Obama’s national security address

In what has been described by the news media as a “major speech” on National Security, President Obama began by getting the name of his own Secretary of Defense wrong, calling him “Wiliam” Gates. Oops

But, then, the teleprompter came on, and the president was back on message.

Using his amazing powers of hindsight, President Obama decided that the national security policy of “the last eight years” was based on fear mongering, and not on foresight.

But, I’ll leave it to others to dissect his speech.

After listening to President Bush give many national security speeches at military bases, it was unusual, and a little unsettling to listen to Preznit Obama’s version of a national security address: a highly politicized address in front of a cheerleading crowd. It sounded at times like an ACORN rally. I half-expected the drones to break into a “yes we can” chant.

I’ll also say this. If anyone was expecting Obama to begin taking responsibility for his administration, they must be disappointed. I lost count of the number of times that Obama referred to “the last eight years,” and I’ll have to wait for the transcript to get a count. But, make no mistake, Obama blamed Bush for everything but the actual 9/11 attacks, although I’m confident that many in the audience not only believed that 9/11 was an inside job, they also continue to believe that George W. Bush is the devil incarnate.

In November of 2008, the American people elected a new president. We didn’t elect a savior.

Come down off your cross, Mr. Obama. This messiah act has worn very, very thin.

The Right Decision

from WaPo

obama_reversesPresident Obama will oppose the release of several dozen photos depicting abuse of detainees held in U.S. military custody abroad, reversing his previous position on the grounds that the pictures could inflame anti-American sentiment and endanger U.S. troops.

In announcing the shift today, the White House said in a statement that Obama “strongly believes that the release of these photos, particularly at this time, would only serve the purpose of inflaming the theaters of war, jeopardizing US forces, and making our job more difficult in places like Iraq and Afghanistan.”

Thank you Mr. Obama. This is the correct decision. Now, in the interests of National Security, please take the next step and issue an executive order to seal the photos.

Obama is weak on national security

Just how weak is Barry Obama on National Defense?  He sounds like a George McGovern democrat to me.  See for yourself, in his own words….
