Obama's Strongest Adjectives

Mark Steyn shares his thoughts on Barack Obama's fecklessness when it comes to threats from Barack Obama. Here's a sampling:

The president's general line on the geopolitical big picture is: I don't need this in my life right now. He's a domestic transformationalist, working overtime – via the banks, the automobile industry, health care, etc. – to advance statism's death grip on American dynamism. His principal interest in the rest of the world is that he doesn't want anyone nuking America before he's finished turning it into a socialist basket case. As the comedian Andy Borowitz put it, "President Obama said that the United States was prepared to respond to the threat with 'the strongest possible adjectives'."

Does North Korea having a nuclear DEVICE change anything fundamental?

"A United States government currently borrowing 50 cents for every dollar it spends cannot afford its global role, and thus the Obama cuts to missile defense and other programs have a kind of logic: You can't be Scandinavia writ large with a U.S.-sized military." Mark Steyn

Apparently it flew under Mark Steyn's radar that OBAMA! is trying to one-up GWB by INCREASING US military spending...

"Next to unnoticed in the Obama
budget which just cleared the House were calls for a $US 21 Billion increase to $US 534 Billion in US
“defence” spending for 2010. That is $US 6.7 Billion more than the Bush administration had projected.
The fact that the Obama administration is INCREASING US military spending is simply being ignored."
