks about any other subject. Wait until you read what he says about rogue states and terrorist organizations for example.
“We are going to want to make sure that we can continue to move towards less emphasis on nuclear weapons to make sure that our conventional weapons capability is an effective deterrent in all but the most extreme circumstances.”
Yes, the President of the United States actually told every enemy country, every rogue state, and every terrorist looking to spill American blood that no matter what they do to our citizens America will not do whatever it takes to defend itself.
Mr. Obama’s strategy is a sharp shift from those of his predecessors and seeks to revamp the nation’s nuclear posture for a new age in which rogue states and terrorist organizations are greater threats than traditional powers like Russia and China.
It eliminates much of the ambiguity that has deliberately existed in American nuclear policy since the opening days of the cold war. For the first time, the United States is explicitly committing not to use nuclear weapons against nonnuclear states that are in compliance with the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty, even if they attacked the United States with biological or chemical weapons or launched a crippling cyberattack.
The President of the United States is also the Commander-in-Chief of our armed forces. I don’t see how he can effectively perform his duties as CiC if he is unwilling to take a strong stance with our enemies.
Weakening our rights, weakening our economy, and now weakening our stance with foreign countries.
Barack Obama is a weak President and all the evidence was there long before people stepped into the voting booth. It’s a shame many people were too blind to see that.
