Obama Bluffs on Defending Hawaii

Assigned Reading: Aloha, ‘Star Wars’
(FROM: The Washington Times)

This editorial in the Times ran on Monday, but considering the missile test touted by North Korea does not happen until Saturday–Independence Day–I felt it was still pertinent.

This is an issue that the Republican Party must own in advance of the 2010 midterm. Under Bill Clinton, the intercept speeds of our ballistic missile defense systems were restricted. And now, under Barack Obama, funding has been cut, operations already in place have been scaled back, research and development has been stymied, and hosts like Poland who banked on U.S. commitment to the system are being left high and dry.

The Obama administration’s attitude toward missile defense and, given what he’s done with Gitmo and our intelligence services, national security in general will serve as a weakness for the Democrats in 2010 and beyond — if the GOP is ready, willing and able to remind the American people of it.

    Us Tennesseeans can take and hold Washington. Now, missile defense is way out of our league. This needs to be corrected.

    In the words of my son, "I'll bet Hawaii is sorry they voted for Obama."

    I'll bet that the Czar in charge of Concealment of Hawaii Vital Records is sorry, too!

    The state of Hawaii is usually too stoned to realize they are in range. :)

    Aloha Hawaii. We don't have to worry the nuke strike there will destroy his birth certificate, because he doesn't have one.

    It's time to dust off your copy of the movie "Red Dawn" and watch it with the family, and/or neighborhood. We are coming to the point this country will need to be defended, either from without or within.

    Wow, elections have consequences, Sucks to be you Hawaii. Better luck next election.

    do u think N.Korea would actually launch anything at the US, wouldnt that be sure suicide?

    no one is laucnhing anything towards US or its allies, but the paranoia will definetly fund the military-industrial complex that President Eisenhower warned us of.

    Huh, why shouldn't they? All the camel molesters in Saudia and Afghanistan who financed and orchestrated 9/11 attack are still doing fine! We'll probably apogolize to North Korea, pledge our undying devotion to peace and, as a sign of goodwill, refund their missile cost.

    I salute Rix and am ready to report for duty.

    Just a minute while I turn around to my Silver Star awarded dad and tell him Hitler was an alright guy.
