I know I am quite out of my league here, but will still add my comment. What is this blog all about?? I just happen to stumble upon this... Isn't time being wasted here, by bludgeoning opponents with your opinion? If this really served a purpose, you would make a comment and leave satisfied. But you aren't ... you keep coming back again and again. Shouldn't we be out recruiting those who believe what we believe, and make sure they get to the polls this November to vote in the one who will be the best man to preserve our nation, our rights, our standards, our securities, etc.?? I have said what I meant to say ... and I will now leave satisfied, not to return.

we'll be reminded of what? of the sorry state of both parties and how it is they perpetuate domestic and international catastrophes? take your pick and blame whomever the hell ya want (personally my vote goes for the electorate). either way, the republican/democrat candidate says something that makes ya wet and giddy; the savior of all woes brought about by THEM, you know, those freaks on the other side. carter's day isn't today. i don't know if anybody has seen there aren't as many countries enamored by the us of a. the price of gasoline will not return to what most perceive as normal. hey, but we can pull out another can of whoop ass and spread that good old country hospitality, you know, like mom, apple pie and chevrolet. or we can take back the country from those heathens on the other side. you know, those baby eaters who aim to open pandora's box. oh, the box was open? when you say? that long ago. yeah, any president is gonna fix all the shit, it'll only take as long as it take to bake one of them there swanson tv dinners.

I remember the Carter years well. As a 17 year old on Nov of '76, I had to sit helplessly by & watch him get elected. Gas was up over $2.00 per gallon @ one time in '79, and you had to wait in line to get it ! Inflation was double-digit Interest rates were almost 14% !!! It was like buying your home with a credit card ! Last but not least, the straw that broke the peanut-farmers back was sending 5 helicopters with special forces to rescue our hostages in Iran, only to lose 3 of them in the desert. I've been alive long enough to learn one thing about Democratic presidents. They declare the boogie-man dead, and carve military budgets to dangerous levels, so that our enimies get encouraged. My prediction is Obama will win, and within 2-3 years, we'll be reminded why we keep re-electing republicans.

Nuclear Weapons * A Record of Results: The gravest danger to the American people is the threat of a terrorist attack with a nuclear weapon and the spread of nuclear weapons to dangerous regimes. Obama has taken bipartisan action to secure nuclear weapons and materials: 1. He joined Senator Dick Lugar in passing a law to help the United States and our allies detect and stop the smuggling of weapons of mass destruction throughout the world. 2. He joined Senator Chuck Hagel to introduce a bill that seeks to prevent nuclear terrorism, reduce global nuclear arsenals, and stop the spread of nuclear weapons. 3. And while other candidates have insisted that we should threaten to drop nuclear bombs on terrorist training camps, Obama believes that we must talk openly about nuclear weapons – because the best way to keep America safe is not to threaten terrorists with nuclear weapons, it's to keep nuclear weapons away from terrorists. * Secure Loose Nuclear Materials from Terrorists: Obama will secure all loose nuclear materials in the world within four years. While we work to secure existing stockpiles of nuclear material, Obama will negotiate a verifiable global ban on the production of new nuclear weapons material. This will deny terrorists the ability to steal or buy loose nuclear materials. * Strengthen the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty: Obama will crack down on nuclear proliferation by strengthening the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty so that countries like North Korea and Iran that break the rules will automatically face strong international sanctions. * Toward a Nuclear Free World: Obama will set a goal of a world without nuclear weapons, and pursue it. Obama will always maintain a strong deterrent as long as nuclear weapons exist. But he will take several steps down the long road toward eliminating nuclear weapons. He will stop the development of new nuclear weapons; work with Russia to take U.S. and Russian ballistic missiles off hair trigger alert; seek dramatic reductions in U.S. and Russian stockpiles of nuclear weapons and material; and set a goal to expand the U.S.-Russian ban on intermediate- range missiles so that the agreement is global. Building a 21st Century Military * The Problem: The excellence of our military is unmatched. But as a result of a misguided war in Iraq, our forces are under pressure as never before. Obama will make the investments we need so that the finest military in the world is best-prepared to meet 21st-century threats. * Rebuild Trust: Obama will rebuild trust with those who serve by ensuring that soldiers and Marines have sufficient training time before they are sent into battle. * Expand the Military: We have learned from Iraq that our military needs more men and women in uniform to reduce the strain on our active force. Obama will increase the size of ground forces, adding 65,000 soldiers to the Army and 27,000 Marines. * New Capabilities: Obama will give our troops new equipment, armor, training, and skills like language training. He will also strengthen our civilian capacity, so that our civilian agencies have the critical skills and equipment they need to integrate their efforts with our military. * Strengthen Guard and Reserve: Obama will restore the readiness of the National Guard and Reserves. He will permit them adequate time to train and rest between deployments, and provide the National Guard with the equipment they need for foreign and domestic emergencies. He will also give the Guard a seat at the table by making the Chief of the National Guard a member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

To be fair not all the ideas are bad. I think the RRW, or reliable replacement warhead is not needed and is simply a bone to keep DOE jobs at the nuclear labs - nuclear welfare, if you will. A global ban on fissile material would be nice, but that would require a renegotiation of the NPT which simply ain't gonna happen because the nuclear weapon's states would have to provide some quid pro quo in return. More importantly, however, is that Obama can't make these unilateral spending decisions. Congress gets to decide what to spend on the armed forces and how much and Obama won't have a line-item veto, so his promise to cut billions in defense spending is a pipe dream. He can try to reprioritize the QDR all he wants, but those efforts go off the deep end, the services have their friends in Congress who will be earmarking mofo's if Obama tries to play those games. As a Senator, he knows how the system works, so to me, this is just the same kind of empty promises most politicians make to appease their base - promises they know have zero chance of being met.

"Doesn’t it seem quite at odds with his 52 seconds of disarmament blather? I mean, how can one person be pro-war with a (questionable) ally, and no-nukes at the same time? This is something that does not add up." It all makes perfect sense for someone who has absolutely no clue as to what he is talking about. The really pertinent question regarding his Foreign Policy proposals is "Does he rally understand the implications of what he is spouting?" And from my perspective the answer is fighteningly simple - NO!

"And almost every test shows improvement" Improvement means the missile nuke hits vegas instead of LA. I could not agree more! Face up to it, the genie has been let out of the bottle. What could be more geopolitically democratic than national nukes? There is no shield against suitcase nukes. And you want more billions to fight missiles?
