Will the Real Obama Please Stand Up?

Does Barack Obama suffer from multiple personality syndrome?
 
In the wake of falling poll ratings and the release of a new poll showing that voters do not trust him or the Democratic Party when it comes to the defense of our nation, Barack Obama has been pivoting away from the positions he has long held regarding the military and national security. He voted on a bill lthat granted telecom companies immunity from prosecution involving surveillance against suspected terrorists. Then he told a tale about wanting to join the military when he was graduating from high school (a story that did not show up in either of his two lengthy autobiographies).

And now he tells us that he wants to increase defense spending! This flies in the face of promises he made during the Democratic primary to slash defense spending and use the money to satisfy special
interest groups.


This weekend, Senator Obama was asked for an example of a time when he bucked his party," McCain said, referring to Obama's appearance on "This Week" with George Stephanopoulos. "His answer was defense spending. He says now he wants to increase it, but during the primary he told a liberal advocacy group that he'd cut defense spending by tens of billions of dollars. And he promised them he would quote 'slow our development of future combat systems.'"


Here's a link to the video.

;In 52 seconds, he rattles off what an Obama presidency would mean for our national defense; slowing down of existing programs to build new weapons, cutting "tens of billions" of dollars in "wasteful" spending, scrapping missile defense completely, and setting up an "independent defense priority review board" (you can imagine the anti-defense liberals sitting on that board) to make sure we don't waste any money building "unnecessary" weapons.

That's not all. Obama wishes upon a star for a "nuclear free world" and to that end, he will not allow any new designs for nukes nor will be build any new ones. He wants to talk to the Russians about re-targeting our missiles and "deep cuts" in our nuclear arsenal.
