And the Media Ignores It
Published on July 21, 2008 By Island Dog In Democrat

There is just so much to this story, and it really proves how the media is completely backing Obama.  At a speech in Colorado Springs on July 2nd, Barack Hussein Obama made this statement...

"We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded."

Of course Obama never gives specifics, but this is an extraordinary statement.  First let me say, can you imagine what the left and the media would be saying if McCain said anything like this?  However, when Obama says it.....nothing.....nothing at all. 

In fact, only a few newspapers printed the transcripts of the speech, but the transcripts don't match the video of the speech.  So did the media just print a copy of the speech provided by the Obama camp, or are they just ignoring the drastic additions made to this speech?  Either way it's a disgrace, as Obama's notion of a civilian "security force" has not been challenged by any media organization. 

Of course the main source of this information is blogs, which in this election will be our only reliable source of information about the "real" Obama.  Wouldn't you think the media should ask some serious questions about this?  Obviously, the Obama fan brigade is labeling this as a Peace Corps type thing.  Sorry, but "national security force" that is "just about powerful" as our military is not the same as a Peace Corps.

Face it  B.Hussein Obama can walk on water, turn water into brandy and will win all 57 states in November.

I find confusing information online. What is Obama's stance on Gun Control and the 2nd Amendment?

Makes sense to me.  Disarm Americans, create your "security force".  Funny how liberals are the first one to call Bush a facist.

My question is why must we emphasize Barack's middle name like it means something? It is just a name. It will save space and typing time to just say "Obama". We all get it. Also, protecting the nation sounds like a good thing to me.

Protecting the nation from what, or whom? Last time I checked we had a national security force. It is called the CIA, DIA, FBI, U.S. Marshals, CBP, the Coast Guard, State police, State Militia and local police. We need more people with guns in our streets?

This is simply an "idea" to take the strain off of the military in this nation. They are already suffering with many problems. I highly doubt that anyone is suggesting to arm civilians and provide authority to protect at their own personal whims. As was mentioned in the article by ID, this is a vague statement Obama provided to probably gain some support in the armed services; I wouldn't take it to such extremes as allowing people to apply their own brand of vigilante protection. I see this statement as more of a call to emphasize the support of those groups you mentioned for Federal and State enforcement.

Having been in the military my reaction to what he said is; he has no idea what he is talking about unless he plans to have a shadow government. Why else would he need his own military? Or maybe he does not understand once he becomes president he has his own military. Like Doc said I have visions of brown shirt dancing in my head.

They are already suffering with many problems.


The only problem the military is suffering right now is lack of support from half the politicians in this country.

this is a vague statement Obama provided to probably gain some support in the armed services;


A statement that says he does not trust or want the military we have. He does not want or trust the civilian security force we have and how is he going to pay for this security force. In stead of bring down budget he is proposing things to double the military budget by creating a civilian security force that gets the same amount of money as our current military. Will he then take it a step further double up on homeland security or CIA or the FBI? How much tax money does he think we have to pay and still pay our bills?

I see this statement as more of a call to emphasize the support of those groups you mentioned for Federal and State enforcement.


I truly hope you are wrong because that is not how to do it.

You're on the wrong topic, there's a thread discussing the use of Barry's name in the general politics forum.

If every legitimate Obama critic is called an Arab or black hater, how do you EVER expect Obama to unite Republicans and Democrats, or even be respected?

Last, but not least, this idea is NOT Obama's creation. Rather, he's adopting it from a high-powered, very wealthy organization, Be the Change inc. Look it up here...

Yes, National Service is much bigger than Obama...

And you guys call us Democrats paranoid!!  Please I have heard Obama talk about what you are refering to personally.  And what(of course) you guys dont say here is that he has talked about this national security force as something that will have the CIA, NSA, FBI, and etc. in it, or apart of it however you want to look at it.  What he is proposing is something that many have suggested including many conservatives.  That is that we have these agencies working together.  We need this espeically after the huge miscalculations made by these agencies individually.  Oh but we dont talk about that anymore because it was 5 years ago and a mistake made by Bush. 

Also all I can think of these guys that use Obama's middle name is that they are like all of these conservative talk show hosts who like to try and stir things up rather than concentrait on whats best for the country and their party, they focus on their ratings, and these guys soak it up.....Teaching hate is a very powerful and dangerous thing.  Just remeber we are all people and we all bleed red.  Or as Martin Luther King said "just me on the content of my character, not the color of my skin."

My question is why, when the topic is as serious as a 'national security force' the most important thing you can find to whine about is how one chooses to address the man? I happen to LIKE using B.Hussein Obama, and the main reason I like it so much is because it always, and I mean ALWAYS drives a bug straight up the Obamabots' collective arses.

 

This is very contradictory, on one hand you are saying lets focus on the seriousness and not how his name is adressed, and then in the next sentence you say something as foolish the only reason you use it is because you enjoy how it hurts another person....can you say divider, and childish. 

P.S. no need for swear words here either, which was in your next statement.
