President Obama said to the New York Times this week that his new nuclear policy is part of “broader effort to edge the world toward making nuclear weapons obsolete, and to create incentives for countries to give up any nuclear ambitions.” Obama’s “Kumbaya” approach to national security is dangerous and signals weakness to evil empires that exist.
Last week, Obama announced that he was open to offshore-drilling initiatives, confusing conservatives who favor a “drill, baby, drill” policy. “In exchange for what?” Republicans wondered. Fox News’ contributor and columnist Dick Morris said he believed this was Obama’s move to appear as more of a centrist President after he pushed through healthcare legislation, the most partisan bill in the history of the United States.
Today’s headlines of Obama’s nuclear follies prove otherwise. Obama has signaled yet again that he is the most radically liberal president the United States has ever seen. Centrist? Yeah right.
While at times it frustrates me that conservatives continue to idolize former President Ronald Regan instead of finding a more modern outlet to spread the sense and logic of limited government, fiscal restraint and strong national security, you just can’t deny that Reagan was just always so darn right.
Reagan’s March 8, 1983 speech to the National Association of Evangelicals in Orlando, Florida: “In your discussions of the nuclear freeze proposals, I urge you to beware the temptation of pride, the temptation of blithely declaring yourselves above it all and label both sides equally at fault, to ignore the facts of history and the aggressive impulses of an evil empire, to simply call the arms race a giant misunderstanding and thereby remove yourself from the struggle between right and wrong and good and evil.”
