gates does not understand that parochial interests regarding defense are necessary and any cancellation only insures that this country will be in no position to defend herself when attacked - and indeed - we will be attacked and very soon! obama is signalling that he will insure that we are vulnerable and america will be obliterated! his actions and rhetoric are ample evidence of his intentions!!

It's also wanting to cut back on needed missile defense systems.

While other parts of the world are ramping up with missiles, there is idiot Obama and his administration wanting to cut us back.

Always a step behind the world he is. Wants them all to spend themselves into oblivion like we are, they say "go pound."

The rest of the world condemns Russia for invading Georgia?

He blames GEORGIA, like blaming the rape victim for the rape.

NOW, he's going to scale back our missile defense, while he was in EUROPE trying to ease concerns that he was going to reneg on our promise for the missile defense system in Poland.

Obama is a moron, plain and simple. He doesn't know what he's doing, and he was a terrible mistake.

Only way to correct him is to vote OUT every single democrat you can, starting with your local boards, city councils, your park districts, etc.

Just get RID of EVERY single democrat you can. Send them home.

And do the same thing in 2010. Send them home.

Has anyone seen the details yet on what's to be cut? Have you seen it in writing? How much of it is actually in need of being cut?
