Obama's Threat About A Second Term

While President Obama was in Seoul, South Korea, his voice was caught on an open mike that he didn't know was live. He made a most revealing and really ominous statement. He told Russian President Dimitri Medvedev, "This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility." Obama's clear meaning was that, if he is reelected, he is prepared to cave in to Russian demands that we cut our anti-missile defenses, but he needs to wait until after the November election. Medvedev responded, "I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir [Putin]."

Obama's second term can take us over the cliff and leave us at the mercy of countries that threaten us with nuclear missiles. Our U.S. government has no higher moral obligation than to protect the American people from nuclear attack. Yet, Obama frequently expresses some really dangerous ideas about national defense. He talks about wanting a nuclear-free world, which is impossible. Nuclear technology is out of the bottle and there's no way to squeeze it back in. We live in a hostile world where many powerful countries don't like us and are consumed with envy of our power and our wealth. Some of them are working to develop nuclear missiles, especially Iran and North Korea.

The security of the United States absolutely requires that we have an anti-missile system that can shoot down enemy missiles before they kill Americans. The number-one duty of our government is to provide for the common defense. President Reagan understood this and, despite all the demands of the Soviet Union, Reagan never retreated on his plan to build an anti-missile defense. Obama's statements that he "wants to reduce our nuclear stockpiles" and wants a nuclear-free world are so very dangerous. If he is reelected, he will make America a sitting duck for the evil countries determined to build their own nuclear weapons and destroy us.
